Manchester City vs Sevilla preview & prediction

Match preview

Manchester City will look to keep their unbeaten record in Group G of the Champions League when they host Sevilla at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.

As group winners, the Citizens have already qualified for the last 16, while the visitors will enter the Europa League knockout stages after finishing third.

Manchester City is one of only five teams in this season’s Champions League to have not lost in the group stage, having won their first three games before drawing goalless against Copenhagen and Borussia Dortmund. City returned to winning ways in the Premier League on Saturday, despite the absence of injured goal machine Erling Braut Haaland, with a 1-0 away victory over Leicester City, courtesy of a stunning Kevin De Bruyne free kick early in the second half.

Although City’s upcoming match against Sevilla is essentially a dead rubber, Guardiola and co will be eager to come away with a win and build momentum ahead of three more crucial domestic fixtures before the World Cup break.

Manchester City vs Sevilla prediction

Both teams will have more important matches to prioritise in the weeks leading up to the World Cup than Wednesday’s match, and neither team is expected to be at full strength.

Nonetheless, Man City will be considered favourites due to their superior squad depth, and they should have enough quality to win easily at the Etihad Stadium. Hence we go with the following pickings in this fixture:

  • MAN CITY @ 1.26
  • EUROPEAN HANDICAP- MAN CITY FC (-2) @ 2.46
  • HALFTIME/FULLTIME – MAN CITY FC/MAN CITY FC – @ 1.58
