Midweek Champions League : Paddy Power Free Bet
We’ve a cracking week of Champions League football, as Paddy Power celebrate with the announcement of a new free bets offer worth £250/250 to all customers to spend on any match! That includes Ajax v Man City! Claim here!
Roberto Mancini knows that this is his men’s biggest game of the season so far and that they need to improve on their last performance to get the result they want.
City will still feel as though they can go far in the Champions League, but at the moment there does look to be a number of teams that are stronger than them.
However, with players such as Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero – they do have bags of potential as these two are of the highest quality. Also, Edin Dzeko is full of confidence after scoring a brace in the Premier League over the weekend and could be in line for a starting birth, at the expense of Mario Balotelli.
The Premiership Champions will also have to make do without David Silva, who has still not recovered from a knock while on international duty.
As for Ajax, only a win will do for them here really.
Another defeat would all but end their chances of making the knockout stages and they are not happy with the way they have performed in the competition so far, having struggled to two straight defeats, which has seen them propping up the table.
The Dutch side will be hoping the home crowd get behind them and they can have a memorable evening tonight, however their recent form is patchy, with two draws against FC Utrecht and Heracles coming into the game which reflects in their big price of 4/1 to take all three points.
With both sides needing the win, this is what the Champions League is all about and with so much at stake, this game is sure to deliver. Kick-off is 7.45PM.
