MCI vs TOT Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
English Giants get ready to clash in the second leg of the quarterfinals in the UEFA Champions League as Manchester City host Tottenham Hotspurs on Wednesday.
Manchester City are the second-placed side in the Premier League and are also the defending champions of that competition. They have some success in Europe and the major reason for bringing in Pep Guardiola as the head coach was to make some waves in the UEFA Champions League. He hasn’t had the best of outing but slowly but surely are making some positive steps in the right direction. Even though they are down by a 1-0 aggregate, they have all the advantages for them by killing off this tie at their home ground. This team has unbelievable firepower, and this might be the perfect time to deploy it all to make a statement.
On the other hand, Tottenham Hostpurs are in the third spot in the same league but are nowhere near have the same level of prowess. The squad depth has been the Achilles Heel for the club for the last few years, and that has to be a focus now after the team finally got their new stadium functioning. The team has one of the best starting XI in the world, but due to some injuries, will have to adapt and adjust. Mauricio Pochettino outthought and outsmarted his contemporary, but needs to do more than that here in order to come out on top as winners.
