Without a doubt, the biggest, most anticipated game taking place on Wednesday is that between Barcelona and Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola’s return to Camp Nou will be watched by hundreds of millions of people from all around the world, and he will certainly want to make a good impression.
But will Manchester City be able to return to England with points from one of the most difficult away games in Europe?
Barcelona vs Manchester City – 19/10/2016
Betting Odds: Barcelona 1.50 or 1/2 Draw 5.00 or 4/1 Man City 6.50 or 11/2
Barcelona’s team really needs no introduction. Their awesome MSN trio is backed by extraordinary players, and transfers like Paco Alcacer or Andre Gomes have brought more depth to the squad – which was an issue last time around.
After their disappointing 3-4 defeat at Vigo, the team bounced back and won 4-0 over Deportivo at home. They won both their games in the Champions League, including a 7-1 win over Celtic at home, and beat Manchester City in their previous 4 encounters – although the games were never easy.
On the other side, Guardiola only has reasons to be worried. Apart from the strength of his former team and the fact that they will play in front of their home fans, Man City’s form isn’t very good. They have failed to win their last 3 games and come after a 1-1 draw against Everton in which they’ve missed 2 penalties.
They also can’t expect to attack a lot against Barcelona, and their defense wasn’t very impressive in recent times. But if there’s one coach that can invent something new and guide his team to victory, that is surely Guardiola.
Barcelona vs Manchester City Betting Tips
Despite all these, we still think Barcelona will win this game. We expect them to score at least twice against City, so Barcelona over 1,5 goals is a great bet.
Another great idea is to go for Barcelona and over 2,5 goals, solo over 2,5 goals, or combine any of the above with a goalscorer – Suarez, Neymar or Aguero. You have lots of choices from this game – pick them wisely!
