The Citizens will host Tottenham 2 times this week and both games could decide their season in both Champions League and Premier League. They are trailing Liverpool by 2 points in their domestic league, but they have a game in hand on them.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Up next... 👀⏰&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;🔵 &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/mancity?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#mancity&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/N0BujQ6Pjd\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/N0BujQ6Pjd&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Manchester City (@ManCity) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/ManCity/status/1117763143307014145?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;April 15, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</p><p>Last week everyone was shocked with Pep Guardiola’s “defensive” approach from the 1st leg. Unfortunately for City, Sergio Aguero missed a penalty in the 13th minute of the game and now the Citizens need to overcome the 1 goal deficit to reach the semis. They immediately bounced back last weekend beating Crystal Palace 3-1 on the road adding 3 more points to their Premier League season tally. Manchester City have been scoring goals for fun at home this term, but the lack of an away goal puts them in danger in the 2nd leg because if Tottenham can find the back of the net, City need 3 in order to qualify further in the competition.</p><p>Unfortunately, Tottenham will be without Harry Kane for the rest of the season after injuring his ankle against Manchester City last Tuesday, but they have Son Heung-min who can be a great replacement for Kane. On the other side, Man City have no big injury issues with Benjamin Mendy back and expected to feature in this game. One goal lead is not enough when you’re playing the 2nd leg away against City but the clean sheet from the 1st leg might be very important.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;A huge week ahead. 👊&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;WED: Man City (A) - UCL &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;SAT: Man City (A) - PL &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/MondayMotivation?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#MondayMotivation&lt;/a&gt; ⚪️ &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/COYS?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#COYS&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/wAxUHrJOVS\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/wAxUHrJOVS&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/SpursOfficial/status/1117681996262715392?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;April 15, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</p><p>The host will press high from the 1st minute of the game and will try to score a fast goal and approach the rest of the match more relaxed. They will control the match, have the possession and impose their rhythm will Tottenham having a defensive approach and trying to score on the break. City should have enough to score in the 1st half and open up the match so we expect a high-scoring affair with City winning it and booking their semifinal tickets.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829" target="_blank" title="Manchester City vs Tottenham Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Manchester City to win and over 2.5 goals in the match at 1.8 with Coral.</strong></em></a></p>
