Olympiacos 3-0 Volos: 3 talking points from Thrylos' big win ahead of the playoffs

Olympiacos secured a resounding 3-0 victory over Volos thanks to a dominant display at Georgios Karaiskakis in the final match of the Greek Superleague's regular season. Under the guidance of manager Jose Luis Mendilibar, the Red & White showcased their superiority extending their winning streak to seven consecutive matches. Let's delve into three key takeaways from the match:

1. Mendilibar's impact

Under Jose Luis Mendilibar's leadership Olympiacos have experienced a remarkable resurgence, winning all six matches since his appointment. Mendilibar has injected renewed confidence and tactical acumen into the team, guiding them to impressive performances along the way. With each passing game, the Spanish tactician's influence becomes more evident as Olympiacos continue to climb the league standings and assert themselves as genuine title contenders.

2. Dominance on the field, yet room for improvement

Despite Olympiacos' dominant performance against Volos, there's room for improvement in their finishing. While they controlled possession (66 per cent) and created numerous scoring opportunities (13 shots on target), they failed to capitalize on all of them, which could be concerning ahead of their crucial clash against Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Europa Conference League's Last 16. Efficiently converting chances will be essential for Olympiacos to succeed against tougher opponents in the European competition.

3. Playoff aspirations

With the conclusion of the regular season, Olympiacos now turn their attention to the championship playoffs, where they will compete against fellow top-six teams to determine the champion and UEFA competition qualifiers. Sitting in third place, just three points behind leaders PAOK, Olympiacos have emerged as serious contenders for the title. The team's recent resurgence under Mendilibar has instilled belief among fans, who now harbour hopes of celebrating a league triumph at the end of the season.

Olympiacos' commanding victory over Volos highlights the team's resurgence under Mendilibar's guidance. With their dominant display on the field and aspirations for championship success, Olympiacos have firmly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in Greek football. As they prepare for the challenges ahead in the championship playoffs and the Europa Conference League, Olympiacos will look to build on their recent success and continue their pursuit of silverware.
