City v Villareal Preview

Sergio Aguero is available for Manchester City’s key Champions League game against Villarreal tonight (7.45pm KO, Live on Sky Sports, and that terrific news ahead of a game where they must get maximum points.

The Argentina striker missed the 4-1 victory against Aston Villa with a groin problem, but came through his latest training session with no problems.

After picking up just one point from their opening two matches in Group A, City boss Roberto Mancini admits that the double header against the Spaniards is likely to prove decisive in City’s attempts to reach the knock-out phase.

The bookies believe that the players will deliver for Mancini tonight, and they are a top priced 1/3 for a victory.

That price looks about right as Villarreal, who finished fourth in La Liga last term, have struggled this season and are a lowly 13th at home after a goalless draw at Getafe on Saturday.

They also have a number of injury problems with forwards Marco Ruben and Nilmar, midfielders Javier Camunas and Marcos Senna and defender Angel Lopez all ruled out of tonight’s clash.

However 1/3 isn’t our sort of price, so why not try a small punt on a 2-0 City win at the standout 13/2 on offer with Unibet.
