looking back at that 0-0. brutal. we had 0 shots on target. they had 6.

we also had a stronger backline in stafylidis sokratis manolas and torosidis.

we're hurting with injuries there's no room for error here and not starting koulouris and startin bakasetas on the wing again is what I fear. 

I really hope we see this

         koulouris

donis fortounis masouras

     zeca samaris/kourbelis

koutris siovas sokratis bakakis

       vlacho

if stafylidis (lb) retsos (rb) lazaros (rw) mitroglou (st) kpaps (cb) manolas (cb) were available I'd start them in place of what we got

also won't happen but fetfa (rw/lw) and holebas (lb) but yeah i'll keep that to fifa lol

What's the problem with u and fckin lazaros he sucks.

Mitroglou is gonna be a big miss. Biggest ones in my opinion will be Retsos at a 3 CB scheme and Manolas.

I think we can scrap a 0-0 there.

Lazaros was really good last season at AEK and the next with Oly until he got injured. He can take on defender and shoot. For depth purposes Donis, Masouras, Fetfa, and Lazaros I think would be our top 4 and rotate based on form. 

Laz has great long FK's, can take on defenders, and can shoot on target. He's way better then Pelkas or Bakasetas wide. (Which is what we've done past 10 games or so). so yes Lazaros being out is a loss.

Lazaros was good for 2 months with Aek and for the qualifiers of the Europa League with Olympiakos.

He is already 33 and there is no point to field a 33 year old. We have promising players like Lamprou and Limnios.

Donis will play upfront. Would have been good to have him on the wing and Koulouris up front but it is what it is.

Surely we won’t see Bakasetas on the field at any time after he couldn’t do jack against Lichtenstein in his 20th cap. It was embarrassing at times

Thinking about it having Donis play as a striker is probably the smart move, regardless of whether Mitro was fit or not. He'll have no defensive responsibilities and will be able to hit the Bosnian's center backs directly. His pace will be a big threat on the break.

With that in mind it's hard to see who else starts on the other wing(assuming Masouras is a lock) apart from Bakesetas. Unless he throws Mavrias in, or obviously Donis could play on the wing with Kolouris leading the line.

Kpaps would never start a cb over Manolas Sokratis and siovas. And if he did, there’s a big problem.

Apparently these are the 3 scenarios the coach is thinking of playing

4-3-3 Αναφορικά με τα πλάνα ενδεκάδας, μονάχα εκτιμήσεις μπορούν να γίνουν. Ο Βλαχοδήμος αναμένεται να κρατήσει τη θέση στο τέρμα, με τον Σιόβα να είναι ο ένας σέντερ μπακ και ο Παπασταθόπουλος ο άλλος, εφόσον είναι σε θέση να αγωνιστεί. Οι Κούτρης και Μπακάκης στα άκρα, με τους Σάμαρη, Ζέκα και Κουρμπέλη στην τριάδα μπροστά, οι Φορτούνης και Μασούρας ως εσωτερικοί μέσοι και ο Δώνης πιο μπροστά 

3-5-2 στην άμυνα θα δούμε Σιόβα, Παπασταθόπουλο και Κουρμπέλη, Κούτρη και Μπακάκη στις πτέρυγες, Σάμαρη, Ζέκα και Φορτούνη στα χαφ και Δώνη με Μασούρα μπροστά. Αν ο Αναστασιάδης πάει σε 3-4-2-1, θα δούμε Σιόβα, Παπασταθόπουλο και Ρισβάνη στην άμυνα, τους Κούτρη και Μπακάκη να παίζουν όλη την πλευρά, τους Ζέκα, Σάμαρη και Κουρμπέλη στον άξονα και τους Φορτούνη, Μασούρα πίσω από τον Δώνη. Φυσικά, θέση μπροστά διεκδικεί και ο Κουλούρης.

4-2-3-1Τέλος, αν δεν αγωνιστεί ο "Πάπα", τότε τα πράγματα αλλάζουν, αφού ίσως παραμείνει το  όπως και στο ματς με το Λιχτενστάιν, με τον Ρισβάνη ή τον Κουρμπέλη δίπλα στον Σιόβα, τους Κούτρη και Μπακάκη στα άκρα, τους Ζέκα και Σάμαρη στον άξονα, τον Μασούρα στη μια πλευρά, παίζεται η θέση για την άλλη και τον Φορτούνη πίσω από τον Δώνη ή τον Κουλούρη. Στην διάθεση του Αναστασιάδη είναι και ο Ντουρμισάι.

I think Mitroglou is a misfit in this scheme. Not a big loss. He's lazy and his play is uninspired. We don't have someone in the midfield who can distribute the ball well enough to have a poacher in the lineup.

