Olympiacos Vs FK Neftchi predictions ahead of UEFA Champions League second-round qualifiers fixture tonight. Fourth-sixth time Greek champions start-off with their first competitive game as they welcome Neftchi Baku to the Karaiskakis Stadium on Wednesday night.
Neftchi became the first Azeri team to advance to the group stage of any UEFA competition, picking uo three points in six Europa League matches- drawing with Partizan Belgrade and shockingly holding Inter Milan at San Siro. Azeri outsiders Neftchi Baku have never made it to the Champions League in their club history.
The Greek side will host the first leg of this tie and coming from a good run in their pre-season friendly matches, they will hope for a good start. A 1-1 draw against FK UFA, 2 wins against FC Krasnodar and Wolfsberger AC and having only lost to Red Bull Salzburg.

On the other hand, the visitors are going into this game with an 11 match un-beaten run since April. They booked their slot into at this stage after a 2-1 home and away win over Dinamo Tbilisi of Georgia. Head coach Samir Abbasov will hope the duo of Namik Alaskarov and the skipper Emin Mahmudov can continue their brilliant, as his team seek to upset the odds by taking a huge win back to Baku this evening.
The Azerbaijan Premier league winners look the “underdogs” in this fixture in bare-eyes but basing on statistics, they are going to breach the odds and win it all. Azeri outsiders FK Neftchi had previously registered a 2-1 victory over Russian giants Spartak Moscow, so they are in fine form ahead of this fixture.
