Get an added edge on your Manchester City v Sevilla goalscorer bets for Wednesday's Champions League clash with the football betting offers at William Hill.

Manchester City picked up where they left off before the international break and dished out another thrashing at the Etihad on Saturday, this time it was Bournemouth on the receiving end as the game ended 5-1. Manuel Pellegrini's side are top of the Premier League, but must now switch their attentions to the Champions League. Their Group D campaign began with a 1-2 defeat at home to Juventus, but having bounced back to beat Borussia Mönchengladbach 1-2 in Germany, City will have high hopes of picking up 3 further points here.

Sevilla could only draw 1-1 away at Eibar at the weekend and look to be struggling for any kind of consistency, though did beat Barcelona 2 games back, so a lot will depend on whether they turn up on the night. Unai Emery's side eased to a 3-0 win against Borussia Mönchengladbach on matchday 1, but were not at the same level when losing 2-0 away to Juventus and will need to improve to get a result on Wednesday night.

The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 from 19:45 (BST) and is sure to appeal to both casual punters and professional gamblers. Man City have been installed as favourites, but Sevilla's record in European football means this could be a close game and there is plenty of value to be had in the First Goalscorer market.

Goalscorer Second Chance

With Sergio Aguero injured, Wilfried Bony stepped up to the plate to score twice in Saturday's easy win over Bournemouth and the Ivorian powerhouse is sure to be well backed in the First Goalscorer market. He'll be supported by hat-trick hero Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne who have both been in great form of late, while the likes of Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri are also worthy of consideration from the City midfield.

Kevin Gameiro got the opener against Borussia Mönchengladbach and found the net against Eibar, so looks to be Sevilla's best hope of scoring first, though Ciro Immobile is a viable alternative to the Frenchman. Juan Antonio Reyes and Vitolo will probably occupy the flanks with the likes of Vicente Iborra and Steven N'Zonzi other midfield options to consider.
