Champions League

Manchester City v CSKA Moscow Betting Preview

City really need to produce a win in this one to get themselves back in the qualification picture. Just one point from their opening two matches sees them in a bit of vulnerable position and the Premier League side really need to push on here before they run out of time. City are favourites for the match out in Russia, which says something about them, and perhaps reflects the weak opposition that they are going up against.

Manchester City v CSKA Moscow Betting Tips

Manchester City can at least take heart and confidence from the fact that they did beat CSKA Moscow in both matches last season when they were together in the group stage of the Champions League. They did fall behind in the match in Russia though, but were saved from a brace from Sergio Aguero. The Argentine, who netted four goals against Spurs on the weekend, is clearly worth backing in the anytime goalscorer market for a price of even money. Aguero has scored in each of his last four appearances for City, and they will need a big game from him after losing against Bayern Munich and then being held to a draw by Roma. City do at least have a positive 100% record against sides from Russia, those meetings against CSKA being their only two.

Tough to call if this is likely to go over 2.5 goals or not. City have to show some caution at the back because they can ill afford to lose this game. They aren’t exactly in a position to throw away goals in this one, but you have to think that around a 2-0 scoreline for the Premier League outfit is realistic. Their defence has leaked goals this season, however, they aren’t going up a particularly high quality side in CSKA here. City do at least have the goals in them to produce a victory, and since their match day one loss against Bayern Munich, the Citizens are unbeaten in six matches in all competitions since and have slowly been improving in terms of producing professional displays.

CSKA Moscow have lost their opening two matches, going down 5-1 against Roma and then in a narrow 1-0 defeat against Bayern Munich. Leonid Slutsky’s men have won just one of their  last six UEFA Champions League games at home, and that win wasn’t even at home, as it came in St Petersburg last season because their own pitch in Moscow wasn’t fit for the game. Overall, the Russians hold a W2 D0 L3 home record against English sides, so nothing for City to worry about. While their domestic form has been good, winning eight of ten, it’s not the highest quality league in the world obviously. Ahmed Musa and Seydou Doumbia are both 3/1 shots in the anytime goalscorer market for them.

Manchester City v CSKA Moscow Betting Odds

Man City 4/7, Draw 3/1, CSKA Moscow 5/1

Manchester City v CSKA Moscow Predictions

CSKA aren’t particularly a possession-based side and haven’t gotten on the ball much in their opening two Champions League fixtures last season. That’s all City really have to do, keep the ball, and rely on Aguero to sneak a chance or two. The Premier League outfit shouldn’t get threatened too much at the back, and would expect the game to be a low scoring match up under 2.5 goals.

It was a stellar performance from Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero on the weekend after he slotted in all four of Man City’s goals in a 4-1 home win for the reigning champions over Spurs. It could have truthfully been more from the Argentinean as he also missed a penalty and was denied by the brilliance of Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris. Bookmakers were quick to trim him from 4/1 to 11/8 to be the Premier League’s top scorer this season.

Aguero’s four goal haul took his season tally to nine, putting him level with Chelsea’s Diego Costa. With last season being heavily disrupted by injury, it has been a wonderful start to the new season from Aguero and if he can put the minutes in this season, then he should be close to the top goalscorer prize.

With question marks over the strength of Diego Costa’s hamstring, a problem which forced him out of Chelsea’s 2-1 win at Crystal Palace on the weekend, the Spaniard has been eased out to 5/4 to top the goalscoring charts on his debut season in England. Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho said that he had “no idea” when his striker would be back in action. Costa won’t be available for Chelsea’s midweek Champions League fixture and is unlikely to be around for next weekend’s Premier League clash with Manchester United.

Southampton’s Graziano Pelle also received a price cut, coming in from 33/1 to 20/1 after he netted his fourth and fifth goals of the campaign for the Saints in their 8-0 demolition job of Sunderland. The south coast club are now up to third in the table and they are priced up at 8/1 with online betting site Skybet for a top four finish at the end of the term.

It is Pick Your Own Money Back Special time for the big Manchester City v Tottenham betting spectacle from the Premier League on Saturday. This is the lunch time kick off and reigning champions City will be looking to keep up the pressure on leaders Chelsea, while Spurs will be eyeing a big three points to haul themselves level with the Citizens in the standings.

