Qarabag FK vs Olympiacos Tips and Prediction
Qarabag has been brilliant recently, putting on some incredible defensive and offensive displays as they have gone six games without a loss.
They defeated Gabala in the Azerbaijan Premier League over the weekend with the lone goal coming from Filip Ozobic.
As a result, Qarabag kept a clean sheet for the second straight game, demonstrating the team’s strong defensive capabilities.
The last outcome coincidentally involved a commanding 3-0 away victory in the Europa League last week against Olympiacos.
Owusu Kwabena gave his team the lead in the 68th minute, and two more goals were scored in the game’s last 10 minutes to secure an essential three points.
While Qarabag would undoubtedly be pleased with a repeat of that outcome, the visitors now desperately need points as time is running out.
The Greek team will be trying to keep themselves in the running for moving on to the next round of the competition with their first victory of the campaign with only three games left.
Olympiacos is yet to earn a point in this competition, and a loss on Thursday will distance them from the top two teams by at least nine points. Despite the loss, Michel’s team was able to beat OFI on Sunday to resume their winning ways.
With goals from Cedric Bakambu and Garry Rodrigues, Olympiacos overcame a deficit to win. The team will need this spirit of resiliency moving forward in the second half of the Europa League group stage.
Olympiacos has had difficulty this season in European competition, as seen by their lack of points to date.
The same cannot be said of the hosts, who should have all the confidence they require after such a recent triumph against their opponents.
