View all of the Volos v OFI Crete predictions, poll and stats below - as well as up-to-date odds.
Volos head into this fixture coming off the back of a 1-1 Super League drawn game versus Larissa.
In that match, Volos had 52% possession and 8 shots on goal with 5 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Volos was Anastasios Douvikas (83'). For their opponents, Larissa had 9 attempts at goal with 4 on target. Dimitris Pinakas (51') scored for Larissa.
It has been a rare occasion in recent times that Volos have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Volos have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 5 goals in the process.
Going into this encounter, Volos are undefeated in their previous 3 home league matches.
Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Olympiacos in Super League action, OFI Crete and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that game, OFI Crete managed 45% possession and 4 shots on goal with 1 of them on target. On the other side, Olympiacos had 9 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Ahmed Hassan (53') and Giorgos Masouras (80') scored for Olympiacos.
Looking at their form, and OFI Crete have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, conceding 12 goals in all. At the back, Omilos have clearly had some problems. Putting that to one side, we will just have to wait and see if the trend might persist in this upcoming match.
Heading into this fixture, OFI Crete are without a win away from home in their last 3 league games.

Team News: Volos
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the lone fitness concern for the Volos boss Ángel López to contend with thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. Erik Jendrisek (Cervical spine injury) misses out.
Team News: OFI Crete
OFI Crete boss Georgios Simos has not got a full squad to pick from. Kosmas Tsilianidis (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Ricardo Vaz (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Adil Nabi (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be making appearances.
OFI Crete and Volos could both end up scoring in a what should be a good tussle with little between the two teams.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. We therefore think that it’s going to be a tight encounter with a 1-1 score draw at the end of the 90.
