Olympiacos will be playing on Wednesday as we near this forthcoming UCL Qualifiers clash against Neftçi.
Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Neftçi v Olympiacos are shown on this page (plus the best game odds).
Neftçi will be looking for an improved result here following the 1-0 UCL Qualifiers loss in their previous game against Olympiacos.
Their most recent results shine a light on the fact that things are going according to plan in the Neftçi defence. Neftçilər have been miserly, with the total number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their previous six outings standing at 3.
For 5 of the past six games featuring Olympiacos, a comparatively low number of goals have been hit between them and their opposition. The overall average goals scored per game during that spell comes to a meagre 1.83, with the number of goals averaged by Τhrylos standing at 1.5. Such a trend might not be continued into this next game, of course.
Team News: Neftçi
There’s just the lone fitness concern for the Neftçi manager Samir Abbasov to be concerned with from a near full-strength set of players. Namiq Alasgarov (Nose Injury) will miss out.
Team News: Olympiacos
Olympiacos boss Pedro Martins has multiple availability issues to deal with. Aguibou Camara (Unknown Injury), Athanasios Androutsos (Unknown Injury), Ögmundur Kristinsson (Unknown Injury), Yann M'Vila (Muscle Injury), Oleg Reabciuk (Unknown Injury), Sokratis Papastathopoulos (Quarantine), Tiquinho Soares (Arm Injury) and Konstantinos Fortounis (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. The suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Mady Camara and Tiquinho Soares.
Our thinking is that Neftçi could find themselves up against it to break down this Olympiacos lineup who will likely be able to grind out a win.
We’re going for a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 winning margin for Olympiacos at the conclusion of the game.
Little in this one.
