Olympiacos vs West Ham preview
West Ham's European adventure continues with a difficult clash against Olympiacos on Thursday.
David Moyes' side have enjoyed an excellent start to their campaign having taken a maximum six points from their opening two Group A matches.
They've not been as successful on the domestic front having drawn 2-2 with Newcastle before suffering a 4-1 demolition at the hands of Aston Villa over the weekend.
Nevertheless, the Hammers are the first English side to go 17 consecutive games in European competition without defeat and will hope to extend that run in Piraeus.
Olympiacos are top of their domestic league but sit third in Group A with a single point after defeat to Freiburg and a surprise draw with TSC Backa Topola.
West Ham fans will receive extra police protection for their trip to Greece after their opponents’ latest home game was abandoned when a visiting player was hit by a firecracker.

Olympiacos vs West Ham betting tips
There could be some goals in this contest, and 15/8 with Paddy Power for over 3.5 scored looks a good bet. Olympiacos are quite the entertainers. The Greek leaders have scored 22 goals in seven domestic matches – with 18 of those arriving on home turf.
Over 3.5 goals have been scored in seven of their last ten matches in all competitions, while goals have been scored in both halves in ten of their last 11 outings.
West Ham haven't been shy of a goal or two either. The Hammers have scored at least once in all seven of their competitive away games this season – completing over 3.5 goals on seven occasions.

Jarrod Bowen is central to everything West Ham do. The 26-year-old has bagged six goals and two assists in 900 minutes of competitive action.
The England international has had 26 efforts on goal in the league this season – which is more than James Ward-Prowse, Danny Ings and Mohammed Kudus combined. He's also something of a European specialist with nine goals and four assists in 22 Europa and Conference League matches.
- Our tip: Jarrod Bowen to score or assist at 13/10 with Paddy Power – CLAIM HERE
This has been quite a profitable market in recent weeks with several penalties dished out in the Premier League and European competition.
It's 6/4 that referee Andris Treimanis will award a spot-kick to either side on Thursday, which is something he's done TWICE in three games this season.
There have been four penalties in Olympiacos' last four games, and two for West Ham.
