Hoffenheim‬ – Olympiacos 4-1

Hoffenheim‬ – Olympiacos 4-1

In his second friendly in Germany, Olympiacos lost 4-1 against Hoffenheim.

Megyeri protected the goal. In defense, Cholevas took on the left, Salino the right, while Siovas and Medjani were the stoppers. Machado would be the playmaker ahead of the stoppers, with Samaris and Maniatis covering the midfield in front of him. In offense, Fetfatzidis would attack from the right, Campbell from the left and Mitroglou was the striker atop.

Olympiacos entered the pitch as eagerly as in the previous encounter against Stuttgart.

Following a corner kick, the ball was received by Firmino inside the box, whose cross hit Cholevas in the face from very close range. The ball bounced back to him and, unmarked, crossed it again only for Abraham to convert with a header.

In 33’, Hoffenheim celebrated their second. Following an Olympiacos mistake in the midfield, the Germans intercepted the ball, played it wide sharply and Volland was the last to meet it and convert with an inside of the foot shot for 2-0.

The first half ended in 2-0 and our side had displayed both strengths, such as desire to put pressure on the opponent, energy and rational game build-up, and points to be improved.

after the break, Olympiacos started with six half-time substitutes in the pitch, that is Gianniotis, Papazoglou, Manolas, Fuster, Olaitan, and Dominguez.

In 61’, new substitutes came on for Olympiacos with Fejsa, Diamantakos, De Vincenti, and Lykogiannis joining in.

At that moment, and contrary to the match momentum, Hoffenheim scored their third goal in 72’. The ball got intercepted in the midfield and the Germans counter-attacked with Johnson turning the ball from the left to Schipplock who netted it smoothly. A few minutes later, Firmino scored the fourth for the German side.

Moments before the final whistle, Diamantakos, following a Lykogiannis free kick, took the opportunity and scored from inside the box to shrink the deficit into the final 4-1.
