Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Arsenal?
Arsenal has led the Premier League since the start of the season but has been unlucky in direct clashes with Manchester City. In the last five games against Wednesday’s opponent, the Gunners have lost all of them.
Although it has won 16 games out of 21 played, Arsenal has not won for two matches: they drew 1-1 with Brentford in the last round and lost to Everton, away from home, by 1-0. The warning signal must already be on at the Emirates Stadium because the citizens still dream of the Premier League title.
City has better offensive statistics than Arsenal, such as chances created per game and average goals per game, but they lost many points to smaller opponents, which Arsenal did not. As they have not taken advantage of the games against Manchester City, Arsenal can be satisfied with a draw in that game and look for victory in the other rounds to guarantee the Premier League title.
Why Bet on Manchester City?
Manchester City has recently beaten Aston Villa in a quiet 3-1 where the defiant ambient in the stadium could be felt. In addition to the latest inconsistent form, City has been the subject of rumors in the press due to financial fair play, which could even banish the team from the Premier League.
Football-wise, City are going through a better time than Arsenal, having won 3 of their last 4 matches in the league. The Sky-Blues have the advantage of having won the last 5 matches played against Arsenal in recent years. However, the context of the game is completely different, as the team plays with the pressure to win to continue seeking the leadership of the Premier League.
Haaland is still the top scorer in the League and De Bruyne is the main assister, which shows the quality of City’s players and what they are capable of doing. Midfielder Rodri is also a highlight of the team, being the leader in passes and tackles made in the current season.
Final Betting Analysis: Arsenal vs. Manchester City
City is under pressure due to the recent rumors involving the team’s financial situation and, as a result, we don’t know how they will face this game. Guardiola’s players have become used to, in recent years, playing to maintain their points advantage, but rarely to catch up with an opponent who shoots ahead.
Arsenal is not having the best time of the season either, but they certainly won’t miss the chance to make this game an early final, win, and further increase the advantage over their great rival.
We believe in Arsenal’s win in this game.
If you put $100 into Arsenal’s win, you could get $196 back for a total payout of $296.
