Champions League: Monaco vs Manchester City Prediction and Betting Tip. In the second leg of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League, Monaco host Manchester City at The Stade Louis II. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Monaco vs Manchester City.
Monaco lost the first leg against Manchester City 5-3, but despite that fact they still have a chance to reach the Quarter-finals of Champions League, especially if they would play like in the first half-time of the 1st leg. Home side had a lead of 1-2 and missed the penalty, after that Manchester City woke up and scored 3 goals in 9 minutes for the finals 5-3. If home team repeat their best part of the performance from Manchester, they will have a decent chances to reach the next phase. Monaco play amazing this season, especially upfront their supporters, where they lost only once this season, so they hope that can make good result and go through. Big blow for home side will be the absence of their defender Kamil Glik, who is out due to suspension. Their top scorer Falcao and few other player were rested in the last Ligue 1 victory over Bordeaux 2-1, so they will be fresh for the important game against team from England.
Manchester City don’t shine in the first leg of the Champions League, but they’ve made an important victory of 5-3, so they believe that will be enough to go through. Visitors have to be very careful, because we have already seen this season in CL big come back when FC Barcelona smashed PSG 6-1 and qualified in the next phase of this competition. Meanwhile, Manchester City eliminated Middlesbrough in the Quarter-finals of FA Cup, so that victory will give them boost to make another good performance against Monaco. Their top scorer, Sergio Aguero, who hit the net twice in the first leg, is in the great form and he could be the most dangerous player for home defence. Except him, Leroy Sané has exploded this season and their recent form is very good, so home side could have many troubles in the defence.
Home side miss suspended Glik, while Boschilia and Carrillo. Their top scorer Falcao has some problems with injury, so he is doubtful, but the most probably he will be in the first eleven. On the other side, visitors will be without injured Gabriel Jesus.
