Tottenham vs Manchester City betting tips, predictions and preview for tonight’s Champions League quarter final first leg tie at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Spurs will be desperate to get a first leg lead ahead of the return tie at the Etihad next week.
City are still competing on three fronts this season and a tough run of games means Pep needs to keep rotating his side.
Spurs will be desperate to get a result in just the second game at their new home.
Man City still concede too many goals away from home in the Champions League.
Mauricio Pochettino will have to try and stop Man City’s tremendous attacking talents tonight but it is hard to see how Spurs will stop City scoring. After a poor run of five Premier League matches without a win they got back to winning ways when beating Palace 2-0 on the night they moved into the new stadium, and we think they can avoid defeat tonight.
So far in this competition Spurs have got better as it has gone on – a terrible start looked set to end their campaign before it had even started, but home wins against PSV and Inter and a point in Barcelona saw them through. They were convincing 3-0 winners in the home leg of their last 16 tie against Borussia Dortmund before completing the job with a 1-0 win in Germany.
Performances like that could see them really trouble this Manchester City side tonight.
City came back to win 3-2 in the first leg of their last 16 tie in Schalke before blowing them away in the second leg, and I’m predicting a similar chain of events here. Tottenham might be good value for a bet tonight but it is hard to see how they’ll get through the tie as a whole.
Man City have conceded in four of their last five away Champions League games, including two goals in each of their last two.
The first of our Tottenham vs Manchester City predictions for tonight is Tottenham to win OR DRAW the match and the odds are Evens with MoPlay.
Tottenham to win – 16/5
Draw – 14/5
Man City to win – 10/11
Sergio Aguero has trained ahead of this game but it remains to be seen whether he’s fit enough to start tonight. If he does, we’ll have himself and Harry Kane on the pitch – two of the best strikers in the world.
Although Tottenham are not fully reliant on Kane to score goals, they depend on him a lot more than City do Aguero so it wouldn’t be the end of the world if the Argentine wasn’t playing. Gabriel Jesus has done well since coming into the side. For our anytime goalscorer tip on the match though, we’re going to go with another man having an amazing season in Raheem Sterling.
The England winger continues to improve and scored the winner in the last round against Schalke. His fellow Englishman Dele Alli is another name worth a bet to score tonight, but Sterling is the selection at odds of 7/4 with 888Sport. Harry Kane is best odds 7/4 to score with Unibet.
The last of tonight’s Spurs vs Manchester City betting tips is going to be a correct score and we’re backing the 2-2 draw in this one.
Spurs have been brilliant in this competition in recent matches and have the added incentive of it being the first Champions League match at their new home tonight. They’ll want to go to the Etihad with a chance of winning the tie and could learn from Liverpool’s performance against Manchester City at this stage last season, where they won 3-1 at Anfield.
However, this Guardiola side look even better than last season and two away goals would please the manager. It could be that Man City have to settle for a draw here and then finish the job back home next week, so the 2-2 draw is our score prediction for tonight’s Tottenham vs Man City clash. The best odds are 13/1 with Bet Victor.
