Cardiff City vs Manchester City – Betting Tips & Predictions – 23/09

Last updated & checked: 10/08/2021


These two sides met last back in 2013-14 season, where both sides won in their respective home grounds. MCFC won 4-2 and CCFC won 3-2, so expect plenty of goals here, maybe even an ‘Over 4.5 goals’ for the risk-takers amongst you. Man city, as good as they are, have only lost points to newly promoted side Wolves, so can fellow promotion side CCFC upset the odds this weekend? They are stacked heavily against them. This encounter should be a great one to watch, so be sure to tune in.

Cardiff City vs Manchester City Prediction: Cardiff City 1-4 Manchester City

With the Bluebirds demonstrating good glimpses early on during both of their matches against Chelsea and Arsenal, we feel that we will see a similar outcome here this Sunday. We feel that Cardiff will remain in the game for the first 20 minutes, and may even get a goal themselves, but Manchester City’s quality is likely to show as the game goes on. Expect Guardiola’s side to thrive, especially in the final 10 minutes, so a 1-4 victory for Manchester City is predicted.

Our recommended tip: Both Teams To Score

There were 11 goals scored during the two times the sides met back in 13-14, sharing them 5 and 6 respectively (check on other). Having scored goals against both Arsenal and Chelsea, the Bluebirds could well put at least one past Man City, as Lyon did in the Champions League earlier this week. MCFC bound to score, so half way there already, and Cardiff with their knack for scoring against top 6 teams could well do so this weekend.

Previous matches

Manchester City, as expected, won their previous encounter back during CCFC one-season stint in the Premier League during 2013-14 season, where they defeated the Bluebirds by 4-2 with Edin Dzeko, Navas, Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero all scoring for the home side. At the Cardiff City Stadium, it was the South Walians who took the three points, beating Man City 3-2 via goals from Aron Gunnarsson and Frazier Campbell (x2).

Players to watch: Danny Ward & David Silva

Danny Ward scored his first goal a few weeks back for the Bluebirds and has demonstrated stacks of potential during this early stage of his career. If Cardiff can provide enough possession to give him a platform, expect this forward to make the most of his skills and natural goal-scoring ability. David Silva – the beating heart of the Man City team. He has been running the show since the injury of Kevin de Bruyne, scoring his first goal in quite some time last week to mark his 50th for the club, so he will be full of confidence now. Every one of Guardiola’s men could be considered one to watch, so the Welsh side must be at their very best (if not more) come Saturday afternoon.
