This Saturday, Manchester United and Manchester City will face off in the FA Cup final for the first time. After winning the Carabao Cup, United will look to add another domestic title to their collection. Meanwhile, City will try to add to their Premier League title and their Champions League trophy when they take on Inter Milan on June 10.
Pep Guardiola’s team is one win away from becoming only the second English club to successfully defend the Premier League title. It has been a long time since Manchester United won a major trophy. Erik ten Hag’s team has been improving under him this season.
The highly-anticipated match between Manchester United and Manchester City is happening at a time when the stakes are high. ESPN’s Mark Ogden and Rob Dawson talk about the match and their predictions.
Manchester City vs Manchester United Head to head :
- In the previous derby, Manchester United came from behind to beat Manchester City 2-1. This occurred in January this year. The match was held at Old Trafford.
- Prior to that, City had scored ten goals in consecutive victories over United at the Etihad.
- Over 2.5 goals has been seen in each of the past three meetings between these two teams.
Manchester City vs Manchester United Prediction :
Based on what we’ve seen this season, Manchester City is the best team in Europe, but we don’t think that backing them to beat their rival Manchester United would be worth it. Instead, we’ll take the Red Devils.
Under the leadership of Erik ten Hag, Manchester United have been incredibly difficult to break down. They’ve also been keeping clean sheets in every Premier League match this season. We’re not surprised that they’ll be keeping a low-scoring game against their rival. The under 2.5 goals market is currently favored by the punters.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ortega; Walker, Dias, Ake; Stones, Rodri; Bernardo, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Grealish; Haaland
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Lindelof, Shaw; Casemiro, Eriksen; Sancho, Fernandes, Garnacho; Rashford
