Juventus vs Olympiakos – UEFA Champions League: The Italian side has been having good results on this competition…
In 3 years, they have played 2 finals, where they eventually lost to Barcelona and Real Madrid. The club isn’t far from winning a Champions League, but, at the same time, the opportunities might end, especially when there are teams investing a lot of millions to win this trophy.
Juventus has been doing well this season, as opposed to what happened in previous seasons, where they started off poorly. The team is showing stability despite having lost some players, like Bonucci or Dani Alves.
Juve got off to a bad start on the Champions League, losing 3-0 to Barcelona in Spain, so it is essential for them to win this match before having a double roundagainst Sporting, which might help define something in this group.
Olympiakos: The Greeks have returned to the Champions’ League group stage, after they were able to advance in the play-off this season.
They knocked out Rijeka and ensured their access to this stage of the competition.
Olympiakos, who has been winning the Greek league with a lot of ease, is less confident this season, and their results are proving that, with only 1 win in 5 matches, and with that win being on the Greek Cup.
In the Champions League, they got off to a bad start as well, losing to Sporting 2-3 on a match where they were already trailing 0-3 at half-time. They have reacted on the final 5 minutes, scoring 2 goals, but it was too late.
On the past weekend, Olympiakos was winning 0-2 away from home against AEK, but they ended up losing 3-2 which aggravated their crisis even more.
Juventus vs Olympiakos – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Juventus certainly want to react and impose their superiority on this match. The Italians are very experienced, they have more quality and after the 3-0 loss in Barcelona, they will want to win and score goals against this Olympiakos, who are on the worst stage of their season.
Juventus is solid defending, and after conceding 3 goals on the 1st round, I believe they will not want to concede, so it will be hard for the Greeks to get through the Italians’ good defensive line.
On the attacking third, with Dybala, Mandzukic and the rest, I expect a bossy Juventus, controlling this match and building up a good win.
This is the best time to face the Greeks and I expect a good win from Juve, by at least a 2-goal margin.
