Man City v Roma: Aguero set to star in Sky Blues victory
As Manchester City prepare to host Serie A joint-leaders Roma we’re backing the Sky Blues to do the business at the Etihad Stadium.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men are 4/6 to get back to winning ways in Europe following a run of three straight defeats in the Champions League.
However, away from the traditional match markets there’s plenty more fun to be had with our three best bets below the ones to be on.
With four goals in seven appearances, Argentine Sergio Aguero is reminding everyone who’s top dog among City’s strike force.
And if you fancy his side to take all three points then why not turn a straight-up punt into a more exciting wincast?
If the hosts are going to be victorious then expect Aguero to play a big part in their success having finished on the winning side in 11 of the previous 12 games where he’s found the back of the net.
The hosts’ adjustment to life at the top table of European football has been a tricky one with the cash-rich Sky Blues still getting to grips with tackling elite opponents.
In eight of their previous 10 Champions League games at the Etihad both teams have found themselves on the scoresheet.
And with Roma in rampaging form, coupled with the hosts’ own prowess in front of goal, expect a similar outcome.
He may have been derided by many pundits and fans alike during his Premier League stint at Arsenal.
But it’s difficult to mock Roma forward Gervinho at present with the Ivorian reinventing himself at the Serie A club.
A return of three goals from six matches in all competitions so far this term, including a brace in Roma’s 5-1 hammering of CKSA Moscow, makes our pick an attractive option to net anytime.
Gervinho has grown a cult following since his switch to Roma in 2013
