West Ham United continue their Europa League campaign in the Greek capital of Athens this week as they face Olympiakos.
Olympiakos currently sit 3rd in Group A of the Europa League with one draw and one loss from their first two games of the campaign.
The Greek side began proceedings with a 2-3 defeat to Freiburg before claiming a point away in Serbia in a 2-2 draw against Bačka Topola.
The draw in Serbia was a disappointing one for an Olympiakos side that that had performed very admirably despite being reduced to ten men with twenty minutes of normal time remaining, and they were minutes away from securing a huge three points before conceding an equaliser in the 90th minute.
Nevertheless, they're still coming into this game in decent form having won three and drawn one of their last four games in all competitions so they'll fancy themselves to get a positive result here.
They're strong when playing at home in their domestic league but in Europe their form is much more shaky with Olympiakos having lost three of their last five games on home soil in this competition, something they'll be wary of being a weak spot.
Olympiakos are the clear underdogs for this game but the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium can be an intimidating place to visit on certain nights so a result is not out of the question for the Greek side.
West Ham United currently sit top of Group A with two wins from their first two games of the campaign.
The Hammers kicked off with a 3-1 win over Bačka Topola before registering a 2-1 victory over Freiburg away from home.
West Ham entered this season's competition harbouring hopes of going one step further than their semi-final appearance two seasons back and after winning the Europa Conference League last season they'll feel better equipped to deal with the intricacies of elite European competition.
David Moyes' men are coming into this game in good form overall having won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five games, but their most recent outing did end in a. crushing 4-1 loss at the hands of Aston Villa so they'll be looking to make amends for that here.
All in all the result won't concern them too much as they've performed well often enough this season to believe the weekend's performance was little more than a blip, but they'll have to quickly shake off any lingering disappointment to ensure it doesn't affect them on Thursday night.
The atmosphere will be a raucous one in Greece but The Hammers should be able to navigate their way through it based on how lesser teams have fared there in this competition.
For our Olympiakos vs. West Ham prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the away side.
