Red Star Belgrade v Manchester City Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 5.45pm UK Time, Wednesday 13th December 2023

 

Manchester City are one of only two sides with a perfect record of five wins from five in the Champions League group stages (the others being Real Madrid) and Pep Guardiola’s men will be going all-out to keep this record intact when they face Red Star on Wednesday evening.

Having drawn three and lost one of their previous four Premier League outings, Manchester City returned to winning ways in the English top-flight when they battled their way back from a goal behind to beat struggling Luton Town 2-1 at the weekend. Guardiola’s men sit in fourth position in the Premier League table with four points separating them from leaders Liverpool after sixteen round of fixtures and they close off 2023 with six games across competitions in just 17 days, including two in Saudi Arabia for the Club World Cup. Guardiola and his men will be playing purely for pride in this midweek Champions League affair as they have made it into the last sixteen of the competition with plenty of room to spare, while opponents Red Star are already out of the competition having managed just a single point from their five games thus far.

Red Star squandered a chance to secure third place in Group G when they lost 2-0 to Young Boys a fortnight ago but while they have been enjoying recent success on the domestic front, their European campaign is at an end. Guaranteed to finish bottom of the group irrespective of how they fare on Wednesday evening, Red Star are out of contention for even a drop into the Europa League and we don’t envisage them upsetting the form book and getting one over on City in their midweek outing.

Indeed, while Pep Guardiola will likely ring a few changes for this match given that qualification for the last sixteen is already assured, the visiting lineup will almost certainly be too strong for the hosts to cope with and maximum points should go to Manchester City.

 

Back Man City to win and both teams to score at best odds of 9/5
