Match Betting (1x2)

Manchester City look unlikely to win the Premier League title this season due to Liverpool’s runaway success, although Pep Guardiola’s side did land the two domestic cups last term and will want to retain those particular titles.

City have drawn Manchester United in the semi-finals of this season’s competition and they’ll be relatively happy at the prospect of facing the Red Devils over two legs, especially as the Red Devils’ form has been so erratic.

The first leg takes place at Old Trafford and Manchester City are a 7/10 chance to claim a first leg victory before the teams then meet in the second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

Guardiola will certainly be making the short journey with his team to win the game and we should expect a strong team to be fielded, although some might feel as though United are going to be tough to beat in front of their own supporters.

Let’s not forget that the Red Devils recently beat their city rivals and BetVictor offer an eye-catching 18/5 about United claiming a victory in front of their own supporters and having an advantage to take to the Etihad Stadium.

The draw would mean there is still everything to play for, with William Hill offering 3/1 that this game ends all square and we could see a cagey encounter considering that City won’t want to be caught on the break.

To Qualify

You can bet on which team triumphs over the two games and Ladbrokes offer 1/6 that Manchester City take their place in yet another EFL Cup final under Pep Guardiola.

This has become a competition where the Spaniard is accustomed to experiencing success and he can simply field second string players and still prosper against Premier League opponents.

The Red Devils are a 6/1 poke to make the EFL Cup final and they will hope to serve it up to their opponents, with Solskjaer desperate to win a trophy at Old Trafford during his first full season.

Asian Handicap

There is always the possibility that Manchester City can run riot in a game like this, especially if Solskjaer decides that Premier League form is more important at this moment in time.

BetVictor offer 13/18 about the visitors with a -0.5 goal disadvantage, while you can get City -1 at 24/19 and that looks an attractive way of getting with the favourites.

Alternatively, you might think that Manchester United can avoid defeat in this clash and BetVictor have 16/13 about the Red Devils with a +0.5 goal advantage.

Both Teams to Score

We think both teams will show plenty of attacking intent which is what happened recently at the Etihad Stadium and you can back the “Yes” option on the Both Teams to Score market at 7/10.

Alternatively, for those that think that at least one team will draw a blank, odds of 5/4 are available that the “No” option cops.
