Olympiakos vs Wolverhampton Betting Tips & Predictions
We don’t tend to expect Wolverhampton Wanderers to lose when they set foot on the pitch and there’s a strong argument for getting with Wolves on the Asian Handicap market when they head to Greece for this Europa League encounter.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s team are having another excellent season and thousands of supporters will enjoy a spring visit to warmer climes for a match against an Olympiakos side who dumped Arsenal out of the competition at the previous stage.
The Gunners actually claimed a 1-0 victory at the Karaiskakis Stadium which looked as though the job had been done, although their opponents stormed back at the Emirates and claimed a 2-2 aggregate win after extra-time.
Pedro Martins’ side originally started this season in the Champions League and they held Tottenham Hotspur to a 2-2 draw, while they also ran Bayern Munich close on home soil.
Their domestic form is very strong this term, with twelve wins and a draw from thirteen matches helping them to be seven points clear at the top of the Greek Super League although they will find it tougher to break down a Wanderers side who have only lost three times on the road in the Premier League this term.
The English side don’t have a huge squad although Nuno is managing to effectively rotate the players and they were able to crush Espanyol 4-0 at Molineux in the previous round before a fairly meaningless 3-2 defeat in Spain.
A recent 3-2 win at Tottenham illustrated what this Wolves team are all about. They twice recovered from going behind, with Diogo Jota having recently found some excellent form, while Matt Doherty is getting into some brilliant positions from an attacking wing-back position.
That’s not to mention the predatory Raul Jimenez, the powerful Adama Traore and the box of tricks that is Pedro Neto, with the nineteen-year-old starting to shine more in the old gold.
