Mitchell’s great European night guide for Europa League continuation Olympiakos



Mitchell takes charge of Olympiakos and faces a difficult task of qualifying for the Europa League. However, the Spanish manager is used to difficult tasks and delivered big European nights in his first stint.

Olympiacos enter a new day with Carlos Corberan a thing of the past and Mitchell taking the technical lead for the Reds and Whites. The 59-year-old Spanish coach has a difficult task ahead of him. He needs to “tie” the team in a short time and reverse the situation in Greece and in Europe.

In the Europa League groups, Olympiakos started the worst. Lost 2-1 to Nantes in France and lost 3-0 to Freiburg in Karaiskakis. The Red-Whites are bottom with zero points and four games left.

The next two games against Karabagh in Karaiskakis (October 6, 10 p.m.) and in Azerbaijan (October 13, 7:45 p.m.) will be decisive for the European course of the red-whites. We remind you that the first goes to the round of 16, the second to the playoffs for the round of 16, while the third is relegated to the playoffs for the round of 16 of the Conference League.

However, Mitchell has the experience of Europe. He managed to score important results in his first season at Olympiakos, while in 2013/14 he guided the Red-Whites to the last 16 of the Champions League, where he faced Manchester United.

The great European run 13/14

Mitchell’s first European games for the Red-Whites were in the Europa League round of 16, when he was also eliminated by Levante in the 2012/13 season. These were also among his first games for the red and white. The big march naturally took place in the following racing year.

Olympiacos were drawn in a difficult group with Paris, Benfica and Anderlecht. However, the red and white could take second place. They were defeated by the Parisians in both games, but the Piraeus went unbeaten in all others. Mitchell’s side had beaten Anderlecht 3-0 in Belgium, with Roberto overpowering and Mitroglou scoring a hat-trick.

This was followed by a 1-1 draw at Da Luz and a 1-0 win over Benfica at Karaiskakis, with Roberto again being the Red and White hero and Manolas scoring with a header. Qualification was sealed with a 3:1 home win against Anderlecht.

On February 25, 2014 Olympiacos had a great win against Manchester United by Rooney, Van Persie, Evra, Ferdinand and many others. Chori Dominguez had scored the first, Joel Campbell making it 2-0. The second leg was a non-match as the Red Devils turned the tide against them at Old Trafford.

Third place in a difficult group before the end

In the 2014/2015 season, Olympiacos had an even more difficult draw in the Champions League groups. The red-whites were in the same group as Atletico, Juventus and Malmo. Mitchell used Karaiskakis as his team finished 3rd and qualified for the Europa League.

At this stage of the groups, Olympiakos had achieved three big results in Faliro. They beat Atletico Madrid 3-2 while also beating Juventus 1-0. In the final game of the process, they beat Malmo 4-2 to confirm third place.

He could have qualified but was defeated in all away games, finishing -1 against Juventus and -4 against Atlético. In the Europa League round of 16 against Dnipro, Mitchell was a thing of the past and the red-whites were led by Vitor Pereira.

Europa League

With Vaiannidis, Sporar and Aitor in Israel, Panathinaikos for Maccabi Haifa




Panathinaikos will face Maccabi Haifa on Thursday (October 5th) on the second matchday of the Europa League in Israel and Ivan Jovanovic sent Vaiannidis, Aitor, Sporar and the “little ones” Bilal, Sidera, Prodromitis to see who can help.

Panathinaikos traveled to Israel on Tuesday (March 10th) at noon, where they will play against Maccabi Haifa in the second round of the Europa League on Thursday (May 10th, 10:00 p.m., COSMOTE SPORT 6 HD and live on Sportish).

The special thing about the green team, the “El. Venizelos” has to do with the fact that Ivan Jovanovic took with him several footballers who are not sure whether they will play, but also some small ones from the B list that he was supposed to replace anyway, some gaps.

The Panathinaikos team travels to Israel

Specifically, Vagiannidis, Aitor and Sporar traveled normally with the Panathinaikos team. The first of them has fully recovered from his injury from the game against Ioannina and will be available to the Serbian coach for the game in Israel.

Aitor and Sporar have increased their training pace in recent days, but their presence is still not a given. Jovanovic simply wants to exploit all possibilities.

From there, the two young stoppers Sideras-Prodromitis are on a mission to fill the gaps left in the defense following the injuries to Magnuson and Palmer-Brown, who remained in Athens.

The deployment was also followed by Bilal, who is on the B list, as if Sporar is unable to keep up, and since Geremegev is not on the European list, he will most likely be on the bench.

Finally, Chokai, Zeka and Geremegev, who were not on the list but the 60-year-old coach wanted to be next to the team, also traveled to Israel.

After all, Panathinaikos will stay in Israel for four days as it is expected to return on Friday (6/10), followed by a league game on Sunday (8/10) against Atromitos. That’s why Jovanovic wanted every available footballer with him.

Europa League

With Ese and Retso against Backa Topola, Olympiacos, difficult for Freire




Santiago Ese and Panagiotis Retsos were available to Diego Martinez for the game against Batska Topola, while Nicolas Freira is unlikely to be present.

THE Diego Martínez has Olympiakos’ decisive game against Batska Topola on Thursday (October 5th, 7:45 p.m., COSMOTE SPORT 4HD, LIVE from Sportish) in the second round of the group stage of the Europa League in its sights. And it is crucial in the sense that with a win the “Red and Whites” take an important step towards their advancement in European competitions and beyond January, be it in the Europa League or the Conference League.

Should Olympiacos get the three points in Serbia, they will move into third place in their group and keep their hopes of second place alive. The Spanish coach reserved Ese and Retso for the game against PAS Ioannina, who are available and will logically return to the Piraeus team. The Argentine midfielder will wear a protective mask and the Greek central defender appears to have overcome adductor problems.

Retsos, along with Doi, will form Olympiakos’ two stoppers as the latest information suggests that Freire has not overcome the muscle injury that has plagued him since the match against PAS Ioannina and led to his substitution at half-time of the game. So Martinez will have Porosos as an alternative solution for central defense.

The Olympiakos players will train in Renti on Wednesday (October 4th) at 11:45 a.m. and at noon the team will “fly” to Serbia. Diego Martinez’s press conference at the TSC Arena is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. and the red and white players will be represented by Sotiris Alexandropoulos.
