The Manchester Derby is about to take place as Manchester City will play host in Manchester United in what is considered one of the best games in world football. Both teams have a lot to play for with the top 4 still not safe so I am expecting a great contest.
Manchester City are coming of a tragic loss to Arsenal in the semi-final of the FA Cup and I think that this will be playing on their mind as they head into what will another massive game for the Manchester side. This team has really underperformed this season but they will be at home and that should give them an added boost for this match.
On the other side of the coin, Manchester United will be on a high making it to the next round of the Europa League. That being said, this team is filled with injuries with the likes of Smalling, Rojo, Ibrahamovic, Phil Jones and even Paul Pogba all either out or in doubt. This will set the Red Devils at a major disadvantage and I think that along with the fact that they are away from home will make this game a little too hard for them.
All in all I am expecting this game to be win for Manchester City. They are at home and have far less injuries. We are not getting a great price on this bet though so I would avoid it. The other bet I like is the over 2.5 goals. Both teams can score and both teams have defensive issues so I think this wager. Both teams to score also makes sense since both teams have goals in them.
