Manchester United v Manchester City Betting Tips: Can Utd take bragging rights?

| 06.03.2020

The Manchester derby rolls round again – there’s already been three this campaign but will the fourth instalment be just as enthralling?

Manchester City’s attentions may be on the Champions League right now, but three losses to their most bitter rivals in one season would surely be deemed unacceptable.

Pep Guardiola professed his love for the derby in midweek, while for Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a win could extinguish any lingering doubts of his position.

Match Odds

Man United are 4/1 to score back-to-back victories over City in all competitions.

And judging by their previous meetings it should be goal-fest. The Red Devils to win with Both Team to Score is 7/1.

City have got the measure of their rivals away from home and are 8/13 to make it four wins on the bounce at Old Trafford.

A Cityzens win with Over 2.5 Goals is 13/10. A draw is 3/1.

Talking Tactics

United captain Harry Maguire is expected to recover after an ankle injury kept him out of the FA Cup win over Derby County.

But Solskjaer will be sweating on the fitness of Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka with Mason Greenwood and Axel Tuanzebe on standby.

With Paul Pogba still out, Bruno Fernandes will be tasked with unlocking the City backline with in-form Anthony Martial upfront.

City’s star man Kevin de Bruyne is touch and go to feature with a back problem.

Sergio Aguero Man City
Aguero to be the derby day hero again?

Guardiola has said teen sensation Phil Foden is ‘ready for the derby’ but will that mean he starts?

It’s hard to second guess the City gaffer, and it’ll be a toss up between Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero up top. He could always play the pair of them…

Goalscorer odds

Martial scored the winner in December’s reverse fixture and he’s 6/1 to score last here. Odion Ighalo will be buzzing after his brace against Derby and is 9/4 to bag anytime.

Fernandes has been pivotal since he arrived at Old Trafford and sits at 14/5 anytime. Maguire to score in a home win is 28/1.

Raheem Sterling has gone 16 games without scoring against United for both Liverpool and City. The England forward is 17/10 to break his barren spell this weekend.

Aguero only needs half a yard to shoot and is 5/6 anytime. Riyad Mahrez is always hard to pin down too and is 21/10 to net anytime.
