Manchester United vs Manchester City Betting Tip and Prediction. In the big city derby in Premier League Manchester United host Manchester City at Old Trafford.
Manchester United have one point more than their big rival and their main goal is to finish the season at the top 3 teams and qualify in the UEFA Champions League directly. Home team is in the great form with five consecutive wins and they are looking to take another three points. They have eight points less than leader Chelsea who will play away against QPR, but the team from London have one match less, so it will be very hard for Manchester Utd to win the title this season. For this match their second top scorer Van Persie (24/10 f), Evans (13/0 d) and Pereira (1/0 f) are all out, while Smalling (18/3 d) and Shaw (13/0 d) are both doubtful.
Manchester City was one of the main candidates for the title, but their recent performance is very poor and now they are standing at the 4th position. In the last Premier League match they lost against Crystal Palace and definitely lost almost all chances to win the title. They still have a chance to finish the season at the top 3 and qualify in the UEFA Champions League directly, but they will have to improve their performance. In the last seven matches in all competitions Manchester City lost five times (2-0-5) and four of five defeats were on away ground. Boyata (1/0 d), Jovetic (17/5 f) and Bony (5/1 f) are all out, while their very important defender Kompany (22/0 d) is doubtful.

Manchester United vs Manchester City Prediction and betting tips:
In the matches like these everything is possible. Man Utd would be satisfied with one point, but the last 11 matches between Manchester United vs Manchester City in all competitions were finished with winner – 7 wins for City and 4 wins for United. I expect very interesting and open match between these two teams and goals in both nets.
