Olympiakos hosts Manchester City
Olympiakos hosts Manchester City at the Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki in Piraeus in a game from Group C of the Champions League. We are about to present you our football prediction betting tips today for this fixture. Are you ready?
At this moment Olympiakos are third in this group with 3 points won so far and they are hoping for keeping this position at least. At the same time the Greeks are 3 points behind the second Porto and 3 points ahead of the 4th Olympique Marseille. Olympiakos have some options in this group, but it’s important how the other three matches will go. Right now they are in a good position to chase a qualification for Europa League at least.
Olympiakos started their campaign in the group with a bang when they beat Olympique Marseille in their first match. The problem is they lost the next two against Porto and Manchester City.
Two weeks ago the Greek champion traveled to face Manchester City at the Etihad, but they suffered a 0-3 defeat against the English giants. The manager Pedro Martins tried to trouble the Cityzens with an attacking 4-3-3 formation, but City were just too strong on this day.
Manchester City are in a pole position for the first place in this group. Pep Guardiola’s boys are currently leading the standings with 9 points won and a perfect record of three wins from three matches played. It’s not really surprising, though – we all expected to see City dominating this group.
Man City’s win against Olympiakos two weeks ago was a solid one. Ferran Torres opened the score in the first half while Gabriel Jesus and Joao Cancelo finished the job after the break.
That’s our football prediction betting tips today for the Champions League fixture between Olympiakos and Manchester City in the Greek city of Piraeus. We wish you good luck.
