Sporting vs Manchester City Prediction

Both teams are in excellent run of form, but the Citizens are class apart and they must win this tie with minimal fuss. We will take Manchester City win in combination with both teams to score with Sporting last failed to score at their home patch in August 2020. That is a massive streak of 39 games.

In May last year Manchester City’s Champions League bid failed in Portugal. The Citizens went down 1-0 to Chelsea in Porto, so its fitting that they return to Portugal in an attempt to exercise those demons this week.
