Manchester City and Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Manchester City have made a perfect start to the new season and can get their Champions League title defence off to a winning start against Crvena Zvezda, although they have conceded in each of their last three games and the Serbian champions can get on the scoresheet.

Manchester City 4-1

Reason for tip

Manchester City won all six of their Champions League home matches last season, although they did concede in two of their three group-stage games on their own patch, so this should be a comfortable win for Pep Guardiola’s side, but a clean-sheet may be beyond them.

Manchester City vs Crvena Zvezda Predictions

  • Manchester City won all six of their Champions League home matches last season
  • The Citizens have conceded in each of their last three matches
  • All three of Julian Alvarez’s Champions League goals for City have come on home soil

City unstoppable on all fronts

Manchester City landed their first Champions League title last season, part of a treble-winning campaign for Pep Guardiola’s side, and they have started 2023/24 in the same dominant mood, winning all five of their Premier League games to date.

City were victorious in all six of their home matches in last season’s Champions League and they have not tasted defeat at the Etihad in the competition since a 2-1 loss to Lyon in September 2018.

Clean sheets not so easy to come by for defending champions

While City have been a winning machine of late, they have tended to concede goals, as they have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last three matches, while they also conceded in two of their three home games during last season’s Champions League group stage.

Serbian champions Crvena Zvezda have scored in all seven of their competitive matches to date this term and they could represent good value to find the back of the net in Manchester.

Alvarez becoming a firm fixture for City

Argentine striker Julian Alvarez has started all five of City’s Premier League games to date this term, scoring twice, and he could find his way onto the scoresheet against Crvena Zvezda as well.

All three of Alvarez’s Champions League goals last season came at the Etihad, including in the group stage victories over Sevilla and Copenhagen, and he is more than capable of adding to that tally this midweek.
