Champions League: Manchester City vs AS Roma Betting Preview

In the one of the most more interesting matches today, Manchester City will host AS Roma at Etihad Stadium.


Manchester City have started this season in Premier League very solid and after 6th rounds they are standing at the 3rd position. They won the title last season in Premier League and title is again one of their main goals this season, but they want to improve their performance in Champions League.

Last season Barca defeated them in the 1/8 finals, so City want to improve their performance in Champions League this season and make better result this season in that competition.

In the first match in Group E, Manchester City have played very good at Allianz Arena against Bayern Munich, but they were unlucky and conceded a goal in 90 minute.

City need a win today if they want to keep their chances to go through.

Manchester City will be without Nasri (4/0 m), while Nastasić (0/0 d), Jovetić (3/2 f) and Fernando (3/0 m) are all doubtful.

AS Roma have started this season amazing – five consecutive wins in Serie and the great performance in the first match in Group E against CSKA Moscow when they smashed them 5-1.

The visitors will be without Astori (2/0 d), De Rossi (3/0 m), Strootman (0/0 m), Castán (1/0 d), while Iturbe (1/0 f) and the first goalkeeper De Sanctis (5/0 gk) are both doubtful, but the most probably De Sanctis will be on the goal line.

Home team is a favorite to win this one, but they are under pressure because of loss in the first match. Both teams are very efficient in attack and I expect at least three goals tonight.

Manchester City vs AS Roma Betting Tip: over 2.5 goals @ 1.65 (Bet365)
