Balotelli 5-4 for City exit this month after 'bust-up'

REPORTS of a training ground altercation between Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini and Mario Balotelli have led to further speculation over the Italian striker's future.

Hills offer 4-7 that Balotelli is a City player on the first day of February, and 5-4 that he isn't, with loan deals counting.

BetVictor are betting on Balotelli signing permanently for a rival club before the end of the month. Milan are the firm's 2-1 favourites, with Paris St-Germain on offer at 6-1.

Liverpool new boy Dean Sturridge is 6-4 with Hills to make 13 or more starts in the rest of their Premier League campaign. He is also 6-4 to make between six and 12 inclusive. And 9-4 with the firm to make eight or fewer. The Reds have 17 games left.

Key stats
  • Spartak Moscow finished 12 points ahead of Rubin Kazan last season
Expert verdict
Rubin Kazan are a solid unit but have been weakened by the recent departures of Jose Salomon Rondon and Yann M’Vila and may struggle to get their campaign off to a winning start. Spartak Moscow have plenty of goals in their side with Yura Movsisyan and Jurado and can force a draw at the Kazan Arena.
