Manchester City

On this page you find articles on Manchester City and sports betting in general.

Paddy Power

1989. That was the last time that Liverpool had managed to beat Manchester City away from home by a 4-1 scoreline. So that result probably would not have been at the forefront of many punters’ minds last weekend when the Reds went to the Etihad for their Premier League match up.

But they came flying out of the blocks and put an impressive win on the board and two punters at Paddy Power hadn’t just settled for a nice return on a 4-1 correct score in favour of Liverpool, they had increased the risk by placing a Philippe Coutinho to score first and Liverpool to win 4-1 scorecast at odds of 500/1.

The two punters are from West Yorkshire and County Down and they each picked up £500 from the match, which did produce a big upset. City defence Eliaquim Mangala had turned the ball into his own net to give Liverpool the lead in the game and as own goals don’t count in the first goalscorer market, Philippe Coutinho, who struck Liverpool’s second after 23 minutes was recorded as the first goalscorer.

With Liverpool 3-1 up at half time in the match the punters had to wait out another 35 minutes before Liverpool struck their fourth through the unlikely source of Martin Skrtel. His slick finish triggered the 500/1 scorecast.

Champions League Betting

Juventus v Manchester City Betting Preview

The Old Lady can book a spot in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League if they can complete the double over Manchester City in the group. After a win at the Etihad, the Italians go as favourites to win the return fixture. A win for Juventus puts them into the next round, while a win for City would guarantee top spot in the group for the Premier League side, which will have a big bearing on the round of sixteen draw. All to play for, can City recover from a bad domestic loss on the weekend?

Online betting site Unibet run a great UEFA Champions League promotion (which also applies to La Liga and the England Premier League). They will refund losing correct score, half time/full time and last goalscorer bets if a goal is scored after the 90th minute. The maximum refund from this good football concession is £50. You can pick up a risk free £20 bet as well when you open an account with Unibet.

Juventus v Manchester City Betting Tips

At least Manchester City do have the cushion of having already qualified, they just need to push on to try and secure top spot. The Citizens took a great 3-1 win at Sevilla on match day four and that was their third win in the group after opening with a home loss against Juventus. With a win on the road at Monchengladbach as well, City are looking for maximum points on the road. In the 2013/14 season the Citizens did win all three of their away games. They don’t have a great record out in Italy though as they only managed to land their first ever win there last year when they took a 2-0 win at Roma. That has left them with a W1 D2 L2 record on Italian soil. It may not be too bad of an idea to at least cover the draw because that would suit the Citizens in their quest for top spot.

Prior to their loss at home against Liverpool on the weekend, the Citizens had put together a nine match unbeaten streak. At least Sergio Aguero made a goalscoring return which is a huge boost for them and he is trading at 11/8 in the anytime goalscorer market for the game. It is likely that the clash in Turin is going to be a tight affair as City’s defence looked a terrible shambles on the weekend so they need to tighten up drastically. They have only earned two clean sheets in their last 14 matches too, so conserving their one point advantage at the head of the group may be better than pushing on for the win. Under 2.5 goals is trading at a price of 8/11 with online betting site Unibet.

Juventus are unbeaten in their last 15 European home matches (won nine) and after a slow start to the season, they have lost just one of their last ten in all competitions. They showed their European savvy in taking the win at the Etihad on Match Day One and the last time that they did host an English side, they thumped Chelsea 3-0 in the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League group stage. The Old Lady can boast a brilliant W12 D5 L3 home record against English sides and so City may have a tough time cracking them. They are one of five teams in the group stage who have yet to suffer defeat and they have Mario Mandzukic as 6/4 anytime goalscorer favourite for the game.

Juventus v Manchester City Betting Odds

Juventus 6/5, Draw 12/5, Manchester City 13/5

Juventus v Manchester City Predictions

A tough game for City to win but a draw will suit them just fine in having to host Monchengladbach at home on Match Day Six to win the group. Juventus are a tough home side to beat so look for the draw in the match as City have looked good on the road this season, but not good enough to win in Turin.

Premier League Betting

Manchester City vs Liverpool Betting Preview

With Arsenal breathing down their necks at the top of the table, will Manchester City be able to hold onto top spot this weekend? They go into Saturday’s evening kick off at home against Liverpool with a five match unbeaten streak going in the top flight. Liverpool’s big success of beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge was quickly undone in their following game, losing at Anfield against Crystal Palace before the international break. Will they suffer on the road at the Etihad?

