Last season, the English Premier League dominated the international competitions and provided all four finalists. After the first knockout games in the premier class, the Premier League clubs face a very personal Brexit. Defending champions Liverpool, finalist Tottenham and Chelsea also suffered defeats without a goal of their own.
Arsenal vs Olympiacos Piraeus Free Betting Tips
In the Europa League it went much more satisfactorily with two wins and a draw and the progress of all three teams should only be a matter of form. Arsenal will host the Greek club Olympiakos Piraeus at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday.
The Gunners prevailed 1-0 last Thursday thanks to a late goal from Alexandre Lacazette (81st). A win with the strong Greeks at home is usually more than half the battle.
Arsenal – Statistics & current form
And the marmot greets you every year – for many years, the Gunners have divergence between reality and reality. What started at the end of the Wenger era did not improve in any way among his successors.
The Champions League was last missed three times in a row and currently a look at the betting service table service shows that participation in the premier class 20/21 across the league is probably pure utopia.
37 points from 27 league games is the worst result in well over a decade. Even last season, Arsenal had 16 points more on the credit side at that point. Only the fact that rank four is “only” seven points away puts the fans a little bit positive.
Last chance Europa League?
Nevertheless, the picture in spring 2020 could be similar to that of a year ago. The Europa League was then the last chance for the Unai Emery team to manage to return to the premier class. In the final, Arsenal were beaten in the derby against Chelsea.
The 2019/20 Europa League season started Arsenal confidently and after three wins in the first three games, the course had been set for progress. There were only two draws (and one defeat) in the second half of the group stage, but the group win in the Frankfurt group was still fixed.
Only one loss in twelve Arteta games
Since Christmas 2019, ex-player Mikel Arteta has been responsible for the sporting success at the Gunners. There was only one defeat in a dozen competitive games. However, there have been too many points (five) so far that have caused the Gunners to step a little on the spot.
Recently, however, there was no reason to criticize the results. The Arteta team has won the last three competitive games and has gained a lot of confidence. The Gunners certainly have a lot of room for improvement in play, but with every success the ease will come back a little.
The fourth win in a row is also likely due to the Greeks’ weakness away. A 1.50 is currently luring between Arsenal and Olympiacos Piraeus for the prediction of the home win.
Arsenal probable lineup:
↪ Leno – Saka, Mustafi, David Luiz, Sokratis – Guendouzi, Xhaka – Martinelli, Willock, Aubameyang – Lacazette

Olympiacos Piraeus – Statistics & current form
The 44-time Greek champion had been subscribed to the domestic championship for many years, but in the last two seasons there were, surprisingly, only the third and second places for the success-loving fans.
Although Portuguese coach Pedro Martins missed the return to the throne last year, he continued to be trusted.
National top – no defeat
A decision that turned out to be spot on at the end of February 2020. In the domestic league, the team is again strong as usual and has not yet suffered a single defeat. Olympiakos Piraeus celebrated 19 wins in 25 league games and only suffered six draws. The series champion leads the table with 63 points in the past and is currently five points ahead of defending champion PAOK Saloniki.
International flop – a win against Partizan saved the Greeks
Internationally, we’re going to be a little tough when we call the Greeks a “flop,” after all, the Martins team survived three knockout rounds in the Champions League. However, there was little reason to celebrate in the group stage. In the decisive final group game against Partizan Belgrade, a win was necessary to spend the winter internationally.
The Martins team had to shake for a long time before striker Youssef El Arabi kept his nerve from the ominous point in minute 87 and converted the penalty kick to a 1-0 victory. So the international journey continues for the time being, but the chances of progressing against the Gunners are probably only minimal. Before the second leg between Arsenal and Olympiakos Piraeus, double-digit betting odds are offered for the tip on the Greeks in the “To Qualify” market.
Probable lineup of Olympiacos Piraeus:
↪ Sa – Tsimikas, Ba, Semedo, Elabdellaoui – Camara, Bouchalakis – Valbuena, Guilherme, Masouras – El Arabi

Arsenal vs Olympiakos Piraeus Direct comparison & statistics highlights
For the first time, the two teams face off in a knockout match. However, this does not mean that the blades cross for the first time. So far, there have been a total of eight games between the two teams in the UEFA Champions League group stage.
It is striking that the tip on the draw was never right between Arsenal and Olympiakos Piraeus. Both teams celebrated four victories in the premier class, thanks to the Lacazette hit last Thursday, Arsenal has the lead again in head-to-head.

This duel on Thursday evening is a duel that has been seen repeatedly in the Champions League in recent years. In the meantime, however, both teams have to bake small rolls and be satisfied with the Europa League. The Arteta eleven already opened the door towards the round of 16 last Thursday. Before the return match between Arsenal and Olympiakos Piraeus, the odds for the English to advance are around 1.0x.
Key facts – Arsenal vs Olympiacos Piraeus tips
💫 Since the arrival of Arteta, the Gunners have been much more constant – just one loss in twelve games
💫 2015/16 won Olympiakos at the Emirates Stadium in Arsenal
💫 At the national level, Olympiakos is still undefeated
After the accompanying analysis of the two teams, we not only have no doubts about progress, but also see the home win as relatively safe. The strong ascending form of the Gunners, the good results and the well-known weakness of the Greeks can be used as arguments.
However, the prediction on the three-way market is not particularly lucrative between Arsenal and Olympiakos Piraeus. We therefore try our luck in the half-time / final market. Arsenal will take the reins from the start and an early goal would come as no surprise.
