The BUR vs OLY match preview –
European football action returns as English Premier League side Burnley play hosts to Olympiacos in the second leg tie of the UEFA Europa League.
Burnley are going through a difficult time with their form. The team are yet to win a game in the Premier League, and if they don’t turn up in the upcoming game, the European dream is all set to be over as well. It is almost contrasting to the way the team performed last year when they defied expectations. They still have the same group of players, and manager Sean Dyche needs to do something drastic to make sure this ship doesn’t sink.
Meanwhile, Greek side Olympiacos are flying. They have been dominating the Greek league for many years now. They did lose their own domestic league title to AEK Athens last year, and this year is expected to be the one where the team bounces back. They employ a fast-paced attacking brand of football where the teams. Olympiacos has already won the home leg of this tie by 3-1, and only need to avoid 2-0 defeat to progress further than the playoffs and enter the Round of 64.
