Manchester City take on the visitors Tottenham Hotspurs in the second leg of Champions League quarterfinal. The match will be played on Wednesday, April 17th at
Guardiola just screwed up in the first match: 4-2-3-1 line-up, instead of the usual 4-3-3, the plan with inverted wingers, despite the fact that one of the flank defenders (Delf) is a false full back, he moves to the support zone of his team to overload the center of the field. But under these conditions, the flanks remained unfilled, which greatly helped Tottenham to life and, more specifically, the promotion of the ball. The refusal of high pressure is another complaint against Guardiola. In the second leg, it seems to me, Manchester City should get involved in the game from the very first minutes, and Guardiola should not invent anything.

Dele Alli had a great match against Manchester City, but Tottenham, it is worth saying, was lucky that some kind of superstorm was found on Guaodiola. Recently, the “Spurs” held a match against Huddersfield Town (won 4-0), but it is unlikely for this game it is possible to judge the general state of this team. Pochettino is still convenient opponent for Guardiola, so you shouldn’t think that these 1: 0 will be able to turn the Champions League, like a click of your fingers, and make Pochettino a favorite in this confrontation.
Yes, Tottenham had a great first match, but Manchester City is Manchester City. “Citizens”, as it seems to me, should play their favorite and convenient style from the very first minutes, which will simply knock out any kind of team (well, almost any). Hence my pick – Citizens to win the first half. Manchester City must go on a break, leading in the long run.
Prediction for the match: Manchester City to have a lead after the first half.
