Manchester City vs Wolves
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 2 March 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Etihad Stadium.
The Citizens are continuing their seemingly unstoppable run towards the league title. They are on a long winning streak, and by the looks of things, they might even deliver the European crown.
As of now, they are at the top of the table, with a lead of 12 points over the second-placed Red Devils.
They have been scoring in high frequency all through this campaign, and only one team has outscored them in the English top flight. Do also note that they have conceded the least number of goals till now in the Premier League.
In fact, they have let in a total of just 16 goals till now, whereas no other squad has kept it below 25 so far.
Meanwhile, the Wanderers are still on with their inconsistent run. They might have slightly improved their form lately, but against the toppers, they really are punching above their weight.
Moreover, Pep Guardiola’s men have a superb h2h record against them as well.
As such, expect Manchester City to post another three points on the board this Tuesday.
Manchester City vs Wolves: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 1-3 win for the Citizens.
- They had recorded ten of the preceding fourteen overall wins.
- They had scored two or more goals in seven of the former eleven clashes.
- The guests have won just once at this venue since 1999.
Manchester City vs Wolves Prediction
Guardiola’s men recorded a 2-1 win at home the last match-day, against West Ham. In the meantime, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men were held to a 1-1 draw the past game week on the road, by Newcastle.
Going on, Pep’s men are on a 20-game winning streak, and had scored two or more goals in 11 of their preceding 13 games.
They are also at home, and the last they lost here was back in September of 2020. Note that they had also conceded a total of two goals from their former twelve appearances at this stadium.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 11 of their last 16 overall fixtures, and they remained so in seven of their past nine road trips.
On top of that, the Citizens also have a superb h2h record against this rival over the years, and especially so at this venue.
Likely, expect Manchester City to deliver a winning performance this Tuesday, and to score in plenty in the process as well.
