Manchester City Prediction – Can Manchester City win three on trot?

Tuesday night’s hosts, Manchester City, hold a 3-point cushion at the top of Group C over 2nd placed Dinamo Zagreb ahead of Matchday 3 and having won their opening two matches in the group, Pep Clotet’s side will be confident they can extend their winning start at the Etihad Stadium here.

Overall results have been generally impressive as usual for Manchester City as they’ve won 8 of their last 10 matches in all competitions, apart from two glaring defeats in the Premier League to Norwich City 3-2 and a 2-0 defeat to Wolves, the latter being a loss on home turf.

Manchester City have shone on the Champions League stage without making the final step to being crowned champions yet as they’ve won 9 of their last 11 ties overall in this competition, which includes winning their last 3 matches on the trot with victories over Tottenham, Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Zagreb.

Switch to results at the Etihad Stadium and City have won their last 5 home ties on the trot with wins against Shakhtar Donetsk 6-0, Hoffenheim 2-1, Schalke 04 7-0, Tottenham 4-3 and a 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb.

Atalanta Prediction – Can Atalanta put a spanner in City’s plans?

The Italian visitors have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 6 matches overall in all competitions as they make their way over to Manchester for Matchday 3 to take on the current Premier League title holders at the Etihad Stadium.

That loss came in the shape of a 2-1 defeat at home to Shakhtar Donetsk on Matchday 2 of this season’s Champions League and indeed, followed a heavy 4-0 loss away at Dinamo Zagreb in their opening match in Group C, so they’ll be desperate to set the record straight in tonight’s clash with Manchester City.

Although Atalanta have made a solid start to their new Serie A campaign, losing just 1 of their opening 8 matches of the new Italian top flight season, the visitors are experiencing their first ever taste of the harsh environment that is Champions League football and they’ve already been dealt back-to-back defeats.

This obviously doesn’t bode well for this upcoming trip to Manchester, but nevertheless, they’re capable of contributing to the over 2.5 goals part of this pick as 15 of their last 16 matches in all competitions have beaten the over 2.5 goals mark which is incredible.


Key-Facts – Manchester City v Atalanta

  • Manchester City have won/Over 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 at home
  • Manchester City have won their last 5 matches at home in the CL
  • 15 of Atalanta’s last 16 matches in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals


Betting Tips Verdict
