Europe’s current best football team in Barcelona can take a big leap against the Champions League finals after winning the two initial group game matches and now set against Olympiakos.
Barcelona has a full pot, won 3-0 over Juventus and 1-0 away at Sporting CP, and tops Spanish Primera División after a delicate start of the season, the Super Cup final against Real Madrid stripped off. Their first draw since then arrived at 1-1, away from Atlético Madrid. Catalan hero became Luís Suárez with his receipt ball in the final minutes.
On the injury list, Rafinha, Ousmane Dembélé and Arda Tutan are left for Barcelona. Nothing new under the sun.
On the other side of the plane half, Olympiakos’s group coup takes place. Unlike Barcelona, they have zero in the scoreboard intact and the heaviest loss was of course the premier, the key match home against Sporting, 2-3. Some Champions League finals would of course not be talked about, but now they are a good bit in the league of the third place league leading to the Europa League finals.
Jaguar Vukovic and Ben Baouhane are at risk of losing the match for Olympiakos. The status of the mentioned gentlemen is published more closely.
The differences from the absolute peak in Europe to the jumpers have grown sharply in recent years and the feeling is that it exploded to this season. Several matches in each Champions League round where the numbers are even rising.
And will this be the one where Barcelona is winning? Otherwise, I would be surprised, actually.
In part, Barcelona’s massacre of men is better than Olympiakos, now also strengthened by the home and, besides, the Greeks are completely out of shape. Before the weekend’s scarce loss of victory against Panionios, third losses had been eliminated, two of which were in the series they had home for seven years.
Outside Europe, the Champions League, Olympiakos has rarely had much to resist the absolute top. Complete losses, one by one. They must have stood against Juventus, which Barcelona crushed 3-0 at Camp Nou, well – but the greater the weakness seemed to be in the 2-3 loss at home against Sporting. The team reduced at double occasions in the final minutes and were otherwise unmanageable.
This should be a cat’s game against the rat …
