Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Both teams have scored in four of both Red Star Belgrade’s and Manchester City’s five Champions League group games and the visitors are expected to name a heavily-rotated squad after securing top spot. Pep Guardiola’s side are without a clean sheet in six competitive games but have the strength in depth to bag a few against the leaky home defence.

Manchester City 3-1

Reason for tip

Manchester City have scored exactly three goals in all five Champions League group games this season and those given a chance on Wednesday will be eager to impress the manager. Three of these five games have ended 3-1, including in the reverse fixture against Red Star Belgrade.

Crvena Zvezda vs Manchester City Predictions

  • Four of both these sides’ five Champions League group games this season have seen both teams score.
  • Manchester City are without a clean sheet in six successive games.
  • Manchester City have scored exactly three goals in all five Champions League group games this season.

Change expected for visiting side

Gameweek six takes us to Belgrade on Wednesday, where the Stadion Rajko Mitic presides over a dead-rubber of a game as Group G winners Manchester City visit a Red Star Belgrade side guaranteed to finish bottom of the group.

Erling Haaland missed the Cityzens’ win at Luton on Sunday and is almost certain to be left out for the trip to Serbia but he is unlikely to be the only change to the squad with top spot already wrapped up. We could see a raft of changes from Pep Guardiola, opening the door for Red Star Belgrade to have a real go at the reigning European champions.

Goals on the cards in Belgrade

The hosts may have picked up just one point from five games so far but they have regularly been a threat going forward, scoring in four of their five group games and even taking the lead at the Etihad in gameweek one. Their attackers will fancy their chances against what is likely to be an inexperienced back line, although their issues at the back should grant the visitors plenty of opportunities, too.

Barak Bakhar’s side have shipped 12 goals in five games so far and have conceded at least twice in all of them, including a 3-1 defeat in Manchester in September. Both of these sides have seen goals at both ends in four of their five group games so far and Manchester City have conceded in each of their last six in all competitions, so backing both teams to score is advised.

Cityzens can end group stage with perfect record

We are unlikely to see anything that could be considered a weak lineup from Guardiola, such is Manchester City’s strength in depth, but those that are given a chance will be eager to impress and have all the quality necessary to put the hosts to the sword.

They have scored exactly three goals in all five of their group games so far and have won 3-1 in three of those, so that looks a solid correct score prediction for Wednesday’s trip.
