Liverpool vs Manchester City Prediction & Betting tips
In the Champions League in the next few days, the first leg of the quarter-finals and the English are approaching them with mixed feelings. Because with Liverpool and Manchester City, two top teams from the island meet directly, which is not necessarily beneficial for the UEFA five-year rating of the British. The one suffering is the other Freud. Because the rest of Europe looks forward to this match of two offensive monsters. After all, both teams scored twelve goals in the last two direct encounters alone. We expect at least three goals in the upcoming game and recommend a corresponding tip on over 2.5 goals. Matching bets are offered by Unibet at betting odds of 1.71 and can be played with a medium bet.
The Liverpool Football Club defeated unbeaten in the group stage with a 3-3-0 balance, a goal difference of 23: 6 – an average of five matches per game – and twelve points against Sevilla FC, Spartak Moscow and NK Maribor. In the second round, the team trained by Jürgen Klopp then met FC Porto and had a relatively easy game. The first leg in Portugal won the Reds 5-0 so that they could manage the lead in the second leg and accept a goalless draw.
The current form of Klopp Elf is quite positive. Eventually, the Reds won seven of the past ten competitive games. There are also two draws against Tottenham Hotspurs (2: 2) and FC Porto (0: 0). The 1: 2 defeat against Manchester United was certainly not earned and due to the disciplined defensive tactic of the opponent, which did not let the Liverpool‘s offensive despite much larger possession shares to unfold. The dress rehearsals at Chrystal Palace after the international break – the 100th game under Jürgen Klopp – decided the Reds then again for themselves, but could hardly spare in terms of the Champions League quarter-finals. However, the Klopp-Elf did not let themselves be confused by an early backlog and turned the match in the second half completely by hits from Mane and Salah (top scorer in the Premier League with 29 goals and 9 assists) to 2-1 final score.
The Manchester City Football Club conceded in the group stage a defeat at Shakhtar Donetsk. At this time, the team of chief coach Pep Guardiola was already the victorious group winner after five wins against Donetsk, SSC Napoli and Feyenoord Rotterdam, with a goal difference of 14: 5 and fifteen points. In the second round, the Citizens were already in Basel with a 4-0 win for clear conditions. In the second leg Man City let go after an early lead the reins a bit loose, which led in the end to a tight and certainly also einkalkuleten 1: 2 defeat.
Interestingly, the shape of Manchester City is slightly worse than that of the upcoming opponent. Because in addition to the defeat against Basel is also a bankruptcy in the FA Cup against third division Wigan Athletic, which ultimately only one chance to extremely happy 0: 1 victory enough. Of the remaining eight games the Guardiola Elf decided at least seven for themselves. In addition to the Arsenal FC (two 3-0 victories) and the reigning English champions, Chelsea FC, was beaten 1-0. The dress rehearsal last weekend, the Citizens then used for a small demonstration of their offensive strength. In the first half, Manchester downplayed Everton FC and went down 3-0 after beating Sane, Jesus and Sterling. In the second half was probably down for the upcoming Champions League game a few gears down, so Everton could still shorten to 3-1 final score.
