Olympiakos vs Atletico Madrid by Rahul
Atletico Madrid come into this fixture on the highest of highs; after beating Real Madrid at the Bernabeu and will be looking to have a similar run of performances much like they did towards the final last year. Confidence will also come through the ranks as Simeone will be back at the dugout as he is suspended from Liga games; and with him barking out instructions and giving the half time talks, it will certainly boost them.
Atletico have managed to hang on to bulk of their stars and added a bunch of good forwards including Manduzkic and Griezmann who have, in their short time in the team, show that they belong there. They have managed to secure 7 points from a possible 9 so far, keeping them undefeated which will show their detractors that they still have the firepower to win, and should not be taken lightly.
Olympiakos have shown to be regulars in this competition, and even made it through to the last 16 and lost in a close encounter to Manchester United. One thing you can say for sure, the Greeks have one of the best home records across Europe, winning 16 out of 17 games last season. They have lost 3 of their key players Manolas, Cholevas and Samaris; and while they have replaced them with some decent signings, it remains to be seen if they could fit well with the rest of the squad.
Overall Olympiakos have some new players just like Atletico Madrid, but the only difference is that Atletico Madrid have had some quality opposition, playing Real Madrid thrice to test themselves to be absolutely ready for this contest and should nick a narrow victory here.
