On April 01, Manchester City will face Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium as part of the match of the 29th round of the English Championship. In our forecast, we will take a detailed look at the upcoming sporting event.
The "citizens" are less stable this season, but still have not lost hope to compete for another championship in the Premier League. The team practically does not lose points in the last rounds and currently ranks second with 61 points, which is eight points less than Arsenal. At the same time, Guardiola's wards played one game less, and the last two matches of Manchester City ended with defeats of Burnley in the FA Cup (6-0) and RB Leipzig in the Champions League (7-0).
The Reds are not impressive this football year, and the club's stars look very pale. Liverpool have only one Premier League left, and sixth place in the table clearly does not reflect the hopes of the fans. The team has 42 points, which is five points less than Newcastle, which is fifth. Nevertheless, for the Reds, the games with Manchester City are always fundamental, so this time we should expect a real battle. In the last round, Liverpool lost minimally to Bournemouth (0:1), and in the second leg of the Champions League with the same score lost to Real Madrid (0:1).
Figures and statistics:
- Six of the last seven matches between the clubs ended with a total of more than 2.5 goals
- Liverpool have lost six of their last ten away games in all competitions
- Manchester City does not leave the field without scoring a goal in more than 25 consecutive matches in all competitions.
ForecastManchester City rarely wins against Liverpool lately, but this time they are big favorites.
There is a high probability that the Reds will not prevent Guardiola's wards from scoring three points and scoring a lot of goals.