Last season, City were dominant against the Lilywhites, scoring five at White Hart Lane and thrashing Spurs 6-0 at the Etihad in this corresponding fixture. They have the bigger firepower at their disposal out of the two sides, and Edin Dzeko has netted six in six appearances against the London outfit, while Sergio Aguero has scored five in five against them.

The options for the Paddy Power Pick Your Own Money Back Special for Man City v Spurs betting are, Sergio Aguero scores first, David Silva scores anytime, the match ending in a draw or a goal scored in the last five minutes. Pick one of those cashback triggers for the game.

If your selected trigger gets activated in the match, then online betting site Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast singles on the match as a free bet! Great coverage for the game and well worth snapping up.

Will City take the three points against Spurs, as they have done in five of the last six league meetings between the two clubs, or will Spurs, who have won just two of their last eight in all competitions, pull off an upset at the Etihad?

Manchester City v Tottenham Betting Preview

There is the promise of goals to come at the Etihad as Spurs make a trip to the north west. Man City dominated Tottenham last season, and with Spurs struggling for wins at the moment, will this be another three points picked up by Manuel Pellegrini’s men over the Lilywhites? City run as heavy favourites to bag the win on home soil and keep up the pressure on early league leaders Chelsea.

Online betting site Paddy Power have a Money Back Special for this game, as well as running their great 20% acca win bonus. If City’s David Silva scores at anytime against Tottenham, they will refund as a free bet up to £100 lost stakes on the first goalscorer, last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast singles.

Manchester City v Tottenham Betting Tips

Clean sheets have been particularly hard to come by for Manchester City this season, only picking up their first one of the new term in a 2-0 away win at Villa before the international break. All of the form in the head to head between these two is with the Citizens, who have won five of the last six clahses (L1) in the Premier League. This fixture was a rout last season as City opened the scoring inside 15 seconds and romped to a 6-0 win. While the Citizens haven’t shown that kind of prolific forward return this season, they have two strikers with great records against Spurs. Edin Dzeko has scored six in six against Spurs, while Sergio Aguero, 3/1 favourite in the first goalscorer market has scored five in five Premier League appearances against the Lilywhites.

So a high scoring game should be on the cards. There have been 30 goals scored between them in the last six top flight meetings at an average of five per game. In those six matches, City have dominated, scoring 22 of those 30 goals. It hasn’t been plain sailing for City at home this season, which is very unlike them. They are without a win in their last two league games at the Etihad, having suffered a shock defeat against Stoke there, followed by a draw against Chelsea. The last time they went three in a row without a win at home in the league was in November of 2010. Worth backing the game to go over 2.5 goals for a price of 4/7 with online bookmaker Paddy POwer, and you can back both teams to score at a quote of 4/6 too.

Can Spurs gain some revenge for last season’s embarrassment? Well, they aren’t really showing the kind of form to do so. Mauricio Pochettino’s troops have mustered up just the two wins in their last eight played in all competitions. They’ve won one of their last five Premier League matches, but that victory was a good three points against the in-form Southampton at White Hart Lane just before the international break. Problematically for Spurs, is that they don’t have a lot of genuine strike power, so that will limit their chances. But with City shipping goals, Spurs could well grab one though and make a game of it. In the Premier League, Spurs have won 30 against the Citizens, and they have only won more against Everton, but their away form is poor at the moment, winning just three their last 11 Premier League away matches (W3 D4 L4).

Manchester City v Tottenham Betting Odds

Man City 4/9, Draw 7/2, Spurs 11/2

Manchester City v Tottenham Predictions

City should have enough to produce another win over Spurs. The Londoners aren’t looking all that sharp up front and City clearly have the superior strike force. It should be enough, but expect the goals to be flowing and go over 2.5 goals, pushing out to over 3.5 too. Also there is a realistic chance of both teams scoring in this one, history would suggest so.

Aguero (Manchester City)

Aston Villa v Manchester City Betting Preview

The season is starting to turn a bit sour for the Villains and it could be further into a hole in which they sink in this one. After back to back defeats against Arsenal and Chelsea, there’s another tough fixture on the cards for them. The Citizens are running as favourites for a win in the Midlands and the stats are there to back them up winning again.

There is fivefold acca bet insurance available at online betting site Ladbrokes. The popular bookmaker will give you back a free bet if one of your selections legs you down in 5+fold or bigger bet. Selections can be made from across Europe’s top league and the maximum free bet refund is £25. New customers registering an account with online betting site Ladbrokes can get up to a free £100 bet as a welcome bonus.

