It will be a beginning of a new era for Olympiacos, who will start the upcoming season under new coach Corberan. He has not been in the position for long since his appointment and already has a big game to prepare his team for. Hence, he could avoid making wholesale changes and instead play them in the same formation and set up to help them prepare in the best way possible for the upcoming match.
