Our prediction for this Champions League match:
WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena will host Tuesday’s football game between Hoffenheim and Manchester City. Hoffenheim produced a fine display in their opener and they were on the verge of beating Shakhtar in Donetsk. However, the Ukrainians eventually scored a late equalizer and the two teams shared the spoils. The Bundesliga side face a difficult task against Manchester City and seeing that the Citizens are desperate to record their first win of the process, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Pep Guardiola’s men aim to bounce back from a shocking 2-1 loss to Olympique Lyon and we predict that they are going to leave their hearts on the field. A man to watch in the away team will be Kun Aguero, who has been scoring goals for fun in the 2018/2019 Premier League campaign and we believe that he will prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Highlighted Player (Pavel Kaderabek):
Pavel Kaderabek is a Czech Republic defender born on 25 April 1992, who has enjoyed a bright start to his professional career. Coming through the youth ranks at Sparta Prague and gaining some first team experience during a loan spell with Viktoria Zizkov, the right-sided defender was finally able to show what he is capable of during the 2012/2013 season and he didn’t need a lot of time to make the next step in his career. After scoring impressive 10 goals in 76 league appearances for Sparta Prague, Kaderabek joined Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015, shortly after he had established himself as a starting right-back in the Czech Republic national team. The talented footballer helped Repre make it to the Euro 2016 finals by starting 9 qualifying matches, once again proving his killer instinct by scoring two goals. Pavel Kaderabek looks set to become one of leading players of the new generation and a big club move may not be far away either.
Highlighted Team (Manchester City):
Manchester City are the lest famous of the two major clubs based in Manchester. The club was founded in 1880, but they have been struggling in the English Premier League in the past. Nonetheless, ever since the club was purchased by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, the Citizens have been playing an important role in the English top flight.
Manchester City won two Premier League trophies under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini (2011/2012 and 2013/2014), but both managers eventually paid the price for some disappointing results. Man City play their home games at the Etihad Stadium and the stadium capacity is 55,097.
Manchester United are regarded as Manchester City’s biggest rivals and the likes of Kun Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Uwe Rosler, Yaya Toure, Sylvain Distin are some of the most remarkable players that played for the Etihad Stadium outfit. Manchester City have won four Premier League titles and five FA Cup trophies and it has to be noted that they made it to the Champions League semis in the 2015/2016 season.
