Manchester City suffered their second defeat in the Champions League on Tuesday night with their game against Leipzig finishing 2-1 in Germany.
City had already gained qualification to the next round before the game so they were playing a weaker team with the likes of Joao Cancelo, Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias and Ederson all not in the Starting XI.
Wolves were on a fantastic run of form before they lost 1-0 to Liverpool at the weekend, going W6-D3-L2 in their last eleven games.
The Wanderers are on the exact same points tally as they were at this stage last season, and if they had converted just one of their defeats this season into a victory, this would be their best season since returning to the topflight in 2018/19.
While it’s been a strong resurgence from the midlands club, it should be noted that their output against stronger sides leaves much to be desired as they’ve managed just one goal sides currently above them this season.
That strike came against the Hammers in a 1-0 win, though they’ve been on the wrong side of that margin in all three other such games.
Man City To Win To Nil
Wolves have held their own against City since returning to the Premier League and although the Manchester side edge the head-to-heads, they only just have the majority of wins with a record of W3-D1-L2.
Wolves managed to do the double of Manchester City (2-0, 3-2) in their second year of Premier League action, though last year the inverse happened with Pep Guardiola’s charges getting two victories, with both coming by two goals or more.
Both teams have managed to score in two-thirds of these games, but we wouldn’t be confident of Wolves netting here considering the hosts have conceded in just two of their seven outings at the Etihad this year.
That means that the Citizens have won-to-nil in four of their seven home outings this year, and while their last three victories across all venues have seen them win and concede, Wolves’ scoring record against the bigger sides leaves us siding with the home clean sheet yet again.
City have also managed to score in both halves in all their home games bar two (Palace and Southampton).
However, Wolves have never conceded in both halves in any of their outings this season, and the value certainly looks to be with the home win and clean sheet considering the visitors have also lost-to-nil in 40% of their games this season.
