Olympiakos vs Young Boys – Europa League Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
Group B gives us yet another game which could mean the end of continental hopes and dreams for one of the teams: Olympiakos vs. Young Boys. If the Swiss fail to win the game, they will lose all chances to qualify.
APOEL, the current league leaders, sit comfortably with 9 points and play the last team of the group, but who will join them in the 1st knockout round?

FT Result: Olympiakos 1.53 or 8/15 Draw 4.33 or 10/3 Young Boys 7.00 or 6/1
Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.80 or 4/5 Under 2.00 or 1/1
Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.90 or 10/11 No 1.90 or 10/11
Olympiakos are favorites from lots of points of view. They have the better squad, more international experience and play in front of their home fans, where they very rarely lose. APOEL is the last team which managed to beat them at home, but they usually win with very confident scorelines.
Moreover, a win could bring them the peace they need ahead of their last game when they would be able to rest a good number of first team players. Their domestic form is also great, which means they don’t have any pressure from there.
On the other hand, Young Boys play horribly away from home. Their last win (excluding cup games vs. lower league oppositions) took place in July, and since then, they’ve looked like experts in draws and losses.
It’s very hard to believe that a team with little international experience will manage to produce a surprise in Greece, where even top European clubs find it hard to win. Moreover, they’ve lost their last game against Olympiakos as well.
Olympiakos vs Young Boys Betting Tips
From a betting perspective, we favor the home team to win the game. The Swiss will try to attack since they absolutely need the win, but the Greeks will use their superior value and experience to win the game.
Solo home victory and Olympiakos to score at least twice are our favorite bets of the evening, while Young Boys under 1,5 goals is the safest bet possible.
Olympiakos Win & Under 3.5 Goals @ 2.00 or 1/1
Olympiakos To Win To Nil @ 2.40 or 7/5
