Sevilla vs Manchester City Betting Tips – 4/1 Bet Builder Prediction for Matchday 1

Champions League tips

Sevilla vs Manchester City bet builder tips and predictions for the first Champions League group stage matchday of the 2022/23 season.

Is this finally the year Manchester City wins the Champions League? If they are to do so, they’re going to need to put up a fight against the serial winners of the Europa League, Sevilla, with the Spanish giants proving to be a handful at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan stadium in Europe.

Once again, Pep Guardiola’s men are the favourites to win the Champions League with the bookmakers, you can get 5/2 with the SBK £30 welcome offer, which makes it the fourth season in a row they have been top of the pile. In this time, they’ve made it to only one final but failed to put down a marker on the competition as convincingly as rivals Liverpool, 14-time winners Real Madrid, while even Paris Saint-Germain have got to a final in the past few years too.

With Erling Haaland at the forefront of everything, however, this may finally be the year something happens for the champions of England.



Not only will Haaland likely register two shots on target, he probably scores too. So far, the Norwegian has netted 10 times in six Premier League games, put on record two consecutive hat-tricks, and proved to be nothing but a problem for every defender in England.

This part of the bet builder needs very little justification, and Haaland will likely start or replace Julian Alvarez at some stage in the game, and with it likely comes a barrage of shots on the Sevilla goal.

🎯 BETTING TIP: Haaland to have 2+ shots on target



For the first time this season, City saw a game end with under 2.5 goals at the weekend when they were held to a 1-1 draw at Villa Park against Aston Villa. At the same time, other than a 1-1 draw with Real Valladolid, Sevilla have also seen over 2.5 goals in each of their games with them stunningly losing to Almeria and Osasuna 2-1, while they were hammered 3-0 at home against Barcelona over the weekend.

What’s more, with the likes of Haaland on the field and Alvarez too, there’s very little to suggest over 2.5 goals won’t come in once again as it has done in eight of the 10 league games involving these two so far this campaign. At the same time, Sevilla still haven’t registered a win in La Liga and City will be licking their lips at the challenge of heading to a place where the home side have just lost 3-0.

⚽BETTING TIP: Over 2.5 goals in the match

Kevin De Bruyne always turns up in the Champions League. De Bruyne is already 21st on the list of most assists in Champions League history with 21, but given how Cesc Fabregas in 10th is only five ahead of him, it shows how close the Belgian is to making history.

De Bruyne also has 12 goals from 60 outings in Europe’s top competition and off the back of four assists and one goal in the six Premier League games so far, it seems like the creative midfielder is only going to carry on racking up goal contributions.

🤝BETTING TIP: De Bruyne to score or assist



What a start Alvarez has made to life in England. Unfortunately for the Argentine, he is going to end up playing second fiddle to Haaland for pretty much the entirety of his City career, but it is games like this where the striker can make his mark.

So far, Alvarez has scored twice in the Premier League after coming off the bench to replace Haaland in the 6-0 win over Nottingham Forest. Moreover, a goal against Liverpool means three goals in five games for City already after scoring in the Community Shield.

There is also a chance he starts this game in order to save Haaland’s legs a bit more for the weekend clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

🥅BETTING TIP: Alvarez to score anytime


Sevilla vs Manchester City Bet Builder Tip

  • Alvarez to score
  • De Bruyne to score or assist
  • Over 2.5 goals
  • Haaland 2 or more shots on target
