The Premier League puts on its gala dress for an exceptional match. The always-relevant Manchester Derby features two teams with different realities as City and United clash on the field.

The Citizens have been the best team in England this calendar year, with a draw against Chelsea sandwiched between pure victories. In their last match for the league, they surpassed a great challenge against Bournemouth 0-1, while in the FA Cup, they thrashed Luton 6-2 some days ago with five Erling Haaland goals and four assists by De Bruyne.

The Red Devils were on a roll, accumulating five victories in a row in all competitions before a late Fulham goal by Iwobi shocked them at Old Trafford. Midweek, they surpassed Nottingham Forest in a tight match decided by a late Casemiro’s goal.

Why Bet on Manchester City?

Manchester City will be the hosts, and the team is on excellent form, having four wins and a draw in their last five. They have two triumphs in a row, the aforementioned victory over Bournemouth and another against Brentford by the same result. They are one point behind the leaders, Liverpool, with a record of 18 wins, five draws, and three losses.

Even though the men under Pep Guardiola have managed to win 8 out of their latest 10 Premier League games, some of those recent victories have come by only a single goal. In one part, their usually brutal offense seems to be decelerating, while the defense has been improving. They started the season conceding goals in many games in a row, so that’s pretty positive.

They have been chasing a relentless Liverpool and fighting with an improving Arsenal at the top of the table, but the team hasn’t always looked convincing, as they should by this point.

Why Bet on Manchester United?

The Red Devils have lost yet another good winning streak with a lost. That has already happened a couple of times this season, adding the periods of defeats in a row. As a result, they have already doubled digits in losses, a poor number for a team with high expectations. The club is 15 points behind their current opponents, with a record of 14 wins, two draws, and ten losses in their season.

Manchester United has to start picking the pace back up, as they managed to follow up their aforementioned dramatic loss to Fulham for the Premier League with a reasonably unconvincing win away at Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup.

These last two results are not what you’ll expect them to strive for as they enter the Manchester Derby.

Manchester City vs. Manchester United Final Betting Analysis:

Some years ago, the Manchester Derby was pretty balanced, even if Manchester United was already far from its best. However, after Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s departure, four of the last five classics have gone City’s way. That is as many as in the thirteen games before that.

Their last clash this season was a 0-3 in favor of the Sky-Blues in Old Trafford, with an Erling Haaland double and a Phil Foden goal. The Norewian-English pair has been especially dangerous for the Red Devils, as let’s remember that in the first derby last season, they got two hatricks, one for each.

As with almost all Manchester Derbies, it’ll be tight at the beginning, but the victory will go to the locals by 3-1.
