In the third round of the UEFA Champions League fixtures, Manchester City will be looking to continue their perfect start when they host Olympiakos in an important Group C match on Wednesday, November 4, at the Etihad Stadium. The match will commence at 01:30 am IST. Manchester City have won both their European games so far in the season. City have already asserted their presence in Group C with two convincing victories against Marseille (3-0) and Porto (3-1). Pep Guardiola's team would like to continue their perfect streak in the Champions League against Olympiakos too.
Even though Olympiakos won their opening game in the Champions League, they will be keen not to repeat their 2-0 loss to Porto last week. The team from Greece will face an uphill task as they face Premier League giants tomorrow. Pedro Martin's squad recovered from their 2-0 drubbing in Portugal, as they went on to register a 2-0 win against Apollon Smyrnis in the Greek Super League on the weekend.
This will be the first ever European meeting between Manchester City and Olympiakos. The previous clash between the two sides was in 2010-11 UEFA Europa League, which resulted in a 3-0 victory for Manchester City.
