Olympiacos “decides” qualification with Tsukaritsky from the first match

Olympiacos is the biggest candidate in front of Tsokaretsky and aspires to “finish” qualification from the first match in “Karaiskakis”. Forecasts and analytics.

OLYMPIACOS THURSDAY (24/08, 22:00 COSMOTE SPORT 1HD) welcomes Tsokaretsky to “Karaiskakis” with the aim of surely paving the way for qualification to the Europa League groups from the first match.

The “Red and White” is currently ranked 48th in the UEFA rankings, while the Serbian national team ranks 162nd. There is a clear difference in European quality and experience, so it is not surprising that Olympiacos qualifies. He is Stoiximan’s favorite with a coefficient of 1.06, while Czukarytsky’s odds go up to 9.00!

The truth is that Olympiacos has not yet 100% formed its squad for the new season. However, from the moment he overcame the most difficult stage of Genk in the third qualifying round, without even having played official matches on his feet, before the two matches with the Belgian team, Chukaretsky could not intimidate him.

Sudden change of coach

After all, the atmosphere among the Serbs was not at its best before the first meeting with Piraeus. Đukcareci started the Serbian league with seven points from three matches, but after a 2-2 home draw with Javor, she made a surprising announcement. The end of her collaboration with artist Dusan Kirkiz.

Kirkez mentored Chukaretsky for just over a year. Last season, it finished third in the Serbian League and reached the cup final, only to lose to the mighty Red Star.

The club immediately found Kirkez’s replacement in the person of Igor Matic, who wore the Chukaretsky shirt for 5 years (2012-2017) as a football player. In recent years, Matic has worked in the scouting department of the Serbian Football Federation and is now in charge of a professional team for the first time as a head coach.s. However, his first appearance was disappointingAfter losing last Friday away 3-0 against IMT Belgrade.

And at European level, Chukaretsky has nothing impressive to show for it. Her participation this year is her seventh, all from the 2014/15 season onwards. In the past two years he has been excluded In the third qualifying round of the Conference League From Twente, with a result of 7-2, and from Hammarby, with a result of 6-4!

This year he will play for the first time in his history in a European group, even after being eliminated by Olympiacos, he is guaranteed a place in the Conference League. As a club, they only have one trophy, the cup in 2015, but in the last three years they have always finished third in the Serbian league.

Its roster consists mainly of Serbian footballers. However, his European roster also includes… African touches, with players such as midfielder Sissoko (Mali), Ahlenfi (Benin), winger Mario Gomez (Guinea-Bissau), Owusu (Ghana) and striker Idiaye (Senegal).

With Scarpa and positive tradition, Olympiacos

Clearly, a serious Olympian has the potential to turn a trip to Serbia into a formal procedure. Diego Martinez’s side may have struggled in his premiership Stoiximan Super League, against the newly enlightened Panserikos, but in the second half, when Scarpa, Fortonis and Kenny came on as substitutes, his image improved dramatically. especially Scarpa and Fortunis collaboration They showed with Sabah Al Khair that the two players speak…a common football language and broadcast on the same wavelength.

The newly joined Brazilian midfielder is one of the new faces in Europe’s ‘red and white’ squad. The other one is also a newcomer Bernitz. The aforementioned two took the place of Huang and Kasim Pa. Diego Martinez reserves the right to make two more substitutions ahead of Chukaretsky’s first game, so the latest signing is likely to include the Argentine midfielder. heh.

It is reported that for the first game Rodney is not availableWhere he was expelled to Belgium. This means that Kenny will likely play at right-back against Chukaretski, although there is also the option of Brosai, who previously played as a full-back.

“Red and White” has a positive tradition with Serbian teams. In the 2019/20 season, they beat Red Star 1-0 at “Karaiskakis” in the final group stage of the Champions League, thanks to a penalty for Al-Arabi, and thus went on to reach the “32” of the Europa League. Also, in the 2017/18 season, Olympiacos knocked out Partizan in the third qualifying round of the Champions League. Then he won 3-1 in Belgrade and in the second leg in Valero drew 2-2. Finally, in the 1989/90 season, they eliminated Rad Belgrade in the first round of the UEFA Cup.

In their first three competitive matches this year, Olympiacos scored the same number of goals under 2.5 and only conceded one goal and that was a Belgium penalty, which was taken twice. Diego Martínez put the load on the defense in the first phase and gradually adds things to the attack as well. So the probability of Olympiacos beating Tsokaretsky by a clear score raises the ace from 1.21 to 1.65, but The most interesting choice is 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 in Stoiximan’s multiple choice score with a coefficient of 2.12.
