FK Krasnodar will win

FK Krasnodar – Olympiakos Match Prediction | 27-08-2019 15:00

Despite losing the initial leg by a narrow 1-0 scoreline, the visitors turned things around in the return clash to keep the scores level at 3-3, following which they progressed on the away goals rule. FC Krasnodar made headlines in the last round when they came back from behind to dump the two-time Champions League winners FC Porto out of the tournament.

In contrast, the Greeks made light work of both forging scoring opportunities and putting the ball in the back of the net. They bossed the game from start to finish, were clinical and did a good job of restricting their opponents. Essentially, the hard work is done. Olympiacos now must ensure that they remain disciplined in Russia and a place in the Champions League group stages is theirs.

Krasnodar FK vs Olympiakos Piraeus Prediction, Betting Tips 28/08/2019

As touched on above, the visitors have done the hard work and thus their aim in Russia will almost certainly be to keep things nice and tight. In the betting, given the current aggregate score-line, Under 2.5 Goals makes lots of appeal at the current prices. Theyre unlikely to adopt a cavalier approach, which could potentially allow the hosts to score easy goals.

In that game, Sergei Matveevs men proved that they can be deadly on the break, which bodes well ahead of a match against an Olympiacos side that has been expansive at home. In Portugal, Krasnodar didnt exactly dominate in terms of chances created, but scored three goals by being deadly on the break. Krasnodar struggled to get going at home during the previous round, as they lost by a goal to nil, but the Russians came to life on the road.

Considering that home advantage will also be favoring Olympiacos in this one, it looks more than likely that Krasnodar will be making the trip back home with a defeat under their belt. On the other hand, Olympiacos are unbeaten in their last five clashes at this venue and have been clinching the win by sizable margins in almost each and every one them.

However, for all they impressed in the final third, Olympiacos struggled to contain their visitors, who after posting 1.75 expected goals for were very unfortunate not to score. When playing Plzen at this venue, Wednesdays hosts scored four goals and created an impressive 3.55 expected goals for, while they were once again effective in the final third when hosting Basaksehir during the previous round. On that occasion, the Greek outfit scored twice and posted another encouraging expected-goals-for figure of 2.79.

Our prediction for this Champions League match:

Add in the fact that the visitors thrived (in an offensive sense) when playing on the break against Porto and we can conclude that backing the goals to arrive in no small number on Wednesday is the way to go. However, Olympiacos, who shipped 1.75 and 1.97 expected goals during the last round, looked very shaky against Basaksehir, while they also looked susceptible to the counter. In the betting, Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score stands out as a viable option. If their last two efforts at Karaiskakis Stadium are anything to go by, then the hosts have more than enough quality to do some damage against a Krasnodar back-line that shipped twice in Portugal.

Anyhow, we believe that Olympiakos are going to extend their winning run in the Champions League qualifiers on Wednesday evening. A man to watch in the home team will be Mathieu Valbuena, who joined the club earlier this summer. The Russians, on the other hand, did well to upset Porto in the double-header, but it is well known that the Dragons chiefs were forced to sell several first-team regulars in the summer transfer window.

However, the likes of Konstantinos Fortounis and Avraam Papadopoulos will miss the game due to injury. Serbian winger Lazar Randjelovic could have only dreamt of this glorious start for Olympiacos. As a result, he is likely to be rewarded with a place in the first team. He returned from a loan spell with Radnicki Nis and made instant impact with two goals.

However, I believe its time this changes. Last weeks match was only the second-ever H2H encounter between these two sides. An early goal would allow them to go a bit easier in the match, while the hosts will need to throw all of their cards on the table. Olympiacos Piraeus hold a comfortable lead but cant afford to drop their guard down. Each team won once without conceding.

Guerrero opened the scoring after 30 minutes of the match and the Russians did everything to get back in the game. However, a brace from Randjelovic steered Olympiacos towards what became a proper beating. The Serbian footballer got his name on the score sheet in 78th and 86th minute, before Podence hammered the final nail into Krasnodars coffin. As a result, even if they lose in Krasnodar, it wont be the end of the world. They have plenty of depth and quality in their squad and I firmly believe they will be able to do so. The Greek giants did all the heavy lifting in the first leg. With such a comfortable cushion, the visitors will now be looking to score at least one goal.
