Joleon Lescott believes the Blues might have to win all four of the remaining Uefa Champions League group matches if they are to reach the knockout stages.
And City’s better partner Paddy Power believe the first of those wins is achievable have priced the English champions at 3/4 to come away with all three points.
Ajax, the Dutch champions, are 7/2 and the draw is priced up at 11/4.
Edin Dzeko is on a decent run of scoring form having scored twice against West Brom at the weekend. He also scored late on a Fulham and gave City the lead in the 3-2 loss to Real Madrid in their opening Group D Champions League fixture. The Bosnian is 9/2 to get the first goal and 6/5 to score at anytime against Ajax.
Robert Mancini opted to rest Sergio Aguero last weekend on his return from international duty but after two games and one goal with Argentina he could well play some part in the game.
Last season’s leading scorer in the Premier League is 4/1 together with compatriot Carlos Tevez to get the game’s opening goal and even money to score at anytime over 90 minutes.
Mario Balotelli slotted home a 90th minute penalty to earn City a 1-1 draw against Borussia Dortmund at the Etihad Stadium.
But City will want to avoid a repeat against an Ajax side that are propping up the group after a 1-0 defeat away to Borussia Dortmund and a 4-1 home loss to Real Madrid last time.
A 1-1 draw is priced at 13-2 with Paddy Power while it’s 33/1 that Balotelli scores in a 1-1 draw in Paddy Power’s Scorecast betting.
City have scored in both their Champions League games so far and every Premier League game too and the Blues to nab exactly one goal is 2/1 in the number of team goals market while exactly two goals trades at 9/4.
City can also take heart from Ajax’s home record against English clubs in European competition – which reads three losses and one draw in four games.
Paddy Power are offering even money that there are exactly two or three goals scored in the match while four or more goals is trading at 15-8 in the total goals market.
