Manchester City v Viktoria Plzen Preview, Champions League, Wednesday 27th November 2013

Manchester City can guarantee their place in the final 16 of the Champions League with at least a draw on Wednesday night when playing host against the group’s whipping boys Viktoria Plzen and after their complete destruction of Tottenham Hotspur 6-0 at the Etihad Stadium over the weekend the question many people will be asking is just how many will Manuel Pellegrini’s side score ?

Viktoria Plzen have already been eliminated from the tournament having lost all four of their opening group matches and although the pressure is off the side from the Czech Republic it really would come as a huge shock to see them getting anything from this game.

Manchester City v Viktoria Plzen Team News

Manchester City Team News:

The hosts will be without Captain Vincent Kompany as he continues recovery from a thigh problem, David Silva is also unavailable along with Jovetic as both players receive treatment for a calf problems. 4-2-3-1 will be the likely formation and could see Edin Dzeko leading the attack up front in place of a rested Sergio Aguero.

Striker Sergio Aguero is the clubs current top goalscorer this season having scored an impressive 17 times in all competitions.

Viktoria Plzen Team News:

The visitors will be without the services of David Limbersky as he recovers from illness but other than him manager Pavel Vrba has an otherwise full squad to choose his lineup from. 4-2-3-1 will be the likely formation which will see Stanislav Tecl leading the attack up front with support from midfield being provided by Horava and Horvath.

Striker, Stanislav Tecl is the clubs current top goalscorer so far this season having scored 8 times in all competitions.

Manchester City v Viktoria Plzen Match Betting Odds Market.

Manchester City are the clear odds on favourites to win this game Wednesday night, with the online bookmakers only offering a best price of 2/11 with Ladbrokes (£30 Free Bets for New Customers) which obviously offers us the punters no value at all, unless your thinking of having a few grand on.

The Draw is unlikely to see any takers with the way Manchester City have been playing recently despite a best price available of 8/1 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers).

Viktoria Plzen have not won a game in the group and have only scored 2 goals in their 4 games played, so pretty much impossible to see them causing a shock victory in this one which their current odds of 20/1 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) clearly reflects.

Manchester City v Viktoria Plzen Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Manchester City seem to be gathering pace as we enter the Christmas period and with home advantage where they made fellow Premiership rivals Tottenham Hotspur look like a side full of part-timers by beating them 6-0 this could very easily end up finishing in a similar score-line despite Sergio Aguero probably being handed a well deserved night off.

Viktoria Plzen have had a bit of a reality check during this tournament and with them having already been eliminated from the group it’s difficult to see any of the players involved on Wednesday night really being up for this game on a cold night in Manchester.

Difficult to find some value in this game as with the online bookmakers having the hosts priced up at very short odds to win this game we are forced to look at other betting markets with the half time/full time, Asian Handicap and Anytime Goalscorers looking to be the best places to concentrate on.
