Olympiakos must win at home against Malmo to have any chance of advancing to the knockout stages of the Champions League, but with third place going to the Europa League if Malmo were to somehow win in Greece they would leapfrog Olympiakos and qualify for the Europa League. Tough game here for both though. Olympiakos are expected to win and its supposed to be an easy victory for the greeks however as Malmo proved in the first game between the side they are no pushovers. Malmo won convincingly in Sweden 2-0 and will look for a simmilar effort tomorrow in Greece where the key man will be top scorer Rosenberg who has returned home and been exceptional since doing so.
For Olympiakos they have a couple of top class players with Kasami, Dominguez and Mtroglu at the head of the line alongside dutch international Affellay. I think having beaten Athletico Madrid and Juventus here at home it would be shortsighted of us to think that Olympiakos will not win tomorrow night. Backing against the handicap is tough here as Malmo dont conceded all that many in general although they have struggled at this level. I am going to take Olympiakos -1, I think the home advantage and their extra strength in depth will prevail in the end.
