Messi First Goal 9/2

18 February 2014

All the odds for a massive night of Champions League action

Both teams to score looks the most obvious bet as the first leg of Manchester City’s Champions League second-round tie against Barcelona promises to be a goal fest.

Barca have scored 27 goals in their last seven games in all competitions, while City’s six European games have produced 25 goals. 

It will come as no surprise then that we go odds-on that both teams notch at the Etihad but there’s some good value in the sub-markets, particularly under ‘Team Bets.’

Both teams to score in both halves looks worth a small stake at long odds and the hosts to break the deadlock is decent value at around even-money, while over 3.5 goals has promise at odds-against.

Ahead of what will be City’s first ever game in the knock-out stages of the Champions League, boss Manuel Pellegrini will be confident of a win given their home form in all competitions this term.

However, four-time winners Barcelona have Lionel Messi back to full fitness and amongst the goals again, making the Argentina international favourite to score first and 9/2 to score a brace.
