Manchester City will welcome to the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan by La Liga heavyweights Sevilla in Group G.
They had a disastrous start to the current campaign. The protégés of Lopetegui have only accrued one point in four games, and their goal differential is a negative five (3:8). The squad doesn't have much luck, but in the first three rounds of La Liga, for instance, it controlled the ball more than 60% of the time and outperformed rivals in terms of shots on target.
The "citizens" struggled in the last Premier League round, earning just one point against Aston Villa (1:1). Additionally, Guardiola's team missed the second goal that should have been scored at the end of the game, but VAR disallowed it. The attacking game appears to be strong, but Holand plays wild football and has already scored up to 10 goals (plus an assist). The team misses a lot, however, and the defense of the club is not very good.
Sevilla's European baptism of fire is unlikely to finish with home celebrations since their new-look defense is already struggling as a result of injuries. Even if City's league title defense has already encountered some difficulties, they are still a formidable opponent when it comes to recovering from setbacks. A convincing away victory is the only result that is possible in this situation.
Pick: Manchester City -1 in AH
Total: Over 2.5 Goals
