Looking at Olympiakos vs AC Milan Prediction, the two teams meet at Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium.
Olympiakos as the home team desperately needed a landslide victory in this match. That's because Pedro Martins' troops are currently 3 points behind Milan, who sit second with 10 points. If only the team nicknamed The Erythrolefki (Red-White) is capable of at least winning 4-0, they will certainly qualify for the next round because of superior head to head records.
At the first meeting, the article Pedro Martins's troops lost 3-1 by Milan at the San Siro, where a brace from Patrick Cutrone and Gonzalo Higuain's goal forced them to return to Greece empty-handed.
But unfortunately Olympiacos will head to this clash with a frantic record. The Erythrolefki were only able to claim two wins in the last five matches, with the rest ending with two draws and 1 defeat.
And in the latest action, Pedro Martins's troops only won one point during a visit to Xanthi's headquarters in the domestic league comparison. Playing at Skoda Xanthi Arena, The Erythrolefki had to settle for home with one point after only drawing 1-1.

In the latest game itself, the team nicknamed the Rossoneri was only able to draw with a score of 0-0 when entertaining Torino in the Serie A match, at the weekend.

In head to head , this will be the third meeting for the two camps, where each team is able to claim 1 victory and experience 1 defeat. And in the upcoming Friday clash it will certainly be a very fierce match, because each of them needs points to set foot in the knockout phase of the Europa League this season.
We ourselves will predict Milan to win the match over Olympiacos. However, that victory might only occur with a thin score. That's because I Rossoneri certainly play closed and rely on counter-attacks that become their mainstay to achieve victory in matches so far.
On the other hand, Olympiakos is believed to be playing openly because they need a big score to qualify for the next round. And that could backfire for Olympiakos, who will play Milan, a team that has very fast wings, with Suso on the left and Calhanoglu on the right.
