Manchester City secured their place in the Round of 16 of the 2020-21 Champions League after winning
Olympiacos at the Karaiskaki Stadium
Phil Foden scored the only goal as Manchester City secured their place in the Champions League knockout
stages yet again with a 1-0 victory over Olympiacos in Greece.
The 20-year-old turned home from a Raheem Sterling flick in the 36th minute as City maintained their 100
percent record in Group C and reached the last 16 with two matches to spare.
Pep Guardiola’s side struggled to carve out clear-cut chances as the Greek champions maintained a low block
for most of the match but ultimately got the job done without any hassles.
The Greek champions were stubborn opponents at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus but City, who
created a number of clear-cut opportunities, were never in danger of slipping up.
Foden, in fine goalscoring form after striking twice for England against Iceland last week, made no mistake with
a powerful low drive.
Sterling threatened again before the break but Sa parried a long-range drive and then palmed over a free-kick.
Foden then pounced on a defensive lapse early in the second half but Ruben Semedo blocked his shot and
Gundogan put the rebound wide. Joao Cancelo and Bernardo Silva also had efforts kept out by Sa before Foden
Aguero came on in the latter stages and City eased to the final whistle.
