Wolves vs Manchester City Betting Tips
The last time these two played, the score was 2:0 for the away side. Manchester City were the match hosts in that game and the defeat at Etihad was a huge shock in the footballing community. The Sky Blues did manage to recuperate from that defeat, although they haven’t too impressive. At least not as impressive as Liverpool and Leicester City, who are currently above Manchester City.
Depending on how things go on Boxing Day, when Leicester City welcome Liverpool at King Power Stadium, the title race could practically be over. At the moment, Liverpool have 11 points more than Man City, as well as one game less. This means that the point gap could become impossible to bridge. Leicester City could make things more interesting if they manage to beat Liverpool. Still, one thing is certain – regardless of Boxing Day results, Man City need to go for a win at Molineux Stadium.
On paper, Man City is the favorite in this game. However, the same was the case in their last meeting which ended in Wolves’ favor. The team from Wolverhampton has shown many times that they’re real giant-slayers. In fact, since their arrival back to the Premier League from the Championship, Wolves have snatched points away from all the traditional Big Six teams.
It’s been a similar case in the 2019-20 season, in which Wolves played draw with Arsenal and won all three points against Man City. Wolves have been in a decent form lately, especially in the final third. This team has scored at least a goal in every single match since 19th September when they lost to Braga in the Europa League.
Considering how poor Man City are at the back, it seems that Wolves will have no problems finding the net at least once. The reigning champion of the Premier League has allowed in 12 out of 13 previous matches. They did, however, scored much more goals than what they conceded. In fact, Man City is the team with the highest number of goals scored so far. They’ve scored a total of 50 goals, which is almost two times the number of goals scored by Wolves (26 goals).
