Manchester City vs Tottenham UEFA Champions League Betting Lines & Prediction

Why Bet On Tottenham

Tottenham has won three straight matches including a 1-0 win over Manchester United in the first leg of their quarterfinal pairing last week while following that win up with a commanding 4-0 smackdown of London rivals, Chelsea this past weekend. Lucas Moura had a hat trick in the win while Victor Wanyama added a goal.

The Spurs will of course be without veteran forward Harry Kane while looking to rebound after suffering consecutive losses in English Premier League play Still, Manchester United manager Pep Guardiola said.

“[They will be] the same strong team they had three years ago, last season and this. [They are an] incredible top team.”

Tottenham Expected Lineup

  • Hugo Lloris
  • Danny Rose
  • J. Vertonghen
  • T. Alderweireld
  • K. Trippier
  • C. Eriksen
  • V. Wanyama
  • M. Sissoko
  • Lucas Moura
  • S. Heung-Min
  • F. Llorente

Why Bet On Manchester City

Manchester United has won four of their last five matches with their only defeat during the span coming against Tottenham. The Citizens will be highly motivated, seeing as how anything but a win on Wednesday would see them eliminated from Europe at the quarterfinal stage for the second straight year. Manchester United will also have revenge on their minds after falling to Tottenham last week in a nail-biter.

“If we don’t win these games we will be out of two competitions,” managed Pep Guardiola told reporters at a news conference this week. “They are absolute finals for us. Every time in a competition [they are] when you arrive in the latter stages. We don’t have a 12-point [gap] like last season — in this period, we were already champions.

The Citizens could potentially be without veterans, Fabian Delph and Fernandinho after the pair started the first leg at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but missed the weekend’s clash against Crystal Palace.

Manchester City Expected Lineup

  • Ederson
  • B. Mendy
  • A. Laporte
  • N. Otamendi
  • Kyle Walker
  • K. De Bruyne
  • Fernandinho
  • I. Gundogan
  • B. Silva
  • R. Sterling
  • S. Aguero

Expert Analysis and Prediction

Manchester United might have dropped the first leg of this quarterfinal pairing against Tottenham, but I like the Citizens to extract some revenge by narrowly getting past their Champions League opponents in this matchup. Man U. won each of the previous four meetings against Tottenham prior to loss against Tottenham in their last meeting and I like them to get back in the win column to extend their Champions League hopes for at least one more game.

Pick: Manchester United 2 Tottenham 1
