Manchester City vs Arsenal Soccer Betting Prediction
Two-time defending British champion, Manchester City now ranks 2nd in the Premier League, 25 points behind the leaderboard and 12 points ahead of 5th place. After bringing back a very precious success from their trip to the lair of Real Madrid (1-2), the Citizens did well by dominating Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup final (2-1) before validating their ticket for the quarters of FA Cup finals following a success on the lawn of Sheffield Wednesday (0-1). Last weekend, Pep Guardiola’s men were beaten in the neighbor’s lair in the league (2-0). Less concerned by this end of the championship, they must now secure their place in the Big 4 while thinking about their course in C1.
9th in the Premier League with 5 units behind 5th place, synonymous with qualification for the next Europa League, Arsenal is one of the main disappointments of this season in England. Despite a lack of going in the game, the Gunners have not lost any of their last 8 league games (4 wins and 4 draws). After being beaten by Olympiakos in the 16th final of C3 (0-1 away win and 1-2 loss after extra time at home), they won at Portsmouth in the FA Cup (0-2) and against West Ham in the league last weekend (1-0).
