Tip Manchester City - Tottenham
This will be another interesting encounter to follow; Sergio Aguero missed a penalty in the first leg and Manchester City went on to lose, but then how will the hosts respond to the loss? That is the big question as City goes for a quadruple. Spurs will be playing away from their new stadium for the first time and with a wretched away record, they will need to give 101% in this clash. They have improved defensively, and also in attack; in the last three matches, they have not conceded but have scored seven goals. This is the form they want to carry in this game even though they have one win and six losses in their last seven away matches. They have one win, one loss and three draws in their last five away matches in the competition, and in the last seven away they have just one clean sheet. At times it can be impossible to stop City from scoring, especially when playing at home, and this will also be an area of focus for Spurs. Apart from the loss to Spurs, and the draw with Chelsea in the League Cup final, City have won each of the remaining matches in the last 15. City have also lost just two in their last 25 matches; 22 of the 25 have ended in wins. They have one loss and six wins in eight Champions League matches and have picked three straight wins at home in the competition. Prior to their loss to Spurs, City had picked four straight wins over the Londoners; they have lost to them in just one of the last six meetings.
Key points Manchester City - Tottenham
Spurs have one win in seven away matches.
Spurs have one win in six meetings with Manchester City.
Manchester City have 13 wins in 15 matches.
Conclusion Manchester City - Tottenham
Spurs have not been the best to bet on when playing away from home in recent times. They have six losses in the last seven away matches and have one win in five away Champions League matches. On the flip side, City have been doing well at home, and we don’t see Spurs holding on to their slim advantage. City could win this by a goal and force it to post match penalties.

Thanks to a goal from Son Heung-min in the last 20 minutes of the first-leg, Tottenham were able to secure a home win and a one-goal advantage going into the scond-leg at the Etihad on Wednesday. Manchester City will be favourites to see victory in this fixture however, as they have the home advantage, and Spurs will be without their star striker Harry Kane - whose left-ankle injury could leave him sidelined for the rest of the season.
