Schalke 04 v Man City Team News

Perhaps the tie Schalke would have hoped to avoid the most but, having beaten out a party of Porto, Galatasaray, and Lokomotiv Moscow by a 7-point margin, realistically speaking they have close to no chances of overcoming a side that has been tipped as this year's Champions League favourites - Man City.

To make things worse, the German outfit have only won four of their last 13 matches in all competitions and beating the Premier League champions over two legs looks all but improbable for Domenico Tedesco's team at the moment.

The visitors from Manchester have had joy scoring 50 goals since Christmas on all four fronts they are currently competing, and have been victorious in their last four and in 12 of their last 13 matches.

Pep Guardiola has a fine record against Schalke as a manager, as in six matches he has yet to suffer defeat. Man City averaged 3.67 goals per game in the group stage and an impressive 76% of their competitive matches this season have ended with at least 3 goals being scored, so we're going for a Manchester City Win and Over 2.5 Goals bet.
