Man City v Man Utd Betting Preview

One of the Premier League’s marquee matchups is set for Sunday, as Manchester City host Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.

City’s title defence seemed to wobble after a 1-1 draw with Chelsea a fortnight ago, but they’ve since steadied the ship with narrow 1-0 victories over Brentford and Bournemouth. Pep Guardiola’s squad also stormed into the FA Cup quarter-finals, with Erling Haaland leading the charge by scoring five in a 6-2 thrashing of Luton Town midweek.

City fans are eager for a repeat performance against their fiercest rivals, Manchester United, this weekend.

Just as it looked like United had found their form, a 2-1 defeat at home to Fulham last Saturday ended their four-game winning streak. However, Erik ten Hag’s side quickly returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory at Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup on Wednesday night.

Outright Betting Manchester City, having won five of their last six encounters with United, are the clear favourites at 2/7 with Bet365. Manchester United, looking for their first win at the Etihad since 2021, are priced at 10/1.

Betting Tips Erling Haaland to score and Casemiro to commit a foul, offered at 4/5 on Bet365.

Haaland, fresh from his five-goal haul against Luton, is in formidable form and has an impressive record against United, having scored five goals in his three previous Premier League appearances against them. Given United’s struggle to keep clean sheets—just one in their last nine league games—I’m backing Haaland to find the net again.

To enhance the odds to 4/5, I’m also betting on Casemiro to commit at least one foul during the match. The United midfielder averages 1.5 fouls per game this season and has been booked at least once in nine of his 13 league matches.
