CSKA Moscow v Manchester City tips – Aguero to continue firing
Sergio Aguero should fire his team to victory in Russia on Tuesday night
October 20th, 2014
Manchester City are a best price 6/10 to claim three precious Champions League points against CKSA and it’s a match in which they can ill-afford to slip up considering they have managed just a point from their opening two matches.
A 1-0 defeat at the Allianz Arena was followed by a 1-1 draw with Roma meaning no margin for error against a team who look set to be the whipping boys in the group although the Moscow side only lost 1-0 at home to Bayern Munich in their last game.
Even so, City should make their class tell this week and Sergio Aguero is in red-hot form after scoring four goals against Tottenham on Saturday, with the Argentine joining Diego Costa at the top of the scoring charts.
Aguero is an 18/5 chance with BetVictor to open the scoring in this game, with betfair offering a tasty 13/10 that he finds the net at any stage against a side who were thrashed 5-1 by Roma in their Champions League opener.
Manuel Pellegrini knows that nothing less than victory will suffice in this game and we might see the champions of England flying out of the traps, with BetVictor offering 6/4 that City lead at half-time and full-time in this encounter.
The visitors have been scoring by the bucketload in the Premier League this season although Pellegrini will want to put the reducers on CSKA, with odds of 15/2 available about a 2-0 win for Manchester City.
The home side warmed up with a 6-0 win against Kuban on Saturday, with bet365 offering 11/2 about a victory for the Russian side which would effectively end City’s hopes of making the last sixteen stage.
