Man City vs Man United: Manchester Derby Betting Preview

Man City vs Man United: Manchester Derby Betting Preview

Pep’s side will look to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table when they take on United in the 177th Manchester derby. Man City look near unstoppable, but Man Utd are unbeaten in their last four Premier League matches as these two bitter rivals prepare to clash in the Manchester derby on Sunday, at the Etihad Stadium.

 

Manchester Utd’s stunning win at Juventus on Wednesday night will give them huge confidence for the Manchester derby at the weekend. Two goals in the final few minutes from Jose Mourinho’s men sealed an unlikely 2-1 Champions League win against Juventus.

Manchester City has started the season in imperious form once again, winning all but two of their Premier League games so far and drawing the other two, and also cruised to a 6-0 win against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.

 

Back in April last season, City surrendered a two-goal half-time lead to lose 3-2 to United in a dramatic Manchester derby. Man City’s goals from Vincent Kompany and Gundogan were canceled out by a Paul Pogba brace and a Chris Smalling goal. United who is looking for a third straight top-flight win has won four of the last eight meetings, while City has won only twice during the same period.

 

United, who beat City 3-2 in the corresponding fixture last season, could register back-to-back league victories at the home of their archrivals for the first time since April 2010 at odds of (7.2) on SportyBet, while another 3-2 win for the Red Devils is available at (18.0). Man City is available at just (1.44) to win the match, whilst the draw can be backed at (5.2) on SportyBet. Man City have failed to win at home to United in each of the last three seasons, even though it’s difficult to see that run continuing through Sunday’s fixture.

 

United haven’t lost on any of their last three matches at the Etihad and a victory on Sunday will see them move to within six points of City, who currently top the table with 29 points from 11 matches. The United defense has allowed goals in the first 25 minutes of their last three away matches in the Premier League, while Manchester City has scored in the first half an hour of eight of their nine matches at home in all competitions. The Red Devils are more than capable of scoring but they are also unlikely to keep a clean sheet, having prevented only Burnley from scoring in six away matches this season.

 

A 2-1 Manchester City win makes some appeal at (7.20) on SportyBet, while a Manchester City win with over 3.5 total goals in the game is (2.27).
