Manchester City vs Manchester United Prediction & Betting tips
The “Citizens” start as favorites due to the tremendous collective and offensive potential they possess, which usually increases in a way when they act at home. For this reason and even if United is a rough and tactical opponent, we believe that Guardiola’s boys can win the game. Faced with this reality and knowing the process can be tactical from the initial stage, we believe that the bet “Manchester City will win any half” has value in this opportunity “.
The “Citizens” come from playing against Liverpool for the Champions League last Wednesday (painful defeat 3-0). In the English tournament they beat Everton 1-3 to visit, reaching a total of 84 points. At the moment it takes 16 advantage, being able to win if they win the city’s classic. It is expected that the team does not suffer from the physical, since the effort made before the “Reds” was strong. The same has players of high hierarchy, which have the ability to break the tight defensive fence of his rival.
As a local at Etihad Stadium, Manchester City has won almost every game it has played in the season, demonstrating high offensive and defensive efficiency (14 wins and 1 draw, scoring 51 goals and conceding only 10). It comes from thrashing 5-1 at Leicester and beating Chelsea 1-0. In the previous round of Champions, it fell 1-2 before Basel after winning 0-4 the first leg.
The “Reds Devils” defeated Swansea 2-0 at home in Old Trafford, reaching 68 units in the general table. The team will face this derby for a matter of pride and honor, because if they lose it they will turn over in their faces. Mourinho is expected to raise his famous bus to defend and appeals to the kickback and the balls stopped to score.
Far from Old Trafford, Manchester United has registered acceptable markers, even though he has suffered some setbacks in this condition (8 wins, 3 draws and 4 falls, scoring 25 goals and receiving 16 in his goal). His last departures were as follows: 2-0 defeat with Tottenham, 1-0 loss to Newcastle and 2-3 victory against Crystal Palace. For the Champions, he equaled 0-0 against Sevilla in the Sánchez Pizjuán.
