Omonia bounce back with 5-star performance
Omonia Nicosia bounced back after their weekend defeat to Pafos FC and did so with an impressive 5-2 victory over AEK Larnaca in Wednesday’s derby.
Omonoia found themselves leading 2-0 by the ten minute mark after Margaca’s and Derbyshire’s found the back of the net for the hosts. Larena’s stellar free kick pulled one back for AEK, however an own goal from Moysov and a delicate finish by Alex Soares gave Omonoia a decisive 4-1 lead by halftime. Early in the second half, Christofi scored Omonia’s 5th goal of the night before Moysov added a consolation goal for the visitors shaping the final 5-2 scoreline.
The result moves Omonia into 5th place with 6 points (from 3 games) while AEK tasted their first defeat of the season, sitting in second place with nine points from four places.
