Both English teams—Tottenham and Manchester City—playing in the Champions League tonight have already qualified for the knockout stages, and neither can improve their group positions.
This tends to suggest changes are likely in both sides, making betting suggestions based on individual performances tricky.
Manchester City travel to Croatia to take on Dinamo Zagreb having already won Group C. Injuries and suspensions have deprived City of most of their central defenders, and they are not exactly in the best of form. Their opponents can still qualify and are likely to be more motivated. We’ll side with them today.
Spurs manager Jose Mourinho has already stated that key players Kane, Alli, Vertonghen and Aurier will be rested as his team can’t catch tonight’s opponents Bayern Munich at the top of the group.
Bayern, on the other hand, have fallen to seventh in the Bundesliga and desperately need European success to deflect from domestic woe.
Former Arsenal player Serge Gnabry scored a hat trick in the reverse fixture in London, and we’ll look for him to continue this form tonight. He’s an enhanced 6/1 with Paddy Power to score first tonight, and we’ll try that.
Dinamo Zagreb/Man City: Zagreb to win, 1 pt, at 9/2, widely available
Bayern Munich/Tottenham: Gnabry to score first, 1 pt, at 6/1, Paddy Power
