A common theme in more recent Olympiacos games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.
From their prior sextet of matches before this one, in as many as 6 of them a bet on both teams scoring would’ve been a loser.
Leading up to this clash, Olympiacos:
- are unbeaten in the league by Panathinaikos in their last 7 matches.
- are unbeaten in their previous 5 home league matches.
Following on from being defeated in their last game at the hands of Atromitos in Super League action, Panathinaikos will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that match, Panathinaikos managed 55% possession and 8 shots on goal with 3 on target. At the other end, Atromitos got 6 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Lazaros Christodoulopoulos (88') was the scorer for Atromitos.
For 5 of the previous 6 games involving Panathinaikos, a comparatively low number of goals have been hit between them and their opposition. The overall average number of goals per game during that period is a mere 1.83, with the number of goals averaged by To Trifylli being 1. We will just have to find out if that trend will be continued on into this next match.
A look at their previous results shows us that Panathinaikos:
- are winless against Olympiacos in away games against them for the last 7 league matches. Not good at all.
- have not been beaten in their last 3 away league matches.

Thanks to a completely injury-free squad to pick from, Panathinaikos manager László Bölöni has no fitness worries whatsoever before this clash.
We’re inclined to think that Olympiacos will, in all likelihood, stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
In contrast, Panathinaikos will be up against it to score a goal of their own although we do see them scoring here as well.
Our tip is for a controlled 3-1 winning margin for Olympiacos when the full-time whistle blows.
