Competition: Champions League
Market: Juventus to win against Man City
Odds: 27/20 @ Coral
Manchester City could well come unstuck when they travel to face Juventus tonight, with the out-of-form Sky Blues locking horns with a side back in form and unbeaten in the Champions League this season. City lost in the reverse fixture to Juventus, and are now faced with the task of getting a result in the Italians’ own back yard.
Manuel Pellegrino’s men have turned their form around in Europe since their defeat to Juventus, winning three on the bounce in Group D, but Manchester City will find life difficult in Juventus backyard given no side have beaten the Serie A side yet in Turin. Currently top of the group, Juventus have eight points from their four games in the Champions League this season, and will book their place in the next round with a win tonight.
Manchester City have already made it to the knockouts, but still have the top spot to contend for. Pellegrini’s men are suffering from a host of injuries, and are coming off the back of a defeat in their domestic league, so tonight’s clash with Juventus doesn’t come at the best time. They could be without Vincent Kompany, Fernandinho and David Silva, while Sergio Aguero still won’t be fully fit.
In the Premier League, City have won just once in their last four games, but they’re be fearful of a Juventus outfit boasting four wins from their last five in the Serie A, let alone an unbeaten record in the group stage to maintain. Boasting home advantage, the Italian giants are favourites to pick up maximum points from this evening’s encounter.
