Obligatory task for Manchester City

It's a game with more than clear signs. Manchester City is the clear favorite against Romanian Champion Steaua Bucharest on Tuesday. Anything else than a victory by the star Ensemble of Manchester City would be sensational. Kick-off is August 16 at 8.45 PM.

Current form Steaua Bucharest

A couple of years ago Bucharest managed to qualify for CL group phase. They are trying to make that happen again this Season. But with Manchester City they have to overcome last year's semifinalist. In the last qualification round Bucharest was able to defeat Sparta Prague. After a 1:1 draw in Prague they won at home with 2:0. In their home league they are on top again after three rounds, even though some teams have played one more game than Bucharest. Laurentiu Reghecampf's team scored a Maximum of nine Points in three games. The Coach had to incorporate a lot of new Players in the Team before the Season though. The game against Manchester City will Show, whether he was successful in doing so. The Romanian Champion should be self-confident however, because they are still undefeated in national and international Play so far. A couple of Players will miss the game though, like mid fielder Mihai Pintilii and Lucian Filip. Especially Pintilii will be missed in the defensive midfield.

Current form Manchester United

A breather for Sheikh Club Manchester City. They succeeded in their season opener, when they won against Sunderland last weekend on the first day of Premiere League play. The 2:1 victory was close, but well deserved. The star studded team around Kevin De Bruyne and Co. didn’t shine though. The match winning goal was only scored a couple of minutes before the end. In addition it was an own goal by Patrick McNair, who came from City rival ManU to Suderland in the summer. So they will have to play better in the Champion League qualification game against Bucharest. The Romanians will act similarly powerful like Suderland. It will be interesting to see, whether English national team goalie Joe Hart will return for that game. In the first round he was replaced by Willy Caballero. A long-term replacement could provoke unrest in the team. Unlike Manchester City their opponent is already in the middle of match operations, while the English team only played one game on top level so far. A similar result like in the season opener would be satisfying for Manchester however.

Betting Forecast

Manchester City is the favorite of course. Steaua will have to outdo themselves, if they want to beat Pep Guardiola’s team. They will have to play great defense especially. We are counting on a win by the favorite though. Our recommendation: Tipp 2.
