Manchester City Barcelona betting prediction

Betting suggestion:

We doubt of a Barcelona victory in this match. If they keep their defensive woes, City would probably find a way to score at least once. And if Manchester City's quick transiitons work well they would certainly create a good number of goal chances.

Manchester City and Barcelona play at Etihad Stadium in a very important match of the last-16 of Champions League.
The team managed by Manuel Pellegrini comes to this match after two consecutive wins. In their last two matches they scored nine times which shows the offensive power of the english team. They are currently at the second place of Premier League with 55 points.
The spanish team comes to this important match after a home loss against Málaga (0-1) in La Liga. Anyway, we expect that Barcelona won't feel too much that unexpected loss into this important Champions League match. Barcelona is currently at the second place of La Liga with 56 points.
The head-to-head between this two teams is favouring the visitors. Barcelona has won their last two clashes.

Analysis Man City

The Citizens are known for their destructive power. They have quality in every department of the pitch and all together they form a very strong team.
The brazilian Fernando and Yaya Touré are the center midfielders of the team and Yaya Touré uses to drive the ball for many meters into the attack.
Into this match we expect a 4-4-2 formation from Manchester City and the two forwards might be Dzeko and Aguero. The argentinian has returned recently from injury, but his quality will br present in the pitch.
The home team will try to obtain a victory with a clean sheet because an away goal could make the difference in this kind of clashes. So, the match could be a little slow with both teams playing carefully.

Confirmed Lineup: Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Gaël Clichy, Fernando, Samir Nasri, James Milner, David Silva, Sergio Agüero, Edin Džeko.
Coach: Vincent Kompany, Martín Demichelis.

Analysis Barcelona

In the spanish formation it's obvious the talent and quality of their attackers. We all know what Messi and company can do in a match.
Iniesta is other of the main pieces from Luis Enrique's team. He is very important unblocking the opposite defences and finding the way throw the goal.
In the middle they should opt for Busquets, Rakitic and Iniesta. And the latter would probably be the one with more responabilities in the offensive hand of the game.
At the front, their reference is the uruguaian Suárez. The striker is very good combining with the other two offensive talents of the team: Messi and Neymar.
Any way, they should play a little carefully against a powerful team like Manchester City. Barcelona should not loose his concentration because Citizens are very strong exploring quick transitions.

Confirmed Lineup: Marc-André ter Stegen, Dani Alves, Jordi Alba, Gerard Piqué, Javier Mascherano, Sergio Busquets, Ivan Rakitić, Iniesta, Luis Suárez, Lionel Messi, Neymar.
