The Olympiakos vs Osmanlispor match will be played on Thursday, at the Georgios Karaiskaki stadium, Piraeus. Olympiakos finished the Europa League group phase on the second place, behind APOEL, while Osmanlispor was the best in their group, in front of Villareal. This is the Europa League first leg in the first round in the knockout phase.
Olympiakos Betting News
Olympiakos is incredible in Greek Super League this season. They are the leaders with 51 points after 20 rounds and they have 13 points more than Panionios on the second place! The joy is even greater if we know that their fierce rivals Panathinaikos are currently 4th, with only 35 points! The situation in domestic league seems clear, so they can focus on Europa League knockout phase. In their last 14 matches in all competitions Olympiakos didn’t lose a match, and they recorded only four draws during that period.
Osmanlispor Betting News
Osmanlispor is currently 9th on the Turkish Super Lig table. They were hoping for another top five finish in the league, but it is unlikely to happen. They won’t have any problems with avoiding the relegation, so they will probably focus on Europa League. They played great in the group phase and finished in front of Villarreal, which was the biggest favourite to win the group, but in 2017 they are in a very bad form. They played seven competitive matches in this year and they won only one of them, against the tier three Turkish team in Turkish Cup.
Olympiakos vs Osmanlispor Match Betting Prediction
Although Osmanlispor played better in the group phase, Olympiakos is the host and in much better form. Therefore, the Greek team is the favourite to win this game. Since this is the match between a Greek and a Turkish team it will be very fierce and competitive. We believe that Olympiakos will record a victory in the first leg.
