Olympiakos vs Tottenham Betting Tips & Predictions
Olympiakos started their Champions League journey in late July when overcoming Viktoria Plzen in the second qualifying round of the competition, with İstanbul Başakşehir and Krasnodar the other teams beaten to ensure they take their place in the group stage.
The Greek side finished second in their domestic Super League last season and will be the only representative from their country in the competition, with Pedro Martins looking to steer the underdogs to the knockout round as they managed during the 2013-14 season before being beaten by Manchester United.
They have another English opponent awaiting them on Wednesday 18 September, with Tottenham heading south for their first Champions League engagement and the London club have been under something of a dark cloud since the beginning of the campaign.
This is chiefly down to manager Mauricio Pochettino being disgruntled, with the Argentine potentially preparing an exit strategy from White Hart Lane, although it should be noted that he steered the team to the Champions League final last season.
Indeed, this Spurs squad has plenty of European knowhow after a brilliant adventure on the continent last term and they’re inching towards being even money to win this match in Athens.
Dele Alli has returned from injury, Son Heung-Min is back from suspension and Pochettino therefore has the attacking weaponry to ensure that his team outscore their opponents, even if the defence hasn’t kept a clean sheet in the four Premier League games to date.
With Bayern Munich and Red Star Belgrade also in the group, qualification might come down to making sure of a maximum haul against Olympiakos and we’re confident that Tottenham have the quality to bank a victory.
There have already been 2-2 draws away to Manchester City and Arsenal, with Tanguy Ndombele proving to be a valuable acquisition in the heart of midfield and we’re expecting the visitors to come out on top over the ninety minutes.
