Manchester City v Manchester United Premier League Betting Tips 06/03/2022

Manchester City v Manchester United

One of the biggest Premier League fixtures of the season takes place this weekend as Manchester City welcome Manchester United to the Etihad, so it’s time for our Manchester City v Manchester United Premier League Betting Tips 06/03/2022. Despite dropping points recently, City remain top of the league with some breathing space. But United are facing the real prospect of missing out on Champions League qualification after another draw last weekend. Points are required for different reasons by the blue and red of Manchester. This derby match kicks off at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, 6th March, and it will be shown on Sky Sports. 

Team News/Form

Man City have won their last two, beating Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park in the Premier League before a comfortable 2-0 win at Peterborough in the FA Cup. After three wins in their last four, City has a six-point lead at the top of the Premier League. Man United struggled to build on consecutive wins in mid-February, and they have drawn their last two. A 1-1 tie against Atletico Madrid came before a goalless home draw against relegation-threatened Watford. 

Looking at the team news, City pair Ruben Dias and Zack Steffen may be fit to feature after recent injuries. For United, Scott McTominay is likely to return from a recent knock, but Edinson Cavani (groin) is unlikely to feature this weekend.

Matchwinner Betting Odds

There is little in the matchwinner odds for the Man City vs Man United clash this Sunday. United are a different prospect to the side City cruised past with a 2-0 win at Old Trafford earlier this season. However, a United win is unlikely, as the Red Devils have won just two of their last six on the road. At 41/5, SBK has the best odds for an away victory. City are the favourites to take all three points at the Etihad, as they have won 15 of their last 17 Premier League games. As a result, 10Bet are providing 2/5 odds for a home win. Our tip this weekend is to back a draw. With City in good form and, with United dropping points, this may seem unlikely. But, United rarely lose, and they have drawn four of their last six in all competitions. The Red Devils have also won their last three at the Etihad, so a draw at 41/10, provided by SBK, seems good value. 

Total Goals Betting

In recent years, this fixture has not earned a reputation for being a high-scorer. The Manchester derby has often been cagey, as neither side wants to give anything away against their rivals. As a result, the last six matches between City and United have produced under 2.5 goals. In addition, City has seen under 2.5 in their last two, while United has been involved in under 2.5 scorelines in seven of their last eight. BetVictor has the best odds for under 2.5 this weekend. The bookmaker will return 11/8 odds for another low scorer. 

Anytime Goalscorer Bet Tips

Although few goals are expected, there are still some good choices in the anytime scorer market. Firstly, looking at Man United, one breakthrough starlet is the pick of the bunch. Rangnick has entrusted Anthony Elanga in recent weeks to provide an attacking outlet for the side. The 19-year-old has been in decent form too recently, scoring two in his last three, both from the bench. At 13/2, provided by Bet365, another Elanga goal could be a good outside option in the City vs United match. But, our pick this week is from City’s ranks. Riyad Mahrez has established himself as the Citizen’s talisman this season with 19 goals in all competitions. The Algerian is in top form, scoring four in his last three at the Etihad. Unibet has the best odds for a Mahrez goal this weekend at 5/4. 

City will have to exorcise the ghosts of their loss against Spurs to ramp up their push for another Premier League title. But United are likely to respond following another poor result last time out. Both sides need points for different reasons, and this could be a hard-fought Manchester derby.
