Feb 24: Champions League Betting Preview


MAN CITY took no chances with team selection on Sunday and it’s put them under pressure not to lose in Ukraine tonight.

The club were accused of disrespecting the FA Cup as their kids crashed 5-1 at Chelsea but it’s the least of Manuel Pellegrini’s worries.

He happily gave up the chance of a quadruple in the knowledge he’s being replaced by Pep Guardiola in the summer.

Since the announcement City’s form has dipped and the Chelsea humbling followed home defeats to Leicester and Spurs.

Despite their form slump City are favourites with Dynamo Kiev not having played since early December.

City are a best 13-10 with William Hill with Dynamo 5-2 at bet365 and the draw 12-5 with Betfred – and Pellegrini would be happy to take a stalemate back to the Etihad.

Kiev are no mugs and knocked out Porto as they finished second in Chelsea’s Group G. In Andriy Yarmolenko they have a classy striker who has every chance of hitting the target. Yarmolenko is 11-4 at Paddy Power to net while Sergio Aguero – eight in eight games despite City’s woes  – is 19-5 at 888sport to break the deadlock.

Tonight’s other tie sees PSV entertain Atletico Madrid and it’s the first time a Dutch side have featured in the knockout stage for nine years. PSV are on a run of eight wins but will be without top scorer Luuk de Jong as they tackle a Madrid side who are hot favourites at 20-23 with McBookie.

However, the Dutch deserve respect after beating Man United, Wolfsburg and CSKA Moscow at home in the groups and they could stay alive by going to Spain on level terms. With de Jong out the best bet could be under 2.5 goals at 8-13 with McBookie as Atletico give little away.

    Might be worth checking who needs one yellow card for a suspension tonight.

    Not sure if anybody saw last night, but when Barca went 2-0 up. Pique went over to the bench and had a conversation with Enrique, two minutes later he goes and hacks Danny Welbeck down and gets a yellow, misses the return leg in Spain. Clever tactic though as he’ll have a clean stake for the remaining games.
