Manchester City are chasing four trophies this season and by the end of the week could have the Carabao Cup back in their trophy cabinet. Before Sunday's final against Chelsea, they travel to Germany for the first leg of their last 16 Champions League tie with Schalke 04. City are unbeaten in their last four league and cup games with 15 goals scored in those matches. It's only the second-half of February but they have already scored 46 goals in 2019, that's compared to the 11 scored by their opponents. They won their Champions League group but didn't have it all their own way with a draw and defeat against Lyon. Only one of their last five away Champions League games has been lost and that was at Liverpool last season. Schalke 04 had a straightforward group and finished second behind Porto and ahead of Galatasaray and Lokomotiv Moscow. They come into this tie against the English Premier League leaders down in 14th place in the Bundesliga. That's only two places above the relegation zone but there is an eight-point difference. Only one of their last five league and cup games has been won and they only have two points from their last four league games. Two of their three home games in their group were won but this is a far more difficult task. Go for Manchester City to get the away win.
Atletico Madrid failed to make the knock-out stages of the Champions League last season but didn't make that mistake this season. They finished second behind Borussia Dortmund but won all three of their home games. They are second in La Liga seven points behind leaders Barcelona climbing above Real Madrid. Current form has been shaky with two losses to Real Madrid and Real Betis but Saturday saw them back in winning ways with a win at Rayo Vallecano. Only Real Madrid have beaten them in their last 17 home games in all competitions. Their last four home games in the Champions League have been won and only Chelsea have beaten them at home since 2015. Juventus won again on Friday and ended the weekend with a lead of 13 points in Serie A. The title looks assured so they can concentrate on trying to win the Champions League. Only one of their last 12 league and cup games has ended in defeat, a 3-0 loss at in-form Atalanta in the Italian Cup. Two of their three away group matches were won. The other was a loss to Young Boys playing a weakened side with qualification already achieved. Before that loss Juventus had won their last five Champions League away games. Juventus are in better form than their opponents and the suggested bet here is a double chance bet on the Italian side to win or draw this game.
