  • Sevilla have won just three matches all season

City just can’t stop scoring

Britain Soccer League Cup
Man City’s match-up with Spanish side Sevilla in Champions League Group D looks set to be the duel of the day, and Coral have an awesome special to match, with the Sky Blues available to back at 3/1 to beat the Bathtubs and over 3.5 goals occurring in the clash (max stake £20).

This pick is worth a wager purely for the ferocity of City’s in-form attack, as Manuel Pellegrini’s men have clocked-up a cracking 11 strikes in their last two tussles alone, handing out vicious drubbings to Premier League opponents.

Furthermore, in the Mancunian club’s past five frays across all competitions, there has only been one scuffle in which there was under five goals scored overall.

Outscoring their guests appears to be the name of game for the Sky Blues, who have been especially potent on home soil, grabbing 18 goals across six Etihad outings.

Dangerous strength in depth

Wilfried Bony is undoubtedly striking understudy at City, but the Ivorian attacker would be a starter for most top teams, and will have impressed Pellegrini last time out by bagging a brace plus an assist. Any club that can lease out forwards of Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic’s caliber certainly has no shortage of firepower.

Summer signing sensations Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne should also provide the support from midfield, having struck a potent nine goals and eight assists between them so far this season.

Stuttering Sevilla

As opposition, the Bathtubs have enough in their armory to breach the Sky Blues’ backline, with French forward Kevin Gameiro in particularly fine form.

Yet, Unai Emery’s guys have managed just three victories across the board this campaign, with none occurring on their travels. The Spanish side have also failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last six battles, which does not bode well for a trip to the Etihad.
