As part of one of the matches of the English League Cup, West Ham and Manchester City will come face to face. Which side will win this match? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this game.
West Ham's players started in the League Cup with a victory over Manchester United. A month ago, the Hammers won at Old Trafford thanks to a goal by Lanisni. After that, Moyes' team gave out a powerful segment, within which they managed to win 5 victories in six meetings. The exception was a misfire in the meeting with Brentford, in which the Londoners lost with a score of 1:2. Last week, West Ham won the Europa League against Belgian Genk (3-0), after which they dealt with Tottenham 1-0.
Manchester City did not have such a difficult opponent in the previous round, and therefore the townspeople were able to easily beat Wycombe with a score of 6 on their field:1. Last Saturday, City was able to defeat Brighton away with a score of 4:1. Interestingly, Josep Guardiola's wards had already scored the first three goals by the 30th minute of the meeting, and the match itself turned out to be not as difficult for the blue moon as sports analysts expected. Also last week, Manchester City celebrated a victory in the Champions League over Brugge, where they defeated the opponent with a score of 5:1.
Statistics and figures:
- Manchester City - the favorite of the meeting;
- West Ham have 4 wins in 5 meetings;
- Manchester City has a streak of 3 wins in a row;
- West Ham have won 3 matches in a row;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 2:1 in favor of City.
City's victory in this match will be too banal a bet. I propose to play a combined forecast, and hope for goals from both sides, with the passage of the base total of 2.5 goals. I am sure this forecast will pass.
