History awaits for Guardiola’s icons

Wrapping up a fifth domestic crown from their past six seasons, Manchester City now have the chance to officially cement their status as the greatest team in the Premier League era.

Winning each of their last 12 straight Premier League appearances – a run that stems all the way back to a 1-0 loss against Spurs on February 5th – Guardiola’s side have their sights firmly set on completing a history-making treble.

Breezing their way to a second Champions League final after claiming a 5-1 aggregate romp against Real Madrid last week, the former Barcelona boss knows that his squad are within touching distance of greatness.

With both an FA Cup and Champions League final fast approaching, City are looking to become the first English club since Manchester United in 1999 to complete a treble-winning campaign.

Priced at 3/4 with Coral’s new customer offer to make it 13 Premier League victories on the bounce when they travel to the Amex on Wednesday night, it is hard to find anyone who can stop City’s era of dominance while Guardiola is at at the helm.

 

A party atmosphere at the Amex

Although many around the Amex might have been disappointed after Graham Potter made the move to Stamford Bridge back in September, the Seagulls have only gone to another level since De Zerbi arrived on the south coast.

Making an immediate return to winning ways over the weekend as they claimed a 3-1 victory against an already-relegated Southampton, the one-time Sassuolo boss finds his squad riding their own wave of momentum.

Officially securing a maiden European adventure and knowing that they can still clinch a top-six finish, Brighton will be desperate to make another top-flight statement on Wednesday night.

Expecting a real party atmosphere on the south coast following their famous victory against Southampton a few days ago, the Seagulls have also largely impressed with their continued success on home soil.

Despite opening Wednesday’s heavyweight showdown at the Amex priced as high as 31/10 with BetVictor’s bet £5 get £30 offer to spring a real upset, De Zerbi’s men have lost just a single Premier League matchup in front of their own supporters since February 18th.

City’s staggering record against the Seagulls

While City might know that they will face another tough challenge on Wednesday night, Guardiola’s camp should be excited by what is a rampant record against the high-flying Seagulls.

Claiming an action-packed 3-1 victory when they welcomed Brighton to the Etihad for their reverse Premier League battle on October 22nd, the English record-breakers have remarkably won 11 of their last 12 meetings – a run that stems all the way back to 2008.

Likewise, storming their way to a 4-1 romp when they last travelled to the Amex 19 months ago, City also have a tendency to run rampant when they come up against the European qualifiers.

In fact, along with winning each of their last three meetings against Brighton by an aggregate score of 10-2, Guardiola’s side have also recorded at least a trio of strikes in seven of their last eight showdowns.

With that run highlighted by City’s empathetic 5-0 win on the south coast during the 2019/20 campaign, the newly-crowned champions open Wednesday’s matchup priced at 2/1 with Bet365’s £30 sign-up offer to once again bag over 2.5 goals.

 

Brighton vs Manchester City Betting Tip

Storming their way to more Premier League history last weekend, Manchester City will simply travel to the Amex looking to extend on their remarkable flurry.

Winning each of their last 12 straight top-flight appearances, Guardiola’s superstar squad also travel to the south coast holding a stellar record against Wednesday’s opponents.

However, although the Sky Blues might have won 11 of their previous 12 meetings against Brighton, they will meet a Seagulls side who wrote their own piece of history a few days ago.

Securing a maiden European ticket after claiming a 3-1 win against Southampton last weekend, some in De Zerbi’s camp could be smelling the chance to spring a major upset.

With three of the last four Premier League meetings between Brighton and Manchester City finishing with both teams finding the net, neutrals could be treated to another action-packed affair from the Amex.
