Our prediction for this Champions League match:
All eyes will be on Etihad Stadium when Manchester City and Liverpool face each other in the Champions League quarter-finals, return leg. The Citizens experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Jurgen Klopp's troops at Anfield, with the team failing to create a descent goal-scoring opportunity during the match. However, it is well known that Man City are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that top scorer Kun Aguero is likely to return to the starting line-up, we are tempted to put our money on Pep Guardiola's troops. Liverpool key player Mohamed Salah is rated doubtful for Tuesday's football match, which is yet another reason why we predict the hosts will emerge triumphant in the return leg. Anyhow, overcoming a three-goal deficit is easier said than done. In their last meeting at Etihad Stadium Man City recorded a 5-0 win over Liverpool.
Highlighted Player (Sergio Aguero):
Sergio Aguero was born on 2 June, 1988 in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. Sergio’s nickname is Kun and he used to play for Independiente and Atletico Madrid in the past. The Manchester City attacker has won two Premier League trophies with the Etihad Stadium outfit (2011/2012, 2013/2014) and he played in the Champions League semi-final with the Citizens in the 2015/2016 season. However, Real Madrid proved to be a big catch for Kun Aguero and his teammates in the semis of the elite competition.
The Argentine forward won the Olympic Gold Medal with the national team in 2008, while lifting the FIFA U-20 World Cup trophy on two occasions (2005, 2007). Aguero scored 24 goals in the 2015-16 Premier League campaign, but that did not help Manuel Pellegrini’s troops win the national championship.
Kun was married to Diego Maradona’s daughter Gianinna, but the couple separated in 2012. Giannina gave birth to their son Benjamin in 2009.
Highlighted Team (Liverpool):
Founded back in 1892, Liverpool are one of England’s and world’s most famous clubs. The Reds hold a high-profile rivalry with Everton and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the Merseyside derby.
The Reds welcome their opponents at Anfield and it has to be noted that they have already won 18 first division trophies. Liverpool were on the verge of lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, but Steven Gerrard slipped in the decider against Chelsea and left the Reds without a title.
Liverpool won their last Champions League trophy in 2005, with the team coming from three goals behind to beat Milan in a historic clash in Istanbul. The Reds have clinched five European Cups and it is no surprise they are regarded as one of the greatest European clubs.
The likes of Steven Gerrard, Robbie Fowler, Paul Ince, Ian Rush, Graeme Souness, Sami Hyypia and Luis Suarez are some of the most notable footballers to have represented the club over the years. The club’s anthem is You’ll Never Walk Alone and their shirt colour is red.
