Competition: Greek Super League

Market: Olympiacos win

Odds: 1/2 @ BetUS

Looking to skyrocket their way back into the European spots, Olympiacos will travel to the Kleanthis Vikelidis Stadium when they meet Airs on Wednesday evening.

Starting with the hosts, while Aris might have secured another top-half finish among Greece’s elite this season, Akis Mantzios’ side are in the midst of an extended rut. Last seen over the weekend suffering a second-half collapse on home soil as they suffered a 2-1 loss at the hands of AEK, the Thessaloniki-based outfit will be bracing themselves for another heavyweight challenge here. Showing a string of issues since opening April, the Kitrinomavroi have lost all of their previous four consecutive Super League appearances and they do have the feel of a squad limping their way over the finish line. With their recent struggles underlined by a 2-0 defeat against Panathinaikos on April 7th, Wednesday’s hosts will also be concerned by their extended issues on home soil. Losing back-to-back showdowns at the Kleanthis Vikelidis Stadium by an aggregate score of 4-1, Aris have also claimed just a single victory from their last five appearances in front of their own supporters.

As for the visitors, while Olympiacos might have suffered Europa Conference League heartbreak against Turkish giants Fenerbahce last week, Jose Mendilibar’s side have continued on an eye-catching domestic flurry. Making an immediate return to winning ways over the weekend as they secured a 2-1 victory at home against PAOK, the Thrylos have their sights firmly set on clinching another lucrative European ticket this season. Opening April with a stellar 3-0 romp against Aris, the Greek heavyweight have won all of their previous three Super League appearances by an aggregate score of 10-2. With their recent purple patch highlighted by a 5-1 victory against Lamia earlier in the month, Wednesday’s guests should be smelling another golden opportunity here. Appearing to be enjoying life under the former Sevilla boss, Olympiacos will also be excited by a rampant record against Aris. Including a 3-0 romp when the two sides last met back on April 2rd, they have won all of their previous three battles by an aggregate score of 9-2.
