Olympiacos Piraeus – Marseille : Preview & Prediction
Olympique de Marseille is finally back in the Champions League! After seven years of absence at the highest European level, the Marseille club enters its Champions League this Wednesday evening, on the lawn of Olympiakos. A match that will obviously be very well attended in France by OM supporters, but also by sports betting enthusiasts, curious to see what André Villas-Boas’ men are capable of doing in the most beautiful of European competitions. . It must be said that since the start of the 2020-2021 financial year, the Marseillais have not really accustomed us to regularity.
Able to take the water against Lille and Metz at home (1-1 each time), the residents of the Vélodrome are also able to do good things, as shown by their success on the lawn of PSG (0-1) and against the Girondins de Bordeaux last weekend (3-1). With men in regaining form like Florian Thauvin or Jordan Amavi, Olympique de Marseille is capable of the best, and could show it on the lawn of Stade Georgios Karaiskaki.
Solid second in the Greek championship, with a last success against Atromitos in particular (4-0), the men of Piraeus will still be closely watched by the Marseille block. Between a Youssef El-Arabi on fire (6 goals in 5 games), a Mathieu Valbuena always efficient and a few vengeful men (M’Vila, Semedo, José Sa …), the Greek club has many assets to worry the OM, in addition to the experience he has in competition. If Olympique de Marseille can afford to take a point in Greece, it will certainly not be easy. Goals could be expected.
Marseille have lost only once this season, in seven games.
OM have lost only one match in their last nine official outings.
In recent weeks, OM have hooked Lyon (1-1) then beat Bordeaux (3-1).
Olympiakos have only won one of their last three games.
In this C1 play-offs, the Greeks had notably drawn against Omonia Nicosia (0-0).
The “+1.5 goals” have passed in 4 of Olympiakos’ last 5 games.
OM have also had at least two goals in their last 5 meetings.
This poster promises to be interesting for fans of French football, and the Olympians could well delight their supporters. Winners of Bordeaux without forcing last Saturday, Florian Thauvin and others have the means to take a draw, in a match that we imagine quite prolific.
