Olympiakos v Manchester City live stream, BT Sport, Wednesday 25 November, 17.55pm GMT
Manchester City will be looking to bounce back from Saturday’s loss to Tottenham when they take on Olympiacos on Wednesday.
Pep Guardiola’s side succumbed to a 2-0 defeat in north London to leave them 13th in the Premier League table. It has been a highly underwhelming start for the pre-season title favourites, with City having taken just 12 points from their first eight games. Even more surprising is their poor goalscoring record: Guardiola’s team have made the net bulge on just 10 occasions to date.
City have fared much better in the Champions League. They possess a perfect record at the midway point of the group stage, beating each of Porto, Marseille and Olympiacos so far. They have scored far more freely too, netting three times against each of their Group C opponents. Victory in Greece would see them book a place in the knockout phase with two matches to spare.
Olympiacos overcame Marseille on matchday one, but they have lost both of their European encounters since then. Pedro Martins’ side were outclassed by City last time out, as goals from Ferran Torres, Gabriel Jesus and Joao Cancelo brought the hosts all three points at the Etihad Stadium.
Martins will not yet have given up hope of reaching the last 16, but avoiding defeat here will be crucial to those ambitions. A loss to City, coupled with a Porto victory over Marseille, would leave Olympiacos six points adrift of the top two.
Nathan Ake, Fernandinho and Benjamin Mendy are all still out for City, but Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling could come into the starting XI. Guardiola is likely to make full use of the five substitutes at his disposal if his team have a healthy lead in the second half, so some fringe members of his squad will hope for a run-out here.
Kick-off is at 17.55pm GMT and the game is being shown on BT Sport 3 in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch Olympiakos v Manchester City live stream from outside your country
We know, we know, this has crept up on you a bit. So what if you’ve organised a quick winter break and you’re out of the country for the first Champions League week of the season?
We can help. If you’re out of the country for this round of Champions League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address, and you’ll be blocked from watching.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
1. ExpressVPN (inc. 30-day, money-back guarantee)
The recommended VPN of choice. FourFourTwo’s brainy pals TechRadar love ExpressVPN's lightning-quick connections, security you can trust, and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 plus plenty more. It also comes with that money-back guarantee, has 24/7 support, is currently available for a 49% discount and with three months FREE. Grand.
2. Nord VPN (inc. 30-day, money-back guarantee)
A cheaper option; its cheapest package current averages at a titchy £2.29 per month.
3. IPVanish (inc. seven-day money-back guarantee)
Slightly more expensive but supports up to 10 devices, and you can pay up your hard-earned every three months if required.
