Olympiakos hosts Tottenham Hotspur
We are heading to the beautiful Greek city of Piraeus where Olympiakos hosts Tottenham Hotspur in a game from Group B of the Champions League. We are going to take a look at this fixture at the Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki in our Champions League predictions.
Olympiakos successfully gone through qualifications and playoffs in order to reach the group stage. In the playoffs they had a tough task against the strong Russian side Krasnodar, but they really dominated these two matches, scoring six goals in them.
Olympiakos crushed the Russian side’s ambitions in the first game between them in Piraeus, which they won with 4-0. In the second leg the Greek team achieved another win, winning with 2-1. Most of us expected a little bit more competitive rivalry between these two teams, but the Greeks really dominated.
In the Greek Super League Olympiakos started the season in the best way possible, enjoying three wins from the first three rounds. In their last game they faced Volos at home and achieved a very convincing 5-0 win.
Tottenham Hotspur start the new Champions League season with the confidence of a team which reached the competition’s final in May. Spurs had the chance to win the trophy for a first time in their history, but they lost the final against Liverpool in Madrid.
During the summer Tottenham kept their best players and even added to the squad a very classy midfielder like Tanguy NDombele. Now Mauricio Pochettino’s boys will try to do as good as they did last season.
In the English Premier League Spurs are currently third in the standings with two wins, two draws and one loss so far. In their last game the Londoners crushed Crystal Palace at home with 4-0.
That’s our Champions League predictions for the game between Olympiakos and Tottenham Hotspur at the Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki on Wednesday. We wish you good luck.
