They are in the CL and would play Porto or Krasnodar at home next week if they get through.

If they get knocked they drop into the EL (maybe not)

Wouldn't they play a qualifier? Pretty sure they would have to.
Must admit I was surprised when I read it but it say's what I said here (scroll to third qualifying round):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019–20_UEFA_Champions_League

The third qualifying round is split into two separate sections: Champions Path (for league champions) and League Path (for league non-champions). The losers from the Champions Path enter the 2019–20 UEFA Europa League play-off round, while the losers from the League Path enter the 2019–20 UEFA Europa League group stage.

Olympiakos are in the League route.

Not if they go out tonight. It’s a qualifying round, not playoff round.

Not that it matters now.

Nah, read the thread and links mate.

As well as Basak Basel, Dynamo Kiev and Porto are also now in Europa League Groups as a result of going out of CL tonight.
They were saying on Radio Scotland that they'll be playing europa league football next Thursday...

Edit - just read above.... that is fucking shocking they're in the group stages.

I give up!

"they" has always referred to Olympiakos when I have said it, like the opening question asked!
