We can see from these Fenerbahce vs Olympiacos odds that the Turkish team are the expected winners and it's not even close. After all, Fenerbahce had a solid game in the first-leg despite the loss and now they'll host the match, so we understand why they're the favourites.

However, their H2H record against Olympiacos paints a different picture. Also, both teams are doing well at the moment, so this match might be closer than expected.

In any case, if you enjoyed our predictions for this match, don't forget to take a look at our latest football betting tips as well.

Last five H2Hs: Olympiacos with the advantage in official matches

These two teams have met five times before, but two of those matches were friendlies, both of which Fenerbahce won. The situation is quite different in official matches, where Olympiacos notched all three wins—twice in the Europa League in 2021, and last week in the first leg of UECL quarter-finals.

Fenerbahce preview: Can they overcome the deficit?

Before their duel with Galatasaray in the Turkish Super Cup, from which Fenerbahce walked off after one minute in protest against the Turkish FA, Fenerbahce had won five of their six matches. Overall, they're having a good season, both in Europe and at home and remain firmly in the domestic title race.

Meanwhile, Joshua King, Jayden Oosterwolde, and Mert Hakan Yandas are on the team's injury list at the moment.

Olympiacos preview: One step away from the semi-finals

Olympiacos might have the edge in this tie, but they have been inconsistent this season and are only fourth in the Greek league right now. That being said, they aren't too far behind the top, and sit just six points behind league leaders AEK with a game in hand too.

When it comes to team news, Bandiougou Fadiga and Donor Leidner are out with injuries, while Panagiotis Retsos is suspended.

Predicted LineupTzolakis – Rodinei, Ndoj, Carmo, Ortega – Masouras, Hezze, Chiquinho, Fortounis -El Kaabi, Jovetic

Player to watch: Ayoub El Kaabi

The Moroccan international has been crucial for Olympiacos this season, with 17 goals in the Greek championship and five goals in the Europa Conference League.

Can El Kaabi score twice or more?

We already saw El Kaabi net multiple goals on a few occasions this season, including the second leg against Maccabi Tel Aviv in the round before this, so he might be a good choice to score two or more goals in this match too.