Mitro has become obsolete with our sub par midfield.. He would be good if we had a great midfielder but in our current state his laziness and lack of speed I think does more bad then good to our team especially when we are called to play a match where we need to defend and try to catch teams on the counter.. I think our guys rely to much when Mitro is in the game and they try to force the ball to him and other teams know this so maybe a change with Kolouris and some speedy wingers we can be more effective..

Yup. Even if we had Pjanic on our side, Mitroglou's level of effort or lack there of is pretty apparent. He does not run, he does not fight for the ball. He wants the ball at his feet and if it's 3 feet away from him he gives up. Frustrating.

I'm not to hopeful in this game. I think we need to play it tight and go for the 0-0.

 

If they score first I can't see us getting one back.

      UEFA Nations League format confirmed
      UEFA has confirmed the final competition rules and regulations for the UEFA Nations League, less than a year before the first match is due to be played on 6 September 2018. The new logo for the tournament was also unveiled following Wednesday's UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Nyon.
      All you need to know about the UEFA Nations League
      2018/19 UEFA Nations League: how it works
      The UEFA Nations League is a new competition that aims to ensure the continued success of national team football by replacing most friendlies with competitive matches and by allowing all nations to play against equally ranked teams.
      All 55 UEFA associations enter.
      The teams are split into four leagues, A–B–C–D, according to their position in the UEFA National Team Coefficient Rankings following the end of the European Qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup (as per 11 October 2017; play-off results will not be included).
      League A will consist of the 12 top-ranked teams. The next 12 teams will be in League B, the next 15 in League C and the remaining 16 in League D.
      Leagues A and B will each comprise four groups of three teams.
      League C will contain one group of three teams and three groups of four sides; League D will be formed by four groups of four teams.
      All draw procedures to be confirmed. Matches to be played home and away between September and November 2018 (teams will play four or six games depending on the size of their group).
      The four group winners of League A will qualify for the UEFA Nations League Finals, to be held in June 2019, with two semi-finals, a third-place match and the final. One host country will be appointed by the UEFA Executive Committee in December 2018 from among the finalist teams.
      The group winners in Leagues B, C and D will gain promotion and those who finish bottom of the groups in Leagues A, B and C will be relegated.
      National teams will thus either be competing to become UEFA Nations League winners, or be fighting for promotion and to avoid relegation.
      The League Phase Draw for the UEFA Nations League will take place at the SwissTech Convention Centre in Lausanne on 24 January 2018, when the new UEFA Nations League trophy will also be unveiled.
      Qualifying for UEFA EURO 2020
      Qualifying for UEFA EURO 2020 remains largely the same (with 24 finalists in all), although the European Qualifiers will now begin in the March after a major tournament instead of immediately in September (i.e. March 2019 in this case). No team will gain auomatic qualification as hosts (there are 13 host nations in all).
      Qualifying group stage (20 teams qualify)
      The teams will be split into ten groups of five or six, and the top two from each group will qualify for the final tournament, determining the first 20 places.
      Play-offs (4 teams qualify) 
      The last four EURO places will be won through the European Qualifiers play-offs, which will be contested by the 16 UEFA Nations League group winners (i.e. the four group winners in each of the four divisions).
      Each league will have a path of its own and each path will feature two single-leg semi-finals and one single-leg final.  The winner of each path will win a ticket to UEFA EURO 2020.
      If a UEFA Nations League group winner has already qualified via the European Qualifiers, then their spot will go to the next best-ranked team in their league. If a league does not have four teams to compete, the remaining slots are allocated to teams from another league, according to the overall UEFA Nations League rankings.

      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι του Ολυμπιακού στα προκριματικά
       

       
      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι στον τρίτο προκριματικό είναι οι εξής με τα τωρινά δεδομένα: Χάποελ Μπερ Σεβά (Ισραήλ), Αστάνα (Καζακστάν), Παρτιζάν (Σερβία), Ριέκα (Κροατία), Ρόζενμποργκ (Νορβηγία), Σλάβια Πράγας (Τσεχία), Χαφναρφιόρντουρ (Ισλανδία), Βιτορούλ (Ρουμανία), Ζίλινα (Σλοβακία), Ζαλγκίρις (Λιθουανία) 

      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι στα play offs είναι οι εξής με τα τωρινά δεδομένα: ΑΠΟΕΛ (Κύπρος), Μάλμε (Σουηδία), Μπάτε Μπορίσοφ (Λευκορωσία), Μάριμπορ (Σλοβενία), Καραμπάχ (Αζερμπαϊτζάν). 

      Ο Ολυμπιακός φέτος (όπως και πέρυσι) θα έχει την υψηλότερη βαθμολογία σε αυτούς τους δύο προκριματικούς, καθώς έχει συγκεντρώσει την υψηλότερη βαθμολογία (64.580) την τελευταία πενταετία, ενώ δεύτερη (και αρκετά πίσω του) είναι η Σέλτικ με 42.785 βαθμούς.
