Gary Neville predicts AS Roma v Manchester City

Manchester United great Gary Neville predicts tonight’s Champions League clash between AS Roma and Manchester City to end in a 1-1 draw.

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has predicted Manchester City to score in the Champions League tonight.

Defending Premier League champions City will take on AS Roma at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome in Group E.

Manuel Pellegrini’s are currently fourth in the group with five points from as many matches. Roma and CSKA Moscow, also on five points, are second and third respectively, while Bayern Munich have won the group with 12.

City need to win tonight to have a realistic chance of progressing to the last 16 of the Champions League, but Neville claims that the Manchester outfit will draw the match.

Roma will be favourites to win heading into the encounter, but City’s recent resurgence could be crucial for them.

City will qualify for the last 16 with a victory in Rome as long as CSKA do not win against Bayern Munich in Germany. The Citizens will also go through with a score-draw if CSKA lose.
