Olympiacos, on the other hand, is currently at the top of the Greek Superleague and they have yet to give up a goal after having already scored seven of their own. Olympiacos enter the match vs. Tottenham coming off of a 5-0 thrashing of Volos.
In Wednesday’s other matchup, Club Brugge looks to get ahead of the competition with an early win against Galatasaray. Club Brugge finds itself in second place in the Belgian Pro League, although their record remains untarnished with four wins, two draws and no losses on the year. They head into Wednesday’s Champions League match on the heels of a 2-0 league win.
Galatasaray, who sit in fifth place in the Turkish Super Lig, have not quite had the start that they were hoping for. The team holds a record of 2-1-1 and has given up as many goals as it has scored on the young season. They are riding high off two wins in a row heading into their matchup vs. Club Brugge in Belgium.
Two games a day will be televised by TNT, while Bleacher Report (B/R) Live will have every match available. Viewers can also head over to fuboTV for live streams of all the matches.
One thing to be sure of is that this is anyone’s year in the Champions League and getting a win early on can be a huge momentum boost for any of these teams.
