Burnley’s European adventure looks to be derailing their domestic efforts and they are unlikely to get anything from Olympiakos tonight.
An away goal was the only positive the Clarets could muster from last week’s 3-1 Europa League play-off defeat in Athens, the middle reverse in a run of three straight losses.
Having become famous for their defensive resilience, Burnley have conceded 10 times in their defeats to Watford, Fulham and tonight’s opponents.
Olympiakos may not be the force they once were but were a cut above Sean Dyche’s men and can put an end to what has been a mixed jaunt into Europe for the Lancashire club.
Last week’s 1-0 win was less than Rangers deserved from their dominant display against Ufa and their trip to Russia is a bit of a step into the unknown.
Ufa are here somewhat by default, having only gained their European place by a result of FC Tosno not completing the correct paperwork to play continental football.
They were lacklustre in Glasgow and head into this game on the back of a five-match winless run.
Steven Gerrard’s side seem to be growing in confidence with every game and with the Old Firm derby to come on Sunday, can add to their belief with a win in Bashkortostan.
