Given their Champions League form we expect Barca to win, even in hostile conditions. They are priced at 1.35 with Unibet. Below you can read the reasons for our Olympiacos vs Barcelona predictions.
We expect Barcelona to Win 2-0 at 6.50 with bet365
Looking at recent form, it’s hard to see any hope for the Greek side. They are down in fourth in the Greek Super League and are bottom of their Champions League group with 3 losses out of 3.
Barca are on the other hand are in some of their best form in recent years, having won 13 of their last 14 matches in all competitions. They are looking as motivated and effective as ever.
It’s always difficult to play in Greece given the hostile atmosphere, but a team like Barca shouldn’t be too phased by this given their pedigree in European competition.
We think they will repeat their scoreline from the weekend and win 2-0 at the Karaiskakis Stadium, which you can back at 6.50 with bet365.
Despite their form not all fans are 100% satisfied with manager Ernesto Valverde’s work this season, given that he seems to be prioritising results rather than the style of play they have come to expect.
This is a results business though, and may be the best way to dethrone Spanish and European champions Real Madrid for the time being. Besides, with Messi their football is always worth watching.
We’re backing Luis Suarez to open the scoring on Tuesday though. The Uruguayan always comes up with the goods in Europe, and is priced at 3.65 with Unibet to score first.
Barcelona travel to face Olympiacos at the Karaiskakis Stadium on Tuesday night. Having won all of their games so far, you would favour them to win against Olympiacos who have lost 3 out of 3.
Ernesto Valverde’s won yet again at the weekend, beating Athletic Bilbao to make it 9 wins from 10 in La Liga. They may not be as free-flowing as in previous years, but you can’t argue with their results.
Barcelona Form: WWWWDW
Usually so dominant domestically, this season Olympiacos are really struggling. They are currently fourth in the Greek Super League, losing to bitter rivals Panathinaikos at the weekend.
Olympiacos Form: LWWLWL
The match at the Camp Nou two weeks ago was surprisingly their first ever meeting. Barca were 3-1 winners despite playing much of the match with 10 men after Gerard Pique’s red card. Olympiacos’ last trip to Spain ended in a 4-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid.
Ousmane Dembele and Rafinha are on the long term injury list for the Blaugrana. Andres Iniesta missed the weekend’s win in Bilbao with a knock but could return. Arda Turan, Thomas Vermaelen and Aleix Vidal are all out.
Away Win: Barcelona to Win at 1.23 with Unibet
Barcelona to Win 3-0 at 6.50 with bet365
