Against All Odds: City to put an end to away blues

Sergio Aguero is back to his very best
Sergio Aguero is back to his very best

Both Bayern Munich and Man City have already qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League and Paul Robinson thinks the English side can get a positive result in Germany this evening.

"Sergio Aguero is on fire and the players will be desperate to regain some momentum following the draw at Southampton on Saturday, ahead of their clash with Arsenal this coming weekend."

Lay Bayern Munich v Man City @ 1.4840/85 

Bayern Munich are the current, and deserving favourites, to retain their Champions League trophy. They've won all five of their Group D games thus far, scoring 15 goals and conceding just two - including a 3-1 win at the Etihad back in October.

Pep Guardiola's side are also dominating in the Bundesliga as they've dropped just four points in 15 games to have a four point lead over Bayer Leverkusen in second. They aren't completely invincible though as in this competition last season they lost to BATE and drew with Valencia in the group phase, and then when they'd done all the hard work against Arsenal in England, they went down 2-0 at the Allianz to squirm through on away goals.

Manchester City have had their problems on the road this term and it's really hindered their progress in the Premier League. It's been a different story in this competition however as they've played two and won two away from the Etihad - albeit over Plzen and CSKA Moscow.

It's hard not to give them a squeak of a chance tonight though as they have so much quality that, if it all comes together, they're a match for any team in world football. Sergio Aguero is on fire and the players will be desperate to regain some momentum following the draw at Southampton on Saturday, ahead of their clash with Arsenal this coming weekend.

The Germans are the worthy favourites for this one but they are a very short price. Neither side really need to win and that can often throw up a funny result. That's why, with Bayern currently trading at around the 1.4840/85 mark, I have to make them my lay of the day.
