Manchester City vs Bristol – Carabao Cup: First leg of the Carabao Cup’s semi-finals takes place this Tuesday night at the Etihad, with Man City hosting Bristol.
Manchester City is isolated in the lead of the Premier League with 62 points conquered, having 20 wins and 20 draws so far.
Up until this point, on the 22 rounds played so far, the Citizens have scored 64 goals (best attack in the league) and have conceded 13 goals (best defence), which results on an average of 3.5 goals per match (the highest of the competition).
Their performances at the Etihad have been brilliant, with the team getting 31 out of 33 possible points. To reach this stage, Guardiola’s team has eliminated West Brom, Wolves and Leicester.
Bristol occupies the 4th place in the Championship with 47 points conquered, having a record of 13 wins, 8 draws and 5 losses.
When it comes to goals, the Robins have 40 goals scored (3rd best attack of the league) and 31 conceded (worst defence of the top 9), which results on an average of 2.7 goals per match.
Their away record is similar to their home record, since they have obtained practically the same amount of points in both conditions.
To reach this stage of the competition, Bristol has eliminated Plymouth, Watford, Stoke, Crystal Palace and Man United, and they’ve scored at least 2 goals in all of those matches.
Manchester City vs Bristol – Betting Tip and Prediction:
For this match, I see a lot of value on the goals market, considering City’s offensive firepower, especially at the Etihad, where they record an average of almost 4 goals scored per match,
but also due to the poor defensive moment of form of the visitors, with 10 goals conceded on their last 3 matches. The Citizens have conceded goals in 5 of their last 6 home matches,
which means that Bristol can also score in this match.
