Manchester City

Manchester City made their way to the Champions League quarter finals in one breath. The English club easily won the group stage, where they took first place in the company of Atalanta, Shakhtar and Dynamo Zagreb. It is noteworthy that the "townspeople" have never lost, being seven points ahead of the nearest pursuer.

In the 1/8 finals of the main club tournament in Europe, the draw brought City to Real Madrid. In this confrontation, Pep Guardiola proved to be stronger. The Blues won two victories, with the same score 2:1. It should be noted that the time difference between the first and second games was more than five months.

MC finished the English Premier League tournament in second position, releasing the champion in the middle of the championship. For 38 rounds, the Mancunians were able to win 26 victories and ended three duels in peace. The team's attack showed itself brilliantly, hitting the gates of the opponents 102 times.

The best snipers of the team were Sterling (20 goals) and Aguero (16). The Sky Blue finished the Premier League tournament with two dry wins over Watford (4: 0) and Norwich (5: 0).

Sergio Aguero will not be able to take part in today's match, who has not yet coped with a knee injury.

Lyon took second place in the group with Zenit, Benfica and RB Leipzig, with whom they have a chance to play in the final. For six matches of the first stage of the Champions League, the team showed good football and the will to win. The French club recorded two wins and draws each, which was enough to reach the spring stage.

At the 1/8 finals stage, the “weavers” got into rivals “Juventus”, which underestimated the strength of the “children”. In the first game, the Italians lost 0:1 and the victory in the return leg five months later with a score of 2:1 was in favor of Olympic.

The "aristocrats" ended the last football season in France with the final of the Cup of the country, where only in a penalty shootout they lost to PSG. The League 1 championship ended at around 28 rounds, following which Rudy Garcia's men finished seventh. The White-Blue-Reds won 11 victories and seven world victories in the tournament, while showing the third result in the attack: 42 goals scored, 16 of which scored by Dembele and Delai scored nine.

In today's match, the entrance to the field of Denaier, Cornet and Tete is in question.


For Manchester City, today's rival is an impregnable fortress, which has never been beaten. Lyon have already accomplished a feat, as few could predict that the French club will reach such a stage of the Champions League.

Most likely, we are waiting for indoor football performed by Olimpik, hoping for a counterattack. "MC" will go ahead, because this is their strong point and the absence of Aguero is unlikely to save their opponent.

In our opinion, Guardiola will be able to set the team up for this duel and City will achieve their first full-time victory in history. We do not expect defeat, which is what we propose to play a bet on.

Our prediction is that Manchester City will win + total under 3.5 goals, and we bet on this on the line of BC 1xBet with odds of 2.10
