Atletico Madrid vs Manchester City Betting Preview
Manchester City dominated the first-leg clash but will only take a slender 1-0 lead into Wednesday's second-leg match in Madrid, courtesy of Kevin De Bruyne's goal that proved the difference at the Etihad Stadium last week. The Cityzens enter this game on the back of a hard-fought game against Liverpool as they had to settle for a 2-2 draw despite creating a host of chances. Pep Guardiola's men, who have lost only one game in the last 23 in all competitions, kept their single point advantage over the Reds in the Premier League standings, with 7 fixtures remaining.
Atletico Madrid suffered a disappointing 1-0 loss to Mallorca over the weekend - a secod straight defeat after previously winning six on the bounce in all competitions. A 1-0 deficit against Man City means that the tie is far from done and dusted. They defended deep having 10 players behind the ball for more than 75 minutes and this approach very nearly paid dividends on the night. The Rojiblancos have won each of their last three in the league at the Wanda Metropolitano, but not since October 2020 have Diego Simeone's men won a Champions League match at home - drawing four and losing three since. Attack has been out of form recently - they have only scored more than one goal in one of their last five games.
Diego Simeone's side are 4/1 underdog with William Hill to win the 2nd leg at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on Wednesday night. Man City are 41/50 chances with STS.co.uk to come away with another win. The draw is backable at 11/4 with Parimatch.
Looking for enhanced odds? Take a look below..
Atletico Madrid (3-5-2): Oblak; Savic, Felipe, Reinildo; Renan Lodi, Koke, Kondogbia, De Paul, Carrasco; Griezmann, Joao Felix
Hector Herrera and Jose Gimenez are both out through injury, while Yannick Carrasco is still suspended. The likes of Stefan Savic, Felipe and Reinildo should form the three man backline, with Ferreira Carrasco and Renan Lodi playing as wing backs. Up front, Joao Felix and Antoine Griezmann should be Simeone's choices, with Luis Suarez ready to play at some stage. Geoffrey Kondogbia, Koke and Rodrigo De Paul are expected to anchor the midfield.
Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Cancelo; Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Foden, Grealish
Gabriel Jesus is suspended for Wednesday's trip to the Spanish capital. Kyle Walker is now back from a European ban of his own, but Nathan Ake held the fort well at left-back in the first leg. Ruben Dias remains sidelined, meaning that Aymeric Laporte and John Stones will form the central defensive pair. In midfield, Ilkay Gundogan is favourite over Bernardo Silva for a berth alongside kevin De Bruyne and Rodri. Up front, Phil Foden is expected to start as false nine, flanked by Jack Grealish and Riyad Mahrez. Raheem Sterling provides a further option.
Atletico Madrid vs Manchester City Betting Tips
Pep Guardiola's men are playing the best football in Europe at the moment. They have lost just one of their last 21 matches in all competitions, and absolutely dominated the first meeting. We don't think home advantage will be a game changer for the Colchoneros. Hence, we are backing Manchester City to win this match and we are backing Phil Foden to get on the scoresheet after impressing in recent weeks (we correctly predicted "Man City + De Bruyne to score" in the first leg). Our choice in the Correct Score market is the "1-0 Man City to win".
