Manchester City FC will hope to continue on their 100% record in the champions league with their game against Greek Champions, Olympiakos FC. City have scored goals with ease in the Champions League so far with 6 goals in 2 games, conceding non but the same cant be said of their form in the premier league. City currently occupies the 10th position on the league table, have managed to score a meagre 9 goals in 6 games, an average of 1.5 goals per game and a goal difference of +1. At this stage last season, they had a goal difference of +18.

Asked what he thinks the team is doing differently in the Champions league that makes them score with ease as opposed to the premier league, where they haven’t been able to score so many goals, Manager Pep Guardiola says He does not know why.

” I know we are a team that can score a lot of goals, just like last season where we scored a lot and we conceded a few goals, even in the premier league, except for the game against Leicester because we gave them unnecessary penalties. The other games, the average was quite good especially in every game, we create more and concede less than the opponents. This is the important task that we have but the reason why we have scored easily in the champions league than the league, I do not know it.”
