Olympiacos vs Tottenham for the UEFA Champions League group match on Wednesday at Karaiskakis Stadium.
Here you can see the prediction Olympiacos vs Tottenham for the debut match of this season’s Champions League. The game takes place on 09/18/2019, Wednesday, in Greece. In this post, we also present our free betting tip for the match.
The Olympiacos team finished second in last season’s Greek Championship, so they got a place in the Champions League 2nd Qualifying Round. The team went into an excellent run for qualifying for the group stage of the tournament. They have won 5 of the 6 matches they have played and tied 1. In the playoffs, they have won Krasnodar twice, the first by 4 × 0 at home and the return game by 2 × 1.
The team currently holds an incredible mark, between last season’s games, friendlies and current season have not lost in 25 games, being 19 wins and 6 draws. Thus, it shows excellent performance to try to advance in the Champions League, but a challenging mission for a group with Tottenham and Bayern Munich.
Tottenham’s side were finalists in the last Champions League after a historic semi-final against Ajax with the winning goal 6 minutes into the second half. Thus, the team turned the match after losing 2 × 0 playing away from home. Won their place in this edition after finishing 4th in the Premier League, however, secured the last place for the tournament.
For this season they acquired the reinforcement of midfielder Tanguy Ndombélé, which was the most expensive acquisition in the club’s history. In the national championship match, the team comes from a good 4 × 0 home win against Newcastle. The team scored all goals in the first half, so only controlled the match in the second half.
We have a match with a favourite who plays away from home. Tottenham arrives as the team to beat in the group. They will certainly fight for the rating and for that they need to ensure points as a visitor. On the other hand, it is up to Olympiacos to play defensively, even in front of their fans.
We know that Olympiacos counterattacking power may be limited by Tottenham’s strong defence, so we will have a match where midfield play will be critical for both teams. To our free betting tip, we also believe Tottenham will confirm their favouritism and add up essential points.
