This may be Red Star Belgrade’s first ever meeting with Olympiakos, but they have won all five previous European home games versus Greek opposition, and have turned this venue into a fortress in recent years, losing just two of their last 20 continental home fixtures. Despite that, they enter this game as slight underdogs, an unfamiliar status for the 29-time national champions that have seen five of their last six competitive home victories arrive by at least a two-goal margin, while they’ve only conceded over 1.5 goals in just one of their last 11 CL home games.
Olympiakos started their CL group stage campaign with a 2-2 comeback draw versus Tottenham, in a game that saw goals in both halves – an occurrence in their previous three CL matches. Unbeaten in their last 20 competitive fixtures, the 44-time Greek champions know how to grind out a win, with five of their previous six away victories in this competition being decided by a one-goal margin. Yet whilst their games tend to be tight, Olympiakos have played out just one goalless draw in their last 26 CL road trips, and impressively, have notched up seven clean sheets across their last ten competitive away games.
