Olympiakos Prediction – Can Olympiakos seal tie?

Having registered a valuable 1-0 win in last week’s 1st leg away at Basaksehir in Istanbul, Olympiakos now look to be in the driving seat here.

The hosts look well placed and firm favourites to progress through to the play-offs as they return to home turf for this deciding leg.

Olympiakos have actually played more matches in this season’s Champions League than their domestic Super League so far this season.

The Greek top flight season doesn’t start until 2 weeks time, but already the hosts have recorded a 2nd qualifying round win over Plzen.

A resounding 4-0 home win in the 2nd leg against Plzen saw the Greek side through after the 1st leg ended in a 0-0 draw in the Czech Republic.

The home side will now be looking to protect their 1-goal advantage on home soil on Tuesday night as they look to also extend an impressive unbeaten run.

With an impressive 19-match sequence without defeat under their belts, Olympiakos will be a hard nut to crack at their Stadio Georgios Karaiskáki in this return leg.

Basaksehir Prediction – Can Basaksehir overturn deficit?

The visitors also haven’t started their domestic season yet in the Turkish Super Lig and have played just one Champions League match.

This match obviously ended in a 1-0 defeat at home in last week’s 1st leg defeat to Tuesday night’s opponents, Olympiakos.

After last season’s Super Lig campaign ended, Basaksehir have played a few pre-season friendlies with disappointing results.

A 4-1 win away at Anif started their warm-up matches on a positive note but ordinary results soon followed with 2 defeats and 2 draws.

Losses to Ajax and Borussia Moenchengladbach along with draws with Fortuna Dusseldorf and AEK Athens isn’t great preparation for an important Champions League tie.

Basaksehir have managed just 1 win from their previous 5 Champions League ties which was a 2-0 home win over Club Brugge.

They’ve lost 2 of their last 3 Champions League ties with defeats to Sevilla and last week’s loss to Olympiakos, so this could be an uphill task on Tuesday night.


Key-Facts – Olympiakos v Basaksehir

  • Olympiakos are unbeaten in their last 19 matches in all competitions
  • Olympiakos have lost just 3 of their last 9 home ties in the Champions League
  • Basaksehir have managed just 1 win from their previous 5 Champions League ties


Betting Tips Verdict

Olympiakos are in the driving seat ahead of this 2nd leg and should ease over the line with a win here.
