Olympiacos vs West Ham tips and predictions: Hammers can extend unbeaten streak in Greece

Planet Sport Bet ambassador Robbie Savage thinks West Ham will make it 18 unbeaten when they face Olympiacos in the Europa League.

Obviously, West Ham are on a fantastic run in Europe, unbeaten now in 17 games, winning 16 and drawing one. 

Difficult game against Olympiacos. I think their game at the weekend against Panathinaikos was abandoned. 

Olympiacos are at home, I think West Ham will go there and they’ll continue the unbeaten run.

They obviously need to bounce back from that 4-1 defeat against Aston Villa, but their record in Europe is very good. I think they’ll go there and get a draw. I’m going 1-1.

Robbie’s Tip: Olympiacos 1-1 West Ham

Olympiacos vs West Ham team news

Andreas Ndoj will serve a suspension for a red card picked up against Backa Topola.

Wolves loanee Daniel Podence is a familiar face and should start for the Greeks.

David Moyes has the luxury of a full squad to choose from on Thursday, although he may resist the temptation to make as many changes as in previous games.

Mohammed Kudus has been increasingly influential and should finally start for the Hammers.

 

Key stats

- Last meeting took place in the 1965/66 Cup Winners’ Cup.
- Olympiacos are winless in their last six home games against English clubs.
- Olympiacos are winless in 11 Europa League group-stage games.
- West Ham are unbeaten in 17 games in Europe - 16 wins and one draw

 

Planet Sport’s other bets to consider

West Ham are in the habit of winning in Europe so it’s hard to see who will stop them at this stage. It’s not beyond them to win here.

If you happen to think they can go one better than Robbie’s draw prediction, then a straight-up win is priced above even money.

Unfortunately, the Hammers are favourites to win, so there’s little value in using the double chance market, but the draw is an option.

Olympiacos’ home record coupled with the atmosphere at Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki makes this a tough test, and yet the Greeks are winless in 11 Europa League group stage games.

It’s also worth noting that they’ve lost seven of eight at home against teams from Europe’s top five leagues and they’re winless in six against English teams.

Five of the Hammers’ eight away games had two or fewer goals en route to the Europa Conference League final last season, so under 2.5 goals may offer value.

Jarrod Bowen has scored five of West Ham’s 11 away goals this season and you could treble your money if the England international scores anytime.
