Betting on Manchester City

Manchester City vs Liverpool Predictions Picks Betting Odds

Manchester City seeks to establish itself as the world’s top team. Pep Guardiola, who has been routinely denied the Champions League since he joined the Citizens, is on a mission to accomplish that. The start he had in both the Premier League and the Champions League suggests that this is the year to put an end to that curse.

As the players that participated in the World Cup are not back to the team yet, it makes sense that he will use the bulk of substitutes for this match. Only early exits Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan are available. Guardiola complained about the cup schedule and will now have to turn to young players. City just defeated Spain’s Girona 2-0 in a friendly match.

Probable lineup (4-3-3): Stefan Ortega, Rico Lewis, Shea Charles, Jadel Katongo, Sergio Gomez, Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan, Cole Palmer; Riyad Mahrez, Erling Haaland, Morgan Rogers.

Betting on Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp is in a similar scenario to his colleague Pep Guardiola, as several of his usual first-choice players are away at the World Cup. Colombian Luis Daz’s injury, which will keep him off the field for several months, dealt them a further setback.

However, if you look at the names at the German coach’s disposal, it is clear that he has an advantage, as many of those who will play have a lot of experience in the first division. In the friendly matches prior to the return to official competition, the Reds lost 3-1 to Lyon and beat Milan 4-1.

Probable lineup (4-3-3): Caoimhin Kelleher, James Milner, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez, Andrew Robertson, Harvey Elliott, Stefan Bajcetich, Thiago Alcantara, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

In terms of the players they will field, Liverpool has a significant advantage over a decimated Manchester City, who must rely on young players without any first-team experience. Liverpool will certainly benefit from this and we predict they’ll win by a huge margin.

Prediction: Liverpool wins 3-1.
