Manchester City vs Leeds – Prediction, and Match Preview
Manchester City vs Leeds – In Gameweek No. 35, Manchester City will continue their championship defense efforts when they visit relegation-threatened Leeds at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
The Citizens appeared to have found their finest form for the final stretch as they overtook Arsenal at the top of the Premier League rankings by taking advantage of Arsenal’s unanticipated slip-ups.
Pep Guardiola’s team has also put on a few incredible performances in their quarterfinal matches against German powerhouse Bayern Munich, so it appears that they are also fired up for Champions League victory.
The Citizens were able to complete the task thanks to a brace of goals in the first half from Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez, despite underwhelming last weekend at Craven Cottage.
For Guardiola’s team, it was their eighth straight victory in the league. On Saturday afternoon, they should have little trouble beating Leeds, who haven’t been felling any trees lately.
Six days ago, the Peacocks were humiliated once more at Vitality Stadium as Bournemouth defeated them 4-1. The team’s board decided to fire Javi Gracia after they had only earned one point in their previous five league games.
On Wednesday morning, Sam Allardyce was formally named the new manager of Leeds. Big Sam will make the most difficult of all the bench debuts, but if anyone can boost the team’s morale and save them from relegation, it’s him.
Manchester City vs Leeds – Betting Analysis
The last three head-to-head contests between Manchester City and the Peacocks were all won by a score differential of two or more goals, with as many as 14 goals being scored.
In their previous home game against Leeds in December 2021, the Citizens won 7-0. In six of the previous seven head-to-head games between the two rivals, three goals or more were scored.
In three of the last five league games, Leeds have given up four or more goals. In their last three head-to-head games with the Citizens, they gave up 14 goals. Sam Allardyce’s hiring won’t really help them much on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium.
What are the best odds for the game?
Looking at the betting prices for the match on the WDW market, victory for Manchester City is available for 9/50, betting on a drawn result is 8/1 and staking on the winner to be Leeds United will get you 17/1. These are the best of the bets that can be secured as of now.
