Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Omonia and Gent go head to head at Neo GSP Stadium in the Europa League playoffs, return leg. Omonia did well to shock (2-0) in Belgium, meaning that they are high on spirits ahead of Thursday’s clash. Neil Lennon is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Belgians a week ago. Talented forward Andronikos Kakoulis will continue to lead the line for the Cypriotes.
Gent, on the other hand, have no other option but to go all guns blazing at Omonia in the reverse fixture. Since the visitors will adopt an attack-minded approach in the decider, we believe that there is a big value in betting on over 2.5 goals. All De Sart, Owusu, and Tissoudali are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team ahead of the trip to Cyprus. A man to watch in the away side will be Belgium international Hugo Cuypers.
Highlighted Player (Adam Lang):
Adam Lang is a Hungarian footballer who plays for Dijon as a centre-back. The centre-back is a product of Veszprem football academy and he continued playing for the club at senior level. Lang scored three goals in 44 appearances in the league for Veszprem, but he played for Gyor and Videoton in his homeland as well.
The player who was born on January 17, 1993 made 57 appearances for Gyor, while playing 23 games for Videoton in the Hungarian top flight. In the autumn of 2016 Adam Lang joined French club Dijon and he has been playing for the Mustards ever since.
The Hungarian defender played 19 games for Dijon in the 2016-17 Ligue 1 campaign, but he failed to find the net for Olivier Dall’ Oglio’s troops during the season. Adam Lang has five caps for Hungary U21 team and he made his debut for the senior team on May 22, 2014 in a 2-2 draw with Denmark.
Highlighted Team (Gent):
Gent are a Belgian football club that plays their home games at Ghelamco Arena. The venue has been the club’s home ground since 2013 and the capacity of the stadium is 20 000. De Buffalo’s participate in the Belgian Pro League and they clinched their first domestic trophy in the 2014/2015 season.
Gent finished the regular part of the season in second place in the standings, but they eventually climbed to the top position in the table in the play-off. The club won their third Belgian Cup trophy in 2010 and it has to be noted that they defeated Club Brugge in the Belgian Super Cup in 2015. Laurent Depoitre scored the winner for Gent three minutes before the final whistle.
A number of top-class players were part of the team in the past and the likes of Victor Fernandez, Johan Boskamp, Bob Peeters, Trond Sollied and Michel Preud’homme are some of notable footballers who played for Gent in the past.
