Olympiakos vs Juventus – Champions League: Olympiakos from Greece hosts the almighty Juventus this Tuesday on a Champions League match…
The Greeks are making a campaign to forget. Not that anyone expected them to be able to contend with the strength of Barcelona and Juventus. But they were expected to at least be able to fight for the Europa League spot with Sporting.
But that wasn’t what happened. Olympiakos is already out of all the continental competitions, having only 1 point conquered and sitting in last place of this group.
The team has 1 draw, against Barcelona, at home, and 4 other losses, having a record of 4 goals scored and 11 goals conceded. On the Greek Superleague, Olympiakos is in 2nd place, 1 point behind AEK.

Juventus comes to Athens needing to win in order not to be at risk of being eliminated early and embarrassingly.
Along with Barcelona, everyone expected them to have an easy time in this group, but Sporting put up a good fight against everyone and they also come into this final round with chances to advance to the knockout stage.
Juventus is in 2nd place with 8 points, 3 behind Barça and 1 above Sporting. Only the win ensures Juventus their spot in the round of 16 without worrying about other results.
On the Serie A, the team is coming off a great win over Napoli away from home, but they are only in 3rd place.
Olympiakos vs Juventus – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Olympiakos isn’t as bad as these odds suggest. Against Barcelona they closed themselves and ensured the draw. I believe we’ll see an identical posture here.
Furthermore, Juventus aren’t that superior to make me believe they will trash the Greeks here. So, the Handicaps favouring the hosts have value in my opinion.
