The Liverpool vs. Manchester City match will be played on Wednesday, April 5, at the Anfield Stadium, Liverpool. This is the first leg of Champions League quarterfinal. Liverpool eliminated Porto in the previous round by 5:0 on aggregate, while Manchester City eliminated Basel in the previous round by 6:1 on aggregate.


  • Liverpool lost only one out of the last ten games in all competitions. They scored seven goals in their last two matches.
  • Manchester City lost one out of their last six games. In their last two games they scored five goals.


In their previous ten meetings, Liverpool recorded five wins, Manchester City won only two matches, while three games ended in a draw. The visitors recorded a victory only once in those ten games.


After losing the game against Manchester United, Liverpool destroyed Watford 5:0 and won the match against Crystal Palace by 2:1 after a comeback. In the league, they are currently eight points in front of fifth-placed Chelsea, but they played one match more than them. However, it seems that the top four finish and Champions League qualification shouldn't be questioned. They reached the last eight of Champions League, which can be considered as a reasonable success, but they want to go even further.

Manchester City already secured the title in the league, and they are focused on Champions League. Liverpool is the only team which defeated them in the league in the season, so Pep Guardiola should be careful in the upcoming match. However, Liverpool's porous defense will hardly manage to save their net against the mighty Manchester City attack.

We expect to see lots of goals in the upcoming game. Liverpool might match Manchester City's firepower up front, but better Manchester City defense should be the key of victory for Pep Guardiola.