Manchester City vs Liverpool Betting Tips

The price on the Citizens to win this home fixture will probably appeal to many punters. They were stunted in their last league outing, being held to a 0-0 draw at Aston Villa, which was a bit of a shock. Still, prior to that they had won three games on the bounce in all competitions, scoring ten goals in those three, including an excellent 3-1 win at Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League. Manuel Pellegrini’s men have posted a W5 L1 record at home in the Premier League this season, their only blip being a 2-1 loss against West Ham. Even in that game they peppered the Hammers’ goal but just couldn’t get the breaks they needed. It’s no surprise that they goals have dried up a  little since Sergio Aguero’s injury and they have failed to score in two of their last three Premier League outings.

But they have hit the back of the net in each of their home games this season, scoring 19 goals in their six home fixtures in the English top flight. Wilfried Bony is 6/5 anytime goalscorer favorite, while Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are 9/5 quotes to hit the back of the net. They have far more to offer going forward than Liverpool, whose main striker Christian Benteke is a big 12/5 price to score in the game. City though have conceded in each of their last four home games so it may just be worth titling for both teams to score in the match for a price of 4/5, even though no-one has more clean sheets in 2015 than Joe Hart does.

Man City have won four and lost none of their last six Premier League games against Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium. The Reds have only returned the 13 league goals this season and they have the worst chance conversion rate of any team in the top flight this term. They carded that great 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge at the end of October but then they couldn’t follow it up as they lost 2-1 at home in their final game before the international break against Crystal Palace, who frankly deserved the three points. That defeat snapped a six match unbeaten streak for them in the top flight. Liverpool have posted a W2 D3 L1 record away from A Field this term and that may not be strong enough to take down City. Liverpool have just the two league wins in their last ten played.

Manchester City vs Liverpool Betting Odds

Man City 8/13, Draw 3/1, Liverpool 9/2

Manchester City vs Liverpool Predictions

City have the head to head from going over Liverpool to bank a win here. Even though the Reds claimed that big win at Chelsea, it was just their second away win of the season. A trip to the Champions-elect is going to be a much tougher ordeal for them. City have the pace and creativity to break down the pragmatic Reds and put three points on the board.

Sergio Aguero may be back for Manchester City on Saturday, but given that he has been out injured for a while, he may have to play a part from the bench. So goalscoring focus from the start of the game could rest on the shoulders of Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne for Manchester City as they look to secure their fourth win on the bounce at home in the top flight.

City have netted nineteen goals in their six home matches played so far this season but they will be cautious of Liverpool after the Reds landed a win at Stamford Bridge over Chelsea in their last away game. But City have won four and have gone unbeaten in their last six against the Anfield crew.

Bet Victor

Manchester City had a depleted front line last time out in the Premier League, but they could have Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Wilfried Bony available to play some part in the game. Sergio Aguero is the big name there of course for goals and the Argentine is running at 3/1 in the first goalscorer markets at Bet Victor for Manchester City v Liverpool betting.

Manchester City will be eager to put three points on the board with Arsenal breathing down their necks in the title race. The Citizens have won their last three home games in the top flight, scoring 13 goals in the process. Liverpool scored a great 3-1 win in their last away game, beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Yaya Toure are all 6/1 quotes to open the scoring in the match, while Christian Benteke and Daniel Sturridge are 15/2 shots to net for the visitors. This game kick offs from the Etihad at 5.30 pm on Saturday which means that you have from now until then to take advantage of a great promotion running at Bet Victor.

The big Premier League match of the weekend comes from the Etihad on Saturday where Manchester City host Liverpool. The Citizens are a shot-making machine this term and they have won five of their six home matches this season in the top flight. Will their power and pace be too much for Liverpool on the day?

Or will Liverpool roll into the Etihad and stun the Citizens in their title challenge? The Reds picked up a big win in their last away game, beating Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge. Can they reproduce that kind of solid away performance for Jurgen Klopp in a game where Daniel Sturridge may even be back for the Anfield crew.

The Citizens are 8/13 favourites to pick up the home points, with the draw at 14/5 and Liverpool out at 17/4.

Premier League Betting

Aston Villa v Manchester City Betting Preview

The Citizens will be pretty confident of bagging three points to maintain their position at the top of the Premier League tree this weekend. They take a trip to Villa Park to take on a Villa side who are still on the hunt for their first home league win of the season. This is a top versus bottom clash in the Premier League and Villa, who are on a horrendous losing streak will have a massive task on their hands arresting that poor streak.

