Monaco and Man City set for another crazy crash in the French Riviera

Man City and Monaco produced one of the most compelling Champions League clashes in recent years when they played out an absolute belter in Manchester last month. Pep Guardiola’s troops eventually triumphed 5-3 in a match that was drenched in drama, goals and moments of individual brilliance. The teams now locked horns for a second time in Monaco, and if it’s even half as engrossing as the Etihad encounter, football fans are in store for an absolute treat.

  • Monaco have won 20 of their 23 matches on home soil this season.
  • Monaco have scored an astonishing 123 goals so far in 2016/17.
  • Man City have just 1 win from their previous 6 Champions League away games

Monaco’s immense home form can see them progress

Man City may have a two goal cushion, but Monaco’s home form this season has been stunning. The French outfit have won 20 and lost only one of their 23 matches, hammering home 72 goals in the process.

On top of that Leonardo Jardin’s in-form troops have not been defeated at home in the Champions League since facing Arsenal two years ago (they progressed anyway), winning six and drawing two of their subsequent eight games, and they certainly catch the eye at 4/1 to qualify.

City’s recent away form has been decent, yet against the top teams it’s nothing to write home about, and they’re likely to be up against it on Wednesday. The Citizens have lost at Barcelona, Man Utd, Everton, Liverpool and Tottenham without even scoring, while their only Champions League victory in six on the road was at Steaua Bucharest.

Still, they have no need to panic in France, and if they execute Pep’s plan then they could progress with a victory, with a victory by a one goal margin available at 19/5 (Stan James).

To Qualify Odds

A Glut Of Goals

Anyone who backed over 7.5 goals in the first-leg would have been laughing their way to the bank, can this outcome occur again? Quite possibly, with Coral offering odds of 25/1.

Monaco are Europe’s top goalscorers with an astonishing 123 goals, and they last failed to score at home in late 2015, stretching back 36 matches. The hosts are priced at 5/1 to be leading after 15 minutes, and look worth pondering at 5/2 to score 3+ goals in front of their own fans for the 14th time this season, whereas a home win and over 3.5 goals catches the eye at 19/5 (Betfair).

Les Monegasques’ defence may have been solid at home, but it’s still difficult to see them keeping a clean sheet, especially against a side who belted five past them last month. With this in mind a correct score bet of 3-1 (17/1 Bet Victor) could provide a healthy return, which would see them go through on the away goals rule.

In terms of plucking out a player in the first goalscorer it really is a case of take your pick. Falcao, who was denied a hat-trick in the first leg, can be backed at 43/10 with Uni Bet, with Kelechi Iheanacho and Valere Germain available at 11/2 and 13/2 respectively. Sergio Aguero is an obvious pick for City at 4/1, although the in-form Leroy Sane can’t be overlooked at 10/1.

11 of their home games have gone over 3.5 goals
