Preview: Top of Group B, and with a goal difference of +8 already, are Bayern Munich, who could take another assured stride towards early progression with victory in Greece against Olympiacos. However, the Greek champions are still to taste defeat at home in 2019/20. So, will that excellent record still be intact come the end of Tuesday night?

Olympiacos Preview – Can Greek champs maintain unbeaten home record?

The theme thus far has been comebacks. One in their favour, the other not. So this could be another dramatic encounter on that basis, as the most successful club in Greece – though no league title in either of the past two seasons does diminish some of the hype from that particular statement – go hunting what would be a huge upset. It would also be a first ever win against Bayern Munich at the third attempt.

One thing is for sure, the atmosphere inside their Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus will be absolutely rocking. The venue has formed a formidable backdrop already this season, with Tottenham Hotspur the only side to have avoided defeat there when the English Premier League outfit squandered a two goal lead to draw 2-2. The likes of Istanbul Basaksehir (2-0), Krasnodar (4-0) and Viktoria Plzen (4-0) were all otherwise dispatched there in the earlier qualifying rounds as the Greek side boast a record of W7 D1 at home in 2019/20.

Olympiacos, though, would find themselves on the receiving end of a spirited comeback next time out in this competition, losing 3-1 in Serbia to Red Star Belgrade despite leading 1-0 at the interval. A result which left them bottom of the group. Their situation domestically has a more healthy outlook, though, as they sit atop the Greek Super League following an almost flawless start (W6 D1), beating OFI Crete 2-1 at home a matter of days ago.


Robert Lewandowski & Bayern Win (Score/Win)



Bayern Munich Preview – Another Lewandowski finishing masterclass?

Regardless of what happens between now and the end of the season, you get the impression that this campaign will forever be remembered for scoring SEVEN times away to Tottenham Hotspur in an astonishing 7-2 victory. In addition to their routine 3-0 win over Red Star Belgrade, which was earned in Germany, means they have scored a combined ten goals in just two group games, at an average of five per game. Unsustainable numbers certainly, but remarkable nonetheless.

Former Arsenal winger, Serge Gnabry, grabbed the headlines on that crazy night in London by scoring four times. The contribution of Robert Lewandowski was arguably as important, if not more so, as the Polish striker continues his imperious start to the season. The 31-year-old scored in both group games, bringing his tally to three altogether. Meanwhile, his strike in Saturday’s 2-2 draw away to Augsburg maintained his personal streak for scoring in every competitive game in 2019/20 (8 in Bundesliga, 2 in Europe).

Those dropped points at the weekend will have been bitterly disappointing for coach Niko Kovac, whose team are still to lose on their travels in six games in all competitions (W4 D2) but have been exposed all too often defensively. A 3-0 scoreline at Schalke remains their only shut out on the road this season, conceding precisely two goals in each of their previous three said fixtures. If they are to prevail in Greece, their prolific attack may need to outscore the opposition once more.


Olympiacos V Bayern Munich Key Facts:

  • Olympiacos remain unbeaten at home so far this season (W7 D1), keeping a clean sheet on six occasions.
  • Bayern Munich have not lost an away fixture so far this season (W4 D2), though did keep only one clean sheet in that sequence.
  • This will be the third meeting in the Champions League between these two clubs: Bayern Munich have won the previous two by 3-0 and 4-0 scorelines.


Betting Summary

Even with a formidable home record to fall back on, this looks daunting for Olympiacos. To win seven of eight home matches this season is very impressive but the fact Tottenham broke that sequence when drawing 2-2, in a contest the English side probably ought to have won, suggests a long night awaits versus an opponent who are a significant upgrade on that. No team, however, has prevented them from scoring on their patch so far.

Ruthess away to Tottenham; professional at home to Red Star Belgrade. Bayern Munich have absolutely cruised through their first couple group games, netting the ten goals in the process to top the section. Victory here would put them on the cusp on qualification with three games to spare – and with striker Robert Lewandowski in ruthless form, The Bavarians will take some stopping.

The vastly superior side, which are Bayern Munich, should register a third straight win in this group. However, the Germans have demonstrated enough defensive vulnerabilities, particularly when asked to travel, to suggest Olympiacos could land a blow themselves.
