City travel to Borussia Dortmund tonight and a win would book their place in the last 32 of the Europa League if Ajax fail to beat Real Madrid.
The Blues drew 1-1 with the German side at the Etihad in October and are 23/10 to take all three points with the draw chalked up at 11/4 in Paddy Power’s online betting.
Mario Balotelli’s 90th minute penalty levelled the score for City in the reverse fixture in Manchester after Marco Reus had given Dortmund a second-half lead.
The Italian striker is 11/2 to score first for City and 3/1 to hit the back of the net ant anytime in Paddy Power’s goalscorer’s market while a 1-1 draw is trading at 13/2.
Roberto Mancini’s side have battled back to draw in the three games they’ve fallen behind in this campaign and the odds on them doing so on Tuesday night makes some appeal at 6/1 with Paddy Power.
Sergio Aguero's penalty delivered a point against Real Madrid at home last month while Yaya Toure and Aguero were on the score sheet for the visitors in the 2-2 draw at home to Ajax a fortnight before.
Aguero is 12/5 to score at anytime in Germany or 8/1 to get the first goal of the game.
City’s attacking play has meant they’re a constant threat in the opposition’s box and they’ve already been awarded two penalties – both converted - in the Champions League this season.
In fact, the Blues have scored four penalties in their last five Premier League and Champions League games against Aston Villa, Real Madrid and last Saturday against Everton.
Its 13/8 that a penalty will be awarded in this game and 6/1 that City will score from the spot while its 15/2 with Paddy Power that a penalty will be missed over the 90 minutes.
