Liverpool host Manchester City in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals.  Game preview and odds.  Bet on it! One of the most intriguing Champions League quarter-final match-ups will see Liverpool square off against Manchester City. According to major sports books, this match is expected to be the closest of the four quarter-final match-ups.

While Manchester City is widely regarded as being one of the top couple of clubs in the world, there is a growing feeling that Liverpool may be the team to knock Man City from the Champions League tournament.

In fact, Liverpool is proving to be one of the most popular wagers with punters when it comes to winning the entire Champions League tournament. So much money is pouring in on Liverpool, in fact, that the odds of them winning have dipped as low as 11/1 at some sports books.

Where is this optimism about Liverpool's chances coming from? It's likely due to the fact that Liverpool is the lone team to hand Manchester City a loss in English Premier League action so far this season. While Man City boasts an extremely impressive record of 26-3-1, their lone loss came against Liverpool earlier in the year. In addition, Liverpool has looked extremely strong as of late - aside from a 2-1 loss to Manchester United on March 10th, Liverpool has not lost a match in nearly 2 months.

While Manchester City is clearly the more talented team, there is a thought that Liverpool may be the team to beat them.

Both teams are having great seasons, though Man City would be met with a crushing disappointment if they ended up bowing out in the quarter-finals to Liverpool.

Liverpool, on the other hand, has a very good chance of qualifying for Champions League next year due to their strong showing in the EPL, so they are playing with practically nothing to lose, which can be dangerous for an opponent.

Can Liverpool pull off the upset?
