Olympiakos will be looking progress in the UEFA Europa League as they host Slovan Bratislava in the first leg of their third round qualifier. The Greeks will be banking on their experience in European competition to give them the edge on Thursday.

Olympiakos fell to the Europa League after losing 4-1 on aggregate to Maccabi Haifa in the second round of the Champions League. They were disappointing in both legs of the tie, playing out a 1-1 draw in the first meeting before suffering a 4-0 defeat at home.

Although the Greek Super League is yet to kick off, Olympiakos have struggled to find their best form in preseason and the early stages of European competition. Pedro Martins’ men head into Thursday’s clash with just one win from their last eight matches across all competitions.

A solid home record is usually vital to Olympiakos’ campaign and they will be keen to quickly put the defeat to Maccabi Haifa behind them. Having claimed a 1-0 friendly win over Dutch side AZ Alkmaar in the previous fixture in front of their fans, they will be looking to channel a similar performance on Thursday.

Slovan Bratislava will be disappointed not to have progressed in the Champions League after winning the first leg of their tie with Ferencvaros. They won 2-1 in the first leg in Hungary but suffered a humiliating 4-1 home defeat in the return fixture.

One positive for Slovan Bratislava is that the Slovakian league is already three weeks old and they have made a fine start to their campaign, claiming two wins already. They warmed up for the trip to Olympiakos with a come from behind 4-2 victory over Zemplin Michalovce last Saturday.

Slovan Bratislava have also looked solid on their recent travels with just one defeat from their last four away matches across all competitions.
