Contributor’s Pick

According to Manchester City vs Bristol City H2H Stats, Manchester City have won three, drawn one and lost one of their previous five meetings with Bristol City.

Bristol City have already done the unimaginable by progressing so far into the competition, but Manchester City have arguably been the best side in Europe so far and it will take nothing less than a miracle for Bristol City to defeat Pep Guardiola’s side over two legs.

Pep Guardiola is likely to rotate as games come thick and fast to keep his side fresh for the business end of the competitions, but Manchester City are still the favorites.

A 3-0 win for Manchester City is the most likely result in the first leg.
