Olympiacos Piraeus vs Aston Villa Match Preview And Prediction

Olympiacos Piraeus vs Aston VillaAfter falling to Olympiakos 2-4 in the first leg of the UEFA Conference League semi-final, Aston Villa has a mountain to climb. Seven days later, the two teams square off once more in the rematch. Can the Lions make a historic return on Thursday night at the port of Piraeus?

Six of Olympiakos’ previous seven games across all competitions saw goals from both teams. In each of Villa’s previous four Conference League games, at least three goals were scored. This season, Ollie Watkins leads Villa’s scoring charts in both the Premier League and Conference League.

The latter stretch of the season has seen a sharp decline in Aston Villa’s performance. In the last three games in all competitions, Unai Emery’s team has managed two draws and one loss. On Sunday afternoon, they were defeated 1-0 away at Brighton. Fortunately for their supporters, Villa’s recent losses and Spurs’ decline in form have kept them seven points ahead of Villa in fifth place.

Olympiakos’s tale is the total opposite. With a string of seven victories and one tie in their last eight games across all competitions, they are flying high. However, Jose Luis Mendilibar’s team is only ranked fourth in the Greek Super League. With a game remaining, they are five points behind leaders AEK Athens.

Olympiacos Piraeus vs Aston Villa: Betting Analysis

Olympiakos and Aston Villa have never had the chance to come into contact with one another before. Seven days ago in Birmingham, Olympiakos staged an incredible 4-2 triumph in the first leg of this Conference League semi-final match. Ayoub El Kaabi’s hat-trick at Villa Park proved to be the difference.

In Piraeus on Thursday night, we anticipate another open match with of opportunities. Since 1982, Villa has not advanced to the European semifinals. Despite the harsh atmosphere in Greece, they will not give up a chance to go to the final without putting up a real fight.

This season, Olympiakos has lost at home in Europe. They lost 1-4 to Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Conference League’s final-16 round and 2-3 to Freiburg in the Europa League group stage. Under Mendillibar, they play aesthetically pleasing football. Given Villa’s offensive capability, we must opt with the 2.75 odds on the away win and over 2.5 goals wager.

The 5.00 odds that are available for Ollie Watkins to score at any moment for the Lions are also extremely valuable. For Villa, Watkins is having a fantastic season across the board. He has scored 19 goals in the Premier League and 8 goals in the Conference League.
