However, in the last three games Guardiola has faced difficulties because a lot of injured players. Permanent absence Vincent Kompany enforced the coach to play with three center backs against Everton: Stones, Otamendi and Clichy. What was the much more important the leading attacking midfielder Kevin De Bruyne recovered from injured and is getting into the good mood. At the same time Barcelona is waiting for Leo Messi to be ready as he was early this season. Sports betting said that Culés personnel losses are counted for goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen and two full backs Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba. It’s not crucial but unpleasantly.

The bookmakers are ruthless – Blaugrana is an obvious favorite on Camp Nou: Barcelona - 1.53; draw - 4.50; Man City - 6.00. Traditionally Barça attacking link is the strongest one but the midfield is poor. Andrés Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Ivan Rakitić and André Gomes can’t find mutual understanding and support attacks. While bets noted that the City suffers from an inferiority complex under top European clubs losing to Barcelona four times in a row in last two years. But this game is principal for Guardiola as he was captain and head coach of Culés. That’s why the bet “Double Chance: Man City Or Draw” (2.30) should be considered. Alternatively “Barcelona Win and Over 2.5 Goals” (1.83) can be taken.
