Olympiakos performed with great credit during a 1-1 first-leg draw against Wolves in Greece after going down to 10 men with less than half an hour gone.
Having knocked out Arsenal in the previous round thanks to a 2-1 extra-time win in London, we feel they command plenty of respect at Molineux.
Punters can get Evens for the visitors to avoid defeat in normal time and that is our initial Wolves vs Olympiakos prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves followed up finishing second behind Braga in their pool by knocking out Espanyol, effectively ending that tie with a 4-0 home win in the opening leg.
However, they were in better form at that point and have not quite managed to create as good an impression since returning from lockdown.
Losses to Arsenal, Sheffield United and Chelsea saw Wanderers slip down to seventh in the Premier League.
Nuno Espirito Santo said: “The season is not finished yet, it’s not over for us yet; we have 10 days to prepare for a game.
“The draw against Olympiakos is what we have to focus on. We have to play a good game, because Olympiakos are a good team.”
Wanderers have been sluggish early on in a number of games lately, so 17/10 for their opponents to score first stands out from the Wolves vs Olympiakos odds.
Last Wolves line-up: Rui Patricio, Doherty, Boly, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Saiss, Dendoncker, Neto, Jimenez, Jota.
A Look At Olympiakos’ Betting Odds
Olympiakos were far from disgraced when third behind Bayern Munich and Tottenham in a Champions League pool.
They drew 2-2 with Spurs in Greece and led 2-0 in London before eventually going down 4-2.
Questions were raised over their commitment to this competition after a 1-0 home loss to Arsenal.
However, Olympiakos then prevailed 1-0 in normal time at Emirates Stadium and 2-1 after an extra 30 minutes to advance via the away goals rule.
Since the restart, they have won eight of 10 Greek Super League games to secure a runaway title triumph, as well as reaching their domestic cup final.
Veteran forward Youssef El Arabi has enjoyed a stellar campaign, while the delay allowed key midfielder Kostas Fortounis to make a full recovery from injury.
This is a useful outfit and 7/4 for the visitors to advance is added to our Wolves vs Olympiakos betting tips.
