Olympiacos’ fate is sealed after failing to win any of the previous five games in Group D. The Greek side have only managed a point following the 0-0 draw against Barcelona at the Stadio Georgios Karaiskakis in late October. While a win here would be inconsequential for the home side, it would deal a big blow to Juventus’ title hopes if Sporting CP managed a draw at the Camp Nou. Juventus reached last season’s finals but lost against Real Madrid in Cardiff. The Greek Super League defending champions head into this game already eliminated as they sit fourth in group D.
Serie A and Coppa Italia holders need a win in this game to guarantee their qualification. A draw in this match and Juventus would hope that Sporting CP loses or draw in the other group against Barcelona to qualify. Gonzalo Higuain was the hero over the weekend as he scored the match-winning goal against his former side Napoli in the Serie A. Juventus will be looking to continue that winning form here as they have drawn their last two UEFA Champions League ties.
