VIDEO: Karim Hafez strikes in Omonia cup victory
Karim Hafez scored his side first goal in the 50th minute; the Egyptian’s low cross from a free-kick was deflected past the helpless goalkeeper and into the back of the net.
Omonia’s second goal came five minutes later, as Portuguese midfielder Margaca doubled his team’s lead and sealed the win.
Omonia’s victory gives them a big advantage ahead of the second leg on the 20th.
The Nicosia-based outfit can now afford a draw or a one-goal defeat and still progress to the quarter-finals.
The youngster joined AC Omonia Nicosia in the 2015 summer transfer window on a season-long loan from Lierse SK, and his performance today is the latest in a string of impressive showings since joining the Cypriot side.