Aston Villa v Manchester City Betting Tips

After their strong start to the new season, how quickly Aston Villa are facing big struggles for the term. Back to back 3-0 defeats for the season has left Paul Lambert’s men struggling and they have failed to score in four of the last five Premier League matches against City. The exception to that was a 3-2 win for the Villains over the Citizens at Villa Park last term. Aston Villa are not a high scoring side as it is, and they are likely to be facing problems in breaking down the Citizens. Villa have been a well organised side this season, but the problem is, is that if their defence can’t stand up to what is in front of them, then they have no response.

They have netted just the one goal in their last three matches played now. They have played seven competitive matches this season and have failed to score in four of those. That having been said it will be worth looking over 2.5 goals because four of the last five meetings between these two have gone over. That is a good option up for grabs in this meeting at a price of 8/11 with online bookmaker Ladbrokes. With Villa running out a high price of 6/1 for the three points, then they are not going to have a lot of backers. The Villains have posted a mix bag of results at home this season, W1 D1 L1 from their three so far. They have conceded at a rate of 1.3 goals per at home so far and that is more than enough for City to topple them.

City have scored an average of 2.3 goals per game on the road this season, so should be bankable for the win. Sergio Aguero is trading at a price of 4/5 in the anytime goalscorer market, and he has scored 10 goals in his last 12 matches outside of the Etihad in the top flight. City are now undefeated in their last three games and have won two of their three away games this season. Their scoring is there, having netted in five of their six games and on top of that, in four of those six games, they have scored the opening goal of the game. While they have been a bit slow on pace this season, there should be enough here to go for Man City/Man City half time/full time bet.

Aston Villa v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 8/15, Draw 3/1, Aston Villa 11/2

Aston Villa v Manchester City Predictions

Villa have just looked so exposed in the last two weeks against top opposition and they should suffer a similar outcome this weekend in terms of defeat. City have conceded in each of their last five games, but they have the forward power to outscore Villa, who have only scored more than one goal in a single game, once this season.

Fernandinho (Manchester City)

Manchester City v Roma Betting Preview

This is City’s chance to get themselves into the qualification race in Group E. However, they will need to tread carefully here, because defeat could leave them facing a huge uphill battle to get themselves to the knockout stage after Roma won their opening match. The Citizens go as strong 8/13 favourites to win the match.

Place a pre-match accumulator of 3 or more selections from Champions League matches, and if your bet wins, then online betting site Bet365 will add a bonus of up to 100%. This provides great coverage on some of Europe’s top football matches and there is 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance too and new customers can get up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus.

Manchester City v Roma Betting Tips

The odds may be a bit imbalanced on this one, as Roma are in decent shape this season. The Citizens of course are looking to bounce back from their loss on Match Day One against Bayern Munich and really have to take advantage of home soil here. The last time that they met Italian opposition was in 2011/12 when Aleksander Kolarov netted an equalizer against Napoli to maintain their unbeaten home record against Serie A sides (W2 D2 L0). However, their last win against an Italian team was in the 1978/79 UEFA Cup with the Citizens beating AC Milan on aggregate.

The Citizens haven’t won their opening home fixture in three previous attempts. Frank Lampard is on fire as he took his tally to four goals in three games on the weekend, he is a 21/10 shot in he anytime goalscorer market, with the favourite, not surprisingly is Sergio Aguero at 10/11. City have great options going forward and with eleven goals in their last two matches, perhaps they are just starting to click into a new gear. It could make the option of Both Teams To Score a pretty viable option in this one as they take on Roma for the first time ever.

The Italians have won all six of their games played this season, including their opening five in Serie A, where they have scored nine goals and conceded just one. They have Daniele De Rossi available after being suspended for match day one, and the Giallorossi netted a 5-1 home win over CSKA Moscow on match day one. They have been to England 14 times before and have remarkably only managed to come away with one victory. That was at Liverpool in the 2000/01 UEFA Cup, but they still lost the tie 2-1 on aggregate. The last time they were there they settled for a 1-1 draw at Fulham in the 2009/10 Europa League group stage.

Manchester City v Roma Betting Odds

Man City 8/13, Draw 11/4, Roma 9/2

Manchester City v Roma Predictions

While Roma have lost their previous three visits to Manchester, they could be a good shot for a point here. They have been good at the back this season and could challenge City here, especially if the Premier League outfit can’t find a high gear. It is likely to be closer than the odds suggest, so just shoot for Both Teams To Score for a 4/6  at online bookmaker Bet365.

