Olympiacos vs Freiburg: Top free betting tips
Get ready for an exciting showdown as Olympiacos, under the management of Diego Martínez, prepares to face Freiburg in the UEFA Europa League. Despite a losing run before this duel, Christian Streich's men cannot be underestimated and have a habit of surprising their rivals with their backs against the wall.
Match result prediction: Freiburg to win
Martínez would want Olympiacos to improve their impressive record of six wins and two draws in his eight games at the helm. On paper, they have an ailing Freiburg outfit to contend with and should get over the line against them. However, they will be contending with a team from a competitive league and have historically come up short against them. Prior to their defeats to Stuttgart and Dortmund, they were on a three-match winning streak and will call upon that momentum to triumph in Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Three of Freiburg's last four matches have seen at least three or more goals. On the other hand, Olympiacos are also on an impressive scoring form and four of their last five matches have concluded with Over 2.5 goals. As they clash in this opening round of Group A, we expect fireworks to fly with at least three goals seen in this fixture.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Freiburg
Freiburg have scored at least two goals in three of their five competitive fixtures. Olympiacos have laid waste to their rivals in the Greek Super League, scoring goals freely. That potency will help their cause against the Vultures, against whom they are the underdogs despite their poor form and playing in front of home fans. We have confidence in the German side for scoring at least twice while also getting bloodied in a 2-1 victory.
Olympiacos vs Freiburg: Form, recent games, and news
Under the guidance of manager Diego Martínez, Olympiacos has enjoyed a promising start to the season, remaining unbeaten in their last eight games. However, Martínez would emphasize the need for improvement, particularly in their defending of set-pieces that saw them draw against AEK Athens.
In the UEFA Europa League, they secured their place in the group stages after victories over Genk and Čukarički. This marks their 13th consecutive year in European competition, and they now face familiar foes, Freiburg, in their opening group fixture.
Freiburg enters this Europa League meeting following a challenging domestic run, losing their last two fixtures, including a 4-2 defeat to Borussia Dortmund. Manager Christian Streich described the loss as “brutal,” particularly due to his side's second-half struggles, where they conceded three goals after holding a halftime lead.
Freiburg's defence appears vulnerable, conceding a total of nine goals in their last two matches, a problem they urgently need to address. Additionally, the German outfit aims to reverse their fortunes in the Europa League, having gone four matches without a win before this meeting.
