Tottenham Hotspur +300 / Manchester City -111 / Draw +240
Tottenham will host Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg. The match is set to be player at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium where Tottenham should get a huge amount of support.
Tottenham won their last match as they beat Crystal Palace. While the win was impressive, Tottenham have struggled over the past few weeks. Since the start of March, Tottenham have only won 1 game in the Premier League and the team looks to be lacking confidence as they head into this clash. The win against Crystal Palace would have given the team confidence but considering this match is against Manchester City, the team will know the challenge at hand.
On the other side of the coin, Manchester City have looked dominant over the past few months. Manchester City played in the FA Cup semifinal over the weekend where the beat Brighton 1-0. Manchester City played very well as they had 71% of the ball and completed 13 shots. Gabriel Jesus was the star performer for Manchester City as he scored the only goal of the match. The Sky Blues are the favourites to win the FA Cup, Premier League and Champions League and judging by recent wins, the team will enter this match filled with confidence.
Tottenham and Manchester City last played each other in October where the Sky Blues won 1-0 away from home. Riyad Mahrez scored the only goal of the match for Manchester City.
Tottenham have struggled over the past few weeks and the team is looking very fragile as they enter this match. This is the second match for Tottenham in this stadium and while the team should receive great support, they lack the quality to compete with Manchester City. Manchester City have the stronger team and the better form so I see them winning this match away from home.
