Both teams come into this Europa League match with a decent amount of time to prepare and with Wolves having a very valuable away goal from the 1-1 draw in the first leg, you’d have to fancy their chances here. The Greek champions aren’t a pushover though and rarely go without scoring so should make things tough for the home side. Let’s look for some value with a Same Game Multi bet.
Wolves didn’t exactly finish their Premier League campaign with a flurry. They lost to both Chelsea and Sheffield United, could only draw with Burnley and beat Crystal Palace and Everton. Olympiakos will be a sterner test than the latter pair. Wolves’ home record is very good though, they’ve won five out of their seven most recent at home, drawing and losing one apiece.
Olympiakos have a similarly good away record, they’ve won four out of their last seven on the road, drawing two (winning one in extra time) and losing one. Both teams have good goalscoring records, Wolves averaged 1.42 goals at home in the Premier League this season, Olympiakos averaged 1.67 on their travels last season. We’re getting great odds on Both Teams To Score and feel like the market is undervaluing Olympiakos’ chances.
As everyone and his dog knows, Wolves love a late goal. They scored an incredible 58.8% of their goals in the last 30 minutes of matches so we’re expecting them to get at least one in the closing stages here again.
Comparing that to Olympiakos, they scored a commendable 30 goals over their 18 away league matches this season with 56% of those coming in the first half of matches.
They averaged 1.11 goals per first half and love to get ahead in games early.
Needing an away goal here, we’re expecting them to take the game to Wolves and are more than good enough to get off the mark within the first 45 minutes. I fancy A Goal to be scored in Both Halves.
Wolves were averaging 4.97 corners and conceding 3.74 per game over the season while the away side were averaging 5.88 and conceding 3.90.
Obviously enough both sides here don’t concede too many but going up against one another, and with so much at stake, we can see a match full of attacks, especially in the second half, leading to more corners.
We are going to play it safe though and go with Over 8.5 corners to give our Same Game Multi a nice little boost.
All of these picks into a Same Game Multi will give you odds of above 3/1.
