The preparation of Omonia for tomorrow's match with Doxa for the 3rd match of the championship continues and is completed without a breath. The Greens returned in the early hours of Friday with a draw from Kazakhstan and immediately got to work. The capital team is volatile, both in its results and in its performance in Europe and the league, an element it has rarely had in the past with Berg on the bench.
The “clover” showed in the 4-2 with Antwerp that it can play attacking football, unfolded impressive combinations and revealed elements reminiscent of last year's team. On this image, then, the Norwegian wants to build and restore his team. Because in the derby with AEK the picture was also worrying, while the concern for easy goals was confirmed in the “Arena”. On the other hand, Omonia reaches the source (rival home) and does not drink water (does not score). An element that was also missing for most of the previous season.
Caution. The two rosters are not compared, nor is this year downgraded. What is emphasized is that there are points where Omonia seems weak and has already lost the first three points in the championship. The defensive function… came in, but with Kairat the change of system (trio in defense) paid off and it is not excluded that the Norwegian will try it again in the domestic obligations.
There are footballers in the greens who have not found their good self last year. The reason for Abdullahi Sehou and Yordi Gometh, whose performance is not the usual.. At the same time, Berg has to deal with an unprecedented situation with injuries. Giannis Kousoulos, Mix Diskerout, Eric Boteak and Fotis Papoulis are on the absentee list. They are front line players, which is why their absence was and is felt. Let's not forget that Thomas Hubochan was also out. So the situation in Omonia has two sides. It may, but it takes time. It showed the required elements and this is the most encouraging.
