Pick of the day: Manchester City – Arsenal

You are expected from us to see a ‘Match of the Week’, but since the corona-sports-summer calendar is so packed we are increasing our pace as well! So instead of weekly updates, we are handing out daily betting predictions! Even though we can’t be there to shout, we are still the crowd. And by placing a small bet, you can simulate the euphoria of the stadium.

Today we have a special match: Manchester City versus Arsenal. Guardiola has an excellent record against the Gunners, but the Citizens have hardly anything to win or to lose. Will the blue side of Manchester come out of the corona crisis motivated enough to finish the season in style? Losing to Arsenal means that Liverpool is virtually taking over the champion title. Perhaps, there is still hope with the squad for a miracle?

going over the figures

Manchester City is currently 25 points behind on Liverpool and had a bad streak prior to the shutdown against Tottenham and their rivals, Manchester United. Despite a possible form dip, the track record against Arsenal is one that makes the Gunners shiver: a six win streak for Manchester City with netting seventeen goals, while conceding not more than two. It is worth noting that five out of six of these games had over 2.5 goals.

Manchester City Arsenal Betting Predictions

Things have changed though. Mikel Arteta took over as head coach in December and has putten in some impressive results. The former assistant coach of Pep is now facing his former employee and mentor for the first time. There is a lot at stake for Arsenal as they want an end sprint towards Champions League football and they need every point. Winning wednesday would make Mikel an instant cult figure. It is not only the tactic genius that is Guardiola that Arsenal has to beat though, Sergio Aguero has a record of netting seven goals in eight matches against Arsenal and won’t be planning to leave it at that.
