Manchester City and Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

City have won 13 straight games at the Etihad, while Sevilla have struggled away in the Champions League and in their clashes with Premier League sides. City are set to rotate after booking a last 16 place, so back a Sevilla side who have notched in eight of their last nine to strike here.

Riyad Mahrez To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Mahrez has scored in two of his last three appearances at the Etihad, while he notched seven goals in 11 matches in Europe last season. With Haaland out, look to him as City’s biggest attacking threat.

Manchester City vs Sevilla Predictions

  • Sevilla have scored in eight of their last nine games
  • The visitors are winless in their last six trips in the Champions League
  • City have won their last 13 home games, scoring 54 times
  • Mahrez has scored in two of his last three home appearances

Sevilla should fear weakened City

It’s not been focused on too much, but City’s form has taken a bit of a turn of late. Their relentless start has slowed, with just two wins from their last six. Having drawn their last two European games 0-0, they’ve been a little underwhelming in the Champions League too.

However, City without Erling Haaland remain a force to be reckoned with. The Citizens are set to rotate having already wrapped up top spot in this group, but even a weakened City team should prove too strong for Sevilla.

City have records to protect

Manchester City have a fantastic record against Sevilla, having won all three of their Champions League matches against this week’s opponents, scoring nine times. The hosts have also won 26 of their 32 home games in this competition since Pep Guardiola took charge.

The City boss also has his own great record against Sevilla, as he has only lost two of his 13 games against them as a manager, winning nine. Over that time, his teams have averaged 2.5 goals per game against them scoring 33 goals in total.

City are on a 13-game winning run at the Etihad, scoring an incredible 54 goals during that stretch. They have enough attacking options to call upon to continue that great record. Riyad Mahrez stands out in particular, having scored in two of his last three at the Etihad and after hitting seven goals in 11 European games last term.

City to outscore visitors

Sevilla have lost two of their last three games and they’ve already been hammered by both City and Dortmund in this group. They should struggle against a City side who have a fantastic Etihad record to back up, especially considering that the visitors are winless in their last six away games in the Champions League.

Sevilla’s last win over an English side in the group stage of the Champions League was in November 2007. Since then, Sevilla are winless in the last seven such games, losing four. To the visitors’ credit, they have scored in eight of their last nine games, so back them to score in a defeat.

City’s brilliant scoring record at home should lead to a comfortable win, so back them to win 3-1.
