The best odds from Paddy Power ahead of City's trip to Munich...
With qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League already secured, Manchester City travel to Germany looking to maintain their 100% away record in this season’s competition.
Manuel Pelligrini’s side have won their two previous away games in Group D but they face a tough task against the defending champions Bayern Munich. The German side have a 100% record in the group stages, are unbeaten in their last 21 games in all competitions and come in to this game on the back of an 11 game winning streak. This will explain why Manchester City are priced at 11/2 to win this game. A price that’s worth backing.
Sergio Aguero added to his season total with a goal away to Southampton on Saturday, bringing him to 18 goals in 19 club games this season. The Argentine forward has only failed to score in six games this season and has hit the net in ten of Manchester City’s last twelve games. He can be backed at 8/1 to score first in this game but it’s the 11/5 on him to score anytime that can’t be ignored.
His strike partner Alvaro Negredo scored for City in the reverse fixture at the Etihad Stadium and if he starts he’s worth a look at 10/1 to score first and 11/4 to score anytime.
A draw at 10/3 would be a good result considering Bayern Munich’s form this season but there’s no doubting that Manchester City possess the talent to get the win. At 11/2 it won’t take a big bet to make a decent profit if they can turn the defending champions over.
