Olympiakos Piraeus vs AEK Athens FC Prediction & Betting tips
The series champion has most likely lost the battle for the championship on the final day of the match. Olympiakos Piraeus lost 3-1 at PAOK, which means they now have nine points clear of the Thessaloniki kickers. Thrylos would thus have to settle for the vice-title again as in the previous season. Basically, but the shape is right at Piraeus. After all, the club had not lost before the bankruptcy at PAOK twelve game days, where proudly jumped out ten victories. However, now with the reigning champion is again a serious hurdle on the program. After all, the table third has remained unbeaten for nine rounds and took home seven victories. In addition, AEK falls under the category of fear opponents for the hosts, since for five official games no victory over the team jumped out.
However, the hosts can playfully assess a bit more and also the home advantage is to be regarded as a favoring factor for the troupe of coach Pedro Martins. For these reasons, Olympiakos Piraeus beat AEK Athens as a home win, although only a slim win is expected. This is supported by the fact that the Red and Whites had to play last Thursday in the Europa League. An additional burden that the guests did not have. As a rule, Piraeus takes a more leisurely approach in the next league game, as four wins out of eight such games with just one goal each lead. In Olympiakos Piraeus against AEK Athens, the forecast is played on a home win with a goal difference at 4 units.
The red and white missed in the past week, the great opportunity to make the title fight yet again exciting. With 1: 3 lost to Piraeus at PAOK, which is why there are now three points in the event of a victory already nine counters, the previous series champion is back. Add to this the deduction of two points for the eleven from Thessaloniki, it is clear that Olympiakos can not compete with PAOK this season. At least not with the efficiency of the club, because in the two duels Piraeus was at least equivalent. Also on the last Sunday, at least one point would have been earned. Whether ball possession, goal shots or corner balls – all headings, in which Piraeus had the nose in front, alone with the goal shooting it haperte.
At home, the Elf is a power: read on eight wins in ten home games. Only against the league leaders it put a defeat and in November of last year, it was enough only to a draw against Panathinaikos. With a cut of 2.3 goals per home game, the club also has the best home offensive and also provides the strongest home defense with just four goals conceded. A value, but also AEK and PAOK. Often Olympiakos sets in his home games early on the course for a victory, since at least five of the eight home games won a break provided. Last Thursday, Piraeus also had to play a home game against Dynamo Kiev in the Europa League. The match ended with a performance-based 2: 2, the compensation for the Ukrainians, however, fell only in the 90th minute.
The current title holder is five points behind Piraeus in third place. Since he too, like PAOK, went into the season with a deduction of even three points, the gap would actually be smaller. The team plays very stable for weeks and has not been defeated for nine matchdays. The last defeat in the Super League is about two and a half months back when the twelve-time champion lost surprisingly at Panetolikos 1: 2.
Also on board is Ezequiel Ponce in attack. The 21-year-old Argentinian missed the last matchday in a meager 1-0 home win against OFI Crete due to a card suspension. How important he has been for the team of coach Manolo Jimenez in recent weeks can be seen in his record of seven goals in the last eight missions. Only once during this period, he remained without a own goal and with 13 goals, the access of OSC Lille from last summer is currently the second best scorer in the Super League. The showpiece of Énosis is above all the defense, who conceded only eight goals this season. A value that no other club undercuts in the Greek House of Lords.
