Atletico Madrid vs Olympiakos (Champions League, 26.11.2014)

Atletico Madrid host Olympiakos for what will be a hard fought match with a lot of goals, considering the group A leaders need to make amends after that shock defeat from the first leg. With two games to spare, Atletico are on the first place in the group with nine points, and Olympiakos hopes to qualify if they win in Madrid and Juventus does not win against Malmo.

The La Liga champions are currently on the third place in the table, two points short of Barcelona and four from Real Madrid. Atletico had an unbeaten run of five matches before they fell at the hands of Real Sociedad with 2-1. After that defeat, Diego Simeone managed to rally his team, and they went on winning with 3-1 against Malaga, but had to do so without Mario Mandzukic who got a knock and had to be substituted on the 57th minute. In Champions League, Atletico managed to keep a clean sheet in all matches after the defeat against Olympiakos and will look forward for a fourth match with the same result.
Olympiakos are placed second in the Super League table, but considering all matches in Greece were suspended indefinitely due to an attack on the assistant director of the Central Refereeing Committee, the visitors do not have practice of weekend matches. Jimmy Durmaz is under doubt for Olympiakos with a thigh strain and Jimenez is tipped to stay in the line against his former club. Atletico will be without Miranda, but with Turan in great form, and Mandzukic to be submitted to a fitness test.

Atletico won both their Champions League games, with an aggregate score of 6-0, and Vicente Calderon is where the hosts look more solid, they won 7 out of eight matches at home. An Atletico win has 1.35 odds, Olympiakos 9.00 and a draw has 5.00 odds. We are betting 7 units on Atletico to score over 2.5 goals per match with 2.75 odds from 888sport. Mitroglou to score has 5.80 odds, Affellay 7.00, while for Atletico Mandzukic has 2.04 odds to score anytime, Griezmann 2.48, Koke and Arda Turan 4.20.
