Juventus vs Olympiacos
UEFA Champions League 2017/18 – Group Stage
Date: Wednesday, 27th September 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin).
Juventus will be keen to bounce back to winning ways after the 3-0 humbling at Camp Nou on matchday 1. And they have a perfect chance to achieve this as Olympiacos are coming on some poor form.
The Greek side were thoroughly outplayed by Sporting CP in the 2-3 opening day defeat. Only a late surge helped them achieve an acceptable margin.
The form guide along with the head-to-head stats clearly suggest that the Serie A giants are clear candidates for a win here.
The Old Lady are on a stunning form at home with wins in all four matches this season with clean sheets. They have scored an incredible 11 goals in the process.
Meanwhile, Olympiacos are win-less in their last two away games, lost 1 and drew 1 to mediocre domestic rivals. Also, they had managed only 1 win from their 5 matches in all competitions across all venue.
Juventus vs Olympiacos: Head-to-head
There has been 6 previous meetings between the sides and Juventus are clearly ahead with 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. The Old Lady won all the three home matches in the series scoring 12 goals against 3 conceded.
Juve’s overall record against Greek sides at home is a formidable one with 9 wins and 1 draw coming from 11, losing just once.
Meanwhile, Olympiacos have a poor record in Italian soil after losing 7 of their previous 11 visits; won 3 and drew 1.
Juventus vs Olympiacos: Prediction
It is almost impossible for a team like Olympiacos to come to Turin and get away with a point. Also consider the Greek’s away form is poor, we consider half-time full-time wins for Juventus as a potential banker. We must also expect the Italians to win this by a large margin.
