The first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal match between Manchester City and Tottenham ended in the favor of Spurs. The score was 1:0, meaning that City need to go for a win on Wednesday evening. They’ll surely have a lot of support, considering that the game is played at the Etihad, but that’s not a guarantee they’ll manage it. To find out what’s gonna happen, make sure to read our Manchester City vs Tottenham prediction and betting tips!
The loss to Tottenham meant the end of their fabulous winning streak that started back in January. But, losing to Spurs seems not to have shaken them too much because Man City went and beat Crystal Palace only a few days after the Champions League game.
Their form is superb and their players are capable of beating almost any team on the planet. What’s got to worry them is that their schedule in the next couple of weeks is pretty difficult. After the Champions League with Tottenham, these two play again in the Premier League. And right after that match, City have to play the Manchester Derby.
This might make them feel nervous, but at the same time, they gotta be very motivated to beat Spurts on Wednesday. If they get knocked out of the Champions League, it could cause a domino effect and ruin their plans in other competitions as well. But, does this mean our Manchester City vs Tottenham prediction will go in the favor of the team from the north? You will have to keep on reading to find out!
Unlike Man City, Tottenham haven’t been that impressive in the last month or two. But, it seems their poor run has ended. They’ve won their previous three matches in a row, including the one played against City in the Champions League. However, all of those three games were played at their stadium, the newly-opened Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
On the road, they have been pretty bad this season. In fact, they’ve lost 6 out of 8 previous away matches in all competitions. Another bad news for their fans is that the Spurs are having some pretty big problems with injuries. There are a couple of players who are out due to injuries, while a few others are severely struggling with fitness. The worst of all is that they’ll probably be without their best player, Harry Kane, who’s injured his ankle.
But, this doesn’t necessarily mean that our Manchester City vs Tottenham betting tips must be in hosts’ favor. The thing is that Spurs are known as giant slayers, especially when the Champions League is concerned. This season, they won against such big teams as Borussia Dortmund, Inter, and, of course, Man City.

Manchester City vs Tottenham Prediction
Considering how many injured players the Spurs have, they really shouldn’t hope for much in this game. Plus, Man City have been sensational at the Etihad this season, winning every single home game in 2019. Because of all this, anything but an easy home win would be a big surprise.
