NICOSIA - League leaders Anorthosis Famagusta will take on Cyprus Coca-Cola Cup holders Omonia in the quarterfinals following Thursday’s draw in Nicosia.
The other pairings in the draw include Ayia Napa v Apollon, Enosis Neon Paralimniou v AEK Larnaca and AEP v AEL.
“We are positive that we will see two great games”, commented Omonia press officer Andreas Demetriou. “We believe in ourselves. We may have fallen behind in the league but I still believe that there isn’t too much separating the teams in terms of quality. With our fans on our side, we will try and get through this round. We are aiming to become the first Cypriot side to win the Cup for the third consecutive time.”
Omonia, who are fifth in the league, are having an indifferent season in the league but have come out strong in the Cup competition in the last two seasons and must now focus on the same competition if they are not to finish this year empty handed.
