Manchester City vs Olympiakos Betting Tips – Champions League: Manchester City have been far from their full potential this season
Manchester City vs Olympiakos – but it seems that Pep Guardiola’s team is not letting that show in their Champions League performance so far, competition where they always participate with great aspirations and where they have had enormous difficulties to get to the quarter-finals.
With two games played, the English side has two wins, one against FC Porto (3-1) and another one against Marseille (3-0). Last Saturday, the “citizens” added their second win in a row, on their visit to Sheffield United, through collective minimum services (1-0), mainly translated by the goal from unusual authorship of their full back Kyle Walker.
Olympiakos believe they can fight for the round of 16, mainly with FC Porto, with whom they share the record of three points after two rounds, despite occupying the 3rd place in the league table of this Group C, where they are three points behind Manchester City and with an advantage of three points over Marseille.
On their debut, Pedro Martins’ team won in the reception to Marseille with a goal in the last moments of the match (1-0), but lost in the 2nd round against FC Porto (2-0), in a match where they were not able to take advantage of the moments where they stood on top of the game, also ending up being heavily penalized by a defensive error that cost them dearly. Last Saturday, the Greek team returned to victories, in their championship, by beating Smyrnis, at home, by 2-0.
I don’t think there will be much more to unveil in the approach that the two teams will have in a match where Manchester City is clearly the favorite side and anything that comes in addition to an Olympiakos defeat will be seen as profit.
Guardiola’s team will spend most of the time with the ball in their possession, trying to find solutions to break the defensive organization of the opponent, which should only show themselves at the moment of retrieving, where they have enough weapons to get out of the English pressure and reach the last third with some danger.

On the other hand, I don’t see Olympiakos able to stop the creative capacity of this Manchester City team, which should be able to create a sufficient number of scoring chances, but could also concede their second goal in this “Champions”.
