Aston Villa vs Olympiacos Piraeus Match Preview And Prediction

Aston Villa vs Olympiacos PiraeusThe opening leg of Olympiacos’ first-ever matchup with Aston Villa in the UEFA Conference League semi-final at Villa Park takes place in Birmingham. Of the 20 prior meetings between Greek and English teams, 16 have resulted in losses. Can they improve on such a dismal record and advance to the European competition final?

This Conference League season, Aston Villa has triumphed in all six of their home games. Olympiacos’ record versus English rivals is 16–20 in the past 20 games. Ollie Watkins leads Villa’s scoring in both Conference League and Premier League games.

Earlier this month, Aston Villa pulled through a dramatic penalty shootout in France. They forced extra time and penalties by scoring a late goal that eliminated Lille, a team in Ligue 1. In support of it, the Lions won four points in their next two Premier League games against Chelsea and Bournemouth. They were locked in a 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Saturday night, splitting the spoils.

On Sunday, Olympiacos defeated Lamia 4-1 at home to keep up the title fight in their home league. With a game remaining, they are five points behind leaders AEK Athens. Regarding the Conference League, the Greek team also required penalties to defeat Fenerbahce, their opponent, in the quarterfinals.

Aston Villa vs Olympiacos Piraeus: Betting Analysis

Although Aston Villa is heavily favored in this match, we don’t think they will win on Thursday. In six of the previous seven games in all competitions, the Lions have not let the net go empty. Strangely, it happened in a 2-0 victory over Arsenal, the team that has faced the hardest resistance thus far.

Six of Olympiacos’ past seven games across all competitions have seen them score at least one goal. They just defeated Lamia on Sunday afternoon with four. Under the direction of Spanish manager Jose Luis Mendilibar, they play aesthetically pleasing football, and they have a real predator in the final third in Ayoub El Kaabi.

Still, Olympiacos has suffered 16 losses versus English opponents in their last 20 meetings. With six Conference League victories this season, Aston Villa is a formidable force at Villa Park. The best betting choice is to go with the home victory & Both Teams To Score selection, which comes with extremely high odds of 3.20.

Ollie Watkins is the most impressive player for Villa. In this Premier League season, he has thirteen assists and nineteen goals. With seven goals this season, the English attacker leads the team’s scoring lists in the Conference League as well. On Thursday at Villa Park, we anticipate a ton of goals. Ollie Watkins is available to back at odds of 2.10 to score at any moment.
