Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium will host Wednesday’s football game between Olympiakos and Manchester City. The Citizens aim to keep their 100% record in Group C intact, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Pep Guardiola’s men are eager to bounce back from the Premier League loss to Tottenham, and you should bear in mind that Kun Aguero should make his return to the starting XI against Olympiakos.
The likes of Ake, Fernandinho, and Mendy are all likely to miss the game with injury. The Thrylos, on the other hand, are still in the race for a place in the last 16, but they should not be looking for points in the clash against the star-studded Premier League side. Considering that the game will be played behind closed doors, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise.
Highlighted Player (Bruma):
Armindo Tué Na Bangna, known as Bruma, is a Portugal international who plays for PSV in the Eredivisie. Bruma is a product of the Sporting CP football academy, but he started his youth career at Uniao Bissau. The pacey winger born in Guinea-Bissau on October 24, 1994, made 13 appearances for Sporting CP at senior level before joining Turkish side Galatasaray in 2013.
The Portuguese footballer quickly established himself as one of the best Galata players, but after ending his loan spells with Gaziantepspor and Real Sociedad, he moved to Leipzig in the summer of 2017. After scoring five Bundesliga goals in 42 appearances for the Red Bulls, Bruma signed a five-year deal with PSV Eindhoven on June 28, 2019.
As for his international career, the 173-cm-tall winger made his Portugal debut on November 10, 2017 in a 3-0 win over Saudi Arabia. He scored his first goal for A Selecao in a 3-1 win over Scotland on October 14, 2018.
Highlighted Team (Man City):
Manchester City are the lest famous of the two major clubs based in Manchester. The club was founded in 1880, but they have been struggling in the English Premier League in the past. Nonetheless, ever since the club was purchased by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, the Citizens have been playing an important role in the English top flight.
Manchester City won two Premier League trophies under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini (2011/2012 and 2013/2014), but both managers eventually paid the price for some disappointing results. Man City play their home games at the Etihad Stadium and the stadium capacity is 55,097.
Manchester United are regarded as Manchester City’s biggest rivals and the likes of Kun Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Uwe Rosler, Yaya Toure, Sylvain Distin are some of the most remarkable players that played for the Etihad Stadium outfit. Manchester City have won four Premier League titles and five FA Cup trophies and it has to be noted that they made it to the Champions League semis in the 2015/2016 season.
