The Greek side are back in the Champions League after winning the Greek Super League last season. Olympiakos have never gone beyond the quarter-finals in the Champions League but have made the last sixteen on five separate occasions, with just the one last eight appearance. Manager Leonardo Jardim will have raised expectations by winning the Super League last year and will view progress from the group stages as a minimum requirement.

Olympiakos have won their domestic Greek Super League consistently over the years and are a major force in Greek football. They still have some way to go to match the other top European teams but can boast a mixture of home grown players and a sprinkling of foreign talent, with Marko Pantelic a key man up front.
