Tottenham vs Man City (By: Joey)
It is time for the UEFA Champions League quarter-final and the first leg will see Tottenham Hotspur play host to Manchester City at their swanky new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday. This all English Premier League encounter is sure to have a league context, as both sides still have a lot to play domestically. While Spurs are fighting it out to remain in the top-four and end in the Champions League qualification places for the next season, the Citizens are locked in a tough tussle for the title with Liverpool. This is first of the three meetings in quick succession between these clubs, as they set to ring in a tight period of fixtures. Tottenham have been exceptional in the Champions League, delivering knockout punch to Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16, winning 4-0 on aggregate. Including the matches in the league phase, they have won their last three home fixtures conceding just one goal. City are from a different planet, with the Pep Guardiola side one of the best in the continent. They have won their last 14 matches in all competitions and are unbeaten in seven Champions League fixtures (W6, D1) after losing 2-1 at home against Lyon.
Tottenham Hotspur have scored at least one goal in each of their eight Champions League fixtures this season.
Manchester City have scored 20 goals in their last five Champions League fixtures and have 23 goals in their last ten competitive matches.
Manchester City have won their last three matches against Tottenham Hotspur in all competitions.
Premier League rivals taking their rivalry to the Champions League makes this an exciting clash. Notwithstanding the fact that they are in line for an unprecedented quadruple, Manchester City will hope to make their away leg count. They have been among the goals recently, but this might not see a heavy scorer. Tottenham Hotspur started their life in the new stadium with a win, but this will be the test of their skills.
My prediction will be a win for Spurs.
