October Review

Greek Superleague

Levadeiakos - Olympiakos

Manager's Comments

Their first goal came at the 9th when Gori tripped Niasse inside the box and Milhazes scored from the spot sending the keeper the wrong way. Their 2nd goal came at the 89th minute, when Cissokho lost the ball in the centre, resulting into a great team goal scored by Chumbinho. Overall, our side played really badly having just 43% of the possession and completing just 266 passes. We had only 2 shots on target and our players had an average rating of 6.54. So yeah, we played really sh*t on this game.

Olympiakos - PAS Giannina

Manager's Comments

First chance came at the 4th minute for Giannina when Acosta passed to Giakos who let the ball pass under his feet to find Maboulou, who had a powerful shot resulting in Leali stretching to get his hands on the ball. 13 minutes in, our defence was sleeping which let Giakos find Maboulou inside the box, who with a powerful shot, sent the ball in the bar and in resulting in a 0-1 lead for Giannina. 5 minutes later, a great team play led to Maniero shooting from outside the box, but unfortunately the ball deflected and the ball hit the bar. 20 minutes in, a corner from Marin found Retsos in the 6 yard box,
who with a powerful head sent the ball in, equalising for Olympiakos. With 15 minutes remaining for the half-time whiste, a counter attack led to Tzimopoulos lobbing a pass for Fonsi, who with a poor shot, sent the ball over the bar. 12 minutes after the 2nd half began, Cambiasso found De la Bella on the edge of the box, who with a cross going through their keeper's hands, found Cardozo who headed the ball into the net. Last chance of the game, Marin's free kick resulted in Botia heading the ball into the net. Yep, all three goals where with headers...

Panaitolikos - Olympiakos

Manager's Comments

First goal came at the 14th minute, when Fortounis ran all the way until the edge of the box, crossed and Maniero scored with a nice header. 2nd goal came at the 29th minute, when Botia's clearance was deflected which found Ansarifard on a 1-on-1 with the keeper, who scored with a nice placed shot. 62 minutes in, Munoz's free kick found Tsokanis, who with a volley, sent the ball wide. 19 minutes before the game ended, Cardozo crossed after a pass from Ciano, which resulted into Fortounis scoring his 3rd goal of the season.

Greek Cup

Aiginiakos - Olympiakos

Manager's Comments

We started the match pressing and playing calmly which resulted in a 25 yard direct free kick from Marin at the 36th minute. 45 minutes in, Cissokho's cross almost found Fortounis inside the 5 yard box, but he was shoved by Giazitzoglou. Cardozo then, with a sloppy penalty, luckily scored. 10 minutes after the 2nd half started, Cardozo jumped for a header, but landed ugly and got injured. Thank god he's now okay. 75 minutes in, Romao's lob pass found Marin who had escaped 4 defenders, he ran in the box and crossed and Ansarifard scored. 2 minutes before the final whistle was blown, Retsos' clearance found Elyounoussi who lobbed the keeper.

November Review

Greek Superleague

Olympiakos - Kerkyra

Manager's Comments

Kerkyra played really well and deserved this draw. On the other way, we didn't play well. Kerkyra's goal came at the 20th minute when Doualla found Thuram inside the box who with a nice shot beat Kapino to put Kerkyra in front. 39 minutes in, Kevin Diogo tackled Fortounis which resulted in him getting a second yellow card and got sent off. We equalised 77 minutes in, when Ciano's cross found Cardozo who scored with a volley 7 yards out. 5 minutes before the game was over, Cambiasso tackled Doualla from behind which resulted in him getting sent off.

Panathinaikos - Olympiakos

Manager's Comments

The match against our biggest ever rival went to shit. All our hard work in this match was for nothing when at the last 25 minutes they scored 4 f*cking goals. We scored at the 36th minute when Fortounis dribbled a defender and immediately shot and scored from 35 yards. 65 minutes in Leto's cross found Berg who scored an easy goal. 72 minutes in, Villafanez scored from 20 yards by a free kick. 7 minutes later, Hult's cross found our defender's sleeping, which resulted into Molins scored a similar goal to Berg's earlier one.
6 minutes later, Kourbelis shot, shot got blocked and Mollins scored another goal, this time with a half-volley.

Olympiakos - Xanthi

Manager's Comments

3 minutes in, Fortounis' cross found Romao outside the box, who scored a beautiful goal. 10 minutes later, Romao found Dominguez, who found Karim, who with a backheel found Dominguez again which resulted in a great team goal. Nothing important happened until the 80th minute, when Sylla with a weak pass tried to find the keeper, but Ansarifard intercepted it and scored from a 1-on-1.

