Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Atlético vs Manchester City


In the championship of Spain, the "mattress" gave out a bright series of 6 victories in a row, which was interrupted in the last round by Mallorca, fighting for survival. In attack, Simeone's team played very poorly, inflicting only one shot on target, and the outcome of the meeting was decided by a penalty in the middle of the second half. Atlético's misfire was taken advantage of by all competitors in the fight for second place, dropping it to 4th place.

In the playoffs of the Champions League, the "mattresses" got from second place in group "F", having won only two wins in six matches. In the 1/8 finals, Manchester United got unstable: in Madrid, the teams parted world (1-1), but Atletico turned out to be stronger at Old Trafford thanks to a goal by Lenan Lodi. We note that for the 24-year-old Brazilian, this scored goal was the debut in European competition.

Manchester City

In the Premier League since November, the Citizens have been on a 12-round winning streak before losing only one match in nine, 2-3 against Tottenham. They have long held the lead in the standings, although they could have lost it on Sunday, because there was a main battle for the championship - against Liverpool. As a result, the teams "painted the world", keeping the difference of one point.

Manchester City qualified for the Champions League play-offs from the top spot in Group A, winning 4 out of 6 matches. In the 1/8 finals, he easily dealt with Sporting, winning the first match with a score of 5-0 (the return game did not bring any goals).

Game Totals Prediction

At the Etihad a week ago, the Citizens won a modest 1-0 victory. The only goal was scored by Kevin de Bruyne in the middle of the second half. "Mattress", to put it mildly, disappointed: not a single shot on goal, not a single corner and only two mounted passes for the entire match. With such anti-football, they wanted to achieve a draw, but Guardiola's team deservedly won.

In the current season, Manchester City looks, of course, more interesting, more stable and more powerful, but you definitely cannot underestimate the Simeone team, because they have rich experience in playing in the playoffs, strong defense, and you should not forget about the home field factor. Like the first meeting, the return game will not be rich in goals, so the safe bet will be Total Under (3.0) for 1.42. On the other hand, the "mattress" is tedious to go forward, they need to score, so they will open up, take risks and play openly. In this regard, we have no doubt that the "Citizens" will score, and here it is best to take "Manchester City to win by one goal or draw" for 1.81.
