Atletico Madrid vs. Manchester City Betting Prediction
Facing Manchester City on the road, Atletico played about as well as anyone might expect. The home team in this gave up possession and shots but got out of the first leg down a single goal. Atletico has to be feeling good about their chances knowing the second leg is on their pitch. But although Atletico has a big shot to win this match, there’s another reason why Man City didn’t play as well in the first leg as one might expect.
City knew they had to face Liverpool a few days after taking on Atletico. The Sky Blues were more concerned about their 1-point lead over the Reds in the Premier League than dominating Atletico in the first leg.
Unless Atletico changes something, don’t expect a comeback. Man City is the much better team. They will show it on Wednesday. Don’t be surprised if Pep Guardiola’s squad wins this by 2 goals.
