Olympiakos faces Olympique Marseille at the Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki in Piraeus in a
match from Group C of the Champions League. We will give you a good preview of this
fixture in our soccer predictions for this week.
Olympiakos reached the Champions League group stage after eliminating Cyprus’ Omonia
Nicosia in the competition’s playoffs. The Greek side won the first game at home with 2-0
while a 0-0 draw in Nicosia was enough for them to reach the group stage. Of course for
Olympiakos this is not something new – they are regulars in the Champions League.
What is Olympiakos’ current form? Pedro Martins’ team won five of its last seven games,
being unbeaten as well. On Saturday Olympiakos hosted Atromitos in the Greek Super
League 1 and enjoyed a convincing 4-0 win. Youssef El-Arabi made an impressive
performance as he entered the pitch from the bench and scored a hattrick.
Olympique Marseille are 6th in the Ligue 1 with 12 points won from seven matches played.
During the weekend Andre Vilas-Boas’ team hosted Bordeaux at the Velodrome and
enjoyed a 3-1 win. Bordeaux’s Pablo scored himself an own goal while Thauvin and Amavi
scored for the hosts.
Olympique Marseille are having some problems regarding their current shape. They won
just one of their last four matches in all competition and it was precisely the one against
Bordeaux on Saturday. Now the question is – can they improve and show this improvement
in the Champions League as well?
These are the soccer predictions for this week for the match between Olympiakos and
Olympique Marseille at the Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki. For the home side this is a golden
chance to record a positive result in their first game in the group. But what about
Marseille? You can be sure they won’t give them the result without a fight.
