Premier League

The 1st ever match for Man U against Omonia with the field having tall grass besides.

Manchester United picked up three points after defeating Omonia Nicosia on Thursday, October 6. It was the first ever match for Manchester United against Crypriot opposition. Omonia now sits bottom of the group E after their three defeats. Despite Omonia being one of the Cyprus' most successful football club, it has only won just three trophies in the last ten years.

However, before the match, Manchester United uploaded the Omonia's stadium on social media which looked grassy besides the field.

The GSP stadium was built in 1999 with the surface having natural grass. The stadium is also the largest one in Cyprus and Omonia shares it with fellow Nicosia-based clubs such as APOEL and Olympiakos. In addition it is the home stadium of the Cyprus national team.

However, it was the best moment for Manchester United after winning the match in Cyprus in which they were in complete control of both the first and second halfs. They also responded with a good attacking performance therefore scoring three goals.
