Manchester City complete their Champions League last-16 tie with Dynamo Kiev this evening, with the Citizens universally expected to progress.
After recording a 3-1 first-leg win in the Ukrainian capital, those who want to back the hosts to book a maiden quarter final berth in this competition can get paid out at 1/100 with bwin.
Prices such as these are too short for even the insanely rich to take advantage of, but there’s no need to back this when there’s a mint to be made lumping on a home win with both teams to bag.
The bookies in black and gold have attributed this eventuality odds of 21/10 and, based previous outcomes, it’s just as likely to land as the City to qualify wager.
Each of the Citizens’ home games in the competition this season and last have seen both teams find the net.
The same applies to cup games of any description held at the Etihad in 2015/16, of which there have been six in total, while City have only surrendered the spoils in one of these, against beaten Champions League finalists Juventus.
Looking at divisional form alone, no team in England’s top-flight has won more matches at base camp than Manuel Pellegrini’s men, who have vanquished ten visitors this term.
Six of these ten wins also saw the both teams to score backers paid out.
Dynamo aren’t the type of team to shy away from the scoresheet either.
They’ve been on target in each of their Champions League road games this term and only failed to score on their travels just once across all competitions.
A propensity to notch away from home should not convince punters Dynamo will do anything but lose here.
In 13 trips to England, two draws is the best they’ve managed.
