UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 25 November 2020
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium (Piraeus).
Losing two games in a row will not be a favorable condition for Olympiakos Piraeus, when they are set to host one of the strongest teams from the English Premier League. They will return home after suffering a 3-0 loss on the road against Manchester City in the last CL encounter in their schedule.
Having won all their CL fixtures in the group stage as it stands, Manchester City will look to build on their winning streak for the upcoming match. They have conceded only one goal in the group stage so far this season and have averaged 3 goals per match in the campaign.

Olympiakos vs Manchester City Prediction
Pep Guardiola and his men are known for their incision into the opponent’s defense. Manchester City has proved their valor with a 3-0 home win in the reverse fixture with the host.
However, they will have to pull back from the 2-0 loss on the road against Tottenham in the EPL last time out in their schedule.
Olympiakos is on a two-game winning streak in the Greece Super League, following a 1-0 win at home against the likes of Panathinaikos. Apart from the opening win in the group stage, the host has lost both their remaining clashes with stronger sides in the mix.
The host enjoys the ground advantage, but it will not be useful against stronger squad strength that the City can offer in the middle during the upcoming fixture.
Hence, the tip for Manchester City to win with a -1 handicap will probably be the ideal choice to yield decent returns.
Besides, we can expect a high-scoring affair in the upcoming clash. That’s why the tip for over 2.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters.