Milner - Dzeko (Manchester City)

Hull v Manchester City Betting Preview

Apart from Chelsea’s dominance, it has been a pretty strange start to the Premier League season, and Manchester City have uncharacteristically been struggling to put wins on the board. They head into the weekend without a win in their last three (D2 L1), so can they produce some kind of response? Hull aren’t a side who have found their winning touch this season, but may be able to produce a home point against the Citizens.

Can the Tigers frustrate the Citizens? There is good coverage at online betting site Bet365 in case the game ends in a 0-0 draw. Should the game end without a goal being scored, Bet365 will refund lost stakes on the Correct Score, Scorecast and Half Time/Full Time markets. With superb live in play betting and a free £50 to take when placing your first mobile bet with them, there is fantastic football betting coverage to enjoy with them.

Hull v Manchester City Betting Tips

Hull have only lost one of their three Premier League home matches against Manchester City. So are the Tigers good for a point on the weekend? Steve Bruce’s men have posted a W1 D3 L1 record for the season and have taken two draws from their two home matches this season. Hull were busy on transfer deadline day in boosting their squad, but it hasn’t quite all clicked into place for them, and that may take some time. Their last two games have ended in a 2-2 draw, blowing leads against West Ham and Newcastle. They clearly haven’t learned how to close out games yet, and their usual staunch defence isn’t quite there at the moment.

So given their performances this season, in which they haven’t really faced anyone of any note, it is feasible that they can take a point. However, they played 80 minutes of this fixture last season against the ten men of the Citizens and still managed to lose 2-0. But the Citizens aren’t clicking as the powerhouse that they should be, so punters may see some value in the home side at the KC Stadium. Hull are starting to turn the concern in their ability to score goals (although it coming at the expense of their defence) and Abel Hernandez and Nikica Jelavic are 3/1 shots for the Tigers in the anytime goalscorer market.

With a shock home loss against Stoke and then back to back draws against Arsenal and Chelsea, Manuel Pellegrini’s men are in search of a much needed win. They don’t look to be as free-flowing and prolific as they should be, but still when Sergio Aguero is on the pitch, you always have a chance of racking up some goals. Aguero is even money in the anytime goalscorer market. There have only been six Premier League meeting between them so far and City hold a W3 D2 L1 record against the Tigers. So no real signs that they are going to lose this one, but they need to step up a gear if they are going to launch a title challenge. They have looked as if they have been short of pace all season so far. Maybe their 7-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup will wake them up.

Hull v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 4/7, Draw 3/1, Hull 5/1

Hull v Manchester City Predictions

Not the easiest of games for the Citizens here, but their resilience in not losing against Arsenal and Chelsea, grabbing late equalisers in both, has to count for something. They aren’t likely to lose this because that would mean playing as badly as they did against Stoke, which isn’t likely to happen. City won both meetings 2-0 last season, so plump for a 2-0 Correct Score  or just slot City in for the win in an acca.

Bet Victor

All eyes will be on the Etihad on Sunday evening as early season pace-setters Chelsea head north to defend their 100% start to the new season. The Blues, fired along by the goals of Diego Costa with Cesc Fabregas pulling the strings behind him, are underdogs for the game, but they are carrying a lot of confidence and form into the game.

Chelsea have won all of their opening four games to the season, and each of them by a two goal margin. The Blues won their last league trip to the Etihad 1-0 thanks to some tactical brilliance by Jose Mourinho. Will he go defensive again, or will he unleash his attacking beast to try and crush their biggest title rival?

Manchester City have hit a sticky patch of form, but have only failed to score in two of their last 71 home league matches. Sergio Aguero is a man in form and will be hoping to outshine Chelsea’s goal machine Diego Costa on Sunday. There is big firepower in the ranks of both, so the goals are expected to come at the Etihad.

If either side produces a comeback win after falling behind in the game, then online betting site Bet Victor will refund losing stakes on the correct score, first/last/anytime goalscorer market, spincast/scorecast and half time/full time markets. Tremendous promotion and new customers can get up to a free £25 bet as a welcome bonus too.

Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Preview

The big clash of the Premier League weekend without a shadow of a doubt. The Citizens really need to play catch up and make in-roads to Chelsea’s hugely positive start to the new season. The bookmakers have City as only narrow favourites for this one, but they know that they will face a tough challenge to produce three points.

