Barcelona vs Olympiacos Piraeus
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 18th October 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Camp Nou.
Barcelona’s perfect record came to an end on Saturday when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Atletico Madrid in the Primera Division derby at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.
Blaugrana will, however, have a very nice opportunity to return to the winning ways right away on Wednesday when they host the group’s underdogs Olympiacos Piraeus in the third round of the competition at Camp Nou.
Ernesto Valverde can still be thrilled with the start of the season he has had on Barcelona’s bench in both Primera Division (five points clear ahead of Real Madrid) and Champions League (demolished Juve on the opening day to practically secure the first place in the Group D).
The good news ahead of the rest of the season is sign of Luis Suarez finding his top shape as the Uruguayan striker notched important goals for this national team as well as an equalizer in the mentioned 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid.
The Greeks have been struggling a lot with their form at the start of the season as the negative run saw them claiming eight points in opening six league outings.
However, the team looks somewhat better in the final third under the new manager Takis Lemonis as they packed four goals in the weekend’s 3-4 victory over Panionios on the road.
Barcelona vs Olympiacos Piraeus: Head to head
Barcelona and Olympiacos Piraeus are going to take on each other for the first time this Wednesday at Camp Nou.
Barcelona vs Olympiacos Piraeus: Prediction
Olympiacos’ defensive line did not leave a strong impression so far in the season and we are quite afraid for their destiny at Camp Nou.
This will be a perfect occasion for Luis Suarez to further boost up his confidence and score loads against the struggling Olympiacos’ defensive line.
