Man City v Napoli Top Tips
City were rocked by their first Premier League defeat since April when they lost 2-0 to Chelsea on Saturday, although that result is unlikely to derail their season and they enjoy the benefit of a kind run of fixtures during the build-up to Christmas.
The Citizens have generally been rampant, scoring five or more goals in five of their 24 games this season, so that City win and both teams to score bet is looking very decent.
In fact, both teams have scored in 19 of Hoffenheim’s matches in all competitions this season and they are yet to keep a single clean sheet away from home. The German outfit have struggled in Europe as they have only won one of 13 European fixtures and both teams scored in all 13 of those games!
Julian Nagelsmann’s men are bottom of Group F going into this game and can finish no higher than third if they win on Wednesday night, albeit they would need Shakhtar Donetsk to lose to Lyon if they are to nick that third spot and qualify for the Europa League.
It is difficult to make a case for Hoffenheim at The Etihad, even if Pep Guardiola opts to ring the changes to his starting line-up. It seems unlikely that Sergio Aguero will be risked following his groin injury, which opens the door for Gabriel Jesus to impress.
Jesus has scored five goals in his past four Champions League home games and he is 17/5 to be first goalscorer with Unibet.
