Manchester City vs Young Boys betting preview

When the reigning European champions lost a third successive domestic game at Arsenal last month, there were some rare signs of concern surrounding Manchester City.

Still, the worry was unnecessary.

An international break reboot has resulted in four straight wins since with Erling Haaland back among the goals (five across those matches) and City, at time of writing, back on top of the Premier League table.

In this competition, they’ve won three out of three, including a 3-1 victory in the reverse fixture in Berne a fortnight ago, and a win (or even a draw) here could be enough to send them into the knockout stage with two games to spare.

Their home record in this competition suggests a victory is highly likely – they’ve won 25 and drawn two of their last 27 at the Etihad.

Sadly, the odds also reflect this with City just 1/14 to claim the three points.

It means other markets must be scoured in search of value and siding with the hosts to claim a convincing win makes plenty of sense.

The reasons – along with our best bets for Man City v Young Boys – are outlined below.

Manchester City vs Young Boys key stats

  • Young Boys have never won away in the Champions League – drawing two and losing five of their seven such matches.
  • The Swiss champions have also never won in England, the Berne-based side losing three and drawing two.
  • Man City striker Erling Haaland has scored 24 goals in 20 group-stage games in the Champions League.
  • Only one team (Red Star Belgrade) have faced more shots than Young Boys in this season’s Champions League, while they also have the second-highest expected goals against (xGA) figure.
  • Man City are currently on a 27-match unbeaten run at home in the Champions League. They have won 25 of those games, their last loss coming against Lyon in 2018.

Man City to score 5+ goals (bet365)

City have consistently posted a big home win the Champions League group stage and this game provides them with another opportunity to do just that.

Last season they put five past Copenhagen, while they hit six v Leipzig in the previous campaign. Atalanta shipped five at the Etihad in 2019/20 and Shakhtar Donetsk were crushed 6-0 in 2018/19.

With the Swiss champions having picked up just a single point from three matches so far and City having responded to losing at Arsenal by winning four in a row, including a 6-1 battering of Bournemouth at the weekend, another goal-fest could be on the cards.

Backing City to score over 4.5 goals at 3/1 looks worth a shot.

Jeremy Doku to score at any time (BetMGM)

Doku sparkled in Saturday’s win over Bournemouth, scoring once and assisting four times.

As ever, we can never quite be sure how Pep Guardiola will juggle his line-up – City travel to Chelsea on Sunday – but Doku’s weekend display seems likely to see him keep his spot.

His pace and trickery have caught the eye early in his City career and he’s already netted three goals, including one in this competition against Leipzig.

As already suggested, a City goal spree looks more than possible and if that happens, Doku is highly likely to be involved.

Rodri 1+ shot on target (BetUK)

The Spaniard’s importance to Man City was highlighted when they lost all three games during his recent suspension period.

Since that ban ended, he’s managed a shot on target in three of his four matches, taking his overall record for this bet to 11 of 18 for club and country.

Rodri has been a bigger aerial threat from set pieces this season, loves a shot from distance and he should get chances in a contest his team are expected to dominate.
