Banants 0 - 1 Omonia
Derbyshire 26'

Omonia has the clear advantage in their two-legged affair with Banants. The Cypriot side earned an important 0-1 away victory in Armenia for the first leg. Former Olympiacos striker, Matt Derbyshire, scored the only goal of the game with a nice diving header in the 26th minute. Omonia will host Banants in Nicosia next Thursday for the second leg. A win or draw will see them through while a 0-1 loss will send the teams into extra time. A loss for Omonia with any other score will give Banants the ticket to the 2nd Qualifying Round.
