We’ve assembled some match preview and betting predictions for the big game this weekend. City v Arsenal at the Etihad, with City needing a win to strengthen their top 4 position.
This first preview comes from bet365. I was disappointed to hear that the Bet365 pundits don’t seem particularly optimistic about City’s chances in this. To be fair we were pretty rubbish in midweek – afraid according to Chris Waddle – and Arsenal are playing quite well. I would not always back the bookie’s own predictions, but bet365 are highly rated as an online bookie and I have seen several of their tips come off in the past.
It is true that both sides have had a disappointing season. You can see why Sky wanted this game as the super Sunday match, as it should have been a title decider. Instead the loser will be struggling to qualify for the Champions League. I still think we’ll win this, but the season will still go down as a failure.
