Another football tip for today as Olympiakos will host Rijeka. The home side is favourite to win this match but this should be a close game. I will bet on under 9,5 corners that seems to be the best bet for this game.
I'm expecting the ball possession to be very balanced (something like 52-48 is very possible) and I'm not expecting total domination from the home side. It's true that they will have the home advantage and that they will play against a Rijeka in troubles (2 losses in a row and they will miss players) but they will not dominate this game. Rijeka is not a team that play defensive minded and this will be a similiar match to the one they have played against Salzburg on the road. Ball possession should be balanced and this should be a match without a lot of big chances to score.
In fact, Rijeka played four european matches this season: they have collected 11 corners at home against TNS (that was obvious as they were clearly the better team and they had 60% of ball possession) but only 5 in the 2nd leg away from home. Against Salzburg, they collected only a corner away from home and five at home.
Olympiakos, on the other hand, played only two european matches: they collected 3 corners away from home against Partizan and only 2 in the 2nd round. Olympiakos should have the best chances to score but Rijeka have a good defense despite losing last two matches. This will be a tough game for both.
Both are not winning a lot of corners and I think that this will be not an high tempo match. Both will focus to not concede and I'm not expecting a lot of shots on target. I think that, considering how these two teams are playing, we will see less than 10 corners in this match.
