Manchester City vs Leicester City Football Betting Tips

Can the team repeat this feat?
Manchester City – Statistics & Current Form
The last three results: 1: 0 vs. Burnley 2: 0 vs. 0. Manchester United, 1-0 vs. Tottenham Hotspur
He staggered, but he did not fall: Leaders Manchester City did not always make the most confident impression in recent weeks – and yet the SkyBlues in the league rushed from victory to victory.
Towards the Tottenham Hotspur, for example, the team narrowly won in the third duel within eleven days two weeks ago, but earned 1-0. The previous clash with the Spurs City could decide for themselves, but the 4: 3 success in the quarter-final second leg of the Champions League was ultimately not enough for advancement: The away goals rule cost the SkyBlues after the 0-1 defeat in the first leg of the semi-finals.
After they had successfully taken revenge in the league after all, stood with Manchester United, the next top opponent in front of the door: In the city derby against the hated archrival was not just about prestige and the supremacy in the traditional workers’ city – it was also about the English champion crown: Previously, City had been only Liverpool FC hunters, who greeted with a game lead from the top. However, with their 2-0 win against the Red Devils, the team secured the place in the sun.
Of a playful fireworks could not speak in Derby. At half time it was 0: 0, only after about one hour succeeded City, the oppressive superiority in terms of possession, even in promising scoring opportunities.
Similarly slow in the following week was Manchester’s appearance against Burnley. As expected, the Clarets barricaded their own casings with a man and a mouse and thus visibly presented problems for City: for more than 60 minutes Pep Guardiola’s team ran unsuccessfully before Sergio Agüero redeemed his team with a 1-0 winner.
The bottom line is that City is in five wins and seems to be on its way to defending the English championship. In footballing terms, the team still had some room to go in recent weeks – but in the end, it was also the champion’s qualities to win without a great shine.
Possible lineup Manchester City
Guardiola surprised Burnley with a 4-2-3-1 over the weekend, but he was not too satisfied with his experiment. Against Leicester, the Spaniard should therefore probably return to its usual formation – also in terms of personnel.
Ederson – Walker, Kompany, Laporte, Zinchenko – D. Silva, Gundogan, De Bruyne – B. Silva, Aguero, Sterling
Leicester City – Statistics & Current Form
The last three results: 3: 0 vs. Arsenal, 2: 2 vs. West Ham United, 0: 1 Vs. Newcastle United
Leicester City caused a surprise last weekend when coach Brendan Rodgers’s team beat Arsenal 3-0. Thus, the Foxes, at this time table tenants, beat an individually superior team – and yet the success had been announced.
With the Gunners they met one of the strongest clubs in the league, but at the same time provide the Londoners at best, an average team. When Arsenal defender Maitland-Niles also saw the red card in the 36th minute, it is finally clear that Leicester won the duel. Thanks to goals from Jamie Vardy and Youri Tielemans, this was finally even clear: The 3-0 win was Leicester’s second highest win of the season.
Previously, the Foxes had far less reason to celebrate: they did not beat West Ham United on Matchday 35 by beating them 2-1, before losing to Newcastle United (0-1). The two dampers took the team strong wind from the sails, after it had previously collected five wins from six league games. With the threesome against Arsenal, it was possible to revive the positive impression of this phase – which could still be worth it: As a table goal, the Foxes still have realistic chances for the Europa League. The seventh Wolverhampton Wanderers are only three points away. Alone: With Manchester City and Chelsea, Leicester face heavyweights in the final weeks of the season. And that the coming duels against top teams as pleasing end as the last game against Arsenal, may be loudly doubted
Possible lineup Leicester City
Leicester coach Rodgers saw a strong showing against a strong opponent last weekend. Accordingly, he could use the concept of the match against Arsenal as a model. The following formation seems conceivable under this premise:
Flattery – Ricardo Pereira, J. Evans, Maguire, Chilwell – Ndidi – Albrighton, Tielemans, Choudhury, Maddison – Vardy
Our Betting Tips Explained Manchester City vs Leicester City
On the betting market, the situation is more than clear: Manchester City is a clear favorite with odds well below the value limit (around 1.15), while Leicester City promises double-digit profit margins (around $ 15.00).
The estimation of the bookmakers is understandable: Not only is ManCity the best individual and playfully strongest team in the league, the team also receives Leicester in front of their home crowd. At Etihad Stadium, the SkyBlues scored 51 out of 54 possible points. A bearish value – and a harbinger of what we probably expect on Monday night: a one-sided game with a clear dominator.
For as strong as Leicester last weekend also played against Arsenal (3-0): To compare the outwardly weak Gunners Manchester City in top form, lacking any basis. Therefore, it can be assumed that the Foxes in Etihad Stadium will have every effort not to sink without singing and soundless – but from a success in this mission, one should not go out.
Sure Bet: victory for Manchester City and over 2.5 goals
