Manuel Pellegrini's side play their third ICC match with a victory needed after defeat to Liverpool on penalties last time out, with our tipster backing lots of goals
City lost last time out to Liverpool on penalties, after drawing the match 2-2 in 90 minutes. A late Raheem Sterling goal denied City victory, after Stevan Jovetic had netted two earlier goals. This result followed up a convincing display against AC Milan, which saw City net four times in the first 25 minutes to seal the win. bet365 price them at 4/9 (1.44) for the victory.
Olympiakos started the competition well, thrashing AC Milan 3-0 in a dominate display. However, like City, they also lost to Liverpool, with the Reds winning 1-0 in 90 minutes. Olympiakos caused issues for the red half of Manchester earlier this season, proving a real threat in the Champions League, beating United 2-0 in the first leg of their last 16 match. Despite losing the tie overall, Olympiakos looked very dangerous on the break. bet365 price them at 11/2 (6.50) to cause a shock against City, with the same firm pricing the draw at 7/2 (4.50).
A bet that stands out in this match is both teams to score at 5/6 (1.83). Despite Olympiakos not scoring against Liverpool, Michel's side did net three times against AC Milan. With City conceding in every single pre season match this summer, with this bet landing in four of their five games, it's certainly worth backing goals.
