Head to Head


Olympiakos and Neftchi have never met before.

Olympiakos Form


Olympiakos won a 46th Greek Super League title last season, running away with it by a massive 26 points. 

Pedro Martins' side ended the league season with wins over PAOK and Panathinaikos, but were unable to do the double. They lost the Greek Cup Final 2-1 to PAOK.

After being knocked out of last year's Champions League group stages, Olympiakos enjoyed a run to the last 16 of the Europa League. 

They won 1-0 at Arsenal, but lost on aggregate after a 3-1 first leg defeat at home.

In preparation for the new season, the Greek champions have played seven friendlies. Wins over Wolfsberger AC, Krasnodar, CSKA Sofia, Univ. Craiova and Aris are joined by a draw with Ufa and a loss to Salzburg.

Olympiakos Team News


Olympiakos have sold goalkeeper José Sá to Wolves and forward Hugo Cuypers to Mechelen. Bruma has returned to PSV Eindhoven and José Holebas and Abdoulaye Keita have left.

Among a host of new arrivals is midfielder Pierre Kunde, who has been snapped up from Mainz.

Goalkeeper Tomáš Vaclík, midfielders Aguibou Camara and Algassime Bah and forward Tiquinho have all joined on free transfers.

Neftchi Baku Form


Neftchi booked their spot in the second round of qualifying after a 4-2 aggregate win over Dinamo Tbilisi.

A 2-1 away win set up Samir Abbasov’s side and they completed the job last week with a 2-1 win at home in Baku.

Namiq Alasgarov scored in both legs of the first round qualifier.

Neftchi won a ninth Azerbaijan Premyer Liqa title, winning their final four games of the season without conceding a goal. That included a final day title decider against Qarabag.

Neftchi Baku Team News


Namiq Alasgarov is key to Neftchi's hopes of progressing. He scored 19 league goals in 26 appearances last season and found the net in both wins over Dinamo Tbilisi.
