Our thinking is that Olympiacos have it within them to see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
However, Panetolikos may well struggle scoring goals, although we do see them converting at least once.
Therefore, we are anticipating a 1-3 winning score for Olympiacos when the full-time whistle blows.
