They must be feeling dreadful after what happened on Wednesday evening. They got knocked out of the Champions League by the Spurs, even though they won the Wednesday’s game. The score was 4:3 and thanks to the away goal rule, Tottenham got a place in the semifinal. The worst thing is that Man City scored a goal late in the stoppage time, but VAR then destroyed their dreams in what was one of the most anticlimactic moments of this season.

Obviously, Man City feel disappointed but they mustn’t let that affect their future performances. After all, they’re still in the competition for the Premier League title. They have two points less than Liverpool but have played one game less than the table leader. This means that if Man City win on Saturday, they will get to the top of the table.

Unfortunately for them, Man City have really tough matches coming their way. After the game with Tottenham, they will play their city rival, Man United. Therefore, beating the Spurs is of utmost importance for them. But, will our Manchester City vs Tottenham prediction go in favor of the home side? Keep on reading to find out!


Just a few weeks ago, the Spurs were in some serious problems. But, then their new stadium was opened and they started playing very well again. Right now, they’re in the semifinal of the Champions League and are among top 4 in the Premier League.

On the bright side, they don’t have too tough schedule before the end of the season. Actually, their toughest match in the Premier League till the end is the one taking place on Saturday.
