Champions League: Barcelona hosts Olympiakos this Wednesday on a Champions League match…
We are talking about two teams who occupy the two opposing edges of this group D.
Barcelona is naturally leading the group with 6 points gained, thanks to 2 wins in 2 matches.
The Catalans are beginning to show that they will cruise through this group stage and not even Juventus seems to be able to contend with them.
Barcelona has beaten 3-0 on the 1st round at home and then defeated Sporting in Portugal.
On La Liga, the team is leading with a considerable advantage.
Even with the draw against Atlético de Madrid on the last round, Barça is still leading with 22 points, 4 points ahead of Valencia who occupies a surprising 2nd place.
Regarding their lineup, there aren’t any big news, except for the known absences of Rafinha, Turan and Dembelé.

Olympiakos sits in last place of this group. The Greek team’s campaign is disappointing so far. The losses against Juventus and Barcelona are normal.
But Olympiakos was defeated by Sporting playing at home, which illustrates the tough moment the team is going through.
Besides the upset against Sporting, the Greeks ended up being beaten by Juventus as well, away from home, although they did put up a good fight.
Barcelona vs Olympiakos – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The favouritism of the Catalans is more than clear here.
Although they have won their last match, Olympiako’s form is not good, not even on the Greek Superleague.
The struggle is finding value on the Spanish side.
But sincerely, I don’t think that this current Olympiakos side will be able to threaten Barcelona in any aspect.
