Our match prediction:
Against all odds, Olympiakos suffered elimination to Hapoel Be’er Sheva in the Champions League third qualifying round. However, they did well to make amends for the poor performance, with the team beating Arouca (1-0) in the Europa League play-off, first leg. The Thrylos are on the right track to book their place in the Europa League group stages, but they need to take the return leg very seriously. Over the years Olympiakos have turned their Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki into a real fortress and, taking everything into account, home win appears on the horizon. Arouca head into the match with the lack of confidence and we predict that they are going to return home empty-handed. It has to be noted that the Portuguese side are after their first ever away win in the Europa League. Nigerian attacker Brown Ideye is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts against Arouca.
