The Wolverhampton Wanderers and Olympiacos meet at Molineux on Thursday in the second leg of their round of 16 matchup. These two squads are currently tied 1-1 which means everything is on the line in this matchup.
The Wolves are coming off a loss in their last matchup against Chelsea, but this is a squad that has been playing really well. In the previous game against Crystal Palace their defense was good, something that usually is the case giving up zero goals as they scored two. In that game Crystal Palace only had three shots on goal and that was enough to come away with a 2-0 victory. The first goal for the Wolves in that game was scored by Daniel Podence. The Wolves do have a lot of pressure in this game because if they want to qualify again next year for the Europa league this is going to be a tournament that they need to win, because they didn’t do enough in the Premier League to qualify that way. In this game look for the Wolves to play their defensive style and hope that they can get a gaol or two, while the offense doesn’t do much.
Olympiacos has to feel really good about where they are right now coming into this game. Olympiacos have won three games in a row and during that stretch they have scored nine runs total giving up one run. This is an interesting game for Olympiacos because they play such a different style. They like to play a more open style of game and in this game they are going to need to do everything in their power to attack a very tough defense. In this game the one thing they can’t do is fall behind. If they fall behind it’s going to be even harder to come away with a victory.
The Wolves are going to get the first goal and that will be the difference. Look for them to get that first goal and then to lock down on defense. It’s also a lean to the under to cash.
