Another of the Europa League ties that could conceivably go either way will be the Anderlecht and Olympiakos game. Anderlecht at home have been rock solid this season and at 7/4 they are most definitely a tempting bet. I like how Anderlecht played against Tottenham in both games and the Belgian side were unlucky to lose in the return leg. Okaka and Ezekiel have formed a decent partnership this season with Okaka being particularly impressive and netting ten league goals already, the best return in a season in his career thus far. With former Belgian golden boy Defour also in the squad this Anderlecht team can definitely cause problems for Olympiakos.
Olympiakos were unlucky to go out of the Champions League though missing out on the head to head against Arsenal after beating the gunners 3-2 in London they were in prime position but just couldnt contain the London side when they visited in Greece on the last match day. Olympiakos are a tough team to read though. Unbeaten domestically away from home all season this is a team with experience in the form of Esteban Cambiasso and with some talent up fron in Ideye and Fourtounis. While I think Olympiakos will give this game the respect it deserves I do think that the Greek side will fancy themselves over two legs here.
Going to take both teams to score here in what should be a fascinating encounter. The draw also looks some value but with this game very tough to call I'm just going to go with both teams to score!
