Man City determined to avenge last Wembley failure
Competition: Capital One Cup
Market: Man City to lift the Capital One Cup
Odds: 1/7 @ Bet 365
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has recently rallied the troops ahead of their Capital One Cup final against Sunderland. The last time the Citizens went to Wembley, they lost 1-0 at the hands of Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup final. As a result, Manuel Pellegrini’s men are all the more determined to avenge their previous failings.
Bet 365 are backing the finalists at 1/7 to see past Sunderland in the Capital One Cup final, and considering the Black Cats were hammered 4-1 in their last game against Arsenal in the Premier League, Man City are even bigger favourites. Sunderland manager Gus Poyet even admitted ‘no-one has put themselves on the teamsheet for next week’ following the Arsenal defeat.
However, Sunderland boast an impressive recent record against the Sky Blues, winning three times to a 1-0 scoreline out of their last five meetings – drawing once. However, they have never beaten City away from home in the Premier League.
City will have a big boost in Sergio Aguero returning for the final, but it’s unknown whether he will start.
