Manchester City vs Schalke - Betting Tip and Match Preview - 12/03/2019

Using an FA Cup game against second-tier Swansea being the more natural selection for a rotated line-up, anticipate Pep Guardiola to spot a strong XI here to complete the task against Schalke and make certain of their place in the previous eight. This usually means that Raheem Sterling, that had been pulled shortly after scoring his 15-minute hat-trick against Watford on Saturday, will probably play on the left of front three, together with Sergio Aguero top the lineup. Fernandinho remains out thus Ilkay Gundogan will remain in the holding function, together with Bernardo Silva and David Silva ahead of him once again, with Kevin De Bruyne sidelined. Oleksandr Zinchenko was appointed City's player of the month for February and has established himself as his best option at left-back because Benjamin Mendy's continuing injury problems.

Despite some injuries issues, everything points to a City triumph; they've won 21 of 23 games at the Etihad in all competitions this season, while they've won 17 of the last 18 games should you count the penalties triumph over Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final. They have maintained a clean sheet in five of the past eight matches, while they've scored three or more objectives ten occasions in 2019 already. Allowing Schalke to evaluate away goals, or to win with a two-goal margin, would be unprecedented in the circumstance of their season.

Breel Embolo, Schalke's important and versatile forward, marked his return to the starting XI in his first start since November by opening the scoring against Werder Bremen on Friday. He doubled his tally five minutes before the final whistle. The only problem is that the rest of his staff stays a shambles, and conceded four goals for the second successive video game to reduce 4-2. It was a marginal improvement in the 4-0 defeat at home to Fortuna Dusseldorf, however they still look a fraction of the team which finished second last year; four points from the relegation play-offthey look as though they could be in danger of an unthinkable drop to the next tier.

The issue for Domenico Tedesco is that no matter what he does with all the group, they fail to devote a performance. Still, he will likely choose what he thinks is his strongest group; this will see Jeffrey Bruma and Matija Nastasic remaining in the backline notwithstanding conceding four last time outside, even though Breel Embolo - Schalke's only shining spark against Werder Bremen - will likely to continue to play behind a centre-forward. He has opted for Guido Burgstaller in that part in recent months, but the giant Austrian only has a single goal in his previous eight appearances.
