Krasnodar vs Olympiakos Match Preview
Olympiakos have felt dominant after taking the lead with 30 minutes on the clock but three goals in 11 minutes towards the end of the game come devastating for Krasnodar, as they now host the Greek rivals for the return match of their Champions League Play-offs clash with a four-goal deficit to make up.
Thrylos have thus extended a four-match winning streak ahead of their Super League 1 opener this weekend, showing off rock-solid at the back and surely hoping to do the same at Stadion FK Krasnodar. They’ve beaten Viktoria Plzen (4-0) and Istanbul Basaksehir (3-0) in the Qualifiers already and now boast great confidence as they look for a ticket to the Group stage.
Krasnodar have played more competitive games lately and could be looking to capitalize on the fitness, but seeing their three-match winning streak ended in such manner at Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki will obviously be a great dent. They have been tough to beat at this ground but now have to go for goals from the first whistle.
Bulls have beaten Rubin Kazan (1-0), Porto (2-3), and Tambov (0-2) since early August and building on such records will be important, even if it only means a ticket to the Europa League on Tuesday. They will be no easy targets but making up for the thrashing loss feels next to impossible.
We thus feel Olympiakos are now in a much better place and we’ll back them to show it off in Russia too, as we stick with them to leave Stadion FK Krasnodar unbeaten with a good-looking Double Chance – Draw or Away win at 8/11 with William Hill.
We feel we should be in for goals on both ends this time around and Olympiakos will have to find the net for such a quest, as we now also back a Yes on Both teams to score – which comes at 4/5 with Unibet and looks a solid approach to the fixture by itself.
