Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Olympiakos and Tottenham face each other at Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Wednesday’s program. The Thrylos impressed in the qualifiers for the elite competition, with the team outplaying the likes of Viktoria Plzen, Istanbul Basaksehir and Krasnodar in the process. The Greeks are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Spurs, but given the number of top-class players in the Premier League side, the hosts would be happy with one point from the match.
Mauro Pochettino’s men did remarkably well to make it to the Champions League final last season, but Liverpool eventually proved to be a big catch for Harry Kane and Co. However, seeing that Tottenham made a slow start to the new Premier League season, we do not believe that they are capable of picking up all three points from their Champions League opener.
Highlighted Player (Miguel Guerrero):
Born in Toledo, Spain on 12 July, 1990, Miguel Angel Guerrero started his senior career at Albacete. He played just two matches for Albacete, but he made no less than 60 appearances for the B team between 2009 and 2011.
In 2011 he joined Sporting Gijon B, but he started playing for the first team soon. On 19 August, 2012 Guerrero made his debut for the Asturians in Segunda Division, but he played no moer than 25 minutes in a 2-0 loss to Numancia. Five months later he scored his first goal for Sporting Gijon in a local derby against Real Oviedo.
After scoring 16 goals in 89 appearances for the club between 2012 and 2016, the Spanish attacker signed a two-year deal with Leganes, newly promoted to the Spanish top flight. Guerrero has a contract with Leganes which expires on 30 June, 2018. During his youth career he played for the likes of Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, Getafe, Toledo and Rayo Vallecano.
Highlighted Team (Tottenham):
Tottenham Hotspur are a professional football club based in North London. Spurs host their rivals at White Hart Lane and the capacity of the stadium is 36,284. Tottenham won the Premier League (First Division) trophy in 1950/1951 and 1960/1961 and despite producing terrific displays in the 2015/2016 campaign Mauro Pochettino’s team eventually finished the season in third place in the standings.
Tottenham’s bitter rivals are Arsenal, but Chelsea and West Ham United are regarded as the team’s fierce opponents as well. Spurs have won eight FA Cup trophies, with the team also lifting the 1962/1963 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup title.
Tottenham Hotspur hammered Atletico Madrid in the final of the competition back then (5-1). The likes of David Ginola, Sol Campbell, Teddy Sheringham, Jurgen Klinsmann, Gary Lineker, Luka Modric, Robbie Keane and Gareth Bale are star players that used to play for the White Hart Lane outfit in the past. The colour of Tottenham Hotspur’s home kit is white.
