Man City – Schalke,Champions League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MAN CITY - SCHALKE
City has some problems in attack lately, and this certainly is influenced at least little by Fernandinho’s absence, but the key is the closure of these corridors through the center and how the teams have learned mainly to act very concentrated in this zone. The match with Watford is no exception. The main point in the game was that a goal was scored after a clear offside, but because of the incomprehensible rules, it was counted. Then Watford team broke down and was shattered by City.
Schalke are literally tragic on the basis of their performance and results last season. Many things have changed for miners. They failed again at the weekend, so their participation in the Champions League really seems to be unnecessary at the moment. They also have a match for the Cup soon, so their schedule is full. Schalke have conceded at least 3 goals in each of their last four matches in all competitions. Of course, there were also four losses.
In the end, we should mention the fact that during this calendar year Guardiola’s team played the best football in England. Surely one of the best in Europe. Schalke has a clear goal for this campaign – survival in the Bundesliga. They must look for at least 2 goals without conceding 1 against City, which seems absurd. Still, we think we will see new open match, as happened in the last one. Prediction – Over 3.0 Goals at 1.50. Alternative option – Over 3.5 goals at 1.91.
- City has scored 37 goals in their last 8 home games in all competitions
- In 4 of the last 5 away games of Schalke in all competitions there were at least 4 goals
