Sporting vs Olympiacos Prediction 22 November 2017

Tournament: Champions League
Location: Estadio Jose Alvalade
Match date: 22.11.2017 at 19:45

On November 22 2017 in the upcoming regular game of the 5th round of the group stage of the Champions League at the Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisboa the local Sporting will play against Olympiacos from Greece.

The Portuguese Primeira Division is almost on its equator and Sporting look rather unstable in it. They haven’t lost a single game in the national championship as they won eight times and drew three times. Now they are on the second place in the table 4 points below the leaders. In the Euro Cups campaign they are also really unstable. In their four games already played in Champions League groups stage Sporting outplayed Olympiacos 2:3, lost to Barcelona 0:1 and Juventus 2:1 and also drew in another match against the Old Lady 1:1.

As for Olympiacos, they make all of their fans nervous in the current season. After the bad start of the Greece national championship they still managed to improve the situation. After 11 games already played in it Olympiacos have 20 points with 21:13 goal difference which lets them take the third place in the table with 21:13 goal difference. As for the Champions League, Olympiacos look really poor there. In their four games already played in the Group D Olympiacos only gained one point as they drew Barcelona 0:0. In the rest of the games they lost to Barcelona 3:1, Juventus 2:0 and Sporting 2:3.

Sporting have an advantage in the history of head-to-heads of the teams. They have only played two games against each other and one of them was played on September 12 and Sporting won 2:3 in it. Sporting look rather strong in their domestic games while the conditions of Olympiacos are really controversial. That’s why we think that the hosts are much more likely to win this time.
