6th March 2022 – 17:30, Etihad Stadium, Manchester
Manchester City and Manchester United will face each other in the derby match of the Premier League 28th round on Sunday afternoon. The hosts want to keep their top spot intact, while the away side looks forward to staying in the Champions League zone.
Manchester City Preview & Team News
Manchester City will want to continue from where they left off last time out with a 2:0 FA Cup success over Peterborough United. The home side bounced back after losing to Tottenham two rounds ago and celebrated an important win away to Everton. Manchester City hasn’t had any problems scoring, netting in each of their last six matches. They’ve hit an aggregate of 16 during that period and have conceded a total of 3. Although they haven’t shined in the previous three games, the Citizens want to secure a positive result against their local rivals.
Manchester United Preview & Team News
Manchester United drew 0:0 in the Premier League match with Watford in their last fixture. That was a disappointing result for the fans at Old Trafford, but the Red Devils remained 4th on the table. For 5 of the last six clashes involving Manchester United, a comparatively low number of goals have been hit between them and opposing sides. The overall average goals scored per game during that spell comes to just 2.33, with the number of goals averaged by The Red Devils standing at 1.5. Although they haven’t suffered a defeat in the last six games in all competitions, the visitors need more consistency. Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has not got a full squad to pick from. Scott McTominay (ill) and Edinson Cavani (groin strain) will not play in this match.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Neither side has been impressive in the past few weeks, but the hosts are closer to the victory. However, we don’t think Man Utd will lose by more than one goal.
Goals Market Prediction
The Under clashed in the City’s last two games, while seven of the United’s previous eight stayed under a 2.5 margin. We didn’t see more than two goals in their previous six encounters, and we expect the tradition to continue.
