  • Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester)

After securing a 3:3 draw in the first leg of the Champions League Quarter-Finals against Real Madrid in Spain, Manchester City will continue their Premier League title chase against a relegation contender, Luton.

Citizens won five Premier League titles in the last six years, and even when they failed to do so, they came second. This season, many football pundits said that City is not good enough, and to be fair, that looked to be true. However, as the season progressed, they improved, and now, they look great once again. Currently, they are one point behind Arsenal and Liverpool, but the bookies favor them, offering odds of 2.4, compared to 2.79 and 3.22 on the other two teams. 

Luton played in League Two (fourth tier) only six years ago. Last season, they reached the Premier League for the first time ever in the club's history, but this year, they will most likely see a battle for survival until the very last round. Currently, they are 18th, with 25 points, on a level with points with 17th-placed Nottingham, which are in the safe zone.  

Manchester City vs Luton pick: Over 3.5 goals

City's offense looked great throughout the season, but lately, it has looked even better. In their last three matches, they scored 11 goals (3.7 per game) against much better teams than Luton: Real Madrid, Crystal Palace, and Aston Villa. So, scoring three or four vs Luton is a completely real scenario. 

Luton finally stopped their 11-game winless streak with a 2:1 win over Bournemouth. However, even though they were on a terrible streak, the Hatters were scoring pretty regularly and have scored at least a goal in 15 of the last 16 games in all competitions. 

In the last h2h game in the FA Cup, we saw a big 6:2 win for the Citizens. We expect another big win for Manchester City, but since the odds on the -1.5/-2 AH are too low, we will take an over 3.5 goals bet instead.

Manchester City team news

Philip Foden suffered a thigh injury late in the previous game vs Real Madrid, and according to English media, he will most likely miss the upcoming Premier League match.

Besides Foden, Nathan Ake and Kyle Walker, who missed the previous games, will most likely remain sidelined. Additionally, the first goalkeeper, Ederson, is still not 100% ready and will most likely be on the bench.
