Troubled Olympiakos faces underdog in cup

In turmoil following last weekend’s 4-0 thrashing at AEK that reduced Olympiakos’s league lead to just one point, the Piraeus team is hosted by second-division high-flyer Thrasyvoulos in first-leg Greek Cup action today. Besides its impressive run in the Greek Cup this season, Thrasyvoulos, a northeast Athens club that is currently placed second in the second division, is aiming for a spot in the Super League next season. In the other semifinal, whose first leg is also scheduled for tonight, a confident Aris hosts Atromitos just days after a 2-0 win at Xanthi at the weekend that further consolidated the Thessaloniki team’s fourth place in the Super League standings.
