Olympiacos vs Maccabi Tel Aviv: Top Free Betting Tips

Olympiacos will face Maccabi Tel Aviv in one of the more evenly-matched 1/8 finals in the ECL. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Olympiacos and Maccabi are among the strongest teams in their domestic leagues and their current forms are incredible. Both sides are capable in attack and score a lot of goals in their leagues but we expect a different kind of game here. It is true that both sides had massive scorelines during the group stage but this here is a far more important fixture. Olympiacos beat Ferencvaros with 1-0 in both legs in the previous round and it showed that the team feels fine winning with minimal results. Their defensive work was incredible.

Match Result Prediction: Olympiacos to Win

There is a good chance for a draw in this fixture despite what the odds suggest. Both sides are playing solid football right now and will have their chances to win. We do not know what to expect from Maccabi because they have not played in Europe since December but based on what we saw from Olympiacos, the visitors will have a hard time breaking that defense. At the same time, the home side failed to take advantage of their high number of chances against Ferencvaros, so we do not expect a high scoreline overall.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to Olympiacos

Olympiacos got one of the toughest groups in the Europa League and logically finished 3rd. Keep in mind that they weren't in top form in the early stages of the season. Right now, the team won nine of its last ten games in all competitions and their defense has been conceding few goals. When we compare the Olympiacos vs Maccabi Tel Aviv line ups, we feel that the home side has a slight advantage in strength. Their squad is more experienced.

How Far Will Maccabi Tel Aviv Fans Travel To Olympiacos?

This journey is literally impossible by road – the distance is close to 3000 kilometers in one direction. One of the two easy options is to travel by plane to Athens and then use public transport to Piraeus. The second option is to travel to Haifa and then take a ferry to Piraeus but this is the longer option.

Olympiacos vs Maccabi Tel Aviv: Tickets

Olympiacos' fans are absolutely crazy about their team and sold out their tickets as soon as they were released. The only way to get a seat is to look at reseller marketplaces but we guarantee that the prices will be higher than usual.
