Bristol City vs Manchester City predictions and betting tips for tonight’s League Cup second leg match at Aston Gate. Can Bristol City overturn a 2-1 first let deficit?
For tonight’s football tips I’ve got a betting preview of the Bristol City v Man City Carabo Cup semi-final and our betting tips include a first goalscorer and correct score prediction. Bristol City have been on a poor run either side of the first leg, so they will need a gigantic performance to beat the Champions elect tonight. See our Bristol City vs Manchester City predictions below with reasons for each of the football betting tips.
There are a couple of rays of hope for Bristol City in this match tonight, firstly they have the victory over Manchester United still fresh in their memory, and secondly, Manchester City haven’t been firing on all cylinders in this tournament so far. Having said all of this, it is hard to predict anything but a Manchester City win tonight at odds of 1/4. The draw is 11/2 and the odds for Bristol City to beat Manchester City are 12/1 tonight.
Sergio Aguero is the 11/4 favourite to score first and Raheem Sterling is 5/1. Bristol City’s main threat is Bobby Reid and he’s 16/1 to find the net first tonight or a tempting 22/5 to score anytime.
I’m predicting Manchester City to win this match, but it would be no surprise to see Bristol City get on the scoresheet. They managed to find the net at the Etihad Stadium and had a few more chances to score. They also had chances against Manchester United in the last round. Bristol City had scored in eight home matches in a row before being shut out by Norwich in their last home match. City have only kept one clean sheet in this competition, with West Brom, Leicester and tonight’s opponents all scoring against them. The first of my Bristol City vs Man City predictions for tonight is Man City to win and BTTS at odds of 9/5 with Betway.
As is always the way with a Man City match, I’m spoilt for choice in the first goalscorer odds. It is a Man City player we want to bet on and we need to predict the Manchester City starting line-up to do so. I think Aguero will start the match and Bernardo Silva will probably start again. Sterling hasn’t had a rest for a few weeks and neither has De Bruyne so one of these two might not play. I’m going to take a punt on a midfielder getting the first goal and bet on Ilkay Gundogan for the second of my Bristol City vs Manchester City predictions tonight, the odds are 11/1 at Betfair.
I’ve already predicted both teams to score and Manchester City to win so this has to be considered when predicting the correct score of the match today. Manchester City will want to get the first goal and effectively kill off the tie and that could see the heads of Bristol City players drop. The match might open up for Man City and they could get some late goals. My correct score prediction for Bristol City vs Manchester City tonight is a 3-1 Man City win. The best odds are 10/1 at William Hill.
