Capital One Cup: Manchester City vs Hull City

Manchester City vs Hull City Betting Tip and Predictions.

In the quarter-finals in Capital One Cup, Manchester City host Hull City.

Manchester City play very good this season. In Premier League they are standing at the top of the table and they are one of the main candidates to win the title. In the UEFA Champions League they have already qualified in the next phase before the last round. Their ambitions for this season is to win as many as possible trophies. City have problems with injuries this season. Nasri, Zabaleta, Silva and Aguero all are injured. Sergio Aguero has recovered form an injury and he played in the last match against Southampton, but he picked up an injury on that match, so he’s doubtful for this game and probably will be replaced by Wilfred Bony. Silva also recovered from an injury and he could get the chance on this match. This could be a good chance for Man City to win this competition because many strong teams have already eliminated from Capital One Cup such as Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Leicester…

Hull City play in the Championship and their main goal is to promote in Premier League next season. They are standing at the 4th position with only three points less than leader Brighton. Despite the fact that their primary goal this season is promotion, Hull City have already showed that they are playing very good in this competition. They have already eliminated two teams from Premier League, Swansea and Leicester City (both wins on away ground) and they will be fully motivated to repeat their success against City. Visitors played in the best football league in England last season and they caused many problems to Manchester City and took one point at Etihad (1-1). “Up until Friday we hadn’t been beaten for four months. We’ve had a really consistent run – we’ve only lost three out of 22 games, and so we can feel a bit confident.” – said their coach Steve Bruce.

Manchester City vs Hull City Prediction

Home side are favorites to qualify in the semi finals, but I can’t underestimate visitors who will do their best in order to make positive result. Personally, I won’t be surprised if Hull make a good performance and go through, so I will not predict the final score. I’ve noticed some interesting bet for this game. Wilfred Bony will be in the attack and this is a good chance for him to give his best and score and eventually got more minutes in other important matches and competitions.
