The Clarets have been particularly poor at the back in last three outings which saw them ship the total of 10 goals in all competitions, each of which obviously ended in defeats.

One of these came seven days ago when Sean Dyche’s men fell 3-1 to Olympiacos Piraeus in the first leg of their Europa League play-offs tie. This means that they’ll have to work hard to bag an appearance in the group stage of the competition.

A hard work is just what they were forced into in order to make it to this phase as both Aberdeen and Istanbul Basaksehir have taken their ties with Burnley into extra-time in past two rounds.

Oly, on the other side, had no troubles storming past Swiss Luzern 7-1 on aggregate in their maiden Europa League fixtures in the previous round.

Burnley vs Olympiacos Piraeus: Head-to-head

The two sides will only meet each other or the second time in history on Thursday evening at Turf Moor.

The first leg saw Olympiacos dominating and deservedly picking up a 3-1 victory on the home patch, inspired by a Konstantinos Fortounis’ brace.

Chris Wood notched the only goal of the game for the English outfit.

Burnley vs Olympiacos Piraeus: Prediction

The season in the top flight of the Greek football only started at the weekend as Olympiacos pulled off a narrow 1-0 victory over Levadiakos on the opening day.

The new head coach Pedro Martins rested most of players who featured the Burnley tie there.

Knowing that the team bagged three or more goals in all of their three Europa League games so far, it’0s really hard to imagine the struggling defensive line of Burnley’s keeping things tight at the back here.

Goals at both ends thus look to be a safe bet at 1.83, while the value definitely goes with the visitors to score two or more goals on the evening at 2.75.
