Besiktas Vs Olympiacos
Besiktas secured a solid 1-1 draw in the first leg of this tie and will be hoping to finish the job on home soil on Thursday.
Besiktas have been flying of late and will be looking to add some European glamour to what has been a hugely solid domestic season so far. The side are sitting pretty at the top of the table in Turkey and with a two point gap between themselves and second spot can afford somewhat to focus their full attention on the UEL, at least for the next few days. The side are massive outsiders to win the tournament but with form so good, and their victory over Hapeol Be’er Sheva fresh in the memory the side will be tough to stop and hard to beat this season.
Olympiacos are going to be very tough to beat indeed in this one and I think they will be looking to dispose of Besiktas with ease on Thursday. The side are flying at the top of the Greek Premier League having picked up 54 points from just 24 matches. The side did not really perform in the first leg of this tie though and will face a real up hill battle getting past a tough Besiktas side in Turkey.
I think it is fair to describe the first leg between these two sides as a somewhat nervy affair. Neither of these teams seemed keen to show their hand in the first 30 minutes of the game, in what was a very nip and tuck game of football. However, Cambiasso popped up after 36 minutes to give Olympiakos the lead before Aboubakar levelled things up with a goal after 53 minutes. Both sides seemed to shut up shop largely after that and seemed content to wait for the second leg of the tie.
I will be going for the home win in this one. Besiktas have shown they have what it takes to mix it in this competition and I think after taking such a solid result from the first leg they will be confident of finishing the job on home soil. Double the home win with under 2.5 goals and then add to that Aboubakar to get his second in as many games against Olympiakos. Good luck.
