CHAMPS LEAGUE STICK OR TWIST

STICK OR TWIST

10th April 2018

We have seen some bad prices in our time, but 9/2 man City to qualify for the Champions League next round has to be one of the worst ever seen. Look, we aren't going to back Liverpool at 1/6 to qualify either but any other side should be 1/20!

Which City will turn up - the side that had lost just once in the League - until the weekend defeat to Man United and defeat to Liverpool in the first leg - or the side that ran away with the League Cup and will win the Premier League by a country mile?

City battered Liverpool 5-0 back in September in one of the best Premier League results of the season - a repeat would easily see them make the last four of the Champions League.

Looking at both recent defeats we can see that City's players just couldn't believe what was happening - but there's no doubt on their game the manchester side are head and shoulders above both Liverpool and Manchester United.

We hav eno doubt City will beat Liverpool tonight - and at 1/2 that is probably the best bet to have. It is certainly better value than 9/2 to qualify.

Klopp has a dilemma. Liverpool can't defend and his side performed above average to keep a clean sheat in the first leg. They can't do that for 90 minutes if they defend. But, the obvious tactic is to defend until City score. That would be suicide.

We actually think will go for that golden fourth goal which will mean City need five? You can count on one hand the number of sides who have come back from that. So City are 9/2 to qualify but its only 8/13 both sides to score?

City will win, but Liverpool will qualify end of.