Aston Villa v Manchester City Betting Tips

Where is a win going to come from for Aston Villa. They are floundering and scrapping for their lives at the foot of the Premier League table after seven straight defeats. It may well be eight on the weekend as they face the top side in City. Aston Villa have only managed to score in two of their last seven league clashes with Manchester City and with goals hard to come by for them at the moment, a win in this fixture may be a bit of a pipe dream. Aston Villa have lost five and drawn one of their last six home games in the English top flight and in four of those half dozen matches they have failed to score. There has been little joy at Villa Park for fans, it’s hard to see it changing with the change of manager, Remi Garde taking charge for the first time.

So there does appear to be an easy three points on offer for Manchester City. With Arsenal breathing down their neck in the title race, they will welcome it. Manchester City have great form in the head to head against Aston Villa in recent league meetings having won seven of the last eight against the Midlands outfit. Even though Manchester City have picked up just one clean sheet in their last six Premier League matches, punters will probably see big appeal at the 6/4 mark on them to win the game to nil. They are winless in their last two on the road (D1 L1) but won their opening three away from the Etihad. The Citizens have lost just one of their last seven away from home in the top flight, claiming clean sheets in five of them.

So City are likely to bag maximum points and adding a bit of weight to them coming away with a clean sheet, no side has allowed fewer shots on target against them this season than City have. The Citizens have scored four goals in the 88th minute onwards in their last three Premier League meetings with Aston Villa. There’s still no Sergio Aguero but Kevin de Bruyne has scored three and assisted four goals in his last six Premier League appearances and can be backed at 3/2 in the anytime goalscorer market, with Wilfried Bony at even money. Can the Citizens get back to winning ways on the road in the Premier League after their great win at Sevilla in the Champions League during the week?

Aston Villa v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 4/9, Draw 4/1, Aston Villa 13/2

Aston Villa v Manchester City Predictions

Away win. There’s not a lot to say about this one really as it looks cut and dry. Villa may have a bit of extra energy with the new boss in place, but there is no substitute for class and confidence and City are exuding that at the moment and should win comfortably.

Champions League Betting

Manchester City v Sevilla Betting Preview

Kevin de Bruyne was the hero of the hour two weeks ago when he popped up with a 91st minute winner against Sevilla in Group D. That puts the Citizens in second place in the group, three points ahead of third placed Sevilla. So if the Premier League outfit can put another win on the board over the Spaniards, they should be then cruising to the knockout stage. Lose and everything is up the air still. Can the Citizens complete the double over Sevilla?

There is a brilliant risk-free in-play bet promotion over at Ladbrokes for your Man City v Sevilla betting this week. Place a pre-match wager on the game up to £25 and after kick-off, place an in-play wager. If the in-play bet loses then Ladbrokes will refund that stake up to the same value as your pre-match bet (a maximum of a £25 bet refund!)

Manchester City v Sevilla Betting Tips

The Citizens, thanks to some late heroics from Kevin de Bruyne are in decent shape to qualify for the knockout stages. A good performance out in Seville, avoiding defeat primarily, should keep them well on track. The victory over Sevilla two weeks ago was their first win over a Spanish side since 20011, losing five and drawing one of six games before the win. However, you have to consider that they have lost their last three away games on the bounce against Spanish opposition in the UEFA Champions League. Each of those three defeats were by a one-goal margin and if you fancy that trend to continue then you can back the Spaniards to win by 1 goal for a price of 15/4 with Ladbrokes. City are in decent form at the moment though overall, winning five of their last seven in all competitions.

They haven’t been tight at the back though having claimed just one clean sheet in their last eleven matches across all competitions. They have only managed to pick up one in of their last eighteen UEFA Champions League matches. They have scoring power and have been a strong second half team for some reason. Nine of their last ten goals in the competition have come in the second half of matches and with the scoring power of both, it’s worth looking at both teams to score and the game going over 2.5 goals. Wilfried Bony is the shortest priced City option in the anytime goalscorer market at 7/4, with Raheem Sterling and De Bruyne at 2/1. The overall record of City in Spain is a pretty poor W1 D1 L5.

