Olympiacos vs Tottenham
Date: Wednesday, 18 September 2019
Kick-off at 17:55 UK / 18:55 CET
Venue: Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium (Piraeus).
Olympiacos have got off to an indomitable start in the league and are currently the only team in the ladder that are yet to concede a goal. The hosts registered an emphatic 5-0 win in their most recent clash at this venue, which has taken their overall goals tally to seven from just three games.
The Greek outfit also came out on top in their last European clash which was against Krasnodar by a very impressive 6-1 aggregate scoreline.
Having gone within touching distance of the silverware in the previous edition, it goes without saying that their foes for the week are no strangers in this competition. Mauricio Pochettino’s men have got off to a solid start back in the Premier League as well and have already picked a point off of Manchester City and Arsenal, both of whom finished in the top five last time around, that too on the road.
Considering that Tottenham are showing no signs of slowing down whatsoever, Olympiacos will have to brace themselves as they are certainly in for a very tough ninety minutes.

Olympiacos vs Tottenham Prediction
The home team are on a stellar streak of their own in the Greek Super League and have been exerting their superiority across Europe as well. Pedro Martins’ men have been tasting nothing but success in their last eleven games, five of which were qualifiers in the Champions League.
Additionally, the home team have kept a clean sheet in five of their last six games and have found the back of the net fifteen times in the process.
However, in all honesty, it needs saying that their counterparts are no easy side to brush past and are a far more superior team as opposed to the opponents that they have been taking on so far. Furthermore, the away side have not lost in any of their last two outings and have scored four goals in those clashes alone.
Taking into account that Pochettino’s men will also be coming into the matchup this week on the back of a thumping 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace at home, Olympiacos have little or no chance is mustering up an upset for the visitors.
Nevertheless, do not forget that six of the last seven goals for the hosts have come in the comforts of their home. Given that Spurs have not been able to keep a clean sheet in their previous two trips on the road either, neither side are likely to complete the ninety minutes with a clean sheet intact.
