Olympiacos is hosting Manchester City at Georgios Karaiskakis in round 4 in the UEFA Champions League.
Olympiacos has won 3 of their last 5 games, and both of their losses were in the Champions League. Olympiacos is in 3rd place in their Champions League group with 3 points, 1 scored goal, and 5 conceded goals so far. Hassan is the only goalscorer for Olympiacos with 1 goal in the Champions League. Valbuena is injured, while Hassan, El Arabi, Sourlis, and Randjelovic are all in quarantine because of the Coronavirus. In the Greek Super League 1, Olympiacos is at the top of the table with 19 points and the competitions in tough. In their last match, Olympiacos was hosting Panathinaikos in a derby match of Super League 1, and they were solid with 55% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, and 3 corner kicks. Olympiacos has won this game 1-0 by a goal in the 22nd minute of the game. Olympiacos hasn’t conceded a goal in their last 2 games, but that was in the Greek Super League 1, but the Champions League is a different beast. Olympiacos could end up in a third place which will take them to the Europa League, which is where they belong.
City might be struggling with scoring goals in the EPL this season, but they are doing a fantastic job in the Champions League. Manchester City has scored 9 goals in 3 games while conceding only 1 goal, and they are in first place in their group. Manchester City was playing against Tottenham on the road last weekend, and they were the dominant team with 67% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 10 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 89% of the correct passes. Despite being the better team here, City wasn’t able to score a goal, and they ended up losing this match 2-0. Ferran Torres has scored 3 goals for Manchester City in the Champions League, while Gundogan added 2 goals. Aguero, Ake, and Sandler are all injured, and they will miss this game for Manchester City. There is a lot of inconsistency in Manchester City’s game this season, but they are still a great team with a lot of quality and a lot of depth. The possession is City’s strongest part of the game, and if only could utilize that possession and score more goals, while playing solid defense like they do, City would be unstoppable.
City has beaten Olympiacos at home a few weeks ago, and considering how many injuries Olympiacos has, I think City will get another win, this time on the road. I expect another dominant game from Manchester City, and Olympiacos definitely doesn’t have the quality to stop Manchester City.
