Match Preview


Sean Dyche Burnley

Burnley haven't had the best start to their 2018-19 Premier League campaign, earning just one point out of a possible nine and they will be hoping a win at Turf Moor will boost morale as well as see them advance. 

Despite losing the first leg 3-1 to the Greek side, Clarets manager Sean Dyche remains confident in his team and believes they will be able to continue into the group stage of the Europa League.

"They'll be favourites, of course, after the scoreline over there," Dyche told reporters ahead of Thursday's game. "But we've been productive before when the challenge is against us, so that is what we are looking to do."

Burnley's loss in the first leg was their first defeat of this Europa League qualifying campaign, but it was a poor performance, one in which they only had one shot on target - Chris Wood’s first-half penalty. 

However, they can take some solace from the fact that Olympiakos have lost 12 of their last 13 away games against English teams in European competition and have never kept a clean sheet away from home against Premier League sides.
