Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Olympiacos vs Genk


Olympiacos in the match with Genk will not only begin its European path in the season, but will generally play the first official match in the new campaign. Before that, the Greeks played only test matches, having played a number of interesting matches against a variety of opponents, including Norwich and Rangers.

At home, Olympiacos is traditionally a formidable force and this time the team will again try to use the home status of the meeting to create an advantage over the return game. The support of local fans should significantly help the team achieve the desired positive result.


Genk is already actively playing in the new season and before that he played in the Champions League qualification, but Servette failed to pass on aggregate and was relegated to the Europa League. The team also started inconsistently in the Belgian championship, scoring three points in the starting two rounds.

In the next match, Genk's coaching staff will most likely choose a defensive tactic, and the main task of the guests will be to play reliably at their own gates and not miss an early goal into their own net. But even in attack, Genk may well surprise his opponent, because the team obviously does not intend to sit out all 90 minutes in defense.
