One of the pairs of 1/8 finals of the Champions League consists of Manchester City, England and Monaco, France. The first match will be held in Manchester on the 21 th of February and will start at 21:45 (GMT+2).
At first sight it may seem that Manchester City is an obvious favorite of the pair. But Monaco compared to Manchester City is an example of stability in this season. Frenchmen have ensured the first line after the 5 th round of the group stage, but Manchester City was losing the points in matches against Celtic and Borussia M. The team of Guardiola doesn’t impress anyone at the Championship of England either and there is a chance that the final battle will omit this club. We can hope that Monaco will be strong enough and we will see the French team at ¼ finals.
Bookmakers believe in a confident winning of the hosts. We do not fully agree with them. In our opinion the best bets on the match Manchester City-Monaco will be:
Monaco win with asian handicap (0) 4.0
both teams to score 1.75
