The visitors to the Giorgios Karaiskakis Stadium will encounter a raucous atmosphere and we are backing the hosts to have some joy in front of goal

Last season's beaten finalists Tottenham travel to Athens to face Greek side Olympiakos in their opening game of this year's Champions League. Mauricio Pochettino's men know they have some tough away matches in Group B with visits to Belgrade and Munich to come, so getting off to a winning start in the Greek capital is vital.

Latest odds

The north Londoners failed to win any of their three away matches in the group stages last season and Sportsbet offer them at 1.83. Olympiakos meanwhile are priced at 4.33 with the draw available at 3.40.

Olympiakos vs Tottenham Team News

Spurs will be without new signing Giovanni Lo Celso after he picked up an injury on international duty which is likely to keep him out of action until the end of October. Meanwhile defenders Davinson Sanchez and Kyle Walker-Peters are doubts, although Dele Alli is pushing for a return and Tanguy Ndombele made his comeback from injury at the weekend. The Greeks have midfielder Konstantinos Fortounis missing with a long-term injury while defender Ruben Semedo is out with a knee problem.

Olympiakos vs Tottenham Preview

Spurs have six matches coming up in the space of 17 days and Pochettino is likely to rotate in Greece in order to try and keep his team fresh. Olympiakos return to the Champions League for the first time in three seasons and this will be a big occasion for their vociferous supporters. Under Portuguese coach Pedro Martins the Greeks are playing a more attacking brand of football as shown in qualifying when they dismissed Krasnodar 4-0 and Viktoria Plzen by the same scoreline. While the hosts do not boast as much quality as their Premier League opponents they are capable of causing them some problems and there should be some interest in getting them onside.

Tips and predictions

Olympiakos are offered at 3.40 to score over 1.5 goals and Spurs' defensive European record is far from impressive. Last season they conceded over 1.5 goals in four of their six away matches, as well as the final, and while we do not associate Greek sides with expansive football, the Pireaus outfit have a more creative edge to them, inspired by new signing Mathieu Valbuena. Also worthy of interest should be the price of 1.80 for both teams to score.
