Freiburg-Olympiakos: Great challenge against the backdrop of qualification!


He measures his strength in Germany Olympic! His team Diego Martinez tested at its headquarters Freiburg (7:45 p.m., Cosmote Sports, bwinSPORT FM, and is looking for the result that, in essence, is expected to ensure his European continuation.

Because based on logic, since o Olympic get at least a draw, they will be at +4 from Backa Topola who will hardly manage to get anything against West Ham and with one match remaining, they will have secured the knockouts of the Europa Conference League. Of course, in the event of victory, Olympic he will also enter the bay of the second place and will wait for the last competitive victory of West Ham or a draw with the Germans and a victory of his own to find himself in the playoffs of the Europa League. Of course, the possible tie with her will also play a role Freiburg, but if the Piraeus win by two or more goals, then they will excel! Otherwise, we will go with the goal difference, which at the moment is very large (OSFP at -1, the Germans at +7).

THE Olympic it comes from the 3-1 victory over Panaitolikos in the championship, in a match that he did not want with his performance but had the mitigation of the stoppage and several problems, mainly in defense. THE Fortune led again and continues to be in very good condition, while o El Kaabi he’s back in goals and that’s a big plus. Today, the red and whites have a challenge in front of them, since they face a team against which they have three consecutive matches without a win (2 defeats and 1 draw), although in the game of the first matchday they showed that they have it… but they paid enough their mistakes and were defeated 3-2.

THE Diego Martinez he seems to have doubts about the formation he should use, since he is playing with the possibility of lining up his team with a trio of stoppers. Several players are sure of the starting line-up, but there are also question marks in duos like Ese – Alexandropoulos and Masouras – Pontense. If there is a trio in defense, Ibora will flank the stoppers Retso, Doi, with Rodiney and Ortega on the flanks. Kamara with Ese or Alexandropoulos in the axis, Fortounis in a free role and Masoura (or Pontense), El Kaabi in the attack. In the event that the 4-3-3 remains, then Ibora will move to the side of Kamara and the trio in midfield will be completed by Ese or Alexandropoulos. Fortunis at one end, Masouras or Pontense and El Kaabi at the other.

Data except for the “red and white” are the injured Poroso, Freire, Scarpaas well as Richards, Brunich, Biancone and Brusai who are not on the European list.

THE Freiburg comes from her side from the 1-1 at home with Darmstadt, while in total it counts four consecutive matches without a win and has not managed to get close to the places that give a European ticket. She has a big problem with suspensions and concedes goals with characteristic ease, while she aggressively creates phases and if she finds a rhythm, she can impose herself on her opponent. It has 9 points in the group and with a win or a draw it locks the qualification to the next phase and will play the last matchday in London in its first round against West Ham.

“Olympiacos is a very good team. With a very correct offensive orientation on the field and with players who have many good individual characteristics. They played very well tactically against West Ham, who they already beat. It will be a very difficult game for us, but we are looking forward to it.”he emphasized at the press conference Christian Streich.
