Omonia Nicosia and Qarabag will battle for three points in Group H of the UEFA Europa Conference League on Thursday.

The home side come into the game on the back of a 1-1 dome draw with Paphos in the Cyprus First Division on Sunday.

Qarabag also played out the same scoreline away to Keshla in the Azerbaijan Premier League a day earlier. Abdelleh Zoubir and Aldair Neto scored in either half to share the spoils.

All the teams in Group H are currently tied at one point apiece, having all played a goalless draw on matchday one two weeks ago. Basel and Kairat are the other two teams who make up the group.

Omonia Nicosia vs Qarabag Prediction

The two sides have compact, low-block styles of play and this means that the game could be one of very few goalscoring chances.

Qarabag have been the more consistent side in recent weeks but Omonia will be banking on their strong home form to see them through. Although a goalless draw is the most likely result, we fancy the visitors to do enough to nick a narrow victory.

Prediction: Omonia Nicosia 0-1 Qarabag
