Manchester city dropped points against Aston Villa in their last premier league game. The skyblue team draw for the second time in the 2022/23 premier league season. However, they will travel to Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan stadium and play against Sevilla in their UEFA champions league opening fixture on Tuesday night. Sevilla lost heavily against Barcelona in their last night’s game and this suggest why Manchester city are the favourites to win the fixture this week.
