Olympiakos vs Schalke by Isaiah
Olympiakos won away against PAS Giannena for the Greek Super League in the weekend by the score of 1-2. They had a good performance in the offensive sector, where they created a lot of chances to score, but for another game they had problems in defense and threatened to equalize towards the end of the game.
Anyway, they did their third win in all three games played for the Greek League, and this season they will win the title once again, this time more easy than all years, as most of other Greek teams are facing lot of problems and can't be compared with Olympiakos roster.
Olympiakos will give everything for Champions League now, they want to make a positive start in front of their fans, and not lose ground in the hunt for qualification. It's the first match of the group and they will be field their best tonight, as they do not have any particular problem.
As wrote before, their main problem is their defensive behavior. They will play with Manolas (quite unexperienced for CL level) and Contreras in the back, while they have a very good attacking line with Djebbour to the top of the attack.

Schalke won 0-2 away against Greuther Furth last Saturday for the German Bundesliga. They were superior throughout the game, and finished the game with two goals to the second half.
This result means that they remained unbeaten in Bundesliga, and they are coming with lot of confidence in tonight's match for the Champions League. Sub striker Ciprian Marica, main defender Christoph Metzelder, main attacking midfielder Chinedu Obasi, and keeper Timo Hildebrand are all out for different reasons. Huntelaar will be the unique striker for Schalke, with Julian Draxler behind him.
The fact is that Olympiakos is facing defensive problems, while they are OK in attack. Schalke is usually struggling to keep the clean sheet when they are playing away in Europe. I think that both teams will score there.
