Olympiakos vs Barcelona Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
We have a real treat ahead of us this Tuesday. Two teams with long histories and big traditions will face each other and try to provide good time and excitement for the fans. Olympiakos will host FC Barcelona at the Karaiskakis Stadium.
Olympiakos will be looking for their first win in their group stage this season. They have lost all of the previous three matches with the goal difference of -5. They lost the first two matches to Sporting and Juventus and the third one to their today’s rival, FC Barcelona. They lost that match by the score of 3-1 at the Camp Nou. Nikolaou of Olympiakos managed to score and early goal mid-first half and with it opened the goal scoring sheet. Messi and Digne managed to score one goal each in the span of three minutes and with those goals they set the final score. Barcelona have dominated the entire game, as one would expect, while the Greek team did not get many chances. They had just one shot on goal for the entire game.
Barcelona have been playing amazing this season. They are playing flawlessly in all competitions. In La Liga, they are one of the unbeaten teams, with the other two being Atletico Madrid and Valencia. In group D they managed to win all three games. They have conceded just one goal while scoring seven. First, they beat Juventus and Sporting and in their third match, they won against the same rival as for this match.

This is Barcelona's record-equalling 22nd UEFA Champions League group stage campaign and 14th in succession.
