We’ll look to extend our winning streak to five, as Manchester City needs to be backed against Celtic. Pep Guardiola will rotate his starting XI, but key players such as Sergio Aguero are likely to be featured. The away side has lost the chance to advance from the group, so Brendan Rodgers is likely to make changes to his side as well.


City’s defeat against Chelsea came as a no surprise to us, but the fashion it went down, in the end, was surprising. Aguero lost the plot with a ridiculous challenge on David Luiz, which resulted in a well-deserved four-match suspension. Also, Fernandinho followed suit with an altercation in the aftermath of the Aguero challenge. Today Guardiola is likely to rotate his side, but Aguero is likely to start now that he has to serve a four-game suspension in the Premier League.

In the Celtic dugout, Rodgers has problems, as his defense was breached three times in Motherwell on Saturday. He does get some good news, as Erik Sviatchenko returns to central defense and striker Leigh Griffiths comes back from an illness.

Manchester City – Celtic prediction

Naturally, City will pose more threat than the giants from Motherwell, whom the Celtic were unable to handle in front of their net. City’s -1.5 is a fine bet here and the best odds are available with bet365 @ EVENS.
