Manchester City Prediction

Manchester City were handed what could be a pivotal 1-0 loss away at tonight’s opponents, Tottenham at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in last week’s 1st leg, but no doubt Manchester City will fancy their chances of overhauling this one-goal deficit at their Etihad Stadium where The Citizens have been in supreme form, winning their last 12 matches on the trot in all competitions.

The impressive part of this 12-match winning streak is that the hosts have managed to rack up no fewer than nine clean sheets in the process, while scoring goals seemingly for fun and at will as they’ve amassed a total of 49 goals in these 12 matches – that’s better than 4 goals per game!

Goalscoring midfielders Bernardo Silva, David Silva and Mahrez have all chipped in with 6 goals apiece while forwards Aguero (19 goals), Sterling (17 goals), Sane (9 goals) and Jesus (7 goals) have plundered a total of 52 goals between them so far this season.


Key-Facts – Manchester City v Tottenham

  • Manchester City have won their last 12 home matches on the trot
  • Tottenham have lost 6 of their last 7 away matches in all competitions
  • Manchester City have amassed a total of 49 goals in their last 12 matches


Tottenham Prediction

It seems to be a case of ‘no Kane, no problem’ for Tottenham as they saw out a 1-0 home win over Manchester City in last week’s 1st leg of this quarter-final at their Tottenham Hotspur Stadium despite coveted striker Kane leaving the pitch on the hour mark through injury.

Tottenham then followed up that vital 1st leg victory in the Champions League with a resounding and convincing 4-0 home win against already-relegated Huddersfield Town, courtesy of a Lucas Moura hat-trick to take his goal tally to 10 goals.

That’s now three wins on the trot for Tottenham who also possess the likes of creative and influential midfielder Eriksen (6 goals) and Lamela (4 goals) along with forwards Son (12 goals) and Llorente, but it should be noted that all three of these recent wins for Spurs have been achieved on home turf.

Switch to recent results away from home for the north London club and the picture is not so rosy as the visitors have lost six of their last seven away matches in all competitions; their one highlight during this miserable sequence of results on the road was a 1-0 win at German club, Borussia Dortmund in the previous round.

Betting Tips Verdict

Tottenham’s fragile away form may well come back to haunt them here on Wednesday night when they’ll be up against a free-scoring and highly motivated Manchester City team who’ll be desperate to be in the hat for the semi-finals of this competition – we could therefore see some goals here.
