Champions League Qualifying: Man City vs. Steaua Bucharest OddsPublished August 24, 2016 by Sol FH
Man. City up 5-0 on aggregate after the first leg against Steaua Bucharest. Second leg action kicks-off tonight at 19:45 GMT.
Manchester City beat Steaua Bucharest last week 5-0, which actually ties their biggest ever win in European competitions. There is really little that the visitors from Bucharest can do tonight, needing to go into Etihad Stadium down by such a heavy toll, but there are a ton of attractive odds for tonight's match at bet365 Sports so punters should check out the lines.
Manchester City Head Coach will be letting go of goalkeeper Joe Hart in the coming weeks. The England keeper will start tonight's match for his first appearance this season, but Pep Guardiola says that he can look for another team to sign with. Guardiola is set on bringing Barcelona keeper Claudio Bravo, who will undergo a medical at Etihad Stadium.
City will be without full-back Bacary Sagna, Vincent Kompany, Ilkay Gundogan and Leroy Sane. Samir Nasri, Wilfried Bony, Eliaquim Mangala and Leroy Sane are not going to plat either, as they are not registered to do so tonight. There are still a lot of weapons at Guardiola's side and Steaua do not have a chance of advancing. Romanian sides have not been able to score a goal against Man City in the last three matches, but Manchester have scored eight goals over those games. Steaua have lost their last four matches against English teams.
Even with a huge lead, Guardiola is weary of Steaua Bucharest knowing that upsets like this have happened before. Just last night in the second leg of the match between Hapoel Be'er Sheva and Celtic, the Israeli side, down 5-2 after the first match came back to win 2-0 only missing out on making the Group Stage by a single goal.
bet365 Sports is offering incredible odds ahead of, and during tonight's match and punters should take a look at the action. City are at 1.20 to win, while Steaua are at 17.00. Imagine a win by Bucharest tonight and what a pay day that would mean. Live In-Play odds will be available throughout the match.
