Olympiakos vs Tottenham Predictions
Olympiakos have managed to reach the Champions League or Europa League group stages in every season since 2011/2012, but it’s worth noting that they haven’t progressed beyond this stage in the UCL since the 2013/2014 campaign when they were comfortably beaten by Manchester United in the Round of 16. It’ll be tough for them to go beyond that stage this year but if they are to do so, they’ll need a win here at 17/5 with William Hill.
It’s been a blistering start to the current campaign for Erythrolefki too as they’ve picked up eight consecutive wins in the Champions League qualifying stages and Super League so far, with those three league victories leaving them top of the table at this early stage. Pedro Martins men will thus come into this game in high spirits and looking to upset the odds against Premier League opposition.
That Premier League opposition comes in the shape of Tottenham Hotspur and the Lilywhites went on a fine run to the final of this competition last year. With issues surrounding the contracts of key players and the happiness of manager Mauricio Pochettino despite some big name signings in the summer, a repeat of that fine run seems unlikely whilst domestic success ahead of Liverpool and Manchester City seems equally implausible this term.
It’s been a stuttering start to the league campaign for Spurs too as they were unable to follow up an opening day win over Aston Villa in their next three games, playing out away draws against Arsenal and Manchester City and going down in a shock home defeat to Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United. Pochettino’s men did return to winning ways over the weekend by thumping Crystal Palace 4-0, can they pick up another important win here at 10/11 with Betfair.
We’re backing the visitors to get that win here too. Spurs saved some of their better performances for this competition last season and after the confidence-boosting victory over the Eagles on Saturday, they can head to the Greek capital in high spirits here. Olympiakos haven’t failed to score in any of their last eight games though and won by a five goal margin over the weekend against Volos NFC so we’re backing the away win and BTTS to score bet at 3/1 with Bet365.
Harry Kane scored five times in Tottenham’s run to the Champions League final last season and he’s started the new campaign in fine form for club and country. With three goals in his first five Premier League game, Kane also scored four times in England’s Euro 2020 qualifying wins over Bulgaria and Kosovo last week and we expect him to get on the scoresheet again in this group stage clash at odds of 21/20 with Unibet.
