Manchester City to beat Burton and over 3.5 goals 5/6 for Wednesday’s EFL Cup semi-final
Competition: EFL Cup
Market: Manchester City win and over 3.5 goals
Odds: 5/6 @ Bet 365
Picking up a 9-0 win over Burton in the first-leg of their EFL Cup semi-final, Manchester City will travel to the Pirelli Stadium on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, after shipping nine against Manchester City at the Etihad a fortnight ago, it is hard to see anything other than another incredibly tough night for Burton on Wednesday. In their 28 games in League One, they have recorded 10 wins, six draws and 12 defeats, scoring 28 and conceding 38 in return. Now failing to win any of their last two league appearances, the Brews have also dropped out of the first half of the table. Now recorded just one victory in their last six matches across all competitions, the hosts have also recorded just one home win in their last 10 attempts.
As for the visitors, while Manchester City might be chasing a deficit at the top of the Premier League table, the Sky Blues are enjoying a very bright run of form. In their 23 top-flight matches, they have won 18, drawn twice and lost just three times. Now scoring 62 goals and conceding 17 in return, no team in Europe has scored more goals than City this season. Along with now winning their last six matches on the bounce and scoring a remarkable 27 goals on that unbeaten run, Wednesday’s visitors have also now recorded four consecutive clean sheets.
