Team News: Olympiacos
Lazaros Christodoulopoulos (Knee Injury), Nikola Cumic (Corona virus), El Arbi Hillel Soudani (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Leonardo Koutris (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be able to feature for Olympiacos manager Pedro Martins.
Team News: PAOK
PAOK manager Abel Ferreira has some current player fitness concerns. Pontus Wernbloom (Achilles tendon problems) and José Crespo (Hamstring Injury) will not be playing here.
We’re thinking that Olympiacos will most probably get a couple of goals in this one when they line up against PAOK, who might well find it difficult to break down their defence.
We’re tipping a fairly comfortable 2-0 victory for Olympiacos by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
