Consistency hasn’t been Manchester City’s strong point so far in 2015 but they’ve registered consecutive emphatic victories in the Premier League to build confidence ahead of the mouth watering Champions League showdown against Barcelona.
The Catalans giants meanwhile, ended a run of eleven straight wins at the weekend as they suffered a shock home defeat to Malaga and subsequently, it’s hard to draw clues from the recent form of the two teams.
However, the contest is simply too tough to call so the shrewd might avoid the match betting and concentrate on goal-related outcomes. Betfred’s 8/13 for both sides to score for example, looks like a banker, alongside Boylesports’ 3/4 for the clash to generate three or more goals and it’s 19/10 at 888Sport for the teams to strike at least four times between them.
At an identical price though, this time at bwin, a Sergio Aguero goal at any stage is the stand out wager. The Argentine front man has struck five times in the competition this term and with three in two domestically he’s in decent enough nick to suggest he can trouble the Barca rearguard.
Sergio Aguero to score at any time – 19/10 (bwin)