So City can expect a tough game against a very good European home side. Sevilla have lost back to back away games now in Europe after also having lost at Juventus. But they are a different beast at home having won their last ten European home fixtures in a row. Their other home match this season in the UEFA Champions League saw them breeze 3-0 past Monchengladbach. This isn’t going to be an easy fixture for the Citizens. Arsenal were the last English side to go to Sevilla back in the 2007/08 Champions League campaign and were easily beaten 3-1 and that was revenge for Sevilla on that occasion having lost in London. Overall, Sevilla hold an unbeaten W2 D2 home record against English sides.

Manchester City v Sevilla Betting Odds

Man City 6/4, Sevilla 19/10, Draw 13/5

Manchester City v Sevilla Predictions

It’s a tough call on the outcome of this one and it may be worth pushing for the draw. Both have their positive and negatives at the same time and this should be well balanced out in Spain, where City have enjoyed little success. Shoot over 2.5 goals and both teams to score.

Jesus Navas (Manchester City)

Manchester City v Norwich Betting Preview

The sooner that City are able to get Sergio Aguero back firing again the better off they will be in their title challenge. A draw last weekend against rivals Manchester United saw them afford Arsenal the chance to pull level on points with them. So the pressure is on City to keep performing, especially at home and they will be eying up a comfortable three points as they host the Canaries who have lost their last three Premier League outings.

Online betting site Paddy Power have a great promotion open for customers. Register an account with them and place £20 or more in single bets before kick off and get £10 in free bet to use in-play on that game. This fantastic free bet offer only applies to live matches involving Premier League teams on Sky Sports and BT Sports.

Manchester City v Norwich Betting Tips

Can the Citizens keep their noses in front at the top of the table this weekend? They are running as strong favourites to do so. The Citizens have only lost two of their previous 14 Premier League matches against Norwich, winning exactly half of those 14 matches. There have been a few glitches in City’s title challenge recently as they have won just two of their last five played (L2 D1) that was in contrast to their eleven match winning streak before that. The Citizens have won four of their five home games though this season, scoring seven goals in their five home fixtures.

Reasonable chance then that this one will go over 2.5 goals which can be backed at a price of 4/9 with online betting site Paddy Power. City’s 0-0 draw at Old Trafford last weekend has been their only clean sheet in their last five Premier League matches surprisingly, after not conceding in any of their opening five games of the season. Manchester City to win to nil is up at a price of 11/10 and in the anytime goalscorer market, with Sergio Aguero missing, Raheem Sterling, Kelechi Iheanacho, Wilfried Bony and Kevin De Bruyne are all around the even money mark to net.

The Canaries are on the slide going winless in their last five Premier League matches (D2 L3). They have lost their last three outings conceding a total of nine goals in the process so big problems at the back. Norwich have yet to pick up a clean sheet at all this season (the only side not to have done so) which is the last thing you want to hear for a trip to the Etihad. Interestingly the Canaries have scored three own goals in their last four top-flight clashes with the Citizens as well. The last time they went to City they were hammered 7-0.

Manchester City v Norwich Betting Odds

Man City 2/7, Draw 11/2, Norwich 25/2

Manchester City v Norwich Predictions

The Citizens have hit the back of the net with two or more goals in 11 of their last 12 Premier League home games at the Etihad. With Norwich yet to have earned a clean sheet this looks as if there will only be one outcome in the game. A good City win and worth pushing out for a Man City – Man City Half Time/Full Time bet.

28th October 2015 / Lee A Jackson - Category: Premier League Betting


There is a decent chance of a rainfall of goals at Old Trafford on Sunday in the Manchester derby. There have been an average of 4.1 goals per game in the last ten meetings between the two rivals. With City have fired off eleven goals in their last two Premier League matches and Manchester United having scored exactly three goals in four of their last five league matches, then there should be plenty of attacking excitement in the match up.

The Red Devils start the weekend in third place, two points back of league leaders City so there are huge title points on the line in this derby clash, where United are trading at 7/5 for the win, with City at 7/4 and the draw, of which there have been none in the last 12 Manchester derbies, at 23/10 with Ladbrokes.

If both teams to manage to score in the match then online betting site Ladbrokes will give you a free bet back up to £25.

This is an insurance offer for the Man Utd v Man City match on Sunday 25th October 2015 for customers who register an account with Ladbrokes. The great offer applies to losing Match Betting (Win Draw Win), Correct Score, First Goalscorer and Half Time/Full Time bets placed on the match prior to kick off. So if your first losing bet on any of the markets goes down but both teams score, that’s a free bet back for you.
