Value In Backing The Manchester Derby To Be A Draw
Man Utd & Man City To Draw
Sky Sports football pundit Matt Le Tissier has a betting tip for Manchester United v Manchester City in the Premier League, 19:45 kick-off live on Sky Sports 1.
The red half of Manchester was buoyed by a fantastic comeback in the Champions League last week thanks to a hat-trick from Robin Van Persie and they have since proved they can win games without the Dutchman who will miss tonight’s match through injury. Wayne Rooney netted a brace against West Ham at the weekend and the Red Devils appear to have shaken off the disappointment of their 0-3 loss to Liverpool.
Manchester City showed great character to win with ten men against Hull after being knocked out of the Champions League when other sides would be still licking their wounds. The Citizens then made full use of their numerical advantage to thrash Fulham 5-0 on Saturday with midfielder Yaya Toure running the show and bagging a hat-trick.
Matt Le Tissier Tips: “Manchester United were not at the races against Liverpool, but have looked a lot more organised and decisive in their last two matches. I think they’ll give City a much tougher game than when the sides met in September and odds of 5/2 on the draw with Betfred look good value to me.
There are usually a few goals scored when these side meet and a 2-2 Correct Score with Betvictor looks worthy of a small punt at a stand out price of 13/1.”
Man Utd have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 5 home matches against Man City in all competitions, while City have scored at least 2 goals in 6 of their last 7 matches against United.
Nemanja Vidic is suspended meaning Michael Carrick may have to deputise at centre-back for Man Utd if Jonny Evans, Rio Ferdinand or Chris Smalling are unfit.
For City, Matija Nastasic and Sergio Aguero remain absent through injury, but Vincent Kompany is free to play after serving a one match ban.
