Burnley v Olympiakos Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

Sean Dyche's Clarets must take risks in this Europa League second leg but our tipster expects Pedro Martins' Thrylos to finish the job on the break

Burnley face Olympiakos at Turf Moor for the second leg of their Europa League play-off clash.

The Greek outfit are as short as 1/7 (1.14) to qualify for the Group Stage after winning the first leg 3-1, while Burnley are outsiders at 4/1 (5.0) to overturn the deficit.

Latest odds

Burnley have been victorious on seven of the eight occasions Turf Moor has hosted competitive European football and the East Lancashire outfit are 7/5 (2.4) to record a victory inside 90 minutes.

The visitors, who haven’t failed to win a Europa League qualifying match since 2010, are 7/4 (2.75) to uphold that record.

A draw would see Thrylos comfortably progress and can be backed at 11/5 (3.2).

Team News

For Burnley, Johann Berg Gudmundsson is sidelined with a muscle injury, whilst new centre-back Ben Gibson was sent off in the first leg and so is suspended. Nick Pope and Steven Defour are long-term absentees.

Olympiakos, meanwhile, could make one or two changes from the side that beat Levadiakos 1-0 in the Greek Super League.

Centre-back Roderick Miranda could come in but wide man Lazaros Christodoulopoulos will surely keep his place after completing a man-of-the-match performance with a fine free-kick.

Thrylos to break?

Pedro Martins’ troops might no longer have home advantage, but it seems plausible that their opponents’ desperation to bridge the two-goal deficit could disrupt their structure and hand the visitors opportunities to counter-attack.

Olympiakos to win with the -1 handicap at 5/1 (6.0) – which will land if they are victorious in the 90 minutes by a margin of more than one goal – could prove worth a punt.

Preview and predictions

Our best bet though is the 11/4 (3.75) on an Olympiakos win with over 1.5 goals scored, a shot which looks great value considering Burnley have shipped 10 in their last three and will be forced to throw caution to the wind.
