Match Preview

Ahead of our Barcelona vs Olympiacos preview and soccer predictions, Ernesto Valverde’s side are looking far better than many would have expected. After taking the job in the summer, the former Athletic Bilbao coach has settled down into a consistent period of good form.

Barcelona have won their last five consecutive games in all competitions at Camp Nou, with Juventus losing 3-0 on their visit to the Catalan stadium in Group D’s first match. Olympiacos have it tough to try and improve on that scoreline.

Our Barcelona vs Olympiacos predictions are based on Barca’s terrific start to both their domestic and European campaigns, which makes it difficult to find any big value to back the favourites from the UEFA Champions League Group D odds.

Anything other than a Barcelona win is inconceivable, especially given that the Blaugrana were maintaining a perfect 100-percent league record this season up until the weekend. They still remain unbeaten.

Barcelona vs Olympiacos Prediction and Betting Advice

Juventus really struggled to create anything at Camp Nou in their first group game of the Champions League campaign, with Valverde sure to be confident that his players can control this clash in a similar way. Olympiacos arrive having lost three of their last four games, so they will not be at their sharpest to break the hosts down.

Barca have conceded just one goal in their last five games at Camp Nou, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen having a relatively easy time of it so far in the 2017/2018 campaign. Samuel Umtiti and Gerard Pique have built up a good understanding that the away side will struggle to question.

The Greek club have failed to score in each of their last four away defeats in the Champions League, which is a run that stretches back to November 2014. Winner offer the best value in the market of Barca winning without conceding at their own end, and this looks very likely indeed heading into this midweek contest.

Our Barcelona vs Olympiacos bets also revolve around the tremendous recent form of Lionel Messi. In LaLiga, he already has 11 league goals in 8 appearances, with a recent hat-trick for Argentina helping to drag his country to qualification for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The Argentine forward is in tremendous form and scored a brace when Juventus came to visit Camp Nou back in September. Messi scored three goals versus Espanyol on this ground, four times versus Eibar last month, and twice against Las Palmas. Home is a happy hunting ground for him this season.

Our Barcelona vs Olympiacos picks suggest that this should be an easy win for Valverde. Messi is in top form and as a collective, the hosts are looking very strong indeed, with Betfair offering the best value on him to net twice at Camp Nou. Olympiacos’ form heading into this week has been patchy, and they won’t have the momentum required to cause an upset.
