Olympiacos Piraeus vs FK Crvena zvezda – Prediction (Champions League – 11.12.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

It’s a battle for a UEFA Europa League spot as bottom-placed Olympiakos take on Red Star Belgrade who sit two points ahead of them. The Greek champions must win, but having lost their last four UEFA Champions League (UCL) games, three by a two-goal margin, and seeing both teams score in four of their five UCL fixtures this term, they will take nothing for granted. Olympiakos have netted the opener in three of their five UCL matches, and have been trailing at half-time just once so far (HT: W2, D2, L1). It’s their second-half performances letting them down, with Olympiakos losing four of the five UCL second halves they’ve played this campaign, conceding an average of 2.0 second-half goals per fixture.

Red Star only need a draw to secure European football into next year, and whilst they’ve lost four of their five UCL group games ‘to nil’ and by at least a three-goal losing margin, the exception was a 3-1 win over Olympiakos in the reverse fixture which saw them turn around a half-time deficit. The Serbians travel here on a five-game unbeaten run on the road (W4, D1 – in all competitions), and have seen their last six competitive away victories come ‘to nil’. However they are winless in their last ten European away games (D4, L6 – 90 minutes only).

Players to watch: Yousseff El Arabi netted a brace last time out – his last five competitive goals for Olympiakos (including two UCL strikes) have come before half-time. Tomané’s last four competitive goals for Red Star have been netted in either the first or last 15 minutes of matches.

Stat attack: Olympiakos have scored in 15 straight competitive home games (W12, D2, L1). Nine of Olympiakos’ last ten competitive home victories came ‘to nil’. Red Star have conceded a UCL high 3.8 goals per group stage match this season.
