It is official. Niko Kovac is no longer coach at Bayern Munich. Anyone who had bet before the season that Bayern would be in the new season, the first club that dismisses his coach, who could have earned a lot of money. The instructor was basically never really stuck in the saddle.
Bayern vs Olympiakos Piraeus Betting Predictions and Odds
Anyone who has Kalle Rummenigge at Säbener Straße will usually have no future with the record champions. The question is: how will Bayern continue? First, Hansi Flick takes over interim and will prepare the team first for the meeting on Wednesday in the Champions League against Olympiakos Piraeus.
The former co-coach of Joachim Loew will most likely have to vacate his chair again, as soon as Bayern can present a new head coach. Erik ten Hag of Ajax Amsterdam should be the favorite to this post and a first contact on the part of Bayern has allegedly already been made. Jose Mourinho or Massimiliano Allegri are traded in public as well as Ralf Rangnick.
However, we are looking forward to the next match in the premier class. There it looks for Bayern after nine points from three games very well. With a home win against bottom Olympiakos Bayern would be prematurely qualified for the knockout stages.
This goal would have the Munich with a high probability with Niko Kovac also achieved because before the kick-off between Bayern and Olympiakos Piraeus, the prediction is clearly in the direction of a FCB victory.
There are no excuses for the team anymore. There is a lot of media rumor that Niko Kovac has lost the players and the cabin in recent weeks. Now it will become clear whether the high-paying players will rediscover their enjoyment of football.
The Greek champion should be the right builder. Therefore speaks in the duel between Bayern and Olympiacos Piraeus much for three points of Munich.
It is also conceivable that the Bavarians will now celebrate a heady victory in the dissolved state. Maybe the team manages to steer the mood with a clear success and a nice game in the right direction.
Bayern – Statistics & Current Form
Results alone do not count at Bayern. The club bosses attach importance to the fact that the victories are retracted in intoxicating manner. It is difficult to explain otherwise that Niko Kovac was released. In the Champions League, the Bayern act very sovereign this season so far. In addition, the Munich are in the second round of the DFB Cup.
In the Bundesliga, it was not optimal up to here, of course. Four points behind leaders Gladbach are currently fourth. In the past season, the record champions have shown that he is also able to catch up larger arrears. Apparently, Niko Kovac did not want to expose himself to this pressure on Säbener Strasse, because according to reports the contract was dissolved by mutual agreement.
The Bayern have lost only one of the last five games. The 2: 2 in Augsburg, the poor appearance in the 3-2 in Piraeus and the prevention of a disgrace in the 2-1 in the DFB Cup in Bochum, however, were no application games for the coach. The 1: 5 last weekend in Frankfurt has finally brought the cask to overflow.
This bust was favored by a very early dismissal of Jerome Boateng. Frankfurt then went 2-0 in the lead before Robert Lewandowski could shorten. At the latest after the 1: 3 the defense of Bayern was broken and the team of Niko Kovac surrendered to his fate.
The dismissal of the coach was foreseeable. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge makes it clear that the superiors were neither satisfied with the achievements nor with the results of the last week and thus were forced to act.
“The performance of our team in recent weeks and the results have shown us that there was need for action.” – Karl-Heinz Rummenigge
With or without a new coach – In the match between Bayern and Olympiakos Piraeus, the odds of a home win remain the first choice.
How Bayern will present on Wednesday personnel, is difficult to judge after the change of coach. The media expect a bigger rotation compared to last Saturday.
Jerome Boateng, Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman could land on the bench. The two long-suffering center-backs Niklas Süle and Lucas Hernandez are certainly not included.
Expected formation of Bayern:
↳ Neuer – Pavard, Javi Martinez, Alaba, Davies – Kimmich, Thiago Alcantara – Müller, Goretzka, Coutinho – Lewandowski
↳ Coach: Flick
Last matches of Bayern:
⚽️ 02.11.2019 – Frankfurt vs Bayern 5: 1 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 29.10.2019 – Bochum Vs. Bayern 1: 2 (DFB Cup)
⚽️ 26.10.2019 – Bayern vs Union Berlin 2: 1 (Bundesliga)

Olympiakos Piraeus – Statistics & Current Form
If things do not get completely out of hand, then it will be in Group B of the premier class for Olympiakos Piraeus to claim third place in order to be able to continue in the Europa League, at least after the winter break.
The key game will be the return leg at home to Red Star Belgrade. All other games in the Champions League are currently only a bonus.
In the Greek Super League, it’s basically the same as always. Olympiakos is at the top of the classification. With PAOK Saloniki, there is currently only one serious pursuer, but only two points back. At national level, therefore, Piraeus can not afford to downshift at the moment.
International matches and games in the Greek competitions are two pairs of shoes. Thus Olympiakos has lost only two games in the past eight months, namely in the current premier class at Red Star Belgrade and at home against FCB. That sounds as if the duel between Bayern Munich and Olympiacos Piraeus should be the prediction towards home win clearly.
Last weekend, the Elf of Pedro Martins has shown a small weakness in the league. Despite a possession score of a good two-thirds Olympiakos did not come out at AO Xanthi over a goalless draw. Because the table top could be claimed but this point loss is not currently significant.
Maybe the Greeks will smell their chance for a point win on Wednesday in Munich. However, it is increasingly difficult to compete against a team with a new coach, because it is uncertain how the opponent will play.
“We have a better chance of playing for victory.” – Pedro Martins
Nevertheless, coach Pedro Martins looks at his team and announces that they want to play offensively in the Allianz Arena as well.
In general, the Greek master looks very good in terms of personnel. However, Olympiakos still has to cope with a failure that can not be compensated. Captain Konstantinos Fortounis falls into the New Year with a cruciate ligament tear. Otherwise, Piraeus should be able to bring all players on Wednesday.
Expected formation of Olympiakos Piraeus:
↳ Jose Sa – Elabdellaoui, Ruben Semedo, Meriah, Tsimikas – Bouchalakis – Guilherme, Camara, Daniel Podence, Masouras – Guerrero
↳ Coach: Pedro Martins
Last matches of Olympiacos Piraeus:
⚽️ 02.11.2019 – Skoda Xanthi vs. Olympiacos Piraeus 0: 0 (Super League)
⚽️ 27.10.2019 – Olympiacos Piraeus vs AEK Athens 2: 0 (Super League)
⚽️ 22.10.2019 – Olympiacos Piraeus vs Bayern 2: 3 (Champions League)
⚽️ 19.10.2019 – Olympiakos vs. Piraeus. OFI Crete 2: 1 (Super League)
⚽️ 06.10.2019 – Aris Salonika vs. Olympiacos Piraeus 1: 2 (Super League)
Bayern vs Olympiacos Piraeus Direct Comparison & Statistics Highlights
The teams of Bayern Munich and Olympiakos Piräus have faced each other five times. The direct comparison is a clear affair, because all previous duels Bayern have to decide for themselves. The first duels were in the first round in the European Cup of Champions in the 1980/81 season.
At that time, among others, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Paul Breitner, Klaus Augenthaler and Dieter Hoeneß also played in the Munich club. With two clear victories, the Bavarian prevailed at that time. Then it took 35 years before the paths crossed again in the Champions League and Bayern could again celebrate two clear victories in the group stage.

The Bavarians are not exactly the favorite enemy of the Greeks. All five games were won by Munich and as a rule many goals were scored. However, Olympiakos suffered only two defeats in the last eight months, one against Bayern. Overall, the team of Pedro Martins is not dangerous.
The Bayern want to solve the ticket for the knockout stages with a win. This will be done for the first time under the direction of Hansi Flick, after Niko Kovac was knocked out on Sunday.
