Manchester City have already qualified for the knockout phase of the Champions League having picked up three wins from their four matches so their home clash with Viktoria Plzen is effectively a dead rubber even though the Czech outfit can still sneak into third in Group D to drop into the Europa League.
Despite a lack of real incentive Manuel Pellegrini’s confident team are just 2/11 with Paddy Power to emerge triumphant and even though they are likely to make a few changes, City should still cruise to victory.
The rampant hosts have helped themselves to a whopping 18 goals in the last three home matches across all competitions and as Plzen have conceded on average three goals per game in their four group assignments, it’s hard not to fear for them here.
City certainly stand out at 6/5 in bet365′s handicaps when starting two goals back but it might be worth taking a bit more of a gamble on an actual scoreline with BetVictor’s 21/2 about a 4-0 success arguably the stand out bet.
