Olympiacos name squad to face Krasnodar
Olympiacos have named the list of players eligible to play against Krasnodar in the 2019/2020 UEFA Champions League qualification playoffs.
Just like in the third qualifying round, there is no place for either Ousseynou Ba (defender) or Fjorin Durmishaj (forward) in the squad, with the pair not in the plans of head coach Pedro Martins. It remains to be seen if Ba and Durmishaj remain in Piraeus for the full 2019/2020 season.
This summer, Ba arrived from Gazelec Ajaccio in France, while Durmishaj left Panionios in favour of Olympiacos.
Here is the list of players eligible to play in the UEFA Champions League playoffs against FC Krasnodar:
Goalkeepers: Jose Sa, Bobby Allain.
Defenders: Ruben Semedo, Omar Elabdellaoui, Pape Abou Cisse, Leonardo Koutris, Yassine Meriah, Avraam Papadopoulos, Vasilis Torosidis, Konstantinos Tsimikas.
Midfielders: Athanasios Androutsos, Andreas Bouchalakis, Mohamed Camara, Daniel Podence, Guilherme, Giorgos Masouras, Lazar Randjelovic, Hillal Soudani, Felipe Bruno, Mathieu Valbuena.
Forwards: Miguel Angel Guerrero, Youssef El Arabi.
Goalkeepers: Ilias Karargyris.
Defenders: Apostolos Martinis.
Midfielders: Giorgos Fekkas, Nikitas Nikolis, Vasilis Sourlis, Giorgos Xenitidis.
Forwards: Alexandros Voilis.
Two changes can be made to the squad up to 24 hours before the first match.
On August 21, the first leg against Krasnodar will take place at the Karaiskakis Stadium, before Olympiacos travel to Russia for the return on August 27.
