Monaco Vs Manchester City
This two sides played out one of the ties of the first round a couple of weeks back and will be after more of the same in this one.
Monaco finished in third spot last season and whilst they could not reach the heights PSG and Lyon did they will feel confident that they remain one of the best sides in the league. The team have started superbly though this season in the League and will be particularly pleased with the three points they took off Bordeaux recently in their excellent 2-1 win. Last time they faced off against Man City the side played there part in a superb 5-3 win for City. However, with home advantage and everything to play for, this one could still go either way.
Manchester City were both sublime and ridiculous in their last match against Monaco and will be hoping to cut out the mistakes and ensure their two goal advantage is enough to help them through to the next round of the Champions League. The side did not defend with anywhere near enough resilience and once again looked far too easy to score against, a problem the side have had all season.
The last match between these two sides was a real classic, outmatched only by the unreal 6-1 result between Barcelona and PSG last week. Falcao was back to his best in the first leg of this tie and should have had a hattrick, only to go and miss a penalty. The striker made up for it though, bustling past John Stones and dinking the ball superbly over Willy Caballero. Stones also redeemed himself by poking in a goal up at the other end when the game looked largely lost.
I will be backing the home win but Man City to qualify in this one. I cannot see City being kept out for the entire 90 minutes and whilst I do think they will lose the battle they will win the war. Double the home win with both sides to score and then go for Falcao to get himself on the score sheet as the games first goal scorer. The very best of luck and please be sure to enjoy the game It should be a cracker.
