Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Neo GSP Stadium will host Thursday’s football game between Omonia and Granada. The Cypriotes did well to hold PAOK to a draw in Thessaloniki in their Europa League opener, but they suffered a 2-1 loss to PSV in their second group game. Omonia are eager to record their first Europa League win since 2016, but they will have a big fish to fry against Granada. The La Liga side kicked off their Europa League campaign with a 2-1 win over PSV, with the team playing out a goalless draw with PAOK in round 2.
Los Granadinos aim to get their job done in Group E as soon as possible, and a win over Omonia will see them move one step closer to booking their place in last 32. Even though Roberto Soldado is likely to miss the game through illness (coronavirus), away win should be considered as Granada are more of a team than Omonia.
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 (Granada):
Granada are an Andalusian football club that plays in Spanish La Liga. The club were founded on 14 April, 1931 and they have yet to win the Primera Division trophy. El Grana, though, booked their place in the Spanish Cup final in 1959, but Barcelona proved to be a big catch for the Andalusian outfit.
Granada host their rivals at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes, the stadium that was built in 1995. The capacity of the stadium is 23,934. Granada’s main rivals are fellow Andalusian team Sevilla, but Real Betis are regarded as the club’s bitter rivals as well.
The likes of Yacine Brahimi, Juan Aguero, Gustavo Benitez, Pahinho, Denis Milar, Julio Montero Castillo, Capi, Cesar and Jose Mingorance are famous players that were part of the Estadio El Sadar outfit in the past. The original colour of Granada’s kits were blue and white, but after the Spanish Civil War the club chiefs bought new ones (red and white).
