Omonia in trouble after defeat in Zagreb


Cyprus champions Omonia began their Champions League campaign with a 2-0 away defeat to Dinamo Zagreb in the first leg of their second qualifying round tie.

After a goalless first half, the Greens conceded in the 65th minute before the Croatian giants sealed the win with a second nine minutes from the end.

Omonia now have a tough task trying to get back into the tie in next week’s second leg in Cyprus.
