Manchester City vs Juventus Betting Tip and Predictions. In the one of the most interesting matches in the group phase of UEFA Champions League, Manchester City host Juventus at Etihad.
Manchester City started this season fantastic in Premier league. After five rounds they are standing at the top of the table with 5 wins. They have very good attack, but their defence is more impressive. City didn’t conceded a single goal this season. Team atmosphere is at the very high level and everyone expect another good performance against one of the main candidate for the first position in this group.
“We are not thinking where we are going to get to in this year’s Champions League, we are just thinking about tomorrow. We want to qualify to the last 16 and after that you must see the draw, the most important thing is tomorrow.” – said their coach Pellegrini said for the official Manchester City website.
Juventus started this season very poor in Serie A and after three rounds they are still without win (0-1-2). For the team who dominate in Italian football for years and who are one of the main candidate for the title this season, those results are terrible. This match could be a chance for team from Turin to make some changes in their performance and start playing better.
“We need to stop the rot and a positive result here could completely change our situation. Tomorrow’s is the first of six group matches and our aim is to reach the knockout stages.” – said Massimiliano Allegri.

Manchester City vs Juventus Betting Tip and Predictions
Both teams want to start this competition with the positive result. I expect that both will be focused on defence and try to secure their net. Man City have an advantage of home field and they are closer to get all three points, but I expect tough match between Manchester City vs Juventus and maximum two goals.
