Manchester City v Barcelona Champions league Betting Preview & Tips

Manchester City welcome Spanish champions Barcelona to the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday, as the home side attempt to get their Champions League campaign back on track.

The home side have a mixed record in Europe so far this season and are underdogs to win this clash at odds of 15/8 with Betway.

The Citizens kicked-off their European campaign with a 4-0 win over Monchengladbach. However, a 3-3 draw at Celtic was followed by a 4-0 mauling at Barcelona in the reverse fixture. The game saw former-Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo dismissed for handling outside his penalty area.

Despite their inconsistent performances in the competition this season so far, City have a very creditable recent home record in Europe’s elite competition. The Citizens are seven games unbeaten on home soil in this competition, recording five wins in the process.

City’s games in this competition have been high-scoring, as four out of their last five games in Europe have produced over 2.5 goals.

If the Citizens win it will put the men from Manchester back in contention for winning the group. Another defeat could put Pep Guardiola’s side’s chances of qualifying in jeopardy.

Spanish champions Barcelona have endured a rather uncharacteristic inconsistent start to their domestic campaign by their high standards, but are favourites to win this clash at odds of 6/4 with Betfair.

The Blaugrana have a hundred percent record in the Champions League, winning all three of their group games, including that 4-0 win against City.

The Spanish champions unsurprisingly have a good record in this competition, winning six of their last seven games. The Catalan giants have also lost just two of their last 22 games in this competition.

Their away record in this competition is not bad either, with just two defeats in their last 12 games in European competition. The Catalan giants have faced City five times in the Champions League, winning on all five occasions.

Depending on the other game in this group a win for Barcelona would see the Catalan giants qualify for the knockout stages of the competition.

Betting tip for Manchester City v Barcelona

With Aguero in the team Man City are a different proposition so we take this to be a highly entertaining game and goals should flow so back that there will be over 2.5 goals at odds of 8/15 with Coral. Not great odds we know so the value bet would be to back Ageuro to score at anytime at the odds of 6/4 also with Corals.
