Final Betting Analysis: Atletico Madrid at Manchester City
The 4-1 win versus Man United five matches ago prove the Sky Blues can turn it on when they wish. But that’s just it. City is so talented that they decide when do dominate and when they mustn’t.
It’s difficult seeing Man City’s star players, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Jack Grealish, etc., going all out in this match. It’s even harder seeing Pep Guardiola trying to dominate Atletico by more than a goal.
Guardiola is a master at getting his squad to peak at the right moment. He knows Manchester City has another leg to go in the Champions League Quarterfinals. So the real goal this week is to beat Liverpool, which has cut Man City’s lead to a point on the EPL Standings, on Sunday.
Pep will instruct his team to play excellent defense and beat Atletico by a goal. Guardiola will be happy to leave the pitch with a 1-goal lead so that the Sky Blues have something in the tank for the Reds on April 10. City wins straight up. Atletico wins on the handicap.
Champions League Pick: Atletico Madrid +1 ½
