Manchester City vs Liverpool Preview

Manchester City vs Liverpool

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Etihad Stadium

Date: 10th April 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Earlier this year it appeared as though Manchester City would be gunning for an unprecedented quadruple but now they may have to settle for a double unless they can mastermind a huge shock to eliminate Liverpool in this game.

Liverpool overwhelmed them in the first half of the first leg and the Reds defended well in the second half to take a commanding 3-0 lead into the second leg.

At the weekend Manchester City suffered another defeat after taking a 2-0 lead in the first half before being succumbed to a 3-2 defeat in front of their own fans when a win would have helped secure the Premier League title.

A much changed Liverpool side drew at Everton at the weekend and Jurgen Klopp will undoubtedly be playing his best players in this game as they look to reach the Champions League semifinals for the first time since 2007.

Liverpool have scored at least 2 goals in 11 of their last 14 away games in all competitions and that should worry Pep Guardiola as he knows a Liverpool away goal would require them to score at least 5 goals.

Liverpool have won seven of their last ten games, losing just once and scoring 24 goals in that period of time.
