Manchester City vs. Atletico Madrid Betting Prediction

It’s tough to beat Man City. It’s really tough to beat them on their pitch at Etihad. But although Atletico won’t beat the Sky Blues straight up on Tuesday, they should play well enough to win on the handicap.

Manchester City has had moments of brilliance. The draw versus Crystal Palace, though, calls into question City’s form. Also, the Sky Blues should have beaten Burnley by at least 3 goals. So we must think about the goal in this match. If Pep’s squad holds Atletico to 1 goal or zero goals, and wins the match by 1, they will have done their job.

Manchester City can pull off the Premier and CL double. Pep won’t have his team go all out to win the first leg by more than a goal not with Liverpool having cut Man City’s EPL lead to a single point and a match on April 10 versus the rival Reds. City wins on the moneyline. Atletico wins on the handicap.
