Manchester City v Atletico Madrid Betting Preview  

Manchester City maintained their Premier League advantage with a routine win over Burnley (0-2). The Cityzens have have a 1-point advantage over Liverpool, heading in next weekend's direct encounter with the Reds. Pep Guardiola's men have tasted defeat just once since they lost to RB Leipzig in their final group-stage game back in December, a 2-3 home loss to Tottenham. As to the Champions League, in their last-16 tie Man City thumped Sporting CP 5-0 in Lisbon and recorded a 0-0 draw at Etihad in the return match.

Atletico Madrid hit four goals past Alaves on Saturday night and they now sit 2nd in the La Liga standings, level on points with Barcelona and Sevilla, and 12 points behind real Madrid. The Colchoneros have won six matches in a row in all competitions. Diego Simeone's men have already enjoyed one fruitful trip to Manchester in this edition of the Champions League, as they won 1-0 at Old Trafford to steer themselves through to the quarter-finals of the competition. Anyway, that was only their second victory in the last 6 Champions League outings.

Best Odds

The Cityzens are favorite to record a win at Etihad Stadium, with Betfred pricing them at 4/11. The draw is available at 17/4 with BetVictor while the away win is backable at 10/1 with Ladbrokes.

    Team News & Probable Line-Ups

    Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Laporte, Stones, Zinchenko; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Foden, Sterling

    Pep Guardiola has many absentees in defense. Ruben Dias is out with a hamstring injury, Kyle Walker will serve the last of his three-game suspension while John Stones was only fit enough for a spot on the bench last time out. Riyad Mahrez and Bernanrdo Silva were named on the bench at Burnley but they could feature from the off into a rotated XI. Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden should complete the front trio, while Rodri and Kevin De Bruyne will retain their berth in the middle of the park.

    Atletico Madrid (3-5-2): Oblak; Savic, Hermoso, Reinildo; Llorente, De Paul, Kondogbia, Koke, Lodi; Griezmann, Felix

    Yannick Carrasco also serves his third and last match suspension. The other two missing players are Jose Jimenez and Hector Herrera, both outh through injury. Diego Simeone is likely to play with a 3-5-2 starting system, with Stefan Savic, Mario Hermoso and Reinildo forming the three man backline. Up front, Joao Felix and Antoine Griezmann should get the nod over Luis Suarez while Rodrigo De Paul, Koke and Geoffrey Kondogbia will anchor the midfield. The likes of Renan Lodi and Marcos Llorente will play as wing backs. Matheus Cunha, Daniel Wass, Thomas Lemar and Sime Vrsaljko all returned to the matchday squad after injuries but will be initially benched.

    Our Manchester City v Atletico Madrid Predictions    

    Both teams are in good form in all competitions, but Manchester City look almost unplayable at some stages. Atletico have been shaky at the back, having kept just six clean sheets in all competitions in 2022. The Cityzens have all the tools to exploit Los Rojiblancos' defensive weaknesses, hence we back Manchester City to win. 2-0 is our recommended bet in the Correct Score market. Considering Diego Simeone's men style of play, we expect the visitors to be carded many times.
