Man City if coming off of an impressive victory at home against Burton Albion. Even though Pep Guardiola’s team obviously was superior to Burton Albion it still was an impressive performance. Although some important players sat out that game they were able to put up nine goals while not conceding a single on. It was also great to see Kevin De Bruyne back on the pitch and he instantly made an impact by scoring a goal within the first couple of minutes of the game. Despite facing a weak opponent it is safe to say that Man City’s offense is on fire. They got world class players who can basically score as they want.
Nevertheless they shouldn’t underestimate their opponents. The Wanderers have been playing really well lately and beat Liverpool during the week and won their last road match against Tottenham. Even though they don’t have as many brilliant players it is obvious that they are able to compete on a high level. Their play style is not centered on possessing the ball but much rather patiently waiting for counter attack opportunities. They are willing to give up possession in order to bait their opponents into dangerous situations. This style tends to be rather effective against strong teams than weaker ones. If they have possession of the ball it is more difficult for them to dominate their opponents.
Even though Man City won three of the last five games against Wolverhampton, they should not feel too comfortable. Those three victories were achieved more than six years ago and they have not won a single game against the Wanderers in two years. Wolverhampton managed to collect a point in their match at home this season and they also didn’t lose in regular time in the EFL Cup on the road in 2017.
Ruben Neves is Wolverhampton’s player to watch in this match. He is a young midfielder who is a Portuguese player who was acquired from FC Porto two years ago. He has scored the goal of the week in the FA Cup against Liverpool and is also having a huge impact on Wolverhampton’s game.
Kevin De Bruyne is the Man City player you want to look out for. He is one of the best midfielders in the world and most of the Man City attacks are initiated or influenced by him. He is not only strong on defense but his main focus is creating goal scoring opportunities for his team mates. Moreover he is also able to score goals himself.
Betting on Man City to win seems like the way to go in this match. However, they are 1/6 with Bet365 to win this game and that is not too appealing. Nevertheless we still have some decent options. Firstly, I would recommend looking at both teams to score the betting market.
Both teams to score is currently 8/7 with Betfair , which is really decent in my opinion. The teams are playing an almost completely different style of football and the Wolves should be able to score a goal on the road. Moreover, betting on more than 2.5 goals to be scored at 4/9 with Bet365 is also reasonable.
