Manchester City will make their debut on this League Cup this Wednesday.
On a 3rd round match, they will face West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns, in West Bromwich.
This is a decisive match. If it ends in a draw, there will be extra-time and even penalties, if needed, to determine who will advance on this competition.
West Bromwich’s Analysis:
Because they don’t have such a good position on the English clubs’ ranking as Manchester City, West Bromwich started to play on this competition a bit earlier.
On the 2nd round, they faced Accrington, away from home, and they won 1-3.
On the Premier League, the team sits in 12th place with 8 points. On the 3 matches they played at home, they have won once and tied twice.
On their last 5 matches at home against Man City, they have lost every single one.
The manager should field his best line-up in order to try and surprise Manchester City and break the negative streak.
Manchester City’s Analysis:
Motivated by 3 routs in a row (5-0 against Liverpool, 6-0 against Watford and 4-0 against Feyenoord), Manchester City will probably use this competition as a testing platform for manager Pep Guardiola, since this is the least important competition they are participating on.
Manchester City vs West Bromwich – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With that said, they should start several reserves’ players tonight, which reduces their favouritism slightly, although they are still heavy favourites nevertheless.
The chosen players will certainly try their hardest to advance to the next stage and captivate the manager’s attention.
With a much more qualified roster than their opponents’ tonight and on a spectacular moment of form, City should play looking to advance on this competition, since that has always been Guardiola’s mentality in every club he managed.
