Olympiakos are the leaders of Greece football for over a decade. The team played only two matches this season but it’s fair to say they already failed the season. Today’s visitors got eliminated from Champions League, losing matchup to Hapoel Beer Sheva, 0-0, 0-1. Such failures cause the teams with big budgets huge losses. There were only two official matches of the season for Greece side.
Arouca and Olympiakos haven’t met earlier. Both teams are known for excellent results at own turf. We can expect Greece champions to play careful in away leg as they have second home leg coming. At the same time, lower-level hosts won’t rush thing against such skilled team so we ca expect to see quite small number of scoring chances.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals.
