Wolves Preview – Can Wolves take advantage?

For Wolves to feel bitterly disappointed with their 7th place finish at the end of the recent Premier League season just shows how far Wolves have come under manager, Nuno Espirito Santo, as they were edged out by Mourinho’s Tottenham on goal difference for 6th place.

This therefore places even greater importance upon this upcoming 2nd leg at Molineux against Olympiakos whom they held to a 1-1 draw in Greece in the 1st leg way back in March before the lockdown, but the west midlands outfit now have the chance to make home advantage (albeit without fans) count here.

However, Wolves’s run-in in the Premier League wasn’t overly impressive as the hosts managed to collect just two wins (over Everton and Crystal Palace), although results at home were pretty solid overall as they lost just one of their last eight at Molineux.

Wolves are also solid at the back as the hosts have kept eight clean sheets in their last 12 matches overall, which is another by-product of this Nuno Espirito Santo era.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Olympiakos Preview – Can Olympiakos find joy in west midlands?

Thursday’s visitors, Olympiakos, were given another bite of the European cherry after finishing in 3rd place in Group B in the Champions League behind the likes of Bayern Munich and Tottenham, and although they were held to a 1-1 draw in the 1st leg in Greece, they will still feel as though they’re very much still in this tie.

Olympiakos bring an impressive 12-match unbeaten run in all competitions into this 2nd leg decider which includes picking up 10 wins during this recent period, but results away from home in the Europa League have been a bit sketchy.

The visitors have lost three of their last five matches away from home in the Europa League with defeats at AC Milan, Real Betis and Dynamo Kiev and although they beat Arsenal 2-1, they needed extra-time in order to do so; goals (or lack of them) may be the best play here then as seven of Olympiakos’s last 12 matches overall have resulted in under 2.5 goals.
