Bookmakers Betfred make the English Champions 4/7 to qualify from Group D which includes nine time winners Real Madrid, Dutch champions Ajax and German table toppers Borussia Dortmund.
Betfred spokesman Mark Pearson,
"Man City are second favourites to top the group behind Spanish giants Real Madrid but we still think Mancini's men have the quality to qualify from Group D. Last year's campaign will have given them the experience ready for another tough test."
Manchester United are 1/20 to qualify from Group H, Arsenal 2/5 from Group B while the current European Champions Chelsea are 4/9 to progress from Group E.
Meanwhile Celtic look up against it and are 8/1 to qualify from Group G which consists of Barcelona, Benfica and Spartak Moscow.
