Introduction – Aris vs Olympiacos Prediction 2022/2023
In the second leg of the quarterfinals of the Greek Cup, next Wednesday, the 25th, Aris and Olympiacos will face each other. The match will be held at the Kleanthis Vikelidis Stadium, home of Aris, which has a capacity for over 22 thousand fans, and is located in the city of Thessaloniki, Greece.
Playing at home, in the first leg of this match, Olympiacos had the upper hand and defeated Aris, 1-0. Therefore, the visiting team in this second match plays for a draw to secure a spot in the semifinals of the Greek Cup. It is worth noting, however, that in the last four games between the teams, the home team always had the upper hand.
After ending a short but uncomfortable sequence of two consecutive losses over the weekend, Aris is confident in trying to turn things around against Olympiacos. The win that rejuvenated the team happened against Volos, 3-0, in the previous round of the Greek Super League. In that competition, the club moved up to fifth place after the positive result.
In the current season, Aris’ main sector has been defense. In the Greek Super League, for example, the club has only conceded 14 goals in 19 games, that is, less than one per game. However, the team also has good names in attack. The main one is Honduran Luis Palma, who has already scored nine times in the season.
On the other side of the match, Olympiacos enters the field defending an undefeated streak of 15 games. Despite this, in the last round of the Greek Super League, the team could not leave a draw with Atromitos, playing away, 1-1. With the stumble, the team lost third place in the table, which now belongs to PAOK, which tied Olympiacos’ 39 points.
With an average of almost two goals per match, unlike Aris, Olympiacos’ highlight in the season is the offensive system. The team has already scored 33 times in the Greek Super League and only did not score more goals than AEK (38). Individually, despite having established names in the squad like James Rodríguez, the highlight is for Cedric Bakambu, who has eight goals in 2022/2023.
Aris vs Olympiacos Prediction 2022/2023
With the match completely open, Aris and Olympiacos should have a great duel on Wednesday. However, the visiting team should arrive with a slight advantage. It is worth remembering, after all, that the club has not lost in 15 matches and has a superior roster to the Thessaloniki team.
As they only need a draw to secure qualification to the semifinals, it may be interesting to bet on the Olympiacos double chance. However, the odds, at least at the beginning of the game, may not be as interesting. Therefore, it is also worth observing other markets.
Another good opportunity, for example, may be in the ‘under 2.5 goals’. The last three games of Olympiacos had this mark, as well as the four most recent encounters of Aris. Additionally, the tension involved in the game may contribute to a score with this characteristic.
