Last year, the club lost to the Bulgarian Ludogorets in the Champions League qualification, after which it moved to the Europa League, where they made it to the playoffs, but lost there to the Italian Atalanta.

Olympiacos has not yet held official meetings in the new season, having played eight test matches, losing four of them with two draws and two wins.

Prediction

Maccabi Haifa win 2.76. Draw 3.22. Olympiacos win 2.52.

Both teams in their championships can boast of a reliable defensive line. Our prediction for this match is under 2.5 goals for 1.77.
