Manchester City Match Betting News
Manchester City have endured a bit of a roller coaster campaign so far under manager Pep Guardiola but they have most certainly managed to improve over the past few weeks and are currently on a run of four victories in their last five matches.
Although City may well be out of the Premier League title race already, they can be considered one of the dark horses to claim the Champions League title due to the presence of serial winner Guardiola and it will be interesting to see how the Citizens perform in the knockout stages of the competition.
The Premier League side have been handed an encounter against French outfit Monaco in the Round of 16 and it goes without saying that the match will be a tough test for the Citizens. Vincent Kompany and Gabriel Jesus are the only two injury concerns for City ahead of the game.
Monaco Match Betting News
Monaco have been gradually making progress over the past few years following the arrival of Leonardo Jardim and it would be fair to state that Les Monégasques are one of the most entertaining teams to watch in Europe at the moment, having already scored a stunning 76 goals in just 26 Ligue 1 matches so far this season.
Jardim’s men are currently occupying top spot in Ligue 1 and they also impressed in the Champions League, topping a very tricky looking group.
While not many think Monaco will be able to put up a sustained bid for the Champions League, the French side do not have any reason to underestimate themselves and the Ligue 1 leaders could deliver a shock to Manchester City on Tuesday. Guido Marcelo Carrillo and Gabriel Boschilia are out with injury ahead of the game.
Manchester City vs Monaco Match Prediction
Manchester City and Monaco have never squared off against each other in the Champions League and it is anybody’s guess as to how the match on Tuesday will turn out.
City perhaps might just be able to claim the victory at home due to their strong side but it would be a surprise if Monaco fail to find the back of the net to take something home for the return leg.
