Betting Tips for the game

Neil Warnock suffered yet another defeat at Stamford Bridge as his Cardiff team fell to a 4-1 loss against the blues – despite taking the lead.

Manchester City were able to beat Fulham quite comfortably with a 3-0 score during the weekend, but they followed that up with a 2-1 loss against Lyon in the Champions League group game.

The recent game between Manchester City and Cardiff was in the FA Cup last season when City produced a 2-0 win at the Cardiff City stadium. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Manchester City.

Match odds

Cardiff are at a huge price of 15.00 to win the game and it should not be a surprise even if their last league win over this opponent was in 2013. Manchester City may have suffered a midweek defeat but it is difficult not to see Guardiola’s team coming back in a strong manner. City have been able to destroy most opponents with their quality across the pitch and the desire to bounce back from the midweek defeat will be a major motivation for the visitors. Our preview would choose a win for Manchester City.

Cardiff City vs Manchester City draw odds: 7.00

Cardiff City win odds: 15.00

Correct Score odds

City are the joint top scorers in the division along with Chelsea after having managed 14 goals from the first five matches. Cardiff may have failed to score in the first three league matches but they have bounced back with goals in their last three games. City have struggled at the back with just one clean sheet in five and even Fulham may have grabbed a goal during the weekend. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Manchester City 3-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Three out of the last four league matches for Manchester City has produced over 2.5 goals and the draw with Wolves is the sole exception to this run. Even then, there could have been a significant number of goals with City being one of the strongest teams going forward. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Raheem Sterling has been in fine form over the last few weeks and he has been able to score against Cardiff City in the past – including a goal in the FA Cup last season. Even though Aguero has been one of the best forwards in Premier League history, he has not scored in four out of the five league matches this season. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Sterling.
