JUVE AIM TO PICK UP THE PACE
Juventus will be looking to get win number one in this season's UEFA Champions League when they host Olympiacos at the Allianz Stadium for their first home match in the competition.
The Bianconeri have been in stunning form domestically, winning all of their games and will hope that they can take this impressive form into Europe.
In contrast, Olympiacos have had a stop-start season thus far, winning two matches, whilst drawing twice and losing once. Their most recent exploits saw them drop a 2-0 lead over rivals AEK Athens to lose the game 3-2. The result leaves them in fourth place in the standings, and five points behind leaders AEK.
On Matchday One, Olympiacos lost to Sporting Lisbon 3-2 at home, having gone three goals down inside the first-half. A late rally from the team saw them pull two goals back in the 89th and 93rd minutes, but it wasn’t enough for them to avoid defeat.
OPPOSITION FOCUS: OLYMPIACOS
Olympiacos replaced their manager on Monday with former favourite, Takis Lemonis, who will begin his fourth spell at the club against Juventus.
The Greeks' key-man is undoubtedly their number 10, Marko Marin. The 28-year-old midfielder first burst onto the scene 10 years ago with Borussia Monchengladbach, and quickly built a promising reputation for himself. However, after drifting between homes with spells at Chelsea, Sevilla and Fiorentina, the playmaker seems to have finally settled at Olympiacos.
