Olympiacos will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 1-5 Super League triumph against AEK Athens.
In that game, Olympiacos managed 59% possession and 6 shots at goal with 5 on target. For Olympiacos, goals were scored by Mady Camara (17'), Giorgos Masouras (23', 44'), Youssef El-Arabi (35') and Kostas Fortounis (74'). At the other end, AEK Athens got 6 attempts on goal with 3 on target. Karim Ansarifard (88') was the scorer for AEK Athens.
Olympiacos haven’t had any problems with scoring, hitting the target in each and every one of their last 6 games.
They’ve hit an aggregate of 14 during that time while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 5. We will have to see if that trend will end up being continued on here.
Going into this contest, Olympiacos are unbeaten in their last 15 home league matches. What a fortress they have created.
Panathinaikos will go into the game following on from a 3-0 Super League win against PAOK in their previous fixture.
In that game, Panathinaikos had 50% possession and 3 shots on goal with 3 on target. For Panathinaikos, the goalscorers were Federico Macheda (38'), Lucas Villafáñez (79') and Aitor Cantalapiedra (85'). PAOK got 9 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target.
The numbers tell their own story, and Panathinaikos have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 6 goals overall. Defensively, To Trifylli could really do with shoring things up.
Their prior results show that Panathinaikos:
- have not won against Olympiacos in games played away from home for the previous 8 league matches. A very poor set of away results, indeed.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 3 matches in the league.

Team News: Olympiacos
Olympiacos manager Pedro Martins has no fitness worries at all ahead of this match owing to a fully healthy squad to pick from.
Team News: Panathinaikos
Owing to an otherwise healthy squad, there’s just the one fitness issue for the Panathinaikos gaffer László Bölöni to be concerned about. Dimitrios Kourbelis (Tear in the abductor muscle) won’t be playing here.
Olympiacos will likely fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they meet Panathinaikos, who won’t find it easy scoring.
We can therefore see a pretty comfortable 2-0 winning margin for Olympiacos at the conclusion of the game.
