Manchester City vs Southampton Prediction & Betting tips
An interesting match in this Wednesday’s match will be played by Manchester City and Southampton for a new Premier League date.
Manchester City :
In my opinion, the “Citizen” box is a favorite due to the collective and offensive potential that has, which usually increases greatly when acting at Etihad Stadium. For this reason and even if the Sotton is a difficult to overcome, we advise you to play a few euros to the bet “Manchester City will score in the first half”. It is hoped that its lines will advance from the initial pitazo and take advantage of the bands.
Take into account that Manchester City arrives toned after winning 1-2 to Huddersfield on the hour and to add 37 points in total. The team has won many consecutive games, maintaining itself as a solid leader of the competition. The goal of the team is to extend their distance with United, taking advantage of their great collective style.
On the other hand do not forget that the “Citizen” box has added positive results in his field, after winning all the matches he played except for the 1-1 match against Everton (24 goals in favor and 4 against). It comes from beating Burnley 3-0 and overcoming Arsenal 3-1.
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Southampton thrashed 4-1 to Everton as home and reached the 16 units in the general table. The team cut a streak of several games without winning, being their goal to move away from the direct relegation zone. Of course, you need to be more balanced between the lines, scoring and conceding goals with great ease in your presentations.
To finish we tell you that the “Sotton” has registered different markers playing in this condition, after winning 1 matches, to equal 2 others and to lose the remaining 2 that disputed (3 concrete targets and 6 received on their fence). They come from losing 2-1 to Stoke, drawing 1-1 with Brighton and falling 3-0 against Liverpool.
After all I said I play for the bet Manchester City scored in the first half because of the following reasons: First because Manchester City is a tanned and explosive thanks to the philosophy of coach Pep Guardiola. Therefore, it is expected that he can handle the times from the initial pitazo and have various goal situations. Second because the “Citizen” box strikes a lot when playing at Etihad Stadium, its goal is to get a quick advantage and not to complicate the account. And third, because Southampton, despite being an eleven with good players, can end up yielding somewhat in the initial stage by the tremendous pressure of its rival. Of course, the goal can also fall for some punctual play.
