Manuel Pellegrini's side and Michel's men have so far lost one and won one match each. Both teams need victory to stay alive in the pre-season competition.
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) to beat the Greek champions.
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 last 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.
