The other game in Group F on match day 6 sees group leaders Manchester City taking on bottom club Hoffenheim as the betting tips continue at the Etihad Stadium.

Having been beaten by Lyon 2-1 at home on match day 1, Manchester City need at the very least a draw against Hoffenheim in order to progress to the knockout stage of the Champions League as they have a three point lead over second placed Lyon ahead of these final group games.

Following that early defeat though, Manchester City bounced back with three wins on the trot as they saw off Hoffenheim 2-1 away from home along with home and away wins over Shakhtar Donetsk in convincing 3-0 and 6-0 wins away and home respectively.

The Citizens avoided defeat in Lyon with a 2-2 draw so now everything is set up for the hosts to progress in style at home against a beleaguered Hoffenheim outfit. City will also be smarting from their 2-0 loss at Chelsea in the Premier League on the weekend, their first league defeat of the season.

Hoffenheim sit bottom of Group F with 3 points and have no chance of catching second placed Lyon who hold a four point cushion over them, but they could still make it to the Europa League if they beat Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night.

However, Hoffenheim’s brief history in the Champions League tells us that the German club have yet to win a match from their seven matches played overall, with four of these matches ending in defeat.

This season’s campaign have seen them draw against Shakhar Donetsk (away) as well as creditable home and away stalemates with second placed Lyon, but a result away at Manchester City looks well beyond their capabilities here.

The betting tips suggest backing a Manchester City win accompanied by goals.
