Man City were slightly surprise losers of the first leg of their Europa League tie against Sporting Lisbon but it wasn’t a huge surprise for users of ValueChecker with Sporting Lisbon being highlighted as one of the ValueChecker Value Bets ahead of that match. Can ValueChecker continue its good form ahead of the second leg on Thursday night?

Do the ValueChecker Value Bets once again go for Sporting Lisbon to win this match or will they be predicting another home win in the Europa League. The Value Bets are based on a statistical analysis of previous form and it seems Man city’s recent faltering means that Sporting Lisbon are once again value to grab a win and knock Man City out of the competition. Sporting Lisbon are a whopping 14.0 to win this match but ValueChecker thinks they should actually be much closer to 2.58 and as a result of that huge price difference this bet has been assigned a value rating of 0.34.

The Man City ValueChecker wikis suggest that Sporting Lisbon do have their work cut out though because of Man City’s incredible home record this season. Man City have been unbeatable at Eastlands in the Premiership this season and in fact have won fourteen out of fourteen home matches scoring a massive 42 goals and conceding just 6 times! It would take a massive effort for Sporting to win this one but a draw would be good enough to see them through so that may be Sporting’s best chance of progression.
