CARABAO CUP WEDNESDAY: We look ahead to Wednesday’s CARABAO CUP game between MANCHESTER CITY v BURTON with extended stats and Betdaq’s own recommended bet.
MANCHESTER CITY V BURTON
8:00pm Man City will be looking to build on their victory over Liverpool last week and look for a place in the Carabao Cup Final. City have won five of their last six games at home. When it comes to this competition the Citizens have a consistent winning streak against teams in a lower division. Burton Albion and managing to maintain mid-table in League One and it’s a great achievement to have made it so far in this competition. However, playing a top-flight team like Man City in their home grounds isn’t even easy for the leaders in the Premier League, as seen last week with Liverpool. Unfortunately, this is where the run ends for Burton, which is why our recommended bet is to back No on Both Teams To Score at 1.3.
