MANCHESTER CITY v JUVENTUS PREVIEW
Ah how opinions swing on Manchester City. Beat one of the more established Premier League clubs at home and they are on their way – see the Chelsea and Liverpool games. Get a not too inspiring away draw somewhere and everything is back to the usual panic. Injured tonight are Shaun Wright-Phillips, Wayne Bridge, and Aleksandar Kolarov, but Roberto Mancini is making confident noises and insisting the Premiership now has greater quality than Serie A. Juve in fact, were Mancini’s boyhood team.
Juventus, managed by Luigi Del Neri, have made an indifferent start to the Serie A season and are 9th. Add that to an uninspiring draw with Poznan in the opening group game, and City must fancy their chances. The win would also put them in a dominant position in the group and allow them the luxury of some rotation of that impressive squad.
Manchester City to win is value at 1.6 at NaijaBet
