Team News
Omonia Nicosia
Omonia lost former Reims midfielder Moreto Cassama to injury after just 13 minutes of their defeat to Sociedad, and having missed the weekend's triumph over Doxa, the 24-year-old is a major doubt for this contest too.

Hector Yuste was another casualty of Omonia's most recent European game but was fit enough to make the bench at the weekend, and Lennon otherwise has no fresh concerns to report ahead of Thursday's showdown.

Having come off the bench to good effect last time out, Roman Bezus will push to displace Fotis Papoulis in the number 10 role, while ex-Reading attacker Brandon Barker will likely start on the bench upon his return to England.
Omonia possible starting lineup:
Fabiano; Miletic, Yuste, Panagiotou; Matthews, Charalampous, Papoulis, Dikserand, Lecjaks; Ansarifard, Bruno

Manchester United
As for Man United, injury was added to insult at the Etihad when Raphael Varane was forced off with a knock to the ankle after 40 minutes, and while the issue is not thought to be too severe, he will not make the trip to Cyprus.

Harry Maguire will also take a little longer to battle back from a hamstring strain, while Donny van de Beek and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are also absent, but Martin Dubravka has recovered from a muscular problem.

Cristiano Ronaldo was left on the bench at the Etihad out of "respect" according to Ten Hag, who may opt for Martial to lead the line over the five-time Ballon d'Or winner after his late brace as a substitute.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Dalot, Lindelof, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Elanga; Martial
Prediction: Omonia 0-2 Manchester United
