West Ham vs Olympiacos odds
*Odds correct as of 14:10 on November 05
The Hammers’ 17-game unbeaten run in Europe finally came to an end last time out against Olympiacos, as they lost an away game in the group stages of European competition for the very first time. David Moyes’ side found themselves 2-0 down just before the break in Greece and left it too little too late with Lucas Paqueta’s 87th minute strike just a consolation.
The 2-1 win over West Ham on MD3, ended a run of 11 winless games in the competition for the Greek side (D3 L8), as they made Group A interesting. They now site just two points behind the Hammers and Freiburg, who top the table on six points and a win here would see them record back-to-back victories in the competition for the first time since September 2021.
