We offer a forecast for the Champions League match, in which Olympiacos hosts Omonia on 23 September. Will the guests be able to resist? – the answer is in our material.
The 45-time champion of Greece last season was 18 points ahead of his closest pursuer. In 36 rounds, Olympiacos scored 28 victories and drew seven times, which brought another championship gold. The “ red-whites ” managed to hit the gates of the opponents 74 times, of which 20 were on the account of El-Arabi and nine on the conscience of Masuras.
The “ legend ” finished last season on a positive note, having won AEK in the final (1: 0). In the first game of the 2020/21 tournament, Pedro Martins’ wards beat Asteras at home (3: 0).
Leonardo Curtis , who has a cruciate ligament rupture, will not play today .
In Cyprus, the championship ended in March. At the end of the tournament, Omonia occupied the first line, ahead of Anorthosis only by additional indicators. In 23 rounds, the ” white-greens ” won 13 victories and ended seven matches in peace. Henning Berg’s charges showed the best result in the defensive line, conceding only 13 goals.
At the first stage of qualification, the islanders knocked out “Ararat-Armenia” (1: 0 a.v.) tournament, then Legia fell (2: 0 a.c.) and in the semifinals the guests beat Crvena Zvezda (2: 1 pen.), for which we made a forecast.
Olympiacos have won 8 of their last 10 matches
Omonia have lost only 1 of their last 10 away matches
Greek club average 2.2 goals at home
The last personal match ended with the victory of Olympiacos (3: 0)
” Omonia ” today is the hero of his country and reaching the final qualification – an undoubted success of the team. ” Olympiacos ” had a great past championship, depriving the title of champion PAOK.
Most likely, the option to hold the score for 90 minutes and go further only thanks to fortune will not work for the Cypriots with the Greek club. In our opinion, the hosts will play powerfully at home, and will probably try to get their way to the next stage already in the first game.
Our prediction is that Olympiacos will win with a handicap (-1.5) and we bet on this using the Winline bookmaker with a coefficient of 2.13
