It seemed like mission impossible when the final whistle blew at Anfield last week, although there’s a collective confidence within the Manchester City ranks that they can still make the final four of the Champions League.
City’s 3-0 defeat against Liverpool means that they need to score at least three times in normal time to keep the tie alive, while a goal for the visitors would mean Guardiola’s side require five goals in order to go through.
However, bet365 offer 9/2 that the Premier League champions-elect claim a semi-final spot at the expense of their English rivals, with Guardiola claiming ahead of this match that his team would need to play a “perfect game” in order to go through.
It’s not certain whether Mohamed Salah will be available for the Reds, with the Egyptian winger sustaining injury during the first leg encounter, although Liverpool are 1/7 with William Hill to go through.
Jurgen Klopp will be keen for his team to find the net and really force the hand of their opponents, with Paddy Power going 8/13 that both teams find the net.
A 3-0 victory for Man City is priced at 11/1 and that would mean extra-time and a potential penalty shoot-out between the two teams, with the home side likely to field Sergio Aguero in attack for this clash.
