Home I Football I Manchester Derby Betting Preview
Etihad Stadium hosts one of the biggest rivalries in the world – the Manchester Derby. In addition to the rivalry between Manchester United and Manchester City, we also have the fascinating duel between Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho.
Manchester United is going through a great moment. Besides their recent qualification for the Europa League semi-finals, they have also already managed to move up to the 5th spot of the Premier League table.
However, the team can’t count on Zlatan Ibrahimovic after his devastating injury against Anderlecht. With 28 goals this season, Zlatan was without any doubt the team’s main star and it won’t be easy for Marcus Rashford to replace him.
Fourth place is at stake on this game, with only one point separating the two teams. Despite United’s recent streak, it won’t be easy for the Red Devils to win this derby without Ibrahimovic. Adding to this, Marcos Rojo is also unavailable for this game due to a major injury.
On the other hand, Pep Guardiola failed to meet expectations on his debut season in Manchester. Besides their disappointing campaign in the EPL, Manchester City suffered a shocking defeat against Monaco in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16. With only two wins over their last seven games, this is not the best moment for the Citizens to play against their biggest rivals.
Looking at the prices available on the winners market, Manchester City is the main favorite to win this game @1.91 at Bet365. Although we understand the Citizens’ favoritism for this game, there is absolutely no value on their current odds. In contrast, the outsiders might surprise on this game and their Asian Handicap 0 @3.24 at Pinnacle presents a tremendous value for this derby.
Despite Ibrahimovic’s absence, Manchester United should score at least one goal on this game. For that reason, Both Teams to Score @1.73 with 888sport is a great line to take after United’s great performance in the game against Chelsea earlier this month.
Besides the DNB option on the Red Devils, you can also find their Double Chance or Asian Handicap +0.5 @2.06 at BetVictor. This bet also covers the draw and is a great option for those who want to take a lower risk but still place an extremely valuable bet.
