The first leg of this fixture at Portugal ended 1-0 in favour of Olympiacos, after 90 minutes of battle between them. The Greek side broke the deadlock in the 27th minute via Seba, but the two teams were unable to score another goal as the game ended 1-0. They will be the favourites to progress with the advantage of playing at home and having already won the first leg away with an away goal.

However, Arouca are not to be written off, though they lost at home, they still have a chance of getting through the next stage. Arouca desperately need a win higher than 1-0 to take them straight to the next stage, nevertheless, a 1-0 win will take them to extra time play.

Olympiacos vs Arouca: Head to Head Statistics

Both teams have never played against each other in the past except for the first leg of this fixture. Also this fixtures are the first time Arouca will be playing against Greek teams.

Olympiakos have played a total of 14 games against Portuguese teams, they have won 7, lost 5 and drawn 2. At home Olympiakos have won 6 games against Portuguese teams and lost once.

Olympiacos vs Arouca: Prediction

This will be a tough game as the two teams are in a poor state recently, thus there are no favourites. Olympiakos are winless in 5 of their last 6 games, they have lost 3, drawn 2 and won 1 which was the first leg of this fixture. Whereas Arouca have lost 2 of their last 5 games, drawn 2 and won 1.

Both teams will play to their full strength, which might make the game a rough one with too many fouls. I predict a hard fought win for the Greek side.
