All the best odds from Paddy Power ahead of City's Champions League clash with Barcelona...
Trailing Barcelona 2-0 after the first leg, Manuel Pellegrini will be happy to have his top goalscorer back fit. Sergio Aguero may not have scored against Wigan but getting a full game under his belt is a massive plus ahead of the trip to Spain. Aguero is well priced at 7/1 to score first and 15/8 to score anytime. If he does score in 90 minutes Paddy Power will refund losing correct score and goalscorer bets on this game. Essentially what that means is you can back Aguero to score first knowing you have the safety net that if he fails but scores later in the game you’ll get your money back.
Alvaro Negredo has scored five goals in seven European outings this season. He also scored against Barcelona when playing for Seville in La Liga last season. The Spaniard is 10/1 to score first and 3/1 to score anytime.
City win and correct score markets
Barcelona come into this game having lost two of their last three games. The reigning Spanish champions are struggling for top form and a City win at 9/2 is very much on the cards. City will need to win 2-0 at 30/1 to force extra-time with a 3-1 win at 40/1 giving them the win on away goals.
If you can’t pick a correct score but you do fancy a goalscorer then the wincast offers an alternative. Manchester City to win and Sergio Aguero to score anytime pays out at 15/2. Switch Yaya Toure in for Aguero and that price jumps to 12/1.
