Champions League Match Preview, Betting Odds & Tips – 28/09/2016
Celtic – Manchester City is another game where, at least at first glance, the only question is how many goals will the home team concede. Sadly for them, Scottish teams haven’t made any impact in Europe for quite some time now, and this has been pinned on the lack of competitiveness of their domestic league. Will Celtic be able to produce a surprise at home against Man City?
Celtic vs Manchester City
Betting Odds: Celtic 10.00 or 9/1 Draw 5.75 or 19/4 Man City 1.33 or 1/3 with xNx
The Citizens will make sure this surprise is not an option. Guardiola managed to bring their game to new highs, and the team has one absolutely all their games this season, regardless of the competition they played in.
They won 4-0 against Moenchengladbach on Day 1, and are looking to have 6 points before the long-awaited double against Barcelona, which will surely determine the winners of the group.
The squad is brimming with talent and won regardless of which players appeared in attack – all the more reason for Celtic to be afraid.
On the other hand, Celtic don’t have lots of reasons to be optimistic. Their domestic form doesn’t count for anything when playing in Europe. They were on the receiving end of 7 goals on day 1, and conceded 6 of these in a single half against Barcelona.
Nobody expected them to win against the Spanish giants, but they didn’t even seem to be able to put up a fight. Now, they face another gigantic team, and their chances of success are slim-to-none.
Celtic vs Manchester City Betting Tips
We expect Manchester City to win by quite a few goals. Manchester City (-1,5) is our bet of choice, or Man City & over 3,5. These kind of bets are surely worth it, since we expect to see City score at least 3 or 4 times, just like they’ve done in some other games this season.
Aguero, Iheanacheo, Sterling, Nolito, Gudogan, Silva, De Bruyne … any of these players are more than capable of scoring. The game will be spectacular, to say the least.
Manchester City (-1.5): 1.925 with xNx
First Half Goals – Over 1.5: 2.20 or 6/5 with xNx
Manchester City & Over 3.5: 2.60 or 8/5 with xNx

Bayer Leverkusen vs Monaco – Champions League Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips The last day of the Champions League group stage is one of the hardest to predict.

Man City vs Celtic – Champions League Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips Group C is, without a doubt, the most boring one of Day 6. Barcelona are certain of finishing 1st, Man City will surely finish 2nd, and Gladbach and Celtic will finish 3rd and 4th. Given these facts, it’s very hard to think that any of the two games will provide good betting opportunities – but we’ll try to come up with some ideas for the game between Manchester City and Celtic.
