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!

Champions League Football Predictions And Betting Tips
Porto – Leicester is one of the most interesting games of this week’s Champions League, for a wide variety of reasons, almost none of which relate to the English Champions. Leicester have qualified and are doing badly in their domestic league, which opens the door to Porto to do what’s required of them and qualify from the group as well – but will they be able to capitalize? Porto vs Leicester City – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Porto 1.35 or 7/20 Draw 5.25 or 17/4 Leicester City 11.00 or 10/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.85 or 17/20 Under 1.95 or 19/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.25 or 5/4 No 1.57 or 4/7 Porto can qualify in only…
Although Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified, Group E still gives us an interesting clash: Tottenham vs CSKA Moscow. The two teams haven’t been up to their normal standards of quality in the CL so far, but surely want to play European soccer – even if it is in the Europa League. Tottenham have a slight advantage, but will it prove to be enough? Tottenham vs CSKA Mosow – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Tottenham 1.53 or 8/15 Draw 4.33 or 10/3 CSKA Moscow 7.00 or 6/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.80 or 4/5 Under 2.00 or 1/1 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.95 or 19/20 No 1.80 or 4/5 Actually, the Spurs have a few advantages on their…
Group H is one of the interesting ones for this week. Although Juventus and Sevilla are more or less sure of their qualification places, they still need to figure out who will win the group. While Sevilla has a very hard game against Lyon, Juventus are hosting the weakest team of the group stage, Dinamo Zagreb. A win would ensure first place – can they get it? Juventus vs Dinamo Zagreb – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Juventus 1.12 or 1/8 Draw 10.00 or 9/1 Dinamo 26.00 or 25/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.44 or 4/9 Under 2.70 or 17/10 Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.62 or 13/8 No 1.44 or 4/9 Our analysis tells us that Juventus should…
The last day of the Champions League group stage is one of the hardest to predict. Teams are either qualified and have no desire to field their best eleven, or are clinging to the last chance to play European football in spring as well. Sadly for the spectacle of the CL, Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified before their direct game and are both sure of their positions in the group. Bayer vs Monaco – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Bayer 1.80 or 4/5 Draw 3.80 or 14/5 Monaco 4.75 or 15/4 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.75 or 3/4 Under 2.05 or 21/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.70 or 7/10 No 2.05 or 21/20 Monaco is one…
Group F of the Champions League features some very interesting games this week. We can see a clash between Dortmund and Real Madrid, which will decide the leader of the group, and a game for 3rd place, between Sporting Lisbon and Legia Warsaw – which is much harder to predict that it looks on paper. Legia Warsaw vs Sporting Lisbon – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Legia 4.60 or 18/5 Draw 3.90 or 29/10 Sporting 1.80 or 4/5 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.65 or 13/20 Under 2.20 or 6/5 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.61 or 8/13 No 2.20 or 6/5 We’re saying it’s hard to predict because Legia has shown they are capable of playing good football, especially…
