Olympiacos – Viktoria Plzen, Champions League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR OLYMPIACOS - PLZEN
Olympiacos were brilliant in the first game as they managed to keep a clean sheet, which was the main goal of the Greeks. Naturally, we can’t fail to recognize that Victoria was the much better team and could win even with 2 goals difference, but didn’t manage to take advantage of the situations that they created. The fact that the Czechs dominated was not accidental, as Olympiacos had important missing defenders and some changes in defense, so they were cautious.
For Victoria Plzen, the situation now seems more complicated. It is clear to them that they can’t do the same game, or at least it will not be so easy to do, but they can rely on a slightly more open game from Olympiacos, which means that at one point Viktoria can to take advantage of the chances it will create.
Expert view : After Viktoria failed to defeat Olympiacos in the previous game under all these conditions that accompanied the game, we think it will be much harder for them to do so in Greece. Olympiacos has a great record at home and rarely anyone overcomes them. We are betting on Olympiacos to win either half at 1.55, because we generally expect a victory for the Greeks in the match, but with this bet there are a lot of other options that can be won. For example, a few days ago Real M lost to Atletico M by 3-7, but won the second half.
Olympiacos have only 2 losses in their last 35 home games
Victoria have only 2 wins in their last 10 away games at UCL
