Man City v Man Utd Odds : Manchester Derby takes centre stage for punters

Published

on

Its a ‘Super Sunday’ as Man City host Man United in the Manchester derby, as bet365 release the latest odds and a new in play free bets offer on this monumental clash at the Etihad.

Its an encounter that could have a big say on the title race, as once more the Premiership looks to be a two horse race between the Red and Blue halves of Manchester – which makes for an exhilerating day of action for football fans and punters alike.

Despite remaining unbeaten throughout the top flight campaign so far, City sit three points behind their opponents at the top of the table.

Man City v Man Utd  : Bet365 Free Bet Offer

The football continues this Sunday as Bet365 celebrate with a new in play free bets offer – Place a pre-match bet on the game and they’ll give you a free In-Play bet to the same stake on the big match worth £50/€50! There’s also £200 free for new customers! Claim here!

The atmosphere inside the Etihad Stadium is sure to be electric and after the Citizens did the double over United last season and clinched the title, revenge is on the mind of the Red Devils, as both managers will eye this game as pivotal as to which side of Manchester the title will head.

Roberto Mancini’s men will know just how important this game is. If they win, they will go top of the table on goal difference, where as a defeat would leave them a significant six points behind their rivals.

The 5/4  on the home win is definitely a dangling carrot for punters, as with Aguero and Tevez providing the attacking impetus, there should be plenty of action in United’s penalty area, and set pieces could be the key – considering the Red Devils have literally been all over the place at the back.

The 40/1 for Vincent Kompany to find the first goal in the game looks definitely worth a bet, considering how brittle United look at the back defending corners.

This is certainly an encounter to build momentum and confidence before the busy Christmas period and after having so much success against United last term, City may feel as though they have the edge going into this one.

Sir Alex Ferguson is sure to be hungrier than ever to clinch the Premier League crown this season and will be sending his team out to claim all three points, as the 11/5 on offer is sure to attract plenty of attention.

Ferguson has concerns over his back four as they have leaked 21 goals in the top flight so far, but knows that the likes of Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez are likely to be on hand to get them out of trouble if needs be.

What he will be desperate for though is a solid defensive performance as the home side have the men that can really cause a lot of trouble.

It all makes for a scintillating 90 minutes of action between these two teams that look to be the strongest England has to offer right now.

Ferguson and Mancini are sure to be playing mind games with each other already, but the real action gets underway from 1.30PM.
