Olympique Marseille vs Olympiacos Piraeus – UEFA Champions League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Group C Match Day 5 encounter, with Olympique Marseille taking on Olympiacos Piraeus on Tuesday the 1st of November, 2020, at Orange Vélodrome.

Olympique Marseille have already lost all hope of being in the Champions League last 16, but they can still make it to the Europa League Round of 32. Key for that, is to beat Olympiacos in this game. The French side are still without a point in this group, while Olympiacos have three. Back in October, the Greek side beat Marseille 1-0 at home, thanks to an added-time goal. The French now need a win, and if it’s by two goals (or more), all the better. If it’s a 1-0, and they end up level on points after next week’s matches, it will come down to the overall goal difference in the group. If Marseille win by one goal but concede (2-1, 3-2), it will be Olympiacos who will have the advantage in case they finish level on points. Marseille’s current form reads; WLWLL. They last played on Saturday, they beat Nantes 3-1. Coach André Villas-Boas played a 4-2-3-1 formation last week, when they lost 0-2 to Porto. Marseille finished the game with 10 players, as Balerdi got sent-off in the 70th minute.

Olympiacos may be third in the table, on three points, six behind second-placed Porto, but mathematically they can still qualify for the Champions League last 16. Obviously, they need to win in France, and beat Porto as well, next week, at home. Also, they need Manchester City to beat Porto today. All in all, they… need a lot of things to finish second. Realistically, finishing third would be a success for them. Their current form reads; WLWWL. They last played on Saturday, they beat Aris 1-2 away from home, in Greece’s championship. Coach Pedro Martins played a 5-4-1 formation last week at home against City, a game Olympiacos lost 0-1 looking incredibly poor. An… excuse is that they had non other than mighty City opposite them, but still, from a Champions League group stage team, you expect… more, at least the very basics, interchange four-five passes in a row, not keep losing it right after earning it...

Marseille have hosted Olympiacos twice before; they won 3-0 in 1994, and lost 0-1 in 2011.

This is Marseille’s chance to… save whatever can be saved...

A 2-0 victory for the hosts is predicted at full-time.

Date: Tuesday, 1st of November, 2020.

Venue: Orange Vélodrome

Kick-off time: 21:00 (GMT+2).
