Manchester City v CSKA Moscow Preview, Champions League, Tuesday 5th November 2013

Manchester City head into this game on tuesday night fully aware that all 3pts would just about be enough to send them through to the knock-out stages of the tournament and with home advantage where they recently smashed 7 goals past Norwich City in the Premiership over the weekend everything looks in their favour and all City fans will be celebrating come the full time whistle.

CSKA Moscow could only hold on to their 1-0 lead a fortnight ago over in Russia in the reverse fixture of this match for 2 minutes before Sergio Aguero grabbed the equaliser and the Argentinian hitman scored again 8 minutes later to make it 1-2 which was enough for Manuel Pellegrini’s side to return home back in Manchester with all 3pts and with it any hope CSKA Moscow might of had of qualification through to the next phase of this tournament pretty much gone.

CSKA Moscow have it all to do here in this game and must win if they are to keep any slim hopes of qualification alive, as such we should be in for a very exciting game which will hopefully again result in a few goals scored.

Manchester City v CSKA Moscow Team News

Manchester City Team News:

Vincent Kompany, Javia Garcia and Jovetic are all unavailable for the hosts as each player continues recovery from respective injury problems, other than these three players though manager Manuel Pellegrini has a full squad to choose from which looks likely to consist of a 4-2-3-1 formation with Negredo leading the attack up front with support in behind coming from Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Jesus Navas.

Striker Sergio Aguero is the clubs current top goalscorer this season at the moment having scored 8.

CSKA Moscow Team News:

Midfielder Alan Dzagoev is the only casualty for the visitors as the player continues recovery from a thigh muscle strain and manager Leonid Slutski will have pretty much a full squad to choose his starting eleven from for this game. 4-2-3-1 is the likely formation with either Musa or Doumbia leading the attack up front with support in midfield coming from Tosic, Honda and Zuber.

Striker, Seydou Doumbia is the clubs current top goalscorer so far this season with 6.

Manchester City v CSKA Moscow Match Betting Odds Market.

Manchester City are the clear odds on favourites to win this game on tuesday night, with the online bookmakers only offering a best price of 1/5 with Stan James (£10 Free Bets for New Customers) for Manuel Pellegrini’s side to add another 3pts to their tally.

The Draw would not be good enough for CSKA Moscow as they really need to win this game, but I can see a few punters getting on this game to finish all square at a current best price of 13/2 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) as those odds do represent vaule.

CSKA Moscow have seemed to turn the corner on the domestic front and head into this game unbeaten in their last three matches and although this is a huge ask to win this game at this level shocks do and can happen and their current best price of 16/1 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) does seem a little overpriced.

CSKA Moscow v Manchester City Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Manchester City have a real chance to put one foot into the next round of this tournament with victory on tuesday night and after their emphatic display at the Etihad Stadium over the weekend against Norwich City in which they won 7-0 it is difficult to see them not winning this game.

However, their price is no value at all as at this level shock results can happen and CSKA Moscow are certainly not an easy side to beat as their current price of 16/1 suggests and I expect this game to be a lot closer than the online bookmakers are suggesting.

The goal stats suggest at least a few goals to be scored and as such the goals market does seem to be the best place to concentrate on for this game, with betting markets like Both Teams to Score YES, Over 2.5 Goals, and Anytime Goalscorers all providing at least some value as I do think CSKA Moscow have at least one goal in them on tuesday night.
