Bet of the Day: Man City can win to nil over Leicester in thrilling title racePublished on: May 6, 2019Author: Jamie Clark
Whatever happens at the Etihad this Bank Holiday Monday, the Premier League title goes to the wire. Manchester City entertain Leicester City (Sky Sports, kick-off: 20:00 BST) seeking to put themselves in the driving seat.
Pep Guardiola’s team are looking to become the first club for a decade to retain the title and remain favourites to do so. This is their game in hand on Liverpool, who edged Newcastle United on Saturday night.
While the visiting Foxes could still in theory finish seventh and secure European football at the King Power Stadium next term, they need an improbable win here and victory on the final day with both Everton and Wolves to lose.
Although Leicester have held and beaten Man City in 90 minutes in a couple of encounters across all competitions, those matches were in the East Midlands.
Their away form leaves a lot to be desired. The Foxes have failed to win five of their last seven outings on the road – only beating rock bottom Huddersfield Town and Burnley, who look set to finish in the bottom six.
The Etihad is a real fortress for City and, in the 13 matches played there across all competitions in 2019 so far, they’ve conceded just six goals.
Strong home record
Punters can enhance the long odds-on favourites to 13/10 with Unibet if backing Man City to win to nil over Leicester.
As Guardiola’s team come into this contest off the back of three consecutive clean sheets, that really does look a smart bet.
Leicester go to a City side that haven’t dropped home points since before Christmas and possess a roster packed full of incredible talent.
Brendan Rodgers helped to bring Raheem Sterling through the ranks when the pair were at Liverpool, but now the Foxes boss has to try and find a way of stopping the England forward who has eight goals in his last seven home games.
With the title within their grasp, Man City will surely take no prisoners in their pursuit of a domestic treble.
Bet of the Day: 13/10 with Unibet, Man City to win to nil against Leicester.
