The Greek Champions enter the battle for a group stage slot next season hoping to replicate and do better than their past achievements in European football.
Back in September 1959, Olympiacos made their debut in a game against Milan at the Karaiskakis Stadium for the 1959–60 European Cup, being the first Greek team to compete in a European competition.
In fact, Olympiacos was also the first Greek club to advance to the next round of any European competition, eliminating Zagłębie Sosnowiec for the 1963–64 European Cup Winners’ Cup.
To have a chance of doing better than this, getting something in this first leg tie is highly crucial.
