Slovan Bratislava returned from the first leg at the Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus with a 1-1 draw. The coach said that this result should not be rejoiced, but hopes to develop this result.
The Slovak team held a 1-0 lead until the 86th minute, when Youssef El-Araby equalized with the hosts.
Olympiacos could have won the first match, but missed too many scoring chances. Perhaps this will change in the return game when they take a more defensive position.
As the away goals rule no longer applies, both teams will be on the same starting line at the start of the match. However, the moral advantage remains with the Bratislava Slovan, who is the host and keeps Olympiacos at home.
The club will have to face pressure from its opponents and local supporters. Their survival will depend on their resilience.
Goalkeeper Michal Sulla, midfielder Ibrahim Rabiu and winger Marian Chobot cannot be selected due to cruciate ligament injuries. Center forward Eric Ramirez is recovering from a knee injury.
Injury: Michal Sulla, Ibrahim Rabiu, Marian Chobot, Eric Ramirez
