Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Estadio do Dragao will host Tuesday’s Champions League game between Porto and Olympiakos. The Portuguese champions suffered a 3-1 loss at Manchester City in their opener, but their display in the Etihad Stadium clash was anything but poor. The Dragons are eager to record their first win of the process, and they will not have a better chance than this to do so. The likes of Marcano and Mbaye are the only absentees in the home team.
The Thrylos, on the other hand, defeated Olympique Marseille thanks to Koka’s goal in the stoppage time. The Greek champions are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Portugal, but given their anything but good away record in European competitions, home win should be considered. The likes of Camara, Cuypers, and Silva are out of contenton for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Claudio Ramos ):
Claudio Ramos is a professional footballer who plays for Primeira Liga side Tondela as a goalkeeper. The 183-cm-tall shot-stopper was born in Vila Nova de Paiva, Portugal, on November 16, 1991, and he played for the likes of Paivense, Academico Viseu, Repesenses, and Vitoria Guimaraes during his youth career.
Claudio Ramos started his senior at Amarante, spending the 2010/2011 season on loan at the lower-league Portuguese club, and in 2011 he signed a loan deal with Tondela. The Portuguese goalkeeper has been playing for Tondela ever since, establishing himself as a first-choice shot-stopper at the club. He made his Primeira Liga debut on November 6, 2011, in a 2-0 win over Paredes, keeping four clean sheets in total in the 2011/2012 season.
Claudio Ramos has two caps for the Portugal U20 team, and he made his debut with the Portugal senior team in a 3-1 win over Scotland at Hampden Park on October 14, 2018. The Tondela goalkeeper wears the No. 1 jersey.
Highlighted Team (Olympiacos):
Olympiakos are regarded as one of the biggest club in Greece. The Thrylos were founded back in 1925 and they play their home games at Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus. The capacity of the stadium is 33 296. In 2016 Olympiakos won their 43rd Greek Superleague trophy and it has to be noted that they clinched their sixth consecutive domestic title.
However, the club’s biggest success came in 1999 as they participated in the Champions League quarter-finals. The Red and whites were beaten by Juventus in the two-legged tie. It is well known that Panathinaikos are considered the club’s bitterest rivals and the two teams share a great and long-standing rivalry.
The likes of AEK and PAOK are regarded as Olympiakos’ fierce opponents as well. The likes of Javier Saviola, Kevin Mirallas, Darko Kovacevic, Lomana LuaLua, Joel Campbell, Rivaldo and Marko Pantelic are notable footballers who played for the club in the past. Olympiakos fans are friends with Red Star Belgrade supporters.
