Olympiacos is in a tough spot heading into Wednesday's match.
They fell apart against Schalke 04 in the first round of the UCL after finding a way to tie them in the 58th minute. But things got worse as they lost 3-1 against Arsenal after also tying that match right before half. This certainly brings up questions about this team's defensive abilities and their stability. They lead the Greek League with seven wins in seven matches and have scored 18 goals while allowing only 3 in that span.

Meanwhile Montpelier has been struggling in the French League where they have only won twice in nine matches. With just 8 points, they are in 16th place in the standings and have only scored 12 goals in that span. More importantly, they have not won yet at home in the French league and have only scored four goals in four matches. This has already been reflected in their UCL tournament as they lost at home to Arsenal and drew on the round against Schalke 04. Souleymane Camara leads the team with 4 goals while Younes Belhanda has 3 goals and 1 assist.
Prediction: A tough match to judge considering that both teams have struggled in the UCL. However, Olympiacos has been winning and will be playing on the road where Montpelier has struggled this season. 1-0 Olympiacos.
