Champions League – Manchester City vs Sevilla Betting Preview

Manchester City seem to have recovered from their dip in form that saw them lose three times in the space of four matches with three straight victories including a match in which they came from behind to win against Borussia Monchengladbach. They will be without both David Silva and Sergio Aguero for this game as they were on the weekend but after the way Wilfried Bony and Raheem Sterling linked up on the weekend to put five past Bournemouth, we should see them both start in what is a crucial game for City.

City’s concern going into this match will rest with their defence as they have now conceded in seven consecutive matches. City’s defence had looked strong at the start of the season but since losing Kompany to injury in the match against Juventus they have looked poor. Vincent Kompany was on the bench for City on the weekend and we could see him return to the starting line-up for this match which would give a huge lift to the home side.

Sevilla have had a disappointing start to their campaign and currently sit in 13th position which is poor considering they finished in 5th last season. Sevilla have been very strong at home over the last few years and they have started that way once again as demonstrated by their 2-1 victory over Barcelona this month but it is their away form that is very worrying going into this fixture. They have failed to register a win in their last nine away matches and in the last five, they have managed to score just two goals.

30/09/15 CHA Monchengladbach vs Manchester City 1 : 2
26/09/15 BPL Tottenham vs Manchester City 4 : 1
22/09/15 CAP Sunderland vs Manchester City 1 : 4

Manchester City are in very strong form at the moment after winning four of their last five games with the remaining game being a disappointing loss to Tottenham. They seemed to have bounced back from that disappointment with three straight wins including 5-1 and 6-1 victories over Bournemouth and Newcastle respectively but the worrying thing for them will be that they have conceded in their last five matches.

Sevilla Recent Form

17/10/15 PRI Eibar vs Sevilla 1 : 1
03/10/15 PRI Sevilla vs Barcelona 2 : 1
30/09/15 CHA Juventus vs Sevilla 2 : 0
26/09/15 PRI Sevilla vs Rayo Vallecano 3 : 2
23/09/15 PRI Las Palmas vs Sevilla 2 : 0

Sevilla have been very inconsistent recently with wins over both Barcelona and Rayo Vallecano but then they have also lost to Juventus and Las Palmas within their last five fixtures.

Manchester City Team News:

Manchester City will be without main men Sergio Aguero and David Silva for this match as well as Samir Nasri who suffered a hamstring injury against Bournemouth on the weekend. Vincent Kompany was on the bench for the weekend’s game and could well return in time for this match to pair up with Mangala, a partnership which was very solid at the start of the season.

Sevilla Team News:

Sevilla will be missing Gael Kakuta, Sergio Escudero and Daniel Carrico in this match whilst Fernando Llorente will undergo a late fitness test.

My banker for this game is for Manchester City to win, they have looked frightening going forward all season and with the likely return of Vincent Kompany to the back-line, I think that they will be much stronger defensively. But it is not just City’s strengths that make me feel that this is good value but also the fact that Sevilla are poor on the road, they have failed to win any of their last nine away matches.

In the league they have faced 17th,18th and 19th all on the road and have only managed to pick up two points in the process. When they come up against stronger opponents away from home such as Juventus, Roma and Barcelona they have lost all three matches.

For my saver I have tried to find some value and I was leaning towards a correct score of 2-0 but with the uncertainty that Kompany will start, I have decided to reject that and go for a first goal scorer bet. Wilfried Bony’s chance has come as Aguero has been ruled out for over a month and he took his first opportunity against Bournemouth on the weekend by marking his first start in a month with a brace.

I expect him to capitalize on this opportunity again here as he has said he is feeling strong at the minute and I have him down to get the first goal in this match.