Champions League

Red Bull Salzburg - Olympiakos

Manager's Comments

This match was a rollercoaster of emotions. 14 minutes in, Figueiras found Seba inside the box, who got hit by Radosevic which resulted in a penalty. Fortounis then converted from the spot and got us in front. 5 minutes later, a counter attack led by Rzatkowski who found the chance to pass to Laimer who scored from inside the box. Dygruber scored 2 goals in 2 minutes. 1st one came when Liverpool loanee Andre Wisdom crossed, found Dygruber who scored a volley inside the 5 yard box. 1 minute later, Dygruber scored another, when he was left alone by the defenders, which resulted in another goal. 70 minutes in, we had a glimer of hope when Fortounis scored after a cross from Elyounoussi. 9 minutes later, Martins kept the dream alive when he scored a powerfull header 10 yards out. 84th minute, we were left hardbroken when Rzatkowski scored after a cross got deflected. I encouraged my players though and told them to put their body on the line in order to score. That payed off when even though the Red Bull players were already celebrating, Figueiras volleyed a shot and made us all cheer and scream from happiness.

Leicester - Olympiakos

Manager's Comments

We really showed that we wanted the win and that payed off. First goal came 10 minutes in, when Figueiras passed to Manthatis who crossed immediately and found Karim who scored. Leicester's best chance till then was when Mahrez beautifully passed the ball to Vitor Bueno whose shot went over the bar. Huth held the ball too long, which allowed Manthatis to steal the ball and pass it to Martins, who shot and the ball hit the post. An error from Romao allowed Musa to run all the way down to our edge from the box and with a beautiful cross found Mahrez who scored with a tap-in. Leicester missed a sitter couple of minutes later, when Vardy crossed but Slimani missed an open goal. 20 minutes later, Karim dribbled Simpson, but he streched his leg much too wide which got him sent off. 80 minutes in, Huth tackled Karim inside the box and a penalty was given. Fortounis converted calmly from the spot and got us a win. After the final whistle was blown, it was official that we qualified to the next round even though we have a chance to redeem ourselves against Napoli at home.
Bloody hell, 4-4 against Salzburg! Very good result against Leicester as well. League wise very poor, your fans won't be happy about the Panathinaikos result especially!

Those 2 matches were freaking nice :D About the league though, I ain't happy either and believe me, the players know that :P
From being 3-1 down, to drawing 4-4.... a truly memorable Champions League fixture!

Sebá leaves Olympiakos in shock transfer

24 year-old Olympiakos' winger Seba will join Besiktas JK on a shock transfer for a reported fee of 2.2m Euros after demanding a transfer move from Olympiakos manager Alex Vergos due to him not getting enough first team chances. Olympiakos fans aren't happy about this and may lead to low attendance on a home game or two in order to show that they aren't happy.

P.S. Sorry for not updating this story for a couple of months. I had to take a break from this save because I wasn't feeling like playing on this save and updating the story. Now no need to worry cause it's back. <3
Well... about time! ;)

Champions League

Olympiakos - Napoli

Manager's Comments

"This month turned out with mixed results. First of all, in the Greek SL we had a mixed month. We drew with Panionios, beat Atromitos and then drew again with PAOK. We could have won all those matches but we didn't perform well enough. As of now, we are training new tactics. Secondly, the Greek Cup saw us qualify from our group with our last match resulting in a win against Panelefsiniakos (what a name) and winning in the 1st leg of the 3rd round against Kerkyra. Lastly, Our CL match this month was horrible. Napoli destroyed us 2-5 inside our home. We played very bad. We were lucky that we scored 2 goals. Overall, the month was mixed and I really hope January will bring us both good results and good transfers.
Hopefully you can turn things around in the League! Very poor, but enough time to bring that trophy home.
Mixed results indeed. Progress in the cup competition is good, though, and lifting that would certainly be a nice way to celebrate the season.

Olympiakos - Atromitos (Qtr Final 1st leg)

Manager's Comments

"In the Greek SL we had good results picking up 5 wins in 5 games moving us from 3rd to 1st with a game less. My only concern was the match against AEK which resulted in 1-0. Even though we won, we only had 2 shots on target of our 11. Possession wise, we were decent with 51% possession. Now, in the Greek Cup we qualified in the Qtr final when a draw against Kerkyra was enough to see us through. We were drawn against Atromitos with the 1st leg at home. As you can see we lost. We did play a rotated side though with 18 year old Dimitris Nikolaou making his professional debut for Olympiakos. He played very good getting a 7.4 rating (highest in the team). Now we have to turn things around in the 2nd leg. Overall, this was a good month we had with a record of 5 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss.I'm happy."
