Man Utd v Man City Betting Tips & Predictions
Sometimes a bet on the Full-Time Result market makes the most appeal and that is certainly the case for Tuesday’s EFL Cup clash at Old Trafford where Manchester United host their neighbours.
Manchester City are currently failing in their attempt to land a third successive Premier League title due to Liverpool’s astonishing form this season, although they are still competing on all four fronts and can be taken to win this game.
Pep Guardiola’s side were given a handy draw on Saturday when hosting Port Vale and that is likely to have seen the Spaniard field a very inexperienced side against League Two opponents so that the first-teamers are nicely rested for this encounter.
Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero, Bernardo Silva and Kyle Walker were among those who actually started the recent victory over Everton on the bench, with City having the quality to claim a victory against a Manchester United side who have a much tougher FA Cup assignment previous to this fixture.
It could be the case that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keeps his powder dry for an EFL Cup semi against City rather than an FA Cup third round clash against Wolves, although it’s not to say that his first team is altogether convincing.
While United did recently win at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League, this owed plenty to some early counter-attacking before the Red Devils defended for their lives and escaped with a maximum haul by the final whistle.
At home, they will be expected to attack more and not defend as deeply, with the Citizens waiting to pick them off and hopefully be well in the ascendancy before the second leg clash.
City are a decent price to win and they have a lively chance as they look to retain this particular trophy and make sure it’s a successful season domestically.
