Olympiakos kick off their UEFA Champions League group stage campaign with a home clash against Marseille on Wednesday.

Olympiakos Form


Olympiakos have made an unbeaten start to the season in seven matches in all competitions. Included in that was a UEFA Champions League play-off game with Omonia Nicosia that ended in a 2-0 aggregate victory for the Greek giants.

Domestically, Olympiakos have won three of their first four matches alongside a draw, leaving them in second place in the Greek Super League with a game in hand on leaders Aris. The defeated Atromitos 4-0 on Saturday in their most recent game.

Youssef El-Arabi has been key in their excellent start after scoring six goals in six appearances in all competitions thus far.

Olympiakos Team News


Pedro Martins has a fully-fit squad to choose from on Wednesday. He may select an unchanged side from Saturday’s 4-0 win over Atromitos.

Marseille Form


Having qualified for the Champions League for the first time since the 2013/14 season, more will have been expected from Marseille in the early weeks of this campaign. 

Marseille find themselves sixth in Ligue 1 after seven games despite opening the season with back-to-back wins.

What followed was a run of four games without a win, starting with a defeat to Saint-Etienne and three consecutive draws. However, they picked up a timely win last time out with a 3-1 victory over Bordeaux.

A win on Wednesday would be Marseille’s first away UEFA Champions League victory since 2011.

Marseille Team News


Marseille have no reported injuries to contend with heading into Wednesday’s clash.
