Wigan vs Manchester City – FA Cup: Fighting on all fronts, Manchester City now turns itself to the FA Cup and visits Wigan this Monday.
The season of Guardiola’s team is still continuing to be perfect. On this past week, the team has battered Basel and has consolidated their path to the Champions’ League quarter-finals.
On the Premier League, the situation is even more comfortable. The team is leading the competition with 72 points conquered, with an enormous 16-points advantage over their city rivals Manchester United.
An advantage that is very unlikely to be recovered. But the first final to be played by Guardiola’s team will be on the Carabao Cup next weekend against Arsenal.
On this edition of the FA Cup, City has already eliminated Burnley and, on the last round, Cardiff.

City’s opponent is playing some divisions below the Premier League. But they have already lived better periods. The team has already won the FA Cup in 2012/2013, inclusively beating Manchester City in the final.
But on that same season, the team was relegated from the Premier League. On the last season, the team ended up being relegated from the Championship and they currently compete in League One.
On this season however, the team has already eliminated some opponents from the Premier League on this FA Cup such as Bournemouth and West Ham.
In League One, the team is coming off 2 losses, but they are still fighting for promotion and even the title, having 63 points while the leaders Shrewsbury Town have 64.
Wigan vs Manchester City – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Wigan’s historical record on the FA Cup is positive. But this time they will face a different type of opponent.
Manchester City is the best team of the season in European football and they have been showcasing excellent football.
I don’t thing that the current Wigan will be able to withstand. The challenge is always finding value in some line.
However, I believe that the Manchester City’s team goals can be a good option, backing the Over 2.5 Goals or the selection for them to score in both halves.
