Manchester United vs Manchester City: betting predictions, tips, and odds

We expect an amazing atmosphere at the Old Trafford this weekend as local rivals Manchester United and Manchester City will be facing each other at 16:30 on Sunday, 8th of March in the 29th round of the Premier League.

Manchester United vs Manchester City betting preview and match odds

It seems that Manchester United have finally found some form over the past few months as they head into this tie on the back of an eight-game unbeaten streak across all competitions. After a two-legged match against Club Brugge in the Europa League which has seen Man Utd win 6-1 on aggregate, the Red Devils have only managed a 1-1 draw at Everton in the Premier League at the weekend. Due to their recent form, Ole’s men now sit 5th in the league table tied on 42 points with 6th-placed Wolves, and just three points adrift of 4th-placed Chelsea. Manchester United have been impressing at the back over the past few months, having kept six clean sheets in their last eight competitive games. They haven’t scored many goals in this term but still managed to find the back of the net in seven of the last eight matches. As for their home form in the Premier League this season, the Red Devils are the 4th best home side in the division after losing just two of their 14 league matches.

Manchester United are hugely priced at odds of 5.30 with 1xBet to get a victory here, while Manchester City’s price for a win is only 1.65 with BetBonanza:

On the contrary, Manchester City will enter the fray on very high spirits after a tremendous victory at Real Madrid in the Champions League a week ago and a narrow 1-2 win against Aston Villa in the final of the Carabao Cup. This is the first trophy of the season for Pep Guardiola & Co. and despite the fact, they can’t win the Premier League title anymore, they will still want to secure a victory over their rivals on Sunday. Although Liverpool has lost 3-0 at Watford at the weekend, they still have 22 more points than Manchester City. Manchester City’s form on the road over the past three months has seen them win ten of their last twelve competitive trips. Furthermore, the Citizens have won in each of their last three visits to Old Trafford, having scored at least two goals in each of those games. It should be interesting to see Pep’s squad rotations for the next games as City need to play against Manchester United and Burnley in the Premier League before hosting Real Madrid at the Etihad Stadium on 17th of March.

Manchester United vs Manchester City betting predictions and tips

I’m confident that the fans of both these two teams are expecting an entertaining match, but we’re not so sure about this. These two sides have been pretty solid at the back over the past few months and both have scored few goals in the Premier League recently. If we take a closer look at the above match stats we can see that both sides have been involved in a couple of low-scoring affairs of late.

We can’t see too many goals being scored here, so our betting tips and predictions for this game are:

  • Under 2.5 goals at odds of 2.30 with 1xBet
