Olympiakos Looking for a Win in the Greek Cup

On Wednesday, Aris will host Olympiakos for the second leg of their Greek Cup quarterfinal matchup at Stadio Harilaou Kleánthis Vikeldis. Olympiakos held a slim lead of 1:0 at the first meeting a week ago. In January 2023, Olympiakos prevailed in their previous meeting at home by a score of 1:1. They have won both of their previous matches against Aris.

In the last ten games, playing as the host proved to be very beneficial, as the team that played on its home field recorded seven victories and avoided defeat in nine of those games. In the ten most recent H2H matches between Olympiakos and Aris, only two ended in draws. Two of their last five games saw more than 2.5 goals scored, and two saw both teams score. The Olympiakos managed to keep a clean sheet three times while the Aris failed to do so.

There were a total of nine goals scored in this time frame. Sunday's match between Olympiakos and Atromitos ended in a 1:1 draw away from home. The team has won two games without counting the game before it and is undefeated in ten games. In the ten previous Olympiakos games, playing at home was of little help, with the hosting team winning four and the traveling teams winning two. Two of Olympiakos' previous five games ended with more than 2.5 goals, and two of those games saw both teams score.
The team was able to stop their opponents from scoring three times, and in each of those games, they scored at least once. The teams had scored an average of 2.4 goals in each of their previous five games against the team. Overall, the game is going to be a tough fight between two top teams.
