The tip for Wednesday night in the Champions Leagfue goes on the Olympiakos – Red Star dispute, which will be played at 10:00 pm, at the Giorgios Karaiskakis Arena, in Piraeus and will be led to the center by the Italian referee Daniele Orsato.
Olympiakos: Team shape, news and statistics
◼️The Greeks have only one point to win after the first 5 stages in this group of Ch.L, and yet they are still likely to continue in the spring of the Europa League.
◼️This is because the opponents in this game only have 3 points, so this is a match on which.
◼️Olympiakos impressed in the last game of the group, playing sensational almost an entire first half at Tottenham’s new stadium, where they led 2-0, but ultimately lost 4-2.
◼️However, the impression they left in the London match was one of the strong team, the team capable of beating, to a point, with anyone.
◼️Coach Pedro Martins will not be able to rely on Christodoulopoulos, Cisse, Fortounis and Koutris in this meeting, but it is very possible that Valbuena may not be fully recovered.
◼️The red-whites from Piraeus play very well on their own ground, with a sensational audience in the back, so they have every reason to hope for a victory and, implicitly, for qualifying in the sixteenth Europa League.
Red Star Belgrade: Team shape, news and statistics
◼️The Rosie Belgrade star can only really measure up in the European matches, because regarding the internal competition Vladan Milojevici’s players have practically no opponent this season.
◼️This is unlike Oly, who has a strong adversity in the domestic championship, where he struggles for the title with PAOK.
◼️Crvena Zvezda, as she is known in the neighboring country Red Star, won only one match in her group, precisely the one in the tour with Olympiakos, and the rest of the games, lost, were at the big difference, which is also reflected in the average of goals that Serbs picked it up this season in the Champions League, 3.8 per game!
◼️Belgrade have not won in the last 10 trips to the European Cups, where they registered 4 draws and 6 defeats.
◼️In Athens, where many supporters will be accompanied – the two galleries being twinned – the guests will not be able to count Jovicic, injured, but he is missing for some time.

Football Prediction of the Day Olympiakos vs Red Star Belgrade
On its own ground, Oly is a rollercoaster to whom it is almost impossible to cope. In the current season, only Bayern have won the Karaiskakis, but neither the German band without emotions. In fact, in 9 of the last 10 games played at home the Greeks managed to win, talking here of matches in all competitions. With an extremely fast and inventive attack, Olympiakos is clearly the favorite. Red Star lost the away matches, 0-3 with Spurs and 0-5 with Bayern, which shows weaknesses in approaching the matches on the foreign field. Belgradeians probably would not have imposed themselves on their own ground with the Greek team if at the time they were leading they would not have been left with one player in the minus, eliminated.
Bet Tips: Olympiakos
The stakes of the match, as expected from the draw, is the access to the elimination stages of the Europa League, because neither Olympiakos nor Red Star Belgrade had any hopes for more than that. Olympiakos needs success to take 3rd place and even though it has only one point so far, the Greek team has not moved badly on home soil in front of heavyweight Bayern and Tottenham, drew a draw, 2-2, with Tottenham coming back from 0-2, and Bayern won by 3-2. So in both games Olympiakos scored 2 goals. On the other hand, Red Star Belgrade played excellently on the move, was clearly defeated in both matches, 0-3 with Bayern and 0-5 with Tottenham. Olympiakos may not be a river score, but the hell out of Greece will put its mark on the Serbian team and I do not think that the Red Star can get anything out of this match. That is why, given the good developments of the hosts in the confrontations of their own fief with the group’s borders, but also the poor game made by the Red Star outside, I bet on a clear success of the Olympiakos, which is why I bet Olympiakos Asian handicap -1 for # odds2, in case of a victory at the limit, the stake will be refunded.
