On Wednesday evening, however, one of the most significant duels of recent years is also increasing from a purely sporting point of view. Manchester City (which is on the second position in the Premier League with a comfortable 86 points so far) will not be able to give away points in any of its thrilling title races of all time, while Manchester United (sixth placed-team with active of 64 points) is battling for admission to next year's Champions League group stage.
In the league, it is the 160th derby of the city. The Red Devils have won 62 league encounters so far, while the Sky Blues have 46 successes and 51 draws. Also, there have been six derbies in the past that did not take place over the weekend. The Red Devils won the first of their kind 5:0 in November 1994, but have since been without a win (0-2-3). Also on Wednesday, the Citizens seem to have better cards to succeed in the run, as in Manchester United against Manchester City, the odds of all bookmakers suggest.
The Manchester derby is a fateful game for both teams. City would have to cut off the championship in a point loss. The Red Devils could again bury the Champions League hopes in the absence of victory. The home team lost six out of the previous nine competitive encounters, the Citizens gave points only once in their recent 15 Premier League clashes.
It is hard to predict how Manchester United reacts to the embarrassing defeat in Everton. However, it is clear that the Red Devils need a very good day to defeat Manchester City. At Manchester United versus Manchester City, our prediction is that a tip on "both teams to score: Yes" could well be crowned with success. 188bet offers betting odds of 1.78 in the game between the Red Devils and Sky Blues.
