Olympiakos vs Krasnodar Match Preview
Krasnodar travel to Greece for the first leg of their Champions League clash against Olympiakos in a great mood after making their way to the Play-offs over Porto (on away goals in a thriller 3-3 aggregate draw). They now hope to build on the success and keep up their winning streak seen through August.
Bulls have beaten Tambov (0-2) on Saturday to connect their third win in a row and we feel they’ll be very motivated to cause an upset at Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki. This is no easy task and leaving unbeaten would surely have them satisfied too, with a four-match unbeaten streak on their trips going back exactly a month.
Olympiakos have a winning streak of their own as they beat Viktoria Plzen (4-0 on aggregate) and Istanbul Basaksehir (3-0 on aggregate) in two Champions League Qualifiers outings, as Pedro Martins’ men put a somewhat shaky pre-season campaign behind them.
Thrylos have found their defensive consistency and they’ve been very tough to score against, which will make the task for the visitors even tougher. They’ve kept clean sheets in all of their last five outings and the defensive line led by Ruben Semedo and Yassine Meriah really felt rock-solid along the way.
Still, we feel outgunning Krasnodar will be a tough task and we’ll now stick our necks out for the visitors to snatch an advantage here, as we go for a Double Chance – Draw or Krasnodar to win at 10/13 with Unibet as the best approach to the fixture.
We feel we’re in for a very narrow occasion, though, and slim margins could make all the difference. We’ll thus also stick with few goals and go for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 6/10 with William Hill, which has seen many big hitters lumping already.
