Manchester United – Man City Tip 29.10.2023

The odds of the Manchester derby are in favour of the citizens.

The top match of the 10th matchday of the Premier League will take place late Sunday afternoon in Manchester.

There, the Red Devils receive the Skyblues. It’s derby time once again! And by now we are in the hot phase of the season.

As we all know, the championship cannot be won in the fall, but it can be lost. After three must-win defeats before the international break, the Cityzens came back well recently.

And even if the results against Brighton (2-1) and during the week in Bern (3-1) were right, the performances were mixed in places. The same is true for MUFC.

However, Ten Haag’s charges have won each of their last three competitive matches and have also celebrated emotional victories like the one against Copenhagen.

Will that give them a boost to beat an opponent who has won four of their last seven appearances at Old Trafford? My Manchester United Manchester City tip has its doubts.

The prediction of the bookmakers?

Before kickoff, the bookmakers have a clear favorite in their Manchester United Manchester City betting. And this wears sky blue.

The three-way bets may speak a clear language. But the home side should not be completely without a chance in the neighborhood duel.

Top bookmakers like Bwin are offering odds of around 1.70 in the “both teams will score” predictions alone.

Analysis: Manchester United vs Man City

This is partly due to the fact that the visitors have not been particularly solid of late. Across competitions, they have not been able to keep the zero for six games.

One reason for this was the suspension of midfield metronome Rodri. The latter is now back, but even he could not provide peace against YB Bern in the Champions League during the week.

On the other hand, the Red Devils have at least managed to play to nil twice in the same period.

In the recent 1-0 win over Copenhagen in the top flight, André Onana and Harry Maguire, who have been heavily criticized recently, shone. The latter was the scorer, while the keeper saved a penalty in the closing minutes!

Quote analysis

However, the Skyblues will be difficult to control around Erling Haaland. Regardless of the Norwegian, Julian Alvarez could also be a can opener.

The Argentine scored the first goal of the game with three of his four goals this season. Whether that will be the case again? Betano bookmakers predict odds of 7.30 in the Manchester United Manchester City tip.

On the other hand, Bruno Fernandes should once again become the string puller in the offense. In the past two duels with the Cityzens he could score in each case.

If either Bruno Fernandes or Erling Haaland should score, for example, odds of around 2.00 will be offered by this bookmaker.

Manchester United can make big plays

Without question, in recent years the Premier League in general and Manchester City in particular have been painted sky blue.

The Red Devils have usually had to settle for the role of the second best team in town. In the big games, however, they were often there to prove themselves.

Only Liverpool FC (23) picked up more wins against reigning champions than Manchester United (16). They also won 2-1 against the Skyblues in the preseason.

They have to be careful especially in the opening minutes. In each of the past four PL home games, they have conceded a goal in the first period.

Manchester City and the Sunday curse

Will the Cityzens be able to take advantage of this circumstance? At the bookmakers of Tipwin, the odds for this in the Manchester United Manchester City tip is 1.50.

However, the guests have had problems several times recently. On the one hand, they lost the most recent two away games. Between March and July 2020, they last lost three times in a row away from home.

In addition, all five league defeats of the reigning champions in this calendar year came on foreign soil. They only lost more often away from home in 2015 (7).

Hopes that the negative streak will be averted are likely to be dimmed by the fact that they have lost two of their last three games on a Sunday. As many as in the previous 20 combined!

As for the head-to-head between Manchester City and Manchester United, it has been an almost one-sided affair in recent years.

Across competitions, the Skyblues have won five of the most recent seven duels. In each of the last five, they even scored the first goal of the game.

The Red Devils don’t have to hide at all, though. Only against Liverpool (8) have the Cityzens lost more often than against United (7) under Pep Guardiola.

They have also proven that they are a force to be reckoned with right to the end. Four of their five wins this season have come courtesy of goals in the final quarter of an hour.

My Man Utd Man City tip:

In this respect we can look forward to a thrilling city derby. Both teams are capable of winning the match.

Certainly, the better chances for this lie with the guests. However, it is questionable how they will deal with the one day less regeneration that they have at their disposal compared to the Red Devils.

In any case, it will show on the field that they still have defensive problems. Offensively, there is always something going on with them anyway.

Therefore, my Manchester United Manchester City tip is: Both teams score!
