Wolves vs Olympiakos is one of Thursday night’s (August 6) big Europa League matches. Wolves are one of two English Premier League sides left in the competition and they need to lift the trophy if they want to be playing in Europe next season.
That’s because a final day Premier League defeat at Chelsea cost them an automatic spot in next year’s Europa league, while Arsenal claimed the last spot for English clubs in the competition by winning the FA Cup Final.
Despite Wolves’s obvious motivation, the Greek Champions won’t be a pushover, and this match could easily go either way. Wolves know that stopping Olympiakos from scoring will be enough to reach the quarterfinals but Olympiakos have scored plenty of goals on their travels this season and know they must score. That should mean this should be a more open match than the bookies are expecting, which is why our tip for Wolves vs Olympiakos is for more than 2.5 goals.
Wolves came through Europa League qualification back in July to progress to the group stages, where they made a poor start by losing at home to Braga. But they progressed to the last 32 by winning four of their last five group games, including home wins over Slovan Bratislava, Besiktas (4-0). They then beat Espanyol in their home leg of the last-32 match.
Olympiakos can’t be underestimated though, as they secured the Greek title without losing a match. They dropped into this year’s Europa League after finishing third behind Bayern Munich and Tottenham in their Champions League Group. However, after losing 0-1 at home to Arsenal in the last-32, they stunned the Gunners with a 2-1 victory at the Emirates Stadium to take them into the last-16.
Olympiakos have also only failed to score away at Bayern Munich on their European travels this season, scoring one or two goals in their matches against Red Star, Tottenham, and Arsenal. That’s why over 2.5 goals is our Wolves vs Olympiakos tip at odds-against.
