Manchester City to conquer Europe

Manchester City to conquer Europe

Manchester City is looking to be a step closer for a European title if they win the second leg of their quarter-finals against Bayern Munich. Man City dominated Bayern during their first leg, giving them more confidence to win the series. However, Bayern will not go easy on Man City as the are expected to go all-out for this match. As they come into the second leg, Man City needs to protect their 3-0 lead in the series. Bayern on the other hand remains to be positive that they can overturn their results, and eventually win the series. This meeting will be on April 20, 2023, at 3:00 AM (GMT+8), with Bayern Munich as hosts.

It seems like the hosts are unlucky going against the visitors in the contest, as they lost their last two matches against the visitors. One of these two defeats is from the first leg of this series, a result they do not want in this match. That record is as many defeats as they experienced during their first five games in the league. As for the visitors, they are doing well against German opponents, losing only one from their last 20 games. Additionally, the visitors has a good momentum coming into this game. They are from three wins across all competitions without conceding a single goal.

When it comes to their domestic league, Man City is currently at the second of the standings. It is not a shock though as they have been impressive all season across all competitions. They even brought this run in the Champions League, making them one of the favorites for the title. During their last match, they were able to win against Leicester City into a yet dominating result. They won with a score line of 3-1, and are hoping for the same result in this important match. Man City is coming into this match with hopes of finally conquer Europe, as they have stepped up big time this season. Erling Haaland have been leading Man City this season, especially during the first leg. He was on his best form on their last match, the same form Man City needs to enter the next round.

It is a surprise that Phil Foden back for their squad after his appendix surgery, but expect him to just be on the bench. Fortunately for them, they no longer have fresh injury concerns for this crucial game.

Bayern on the other hand is leading their domestic league, sitting at the top of Bundesliga league table. However, despite sitting at the top, they have been battling with inconsistencies this season. This is one of the reasons why Bayern was dominated by Man City on their last match. They are actually from a disappointing 1-1 draw against TSG Hoffenheim on their last match. With that, they are a team who needs to double their efforts for this match. They are down by three goals in this important match. Although it is unfortunate, they need to go all-out in this match, as it will cost them their early elimination. They have yet to show their best selves under Thomas Tuchel. This is their chance to prove that they are a team who is as powerful as before.

Sadio Mane will be returning in this match after he was dropped on their last match. However, long-term absentees like Manuel Neuer, Lucas Hernandez, and other injured guys like Paul Wanner, and Gabriel Marusic are all out.

Prediction:

Manchester City (1.0)
Odds: -0.83
Manchester City to win on aggregate (4-1)