Online betting site Ladbrokes have a huge promotion running for this one. They are offering money back if Manchester City beat Chelsea. This incredible offer applies to bets placed on the Correct Score, First Goalscorer and Scorecast markets. New customers registering an account with Ladbrokes can get up to a free £100 bet as a welcome bonus.

Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Tips

Tough season for Manuel Pellegrini’s men and they have to show some mettle in this one. They are without a win in their last three games played, one of those being a shock defeat at the Etihad against Stoke in the Premier League. That was just the second home game in their last 71 league matches in which they failed to score. The other one in that run was last season’s 1-0 home loss against Chelsea. City lost 1-0 at bayern Munich in the Champions League in the week, and with it being a late goal conceded, it may have knocked the wind out of them. That loss followed a late rescued point for the Citizens at Arsenal last weekend.

Sergio Aguero has scored ten goals in his last 12 Premier League matches at the Etihad, and he has also assisted four more in that run. He is always backable in the anytime goalscorer market and it should be a great showdown between him and Chelsea’s Diego Costa for the headlines in this one. City haven’t looked at their sharpest this term, looking a bit slow and mechanically deliberate rather than inspired. That is reflected in Yaya Toure not having had a hand in any goal for the club this season. With four points dropped already in the league title race compared to Chelsea, they need a response. City have lost just one of the last six at home against the Blues in all competition.

Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas. What a pair of signings by Jose Mourinho. Fabregas is looking for his seventh consecutive Premier League match in a row with an assist, while Diego Costa has already netted seven goals in his four matches this season. He has to be worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market for Sunday’s clash. The Blues also have a trend going this season in that they have won all of their games by a two goal margin this season. They were frustrated in a 1-1 draw against Schalke in the Champions League during the week though, will City have learned anything from that?

Jose Mourinho won a huge tactical battle last season at the Etihad in their victory. Chelsea have won more away games in the Premier League at Man City than at any other club. The Blues took a massive 16 points from a possible 18 against the other top four sides last season, including the two wins over City. Both teams to score seems a probable outcome in this one as well as the game going over 2.5 goals. Chelsea are a different beast this season, looking to attack with menace. Can City withstand them?

Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Odds

Man City 7/5, Chelsea 2/1, Draw 12/5

Manchester City v Chelsea Predictions

A great early season title clash on the cards, between the two pre-season favourites to be crowned Champions. Chelsea have looked ominous, and while City are stuttering, there is value in them at home. They have to get something together at some point and they do have an immense Premier League home record. Maybe worth shading the home side with Ladbrokes, as this will be the first time that we have seen the new look Chelsea come against a title contender this term.

William Hill

It is Manchester City’s turn to try and take down one of the top German sides on Wednesday night, as they face up to Bayern Munich in the Champions League. They will have already seen Arsenal lose 2-0 in Germany against Borussia Dortmund, and it perhaps just highlights how tough of a task that this is going to be for Manuel Pellegrini’s men.

City aren’t carrying great form, losing against Stoke and then rescuing a late draw against Arsenal in their last two Premier League matches. After being handed another tough Champions League group stage draw, they will want to try and avoid defeat at the Allianz Arena so that they aren’t immediately on the back foot in the qualification chase.

Last season the Citizens had to make the trip to the Allianz Arena to face Pep Guardiola’s Bayern, and after falling behind by two goals in the game, it looked as if it was going to be a long night for the Premier League club. But to their credit, they pulled off a shock comeback against the German giants, taking a 3-2 win over them. With Bayern winning just one of their last five home European matches against English sides, can City pull off a repeat?

Four matches they have played against each other in the competition, and the head to head stands even at two wins each. City will be looking to Sergio Aguero to deliver and he is in immense away-scoring form, having netted nine in his last eleven away from the Etihad. Backed up by Edin Dzeko and Stefan Jovetic, City have goals in them. So do Bayern of course with the likes of Arjen Robben, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller.

Both Teams To Score in Bayern Munich v Manchester City betting was 13/20, but new customers registering an account with online betting site William Hill can get a hugely enhanced price boost of 3/1 on both teams to find the back of the net.

Head to the bookmaker and use the special code GOALS3 on the new account, placing your first stake on the account on the yes option for Both Teams To Score in the game. You will be paid out at the regular odds if it happens, but then William Hill will adjust your winnings to reflect a return of a massive 3/1 quote.

There is extra great coverage at William Hill who cover matches with their great 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance, First Goalscorer insurance and 6+fold Acca insurance as well.
