Manchester City and its quest for a Champions League title begins Tuesday with a trip to Spain face Sevilla in an intriguing opening match.

The English champions have gotten off to an unbeaten start through six games in the Premier League , but a European title has always been the trophy that has escaped manager Pep Guardiola and the Cityzens.

Meanwhile, the La Liga side has struggled out of the gates and the club can’t be relishing this fixture against City’s high-flying attack.

Goals have been a theme in the fixtures these teams have played this season, so I think that should continue in this showdown.

Sevilla

Over the summer, Sevilla cashed in on its center-back pairing, with Diego Carlos joining Aston Villa and Jules Koundé going to Barcelona.

Manager Julen Lopetegui’s team has had major defensive issues after those departures, allowing a goal in all four matches and multiple tallies in three of those contests in the Spanish top flight.

The rough start also includes a 3-0 loss to Barcelona last weekend, which features a similar offense that Lopegeui’s side will be facing here.

By The Numbers

  • 1.85 — Through the first four games in league play, Sevilla has allowed just less than two xG per 90 minutes, according to fbref.com. This came against Osasuna, Real Valladolid, Almería and Barcelona.
  • 3.25 — The combined xG per match average in those fixtures came in north of three and both teams scored in three of the four matches.

Manchester City

Star striker Erling Haaland is set to make his UCL debut with City, plus he is in flying form to start his career in global powerhouse.

The Norwegian striker already has 10 goals and two hat tricks in his first six starts for the club. He will like his chances of finding the back of the net against a struggling Sevilla defense.

One other note with the Cityzens is key defender Kyle Walker limped off with an injury this past weekend, which would be a huge loss on the defensive side.

By The Numbers

  • 71% — If you add the Community Shield game to City’s six EPL matches, the total in those fixtures has cleared three goals in five of seven affairs.
  • 1 — In the Champions League group stage last season, only this number of the Cityzens’ six matches failed to have finish with at least three goals.

Betting Analysis & Pick

When I look at this game, I can’t see how Sevilla will be able to slow down this City attack. That said, I’m backing the total to fly over three goals at -105 odds via the Asian Handicap at DraftKings as my top pick.

If your sportsbook only offers 3.5 at a plus price, I also like that option as well, because the Cityzens could possibly go over this number themselves.

A fun prop bet offered at DraftKings is for any player to score two or more goals, with Haaland maybe worth a look at +260 odds.

The Pick: Total Over 3 Goals (-105)
