An all English affair as Spurs welcome Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City to the north London to play the first ever Champions League fixture at their new stadium.

Predictions

Tottenham’s 3-0 first leg victory over Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16 dismissed any nerves going into the second match as Spurs comfortably progressed to the last eight. This will be the first of three games against Manchester City in 12 days for Spurs, as the season suddenly gets very serious indeed.

Manchester City cruised into the quarter finals with a 10-2 aggregate victory over Schalke in the last round. This will be a much sterner test for Pep Guardiola’s side however – and a positive first leg result could set the tone for the tie. Sports betting sites will find it difficult to set their prices given that both sides play in the same league – and a fascinating two legs are in store for the fans.

Spurs have stumbled slightly in the league recently – only winning once in their last six games. But Mauricio Pochettino will hope that his side continue their Champions League form where they haven’t lost since the first two group stage matches.

Manchester City still have an eye on other competitions – and have already claimed the EFL Cup – but the Champions League is the one that everyone associated with the club wants to win the most. The bookies have the Premier League club as favourites to win the tournament but this will be a closely fought game and could end in a 2-2 draw.

Betting Tips

The draw                  

With these two teams being so familiar with each other it is likely to be close match – but with the promise of goals. 

Total goals over 3.5

With so much attacking talent on display it seems inconceivable that there will not be goals in this one.

Statistics

Head to Head

These two sides will be even more familiar with each other over the next few weeks but a Riyad Mahrez goal gave City the victory at Wembley earlier in the season.

Stats

  • Tottenham have only lost one game at home in the Champions League this season – a 4-2 reverse to Barcelona at the start of the group stage. But this will be the first game at their new home.
  • As in just about every competition they enter, Manchester City have scored the most goals in this season’s Champions League – 26 in just eight games.
  • This is the third successive season of Champions League football for Tottenham – but they have not made it further than the round of 16 in any of those campaigns before this year.
  • It shows the strength in depth – and the talent at their disposal – that Manchester City have the top two players on this season’s Champions League assist table in Leroy Sane and Riyad Mahrez.
