Manchester will attempt a fresh attack at European glory, as it starts a new season with a trip to Spain, to face Sevilla in the opening match of its group stage fixtures.
Sevilla once again made it to the group stages of the Champions League in the previous season but was eliminated in the group stage itself, finishing behind Lille and Salzburg. Demoted to the Europa League, it found little success there too, as they were knocked out in the round of 16 by the Hammers. Julen Lopetegui once again finds himself in a tricky situation. Grouped in the company of Manchester City, Dortmund, and Copenhagen, the Palanganas have no points to lose if they want to advance to the next stage.
Manchester City was knocked out of the semifinals the last season thanks to a brilliant performance by Real Madrid. Coming back from a 1-goal deficit in the first leg, Real Madrid qualified for the finals with an aggregate of 6-5, thanks to a stunning goal by Karim Benzema and a brace by Rodrygo. Manchester City has however put that loss behind them and has begun the season on a positive note, the new signings, especially Haaland, have started reaping benefits, and the Citizens are definitely on track to make it through to the next round for the 10th consecutive season.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Sevilla F. C. vs Manchester City F. C. Champions League 2022-23. The match is going to be played at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, Sevilla, on 6th September 2022.
With both of his star defenders, Diego Carlos and Jules Kounde gone, Lopetegui will have a lot of problems in stopping the English juggernaut. Karim Rekik, Adnan Januzaj, Jesus Corona, and Marcao are expected to remain on the sidelines due to injuries. Kasper Dolberg, on loan from Nice, could earn a start, while Thomas Delaney, Papu Gomez, and Jesus Navas could be back in the squad for this important game.
For the visitors, Pep Guardiola is without the services of Laporte, and Kyle Walker to remains doubtful. Kalvin Phillips could make a comeback after recovering from a shoulder injury.
As mentioned earlier, Sevilla’s defense has taken a beating with the exit of its star players, and we are backing the visitors to score freely.
Bet on Manchester City to win.
Both Teams to Score
Yes @ 1.90
Manchester City has conceded goals in 3 of its last 4 matches, while Sevilla has managed to score at least once in 4 of its last 5 games, which include a friendly. We are therefore back in them at least once on their home turf.
Erling Haaland has been in exceptional form this season. The Norwegian striker has played an instrumental role in each of Manchester City’s fixtures this season. With 10 goals in 6 top-flight games, Haaland is the top scorer in the Premier League, with 2 hat-tricks to his name. The porous defensive set-up of Sevilla will provide him ample opportunities to score.
