Our expert made a prediction for the match of the League Cup semifinal between Manchester City and Manchester United will take place on January 29.
The first meeting in the League Cup ended with a very confident victory for the City (3: 1), and it took place at Old Trafford. The dominance of the “city” in the first half was so strong that Sir Alex left the match.
United now is not in the best shape. The plan that Sulscher suggested to Pep in the championship was successfully broken at Trafford. Well, it is unlikely that the Norwegian will be able to overplay Guardiola a second time tactically.
Laport returned, which is good news for the “City”. Therefore, now, “MU” will be much more difficult, because the leader of their attack is injured, and the opponent’s best defender in back. It is difficult to find at least one chance for Sulscher’s wards. All is not in favor of the team from the red half of Manchester.
Our prediction: Manchester city win with a handicap (-2)
