Arsenal vs Manchester City Soccer Betting Prediction

This season follows on from those carried out by Arsenal for several years. Absent from the top 4 for the 4th consecutive season, the Gunners are not even sure of being able to play in the Europa League next season due to a very tortuous course in the Premier League where they occupy only 9th place in the ranking and what , despite the victory obtained Wednesday night against the champion, Liverpool (2-1). Too irregular, the Londoners had beaten Southampton (0-2), Norwich (4-0) and Wolverhampton (0-2) before drawing against Leicester (1-1) then losing against Tottenham in North London derby (2-1). Also, this cup semi-final appears as one of the rare good news in this gloomy season for the Gunners.
Opposite, Manchester City had to give up their title to Liverpool this season after having monopolized 1st place for two years. This year, the Sky-Blues could not keep pace with the men of Jurgen Klopp and will have to settle for the place of the dolphin. Often ruthless, the Citizen remain on 2 big wins against Newcastle (5-0) and Brighton (0-5) and another more narrow obtained against Bournemouth Wednesday evening (2-1). To reach this semi-final, the players of Pep Guardiola dismissed Newcastle in the quarter-finals (2-0).
