A goalless draw between Olympiacos and Omonia Nicosia has meant the Greek Super League side will face off against Europes best in the UEFA Champions League.

Olympiacos finished with a 2-0 aggregate score after beating Cypriot side Omonia Nicosia in Piraeus six days earlier.

Two Omonia Nicosia players were unavailable for the match after they tested positive for Covid-19. UEFA’s health committee then requested that the entire squad be subjected to new tests on Monday, to make sure that no infected players take part in this morning’s game.

Mathieu Valbuena and Youssef El-Arabi managed to score one goal each last week, yet couldn’t find the net again in Piraeus.

Brazilian goalkeeper Fabiano for Omonia played his game of the season so far, denying every opportunity by the Greeks. Unfortunately, his efforts between the posts went unrewarded due to Olympiacos’ defence denying Omonia’s attacking force.

Olympiacos will find out their opponents in the group stage on Thursday, while Omonia will play in the group stage of the Europa League.

On Wednesday PAOK hosts Krasnodar, looking to overturn its 2-1 deficit from the first leg and join Olympiacos at the group stage.
