After a 3-0 stroll on Matchweek One of the Champions League, Manchester City step out for their first home assignment against Dinamo Zagreb tomorrow.
We asked the MEN’s Manchester City correspondent, Stuart Brennan , for his verdict.
Kevin De Bruyne 1st goal – 15/2
Both Teams To Score 21/20
Win, lose or draw?
Dinamo showed they are dark horses by beating Atalanta 4-0 in their group opener – but City at home are formidable and should have too much for the Croatian champions. Sadly the bookies think so, too. City are 1/12 with thepools.com to win. Maybe one for the acca?
Who’s a good bet for first scorer?
Kevin De Bruyne is due a big goal after making a few for others, and his long-range shooting could be key against an expected five-man defence. He’s a very well-priced 15/2 to score the opening goal and 9/5 to score anytime .
Who’s on pens?
Will City keep a clean sheet?
Dinamo are good on the counter, and City are slow at the back, so you always expect at least one away goal. Both Teams To Score is 21/20 while Both Teams To Score and Either Team To Win is a big 5/4 with thepools.com .
