Manchester City are 5/6 with Paddy Power to claim their second away win of their Champions League when the face CSKA Moscow on Wednesday (5pm).
Manuel Pellegrini’s side beat Czech side Viktoria Plzen 0-3 in their opening Group D encounter and are 13/1 to beat the Russian side by the same scoreline, while City to score exactly three goals is 4/1 with the online firm.
The Citizens put last month’s contest beyond reach within a 10-minute spell in the second half with Edin Dzeko, Yaya Toure and City’s leading scorer Sergio Aguero doing the damage without reply and City are 21/10 to win to nil or 8/5 to keep a clean sheet in the Russian capital.
The visitors were drawing 0-0 at half-time before running out 0-3 winners in Plzen. A repeat of that scenario is 75/1 with Paddy Power in a game that will go a long way to deciding who finishes runners up to Group A outright favourites Bayern Munich.
Argentine international Aguero opened the scoring in City’s 3-1 league win at West Ham on Saturday night after 16 minutes before doubling the lead five minutes after half time. He’s 4/1 to score the opener against CSKA Moscow or 5/2 to score first for his side in Wednesday night’s clash.
The Citizens will have to be patient and rely on their neat passing game that was in evidence as Yaya Toure had 112 touches against the Hammers. The Ivorian has bagged four league goals this term and the Ivorian is 5/1 to score first for his team or 23/10 to score at anytime as he chases his second Champions League goal of the campaign.
David Silva’s has three assists and two goals in his five Premier League games and the Spaniard is 23/10 to score at anytime and add to his Saturday night strike, in a tournament that City are 18/1 to win outright with Paddy Power.
The last three fixtures have seen Pellegerini’s side involved in 3-1 (W2, L1) and its 12/1 that they run out winners by this scoreline against CSKA, while City are 11/4 to win with three or four total goals in the game.
The home side ran out 3-2 winners against Viktoria Plzen in St Petersburg after the game was moved from Moscow.
