Manchester City – Manchester Utd : Preview & Prediction
Manchester City and Manchester United face off for the third time this season. A derby that is worth a lot in terms of ranking given that the Citizens coached by the Spaniard Pep Guardiola command the Premier League with 65 points in 27 games and the Red Devils led by the Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are second at only four points. It will be difficult for the guests to hold back the impetus of a team that has won uninterruptedly among all competitions since last December 19th and which, always taking all tournaments into consideration, has not lost since November 25th. And also this week, in the midweek round, the Citizens confirmed themselves as a steamroller team by overwhelming Wolverhampton Wanderers 4-1 at home. United have not yet managed to score a goal this season in the previous two against their cousins, but the problem of scoring has also re-emerged in the last few games because after the 0-0 in the return of the 16th of the Europa League last February 25 against Real Sociedad came two more nil draws in subsequent league trips to London, respectively against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Manchester City have won their last 21 games in all competitions and 15 of these are in the Premier League.
Manchester City are unbeaten this season in 28 games with 25 wins and 3 draws.
Manchester United have failed to score in three consecutive competitive matches between the league and the Europa League.
The two previous seasons both played at Old Trafford tell us that in the league it was 0-0 while in the League Cup City won 0-2.
Manchester City are broad favorites in this challenge which could lead to a serious mortgage on the 2020/2021 Premier League title. Field factor and 21 wins in a row are a nice calling card. Inevitable to opt for the 1 mark in the Etihad Stadium challenge.
