Olympiakos News and Form
Olympiakos hold a W3 L1 record against Russian teams. They started in this season’s second qualifying round and from their four games played, have not conceded a goal. You can’t argue with that. Their domestic league doesn’t start until later in the month so they are missing a bit of match sharpness compared to other teams in the qualifiers Still, they took a 4-0 aggregate win over Viktoria Plzen to start with before landing a 3-0 success against Basaksehir.
Six of their seven European goals this season have come on home soil. Last season they were in the Europa League, having started in the third qualifying round. They make it to the round of 32 where they were stopped by Dynamo Kyiv. Olympiakos are undefeated in their last ten European home games now and have won seven of their last eight two-legged European ties.

FK Krasnodar News and Form
Krasnodar have only made one previous visit to Greece and that ended in a -0 draw at PAOK back in 2015. Because the Russian top-flight started in the middle of last month, Krasnodar does have that advantage of having had extra playing time, so they should be fitter. Their record hits season across all competitions is W5 D1 L2. They started their Champions League qualification campaign in the last round and they pulled off a shock as well.
They had lost 1-0 at home against Porto in the first leg, but then out of nowhere produced a stunning 3-2 road win in the second leg, going 3-0 up in just over half an hour of that game. Despite Porto pushing back, Krasnodar held on to get their away goal win in the tie. This is their first run at the UEFA Champions League, having competed in the Europa League qualifiers in each of the five previous seasons. Last season Krasnodar did make it to the round of sixteen in the Europa League. The Russians are D1 L4 in their last five away games in Europe.
