MAN CITY showed their class against Real Madrid last week and should take another step towards Champions League glory on Saturday.
Pep Guardiola's men probably expected to be lining up a quarter-final showdown with Juventus but the Italians were shocked by Lyon.
The French progressed on away goals despite a double from Cristiano Ronaldo putting them under serious pressure.
Lyon out up the shutters after going 2-1 behind and showed admirable defensive qualities.
Rudi Garcia's men showed they can be tough to break down and in last month's French League Cup Final they blanked PSG for 120 minutes before losing on penalties.
This of course is a one-off tie in Portugal and that slightly favours the underdog but I'm backing City to get the job done as long as they don't underestimate their rivals.
And having lost at home to Lyon in the group stage two years ago they should be aware of their ability.
City are no bigger than 1-4 to win in 90 minutes and it looks extremely short. Lyon are 12-1 at William Hill and 6-1 with McBookie to reach the last four.
Rather than back a straight City win look at City and both teams to score at 15-8 with McBookie.
Lyon have plenty of attacking talent with the likes of ex-Celt Moussa Dembele and former Man United man Memphis Depay.
If you're looking for a scorer wait until teams are revealed as only one of them might start. To score Dembele is 31-10 with McBookie while Depay is 10-3.
As good as Dembele and Depay are they wouldn't get a starting slot for City and remember Lyon only finished seventh in Ligue 1.
We all know about City's attack and it's potent even without the injured Sergio Aguero.
I correctly tipped Raheem Sterling to score first against Real and he is 19-5 at 888sport to repeat the feat.
Kevin de Bruyne, City's penalty taker and outstanding performer this season, will be well backed at 6-1 with Unibet.
