Aris FC will be wanting a better result here after a 1-4 Super League defeat last time out to AEK Athens.
In that game, Aris FC had 40% possession and 2 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. The only player to score for Aris FC was Bruno Gama (29'). For their opponents, AEK Athens got 16 shots at goal with 10 on target. Nélson Oliveira (24', 52'), André Simões (62') and Damian Szymański (85') scored for AEK Athens.
Matches with Aris FC have tended to be lively affairs lately with high scoring anticipated. Over their past 6 games alone, the sum of 21 goals have gone in for both teams combined (at an average of 3.5 goals per game) with 7 of those belonging to Theos tou polemou. We shall soon find out if that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.
Their previous form shows that Aris FC:
- have not beaten Olympiacos in their last 14 league games. What a terrible run without a win that has been.
- are without a home win in the past 2 matches in the league.
In their last game, Olympiacos drew 0-0 in the Super League tie with Panathinaikos.
In that game, Olympiacos managed 50% possession and 4 attempts at goal with 1 on target. At the other end, Panathinaikos had 5 shots on goal with 2 of them on target.
A succession of steadfast showings from the Olympiacos defence has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 3 from their previous 6 clashes combined. Over that same period of time, their forwards have scored 11.
Their prior results show that Olympiacos:
- have not been beaten by Aris FC when they've played them away from home in the last 6 matches in the league. A very good run of results for them.
- are unbeaten in their last 21 league matches away from home. It's hard to ask more than that.
Head to head
A study of their past head to head meetings stretching back to 30/03/2014 reveals that these fixtures have been a source of anguish for Aris FC. They have not been able to register any victories at all while Olympiacos have been too good for them, running out winners in 100 per cent of those matches played.
An aggregate of 20 goals were yielded between them in this period, with 5 for Theos tou polemou and 15 for Τhrylos. That is an average goals per game value of 3.33.
The previous league fixture between these sides was Super League match day 2 on 14/06/2020 which finished with the scoreline of Olympiacos 3-1 Aris FC.
That day, Olympiacos had 64% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. Goals were scored by Mady Camara (27', 28') and Giorgos Masouras (38').
At the other end, Aris FC had 7 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. Brown Ideye (64') was the scorer.
The match was refereed by Evangelos Manouhos.
Team News: Aris FC
Aris FC boss Michael Oenning has a full complement, with no fitness concerns at all before this clash with a fully injury-free squad to pick from.
Team News: Olympiacos
Olympiacos boss Pedro Martins has to choose a team with limited availability. Lazaros Christodoulopoulos (Knee Injury), El Arbi Hillel Soudani (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Leonardo Koutris (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be making appearances.
We’ve got the feeling that Olympiacos look likely to score at least once against Aris FC, who may well find it hard getting on the scoresheet.
We reckon that it will be a fairly comfortable 0-2 winning margin for Olympiacos after 90 minutes.
