Olympiacos boss Pedro Martins has to choose a team with limited availability. Lazaros Christodoulopoulos (Knee Injury), Nikola Cumic (Corona virus), El Arbi Hillel Soudani (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Leonardo Koutris (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be playing here.
We feel that in this game, OFI Crete have enough to put one past this Olympiacos side, but a single goal likely won’t be enough to give them the result that they want.
We’re going for a 1-2 win for Olympiacos when the referee blows the final whistle. Should be an interesting one.
