The Champions League is back on Tuesday. At this point, we’re at the quarterfinal stage, where we’ll see four really interesting duels, one of which is the clash between Tottenham and Manchester City which will take place at the newly-opened Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in North London. Who’ll be the happier team when the referee blows the final whistle? Find out in our Tottenham vs Manchester City prediction and betting tips!
We’ll start this Tottenham vs Manchester City prediction by talking about their new stadium. After playing at the Wembley for months, their new venue is finally finished. Actually, last Wednesday, they had the grand opening of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. After the big ceremony, the Spurs played their first-ever game at the new stadium. The match in question was the one against Crystal Palace, which they won 2:0.
The win seems to come at the best possible moment because the Spurs needed a confidence boost after a couple of poor results in the Premier League. Before the Crystal Palace game, they lost to Liverpool, Southampton, and Chelsea, while also playing draw with Arsenal.
Playing at home will certainly give them a lot of motivation in the game with Man City, but what about their quality. After all, it’s the player quality that wins big matches like these. So, do they have what it takes to beat the number one favorite for winning the Champions League? I honestly doubt it, because the last time they did such a thing was nearly three years ago.
Before we go to Tottenham vs Manchester City betting tips we need to talk a bit about the form of the visitors. And it’s been sensational. Manchester City have won every single match in all competitions since late January. And they play in the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, and the Champions League.
Pep Guardiola and his boys plan to win all of those competitions and judging by their form, such a scenario does seem possible. They have an impressive squad with some really top-class players. Actually, there’s a number of excellent players in this team, so pointing out their best player is almost impossible.
Sergio Aguero is their best scorer, but he might be missed in the first leg of the doubleheader because he’s carrying an injury. Even without him in the team, Man City do look capable of doing well against Tottenham. With players like Sterling, Sane, Silva, and the rest, they seem capable of beating any team on the planet, even if the game is played at a recently-opened stadium.

Tottenham vs Manchester City Prediction
The quality and good form are on the side of the visiting team. On the other hand, the hosts are putting their hopes in the support of their fans. Will it be enough to win another game at their new stadium?
I doubt it; Man City are just too powerful. They might not win this match, but I’d be really surprised if they lost it. Actually, a draw seems like the most plausible outcome of this game.
