Olympiacos to be frustrated in first leg

Olympiacos won the Greek Super League by 26 points last season, an impressive feat and they will be hoping to carry that form into the new season as they welcome Azerbaijani side, Neftci to Greece. Olympiacos have completed their pre-season campaign with just one loss (3-0 against Salzburg) but have won five of their seven as they look to build momentum ahead of this game.

Neftci Baku beat Dinamo Tblisi 4-2 over two legs to reach this stage but they know that a victory here against Olympiacos is less assured. Like their opponents this week, they won their domestic league but by less of a margin with just two points separating them and Qarabag. Their end of season form was a major contributor to this win and they will be hoping that they will be able to keep a similar record heading into the new season.

Olympiacos are red hot favourites to win this match and there is no value in backing them outright. Neftci appear to be slightly underrated in the market and we think the handicap, which is currently set at -2, is a little high. For that reason, and knowing that first legs are sometimes tight affairs, we’re backing Neftci on the three way handicap market at +2.

Olympiacos are the stronger of these two teams and we are expecting them to pick up the win but they showed their weaknesses in last season’s European campaign whilst Neftci impressed on their own continental journey. We think this will be a tighter affair than many imagine and we’re forecasting a slim 2-1 win for the Greek side.
