101 Great Goals prediction: Man City 3-2 Liverpool

Manchester City to beat Liverpool 3-2 is 16/1 with Bet365

The last few days have been a nightmare for Manchester City. Having been well beaten by Liverpool last Wednesday and then allowing a two-goal lead to slip in the Manchester derby to blow the chance of wrapping up the title.

The Reds perfectly executed their game plan in the first-leg as Jurgen Klopp’s heavy metal football saw his side run riot at Anfield.

Manchester City now require three goals on Tuesday just to keep the tie alive, Istanbul anyone?


Man City vs Liverpool: Who will win?

Manchester City are expected to win this game, they are 1/2 with the bookies.

Man City vs Liverpool quarter-final preview

Pep Guardiola’s side suffered bitter disappointment on Saturday as Manchester United managed to overturn a two-goal deficit to win 3-2 and cut City’s lead at the top to 13 points.

Whilst they remain on course to win the title, confidence will be low as they return to the Etihad to host Liverpool.

They now face the daunting prospect of out-scoring Klopp’s deadly attacking trio after being humiliated 3-0 in the first-leg.

The Reds are the highest scoring team in the competition this season netting an incredible 31 goals in just nine European fixtures.

On Saturday, they ensured they remain on course to finish in the top four this season after earning a valuable point in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.

Liverpool 3-0 Man City (Official first-leg video highlights)

Anfield was rocking…

Liverpool ran riot at Anfield to place one foot in the semi-finals of the Champions League through three first-half goals from Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Saido Mane.

Poor defending from Kyle Walker gifted the Reds an early lead as his scrambled clearance allowed Salah to easily convert from just a few yards out.

Oxlade-Chamberlain then produced one of the goals of the competition as he rocketed his effort beyond Ederson to send the Kop End into utter delirium.

Mane swiftly made it three as he turned in Salah’s cross out-jumping City’s back-line to wrap up proceedings on the night and potentially Liverpool’s place in the next round.

However, captain Jordan Henderson is suspended having accumulated five yellow cards.

Meanwhile, the trio of Emre Can, Joe Gomez and Adam Lallana are all set to remain on sidelines, whilst Alberto Moreno is a doubt.
