Tottenham vs Man City (By: Dajkula)
Tottenham faces Manchester City in the first quarter-finals match of the Champions League. City is placed as the solid favorite but I favor the hosts in this one.
The battle is heating up for the league title but also for the places for the Champions League. Tottenham already lost 4 times at home this season but they always have good results in the Champions League. Wembley was never regarded as the real Tottenham home, however. The home support on the brand new stadium will be immense and I believe they will carry the team today. Tottenham had a couple of days more to prepare for this match and the key figures are available for this match.
Both teams had some bad periods in their previous matched. Tottenham rode their luck at home and away especially. We could say they were clinical but they also had a great deal of luck on their side.
City destroyed Schalke in the return match but was nowhere as convincing on the road. The had the possession but created almost nothing. If Schalke wasn`t so bad in controlling the game they would have lost and they would have deserved it. City is on a great run in the league and you have to consider them as favorites for the title. They played the semi-finals once and they are far from convincing in this competition. Somehow, they always manage to disappoint. In the previous season, Liverpool just destroyed them in the away game.
The key figures are available in this match. Tottenham is missing Aurier, Dier, Janssen, Lamela, and Llorente. City is missing Bravo, Delph, and Zinchenko.
Now, City had a sort of dominance over Tottenham lately and they won the last two visits to Webley. With this, the slate is clean, and my feeling is that Tottenham will raise their game today and take the win they surely need for the return.
