Roma v Man City Betting Tips and Prediction

Roma vs Manchester City predictions and football betting tips for tonight’s Champions League match where Man City need to win to have any chance of qualifying.

The busy festive period doesn’t let up this time of year as both Manchester City and Roma come together in Wednesday night’s Champions League clash.

With Bayern Munich already qualifying as the clear group winners with 12 points, Man City, Roma and CSKA Moscow all have a chance of making it through to the knock-out stages, with the winner of this fixture in particular looking likely to go through.


Roma v Man City Prediction:

Manuel Pellegrini’s star-studded side have once again been a disappointment in Europe this season. Five points from five games is simply not good enough for a side as good as City, but they can nevertheless make it through if they turn up on Wednesday night. If Premier League form is anything to go by, Manchester City have been strong domestically, winning on their last four outings. A mid-week victory against group leaders Bayern was also a promising result that could put Pellegrini’s side in good stead as they travel to Rome this week.

Rudi Garcia’s Roma have also been experiencing some strong league form, as they have now pretty much asserted themselves as the second best team in Italy, behind Juventus and ahead of the failing Milan sides. With Kevin Strootman returning to the side after a long spell on the side-lines, Garcia now has a chance to line the Dutchman up alongside the likes of Miralem Pjanic, Juan Iturbe and Mattia Destro in a strong looking attack.

Roma will however likely be without Brazilian international Maicon, so the Greek pairing of Kostas Manolas and Jose Holebas will continue their roles at full back. Newcastle’s on loan centre back, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, may also be a doubt despite starting last time out against Sassuolo.

For Manchester City, the worst news of all hit them last time out against Everton, with star-man Sergio Aguero being ruled out with a worrying knee ligament injury. His goals against Bayern were priceless and simply couldn’t be replicated by anyone else. The influential David Silva will also be out for Pellegrini, so a forward trio of Samir Nasri, Edin Dzeko and Stefan Jovetic may be on the cards for the Citizens.

As Manchester City struggled against Roma when they came to the Etihad, largely through the efforts of a 38 year old Francesco Totti, expect home advantage for the Romans to prove too much for Manuel Pellegrini’s floundering Champions League side.
