UEFA Europa Conference League | Olympiacos F.C. VS Aston Villa FC; Friday, 10 May at 03:00 GMT +8

Olympiakos and Aston Villa face off in the Europa Conference League quarter-final first leg, with Aston Villa looking to turn the tie around at Stadio Georgios Karaiskáki. Olympiakos, who suffered a shock 4:1 home reversal against Maccabi Haifa in the round of sixteen, are not impenetrable at home. They have lost two of their last six home matches, including a 3:1 defeat against Panathinaikos. Aston Villa, on the road, have a good record this season but have suffered from recent injuries. Both teams lack defensive solidity and have strong attacking qualities, making another high-scoring contest likely on Thursday. The odds are in favor of BTTS, with over 2.5 goals scored in an intriguing match.

José Luis Mendilibar is expected to maintain his current team after a successful weekend at home, with Sotiris Alexandropoulos remaining the only injury absentee.

Emery’s team, the Villains, is unable to call on several players for Thursday’s second leg in Greece, including Youri Tielemans, Emi Martínez, Jacob Ramsey, Emiliano Buendía, Tyrone Mings, and Boubacar Kamara.

Predicted lineups:

Olympiacos FC

Goalkeeper: Konstantinos Tzolakis
Defenders: Francisco Ortega, David Carmo, Rodinei, Panagiotis Retsos
