The Greek and English sides are both owned by Evangelos Marinakis, and there is potential for a couple of Forest loanees featuring in the hosts’ starting lineup.

While few people will be going as far as describing this game as the Marinakis derby, it is an occasion where he will be intrigued to see how these two teams match up on the pitch.

Both teams have not enjoyed the best of seasons, particularly Forest, who have been in the Premier League relegation zone for the majority of the time since the start of August.

However, is is Olympiacos’ poor underwhelming campaign which has been highlighted more on the continent, the champions of the last three Greek top-flight editions currently 12 points off the pace.

Manegerial changes have accompanied that drop off, the current uncumbent being Michel, who has recently returned for a second spell in charge after previously delivering two league title at the Georgios Karaskaki Stadium.

As it stands, the Spaniard has recorded five wins and four draws from his 12 matches in charge, but he was unable to prevent Olympiacos from finishing bottom in their Europa League group.

Since the start of the month, a 2-0 victory has come against Huddersfield Town and a 3-3 draw with Standard Liege has been played out, both matches being friendlies.

In sharp contrast, Nottingham have gone down 2-1 and 3-2 in friendlies with Stoke City and Atromitos, leaving Steve Cooper demanding improvements in this game.

Cooper’s side lost just once in six games before the World Cup break, that reverse coming by a 5-0 scoreline at Arsenal, but Nottingham remain one point adrift of safety in the Premier League.

Forest are back in competitive action on December 21 when they take on Blackburn Rovers in the EFL Cup, while Olympiacos are also in cup action when they meet Atromitos on December 15.

Olympiacos Team News

Having represented South Korea at the World Cup, Hwang In-beom and Hwang Ui-jo, a Nottingham loanee, are unlikely to be used by Michel for this game.

Pierre Kunde may feature off the back of Cameroon’s group-stage exit from the same tournament, but Michel will be looking to select his strongest XI.
