Manchester City Team News

Manchester City has made a good start to the season as expected, going without defeat in their seven games so far, with new centre-forward Erling Haaland leading the scoring charts with 11 goals. However, not everything has gone as well as the table would suggest. They lost the Community Shield to Liverpool, picked up unexpected draws at Newcastle and against Aston Villa, were 2-0 down at half-time at home to Crystal Palace, and in the Champions League Borussia, Dortmund led until the 80th minute at the Etihad Stadium.
By now you know how to shape a game against Manchester City in order not to lose, that’s what happened to Pep Guardiola at Barcelona and Bayern. But as with his previous stops, City can rely on the individual skills of its stars and certain weaknesses of the opponent in crucial situations.

Manchester United Team News

United did not look particularly good at the start of the season, but then caught on and became very stable, especially defensively – not least thanks to the signing of Casemiro, who now provides Brazilian stability in midfield together with Fred. Coach Ten Hag‘s system seems to be slowly catching on, and the results have been good again recently. United have won games against Liverpool, Southampton, Leicester and even league leaders Arsenal. The last game against Crystal Palace did not take place because of Queen’s death, otherwise, they might have been even higher up the table.
The victories against top teams Liverpool and Arsenal show United’s great potential, which at least for the moment does not have to hide from City. The absence of the already little-loved captain Harry Maguire will not weigh heavily in this game.


  • There have been no decisive trends in the last 40 derbies. 18 times City have won, 18 times United have won, in 6 of the last 7 games less than 3 goals were scored
  • ManU has won their last three away games, including the Europa League, without conceding a goal.
  • In these derbies, Manchester City usually has up to 7 more corners per game.
  • ManU always has a preponderance of cards (3.33:0.33) instead.
  • ManU have not scored in the last 15 minutes of matches
  • Referee Michael Oliver shows an average of 3.36 cards

Our betting prediction for Manchester City vs. Manchester United

At first glance, of course, it looks like City will have a similar run to last season despite two draws. And the opponent from the same city does not seem to be a hurdle at first glance either. But United have recently looked very stable, concentrated and defensively strong, especially on foreign grounds. If United follows Dortmund’s example and has a better physical condition until the last minute, then United can get something in this match. However, the Asian handicap of +1.5 also allows us a small defeat by one goal to win this bet.

Our Prediction: Manchester United +1.5 @1.95

Other tips:

  • Manchester City -4.5 corners @1.92 (Bet365)
  • Under 3.0 goals (Asian) @2.20 (Bet365)
  • Manchester United -1.5 cards @2.75 (Bet365)
  • Bernardo Silva has more than 1 shot @2.00 (Bet365)

By Max Stargard

Even as a child, I started typing the results of the Bundesliga with my friends at school. The stakes were modest back then: The lunch, a few marbles or maybe a milk slice. Then, at the age of 9, I played the penalty bet once - and immediately got 10 right. The previous week I had won 500 DM and in my childish imagination I was already imagining how many football pictures I could buy at the kiosk on the corner. Unfortunately, it was one of those match days when everything turned out as expected and I only won DM 8.10. Nevertheless, I followed the game with great interest. Nevertheless, the passion to correctly predict the outcome of sporting events haunted me for the rest of my life. I would have loved to own the sports almanac that Marty McFly bought in Back to the Future II. Much later, when I was already working as a journalist for newspapers and as a writer for television, I came across an international betting forum with over 100,000 members - and found out that a lot of people there were giving their tips on German football, but nobody seemed to have a real clue, so I wrote a few English-language preliminary reports with a few tips - and was right about everything. After that, an avalanche started. I got offers from bookmakers, sports papers and even betting syndicates to work for them - and I accepted a few of them too, experiencing the ups & downs of sports betting and travelling halfway around the world in the years that followed. There I met Chinese multimillionaires betting five to six figures, amateur players in Serbia or Turkey supporting their families with small stakes, South Africans gambling away half their fortune, Brazilians who could only leave their favelha and become rich by making the right tips. At one point my life was similar to Matthew McCaughaney's in the film Two For The Money - and far too much stress. I subsequently moved to another continent and ran an English-language football epaper about the Bundesliga from there. After the birth of my son, I devoted myself for many years only to artistic projects in the field of photography and literature. However, I am happy to share my knowledge and passion with the readers of bettingtipsafrica.
