Yet, the Greeks will be no pushovers for Wolves, having knocked Arsenal out in the previous stage.

Stat attack!

  • Olympiacos have won five of their 22 matches against English opposition, including their most recent 2-1 victory over Arsenal
  • Diogo Jota is the current top scorer in the Europa League with six goals

What are the odds?

Wolves are the favourites to win in Greece, with Ladbrokes pricing them at 6/5 – and they are just 4/9 to qualify from the tie.

That is despite Olympiacos’ stunning comeback in the previous round.

Jota will look to remain as the competition’s top scorer – but is 22/1 to score two or more goals in Piraeus.
