Champions LeagueLive Betting: Crucial Fight for Manchester City vs Barcelona

It's make or break for Manchester City's season in tonight's round of 16 second leg against Barcelona (19:45 UK time).

Millions of eyes will be set to Barcelona's Camp Nou tonight where the home team host Manchester City for the second leg of the round of 16 (19:45 UK time). In the first leg Barcelona managed to squeeze a 1-2 win at the Etihad Stadium – will we see a similar scenario tonight in favor of the guests?

Manchester City Against all Odds

Manchester City are facing a very difficult battle against the Spanish giants at their home. Statistically, the odds are even grimmer for City that has lost five matches in the last 10 they played in all competitions. City is coming to Barcelona beaten after losing 1-0 to bottom scrapers Burnley last Sunday, something which gave title-runners Chelsea a good 6 point advantage despite a draw against Southampton.

Both City and coach Manuel Pellegrini have a lot to prove tonight, they're coming in as underdogs but desperate times might bring out the best in them.


Barcelona have a good record against English teams, especially at Camp Nou: The last time they lost was in 2007, a 2-1 loss against Liverpool. With Manchester City's condition, it doesn't seem like the Anglo-Spanish rivalry is going to get a new interesting chapter today.

But that also has to do with Barcelona's great condition – they have won all of their Champions League games this season but one, and they currently have the hold on the top of the La Liga, even if only one point separates them from rivals Real Madrid.

Betting Odds and Markets

While Barcelona is the big favorite tonight at Winner Sports (2/5 to win against City's 13/2 in full time result), it's probable that City won't go down without a fight – a positive bet on both teams to score could also be good (4/7). Winner will have full live coverage of all Champions League games tonight with in-play and pre-match markets – tune-in and max your experience with a wager.
