Man City or Spurs. Spurs or Man City. It’s the quarter-final tie that guarantees an English presence in this year’s UEFA Champions League semi-finals, but which club will proceed? The tie is on a knife-edge and we’ll make sure that you don’t miss out on a Man City vs Tottenham live stream, regardless of where in the world you are.
When the draw was made, all logic suggested that Manchester City were clear favorites entering into this Champions League football tie across the two legs.
Man City vs Spurs: where and when
The second leg of Man City vs Tottenham in the Champions League quarter-finals takes place at the Etihad Stadium today (Wednesday, April 17).
Kick-off is at 8pm BST in Manchester. That’s 3pm ET, 12pm PT and 5am Thursday morning AEST.
It’s been a phenomenal season for the sky blues, with the chance of an unprecedented quadruple still on the cards as City continue to go toe-to-toe against Liverpool for the Premier League title. And an attacking force that includes Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne is hard to resist for the best of teams.
But it was Spurs who came out on top at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium thanks to a goal from the brilliant Son Heung-min, and they have the advantage as they head up the M1 to Manchester. Without talismanic striker Harry Kane, they’ll be weakened in attack. But this one’s all about defence – will centre backs Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen be able to keep a clean sheet?
