Champions League Tuesday Latest Tips PT 2

The draw is trading at 5/2 and that would probably be pretty decent for both sides but you would imagine City would really relish the opportunity to head to Camp Nou in the second leg with a full goal lead. Truth be told, the priority for City here is not conceding as giving Barcelona the away goal in the first leg really gives them a massive edge for the second fixture. 


Barcelona have always boasted a lot of attacking firepower and it probably goes without saying that they have the top three goalscoring selections to get the first goal of the fixture here. You’ll find Lionel Messi trading as the betting favourite with a 5/2 price tag right now.

However, he will probably play in a more withdrawn role and City’s robust physical presence might be able to slow down the Argentinian and draw him out of most of the important moves. 

The issue with that is by man-marking or double teaming Lionel Messi, you leave the door open for the likes of Neymar or Luis Suarez - who trade at 7/2 and 11/2, respectively. 

Sergio Aguero is priced at 11/2 as well and there is every chance that he might be named as a lone striker. Wilfried Bony is in the mix in the first goalscorer market at a 7/1 margin but it might be a better idea to stake some of your cash on Edin Dzeko to grab the opener at an 8/1 listing. He has the experience and cut-throat finishing ability that will likely see him get at least 2 or 3 good opportunities in this match. 

With Barcelona likely to pay so much attention to Sergio Aguero, this could open up the door for Dzeko to be the game-breaker and grab a 1-0 victory for Manchester City late on. City to win 1-0 rewards at an 11/1 margin.
