It is not the first time that Lucescu talked about Olympiakos's protection from the referees as straight after the game of the first round the Romanian manager complained about the referees' calls in favour of Olympiakos.
After yesterday's defeat at Karaiskakis Stadium, Lucescu hinted that Olympiakos are constantly being helped from the referees because they are the biggest club in the country.
“This is because they are a big team. So that means to feel strong and to have a kind of protection which gives you confidence,” Lucescu said.
Even though Olympiakos scored two clear goals which decided the game, sdna.gr reveals a video which indicates six separate incidents within yesterday's game where the referee Alexandros Dimitropoulos makes some controversial decisions in favour of the home team.
