Episode 2 of Guardiola’s clash with his former team is quickly coming. The humbling 4-0 defeat he suffered at Camp Now has surely left deep wounds, but will the legendary manager find the resources to put up a fight this time around? Or will Barcelona be looking at another walkover, guaranteeing them 1st place in the Group?
Manchester City vs Barcelona – 01/11/2016
Betting Odds: Man City 2.87 or 15/8 Draw 3.60 or 13/5 Barcelona 2.50 or 6/4
After several games without a win, Guardiola’s side finally won this weekend, 4-0 away at West Brom. Another great piece of news is Sergio Aguero’s form, who scored a brace against West Brom and is now level with Diego Costa at the top of the scoring charts in the Premier League.
He will be the main attacking threat against Barcelona, with the help of Sterling and De Bruyne, both in fine form. Unfortunately, City cannot rely on the goalkeeper they bought from Barcelona, since Bravo was sent off in the last game between the two teams.
On the other hand, Luis Enrique’s team is on a winning streak. Although Neymar and Suarez are not at the top of their game, the team finds win after win – mostly thanks to some great games from Leo Messi.
They are traveling to England without Pique, Iniesta, Alba, and Mathieu, all out with injuries, meaning that their defensive line won’t be at the top of its game.
Manchester City vs Barcelona Betting Tips
This is one of the things we can profit of – bet that Manchester City will score. Home ground advantage plus a shaky Barcelona defense should mean at least one goal for the home side. Meanwhile, we expect Messi to find his place on the scoresheet yet again.
The number of goals in the game should be at least over 1,5, if not over 2,5 – since Man City will open themselves, needing the win. Last but not least, Barcelona’s possession shouldn’t be over 55%. Their squad isn’t made of big experts in holding the ball.

Champions League 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…
