Olympiacos name squad for Champions League battle with Plzen
Olympiacos have named the list of players eligible to participate in the battle against Viktoria Plzen in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League.
On Tuesday, Olympiacos will play Viktoria Plzen in the Czech Republic in the first leg, before hosting the return at the Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus a week later. Ahead of the tie, the Erythrolefki have revealed the list of players eligible to compete in the two games, with African Cup of Nations participants Yassine Meriah and Pape Abou Cisse missing. The pair will still be on holiday as a result of their 2018/2019 season having only just finished.
Hillal Soudani, who recently joined Olympiacos this summer, is not on the list alongside Svetozar Markovic, Giannis Masouras, Franco Soldano and Hugo Cuypers. Jagos Vukovic, Kostas Fortounis and Lazaros Christodoulopoulos are all sitting on the sidelines with injuries.
