Karim Hafez starts for Omonia in derby loss
Egyptian defender Karim Hafez started for AC Omonia Nicosia in their 2-0 loss to rivals APOEL FC Saturday evening.
Hafez started at left back for the Cypriots against APOEL FC in the Nicosia derby. His back-line was immediately questioned by APOEL striker Giorgos Efrem who put APOEL up 1-0 in the first nine minutes.
Omonia continued to be on the backfoot the rest of the half as Efrem constantly threatened his opponent’s backline. Three minutes before halftime, Efrem got his second goal, and APOEL went into the break leading their rivals 2-0.
APOEL started the second half similarly to how they started the first, but Omonia were able to keep APOEL from scoring in the second half, as the game ended 2-0 in favor of the league leaders, APOEL FC.
The loss dropped Omonia Nicosia down to fifth place in the league, 13 points behind APOEL.
