It was therfore crucial for the visitors to win, to stay in the race for the final Europa League qualifying spot, as second-placed AEK Larnaca were 16 points ahead with six matches (including Saturday’s) to be played.

Freire got hosts Limassol off to the perfect start, putting his side in the lead with just 13 minutes played.

Omonia manager Vladan Milojević had a tough task on his hands at the half-time break, with his team needing two second-half goals to collect all three points.

His team talk between the intervals seemed to work; substitute Andre Schembri scored a late brace to send the away fans into raptures.

The win sees Omonia leapfrog Limassol into third place with 58 points, one ahead of their rivals.
