Probably, Englishmen are not yet ready for the season so in the play-off round of Champions League they will not be in good mood. Moreover when you are bet remember that Citizens only now are in the process of adaptation to the new Guardiola requirements. By the way, against Sunderland in the first eleven only two new players appeared - centreback Stones and left winger Nolito. Besides newly signed Sane was not even in the application and Gyundogan was injured. Interestingly, to bet correctly, also team leader Yaya Toure absent as well as left-back Kolarov played in central defense zone, while the main central defender Otamendi was on the bench. All these Guardiola rearrangement will be on hand Steaua which need a result at home to keep the chances of reaching the group before the away match.

However bookmakers do not see a chance for the home team betting on guests: Steaua - 7.00-7.50; draw - 4.00-4.50; Man City - 1.44. Of course Citizens are much stronger. Moreover it is important for Guardiola to reach a group stage of Champions League immediately and not to start career in the new club with failure. May be you can take a bet “Double Chance: Steaua Bucharest or draw” (2.45-2.80) but it seems as a risky one. Man City in Romania will be concentrated on result so we won’t see many goals. That’s why it’s reasonably to take Total Match Goals Under 2.5 (2.05-2.10).
