Burton vs Manchester City Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 23rd January 2019
Burton vs Manchester City – Carabao Cup :In 13th place of the League One, Burton comes into this 2nd leg of the semi-finals of the EFL Cup only to play for pride
That’s because they were slaughtered at the Etihad Stadium by losing against Manchester City on the first leg by an unforgivable 9-0.
Guardiola’s team solved the round and Burton is already out, having apparently resented this elimination in the league, with the loss on the reception to Gillngham (2-3) and the draw away from home at Doncaster (2-2) in the last couple of rounds of the 3rd tier of English football.
On the other side, we have a Manchester City that is going through their best moment of form of the season, after some results and performances that generated some doubts.
With the victory over Liverpool 3 rounds ago, the team is now only 4 points away from the Premier League’s leaders, where they managed to win 3-0 in the last round away from home against Huddersfield Town, in what was the 6th consecutive win for the citizens in all competitions.
Burton vs Manchester City – Betting Tip and Prediction: :
On a knockout tie that is already solved, we shouldn’t be surprised if Guardiola starts with a line-up composed of several usual second choices and even some youngsters from Manchester City’s youth academy.
At home, Burton will certainly try to close down the paths to their own goal and avoid exposing themselves, in order not to get run over like they were in Manchester on the first leg.
Adding those two arguments, I believe that this will be a match where City will look to have control, retaining possession, not allowing the opposition great whims, but not looking to score as hard as they did in the first leg, even because they should start with players without the same collective rhythm as they did at the Etihad.
