Manchester City take on the visitors Steaua Bucuresti in the second leg of the final qualifying round of Champions League. The match takes place at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday, August 24th. The first leg ended with impressive 5-0 win of the City.
The winner of the matchup was decided after the first leg in Romania where Pep Guardiola’s men thrashed the hosts 5-0. Considering this we should expect numerous reserve players in this match. The city had tough match against Sunderland on the opening match of the season but it was followed by two confident wins over Steaua and Stoke City, 5-0 and 4-1 respectively. We should note that the City are undefeated in their last six home matches since the end of March, taking four wins and two draws.

Steaua failed to resist the visitors from Manchester in the home leg and now the team can make plans for the group stage of Europa League and domestic league. Romanian side should learn the lesson from this matchup and hope this experience of battling one of the best European teams help Bucuresti side further in the season.
After the first leg we should expect nothing else but another confident win of Guardiola’s men over Biciresti side. We can expect to see some of the reserve players in the lineup of the hosts, who would try their best to prove they are good enough for big matches.
Prediction for the match: Manchester City to win with -2.0 Asian handicap.
