Manchester City can qualify for the round of 16 in the Champions League with a Wednesday night win versus Greece’s Olympiacos in Group C. The Cityzens may be flagging in the Premier League, but they are racking up points in the Champions League group stage. Truth be told, they received a kind draw against Olympiacos, Marseille, and FC Porto.
Pep Guardiola’s team go into matchday 4 with nine points from nine possible. They are three points ahead of second-placed FC Porto and six in front of Olympiacos after three fixtures. Manchester City have allowed just one goal in the group stage with that one strike coming on matchday 1. The Cityzens defence has not allowed a goal in 180 minutes of football in the competition.
Olympiacos occupy the Europa League position in Group C. Marseille are just three points back of Olympiacos, therefore, the Greeks must keep picking up points to remain in the third-place position. Pedro Martins team can still reach second place to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League. They need to get points on the final three matchdays to do so.
Manchester City handled Olympiacos with ease on matchday 3, 3-0. Ferran Torres, Gabriel Jesus, and Joao Cancelo all found the back of the net. Two of those goals did come in the final nine minutes.
Olympiacos vs Manchester City Betting Odds
According to leading sportsbooks, Manchester City are heavy favourites to win at full-time. Manchester City are 8/25 to win versus Olympiacos and qualify for the next round of the competition. The Cityzens easily won against Olympiacos at home on matchday 3. Sportsbooks believe they will take care of the Greek side on Wednesday night with a victory at the end of 90 minutes.
Olympiacos are on a two-match winning streak since their Champions League loss to Manchester City. The Greeks are 21/2 to win against Manchester City at home on matchday 4. Sportsbooks have little confidence in the Greeks to snatch a home win versus the Cityzens.
While Olympiacos are on a two-game league winning streak, Manchester City are winless in their last two Premier League fixtures. A 1-1 draw against Liverpool was followed by a 2-0 loss at Tottenham Hotspur over the weekend. Guardiola’s team are 13th in the Premier League and eight points off of first place. Although they are not out of the title race yet, it sure feels like it.
Olympiacos are currently third in the Greek Super League. They will hope to translate some of that good recent form over the Champions League on Wednesday night. Olympiacos have not allowed a single goal at home to opponents in all competitions this term.
Olympiacos vs Manchester City Team News
Guardiola has just three injury issues heading into the midweek clash in Greece. All three injuries are defensive as Nathan Ake, Benjamin Mendy, and Fernandinho. Mendy is unlikely to make the squad for the game due to an unspecified problem but is back in training. Ake and Fernandinho are currently ruled out of action with no timeline for a return. Ake has a thigh strain and Fernandino is recovering from a stomach issue.
Sergio Aguero is no longer on Manchester City’s injury list. After undergoing knee surgery which ruled him out of the restart in 2019-20, he returned to the team only to suffer a thigh strain. Manchester City’s scoring has declined without him in the starting XI. Manchester City average just 1.85 goals per game in all competitions.
According to the latest reports, Martins has just one player absent due to a fitness or health issue. Ousseynou Ba tested positive for COVID-19 and is ruled out of participating with the team.

Olympiacos vs Manchester City Prediction
Olympiacos have scored a mere one goal in the group stage. That goal came on matchday 1 versus Marseille in a 1-0 win. The team had to work for that goal and didn’t score until second-half stoppage-time. Manchester City proved on matchday 3 that they can win to nil against Olympiacos. They claimed a home 3-0 victory and could do it again away to the Greek team.
Ferran Torres is struggling in the Premier League with zero goals in six appearances. Despite firing blanks in the English top flight, Torres has bagged three Champions League goals in three group stage games. He scored the winner versus Olympiacos on matchday 3 and Guardiola could start the Spaniard once more against the Greek Super League leaders. He has scored in each group stage match this season.
Manchester City are struggling to get wins in the Premier League – just three from eight have been posted this season. In spite of not winning games in England, Manchester City have made the most of the Champions League this season.
They are in one of the weakest groups in the competition and have made the most of games against FC Porto, Marseille, and Olympiacos. All three games played Manchester City have finished with over 2.5 goals scored.
They kept back-to-back clean sheets in the competition, posting identical 3-0 wins versus Marseille and Olympiacos. Manchester City are through to the next round. There is really no doubt about it. Whether they can navigate the knockout stage and reach the final is another big question.
The Cityzens will seal progress to the last 16 with a win on Wednesday away. Expect another high-scoring game as the Cityzens prepare for the knockout stage of the tournament.
