Manchester City host Swiss side, Young Boys, on Tuesday where they will look to extend their 100% win streak in the UEFA Champions League. The two sides encountered in match day 3, with an Erling Haaland brace separating them, in a 3-1 victory.
Pep Guardiola’s men have been flawless thus far in their quest to retain the UCL title. City have won all three of their opening matches, scoring nine goals and conceding three. In fact, each of their matches has ended in a 3-1 win. Argentine, Julian Alvarez, is the joint top scorer in the competition with three goals.
To no surprise, the Citizens have also dominated in the Premier League and after 11 matches, they sit at the top of the table. The side have the best defence in the league, conceding just eight, whilst also scoring the second most with an average of 2.55. Incredibly, the last match they didn’t win at the Etihad was in December of last year.
After three matches, Young Boys sit bottom of Group G on one point, which they picked up in the 2-2 away draw versus Crvena zvezda. The team from Switzerland have scored in every game so far, but they have also conceded at least twice in all their matches. Meschack Elia has proved he can perform during the big occasions, netting against RB Leipzig and Man City last time out.
Raphael Wicky’s side top the Swiss Super League, accumulating 25 points from 12 matches and only tasting defeat on one occasion. As they’ve showed in Europe, Young Boys can score goals and they have registered 25 this season.
If Pep Guardiola rotates the side, Manchester City will still have more than enough quality to beat Wicky’s team. Young Boys will be in for a challenging evening in Manchester, even if they do score.
The final prediction is Manchester City 4-1 Young Boys.
