Manchester City FC
Manchester City are coming off a disappointing 2-1 away loss to Wolverhampton in the EPL. Alvarez scored the only goal for the Citizens in that game from a free kick. The UCL 23/24 odds for Man City are enticing because they will get Rodri back in this game, as he is only suspended from the domestic competitions, so that’s a huge boost for them.
