Liverpool vs Manchester City predictions and betting tips for the Champions League fixture on Wednesday 4th April with an anytime goalscorer tip and player to be shown a card tip included.
Liverpool and Manchester City have been two of the best sides in the Premier League so far this season. The Champions League knockout rounds have pitted the sides together with the prize of a place in the semi-finals of Europe’s most illustrious sporting competition. Whilst Liverpool have shown incredible attacking prowess under Jürgen Klopp over the last couple of years, this year has been different with the inclusion of Mohammed Salah. Meanwhile Pep Guardiola’s City squad have demolished almost everything in their path since August.
Although the Manchester club have been dominating domestically this year, European competitions such as the Champions League can often mean form goes out the window. This said, Manchester City will be coming off a dominating 3-1 win over the Reds’ Merseyside neighbours. They have also only failed to win two of their last none matches in all competitions. However, their last loss came in the Champions League against Basel in a meaningless second leg. We don’t think the electric Anfield atmosphere will be enough to put off Pep’s well regimented side and that’s why the first of our Liverpool vs Manchester City predictions is for City to win on the night. This is at 7/5 with Betfred.
The abundance of Liverpool’s attacking options has already been well documented this season with the likes of Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino involved for Klopp’s side. It has however been Salah who has been dominating the headlines with his movement, pace and finishing ability and this is expected to continue. The Egyptian already has 37 goals to his name in all competitions with six from eight games in the Champions League and this could continue on Wednesday night. Salah to score at anytime is 5/4 with Coral and is the second of tonight’s Liverpool vs Manchester City betting tips.
Loosely remaining with Liverpool’s right side, it could be the job of Fabian Delph to stop Salah from creating too many scoring opportunities. The former Aston Villa midfielder has been utilised as a full-bac in Guardiola’s system following Benjain Mendy’s injury in 2017 and he had made the spot his own before his injury. However, Jurgen Klopp might look at Delph as a rare weak point in Manchester City’s defence and may look to use Salah as a way to beat the new left back one-on-one, leaving Delph with minimal options. The odds on him getting booked at any time throughout the game are 15/8 with Betfair.
Paddy Power are offering your money back as a free bet in match if Salah scores at any time. They are also offering Liverpool to win on the night at 15/8 or Man City to win over 90 minutes at 13/10 with a draw at 12/5.
With both sides doing so well in front of goal this year you may be interested in their 13/8 price on over 3.5 goals or even 4/1 for over 4.5.
