Football expert betting tips for today
Manchester City hosts AFC Bournemouth at the Etihad in a game from the 36th round of the Premier League. We are going to preview this fixture in our football expert betting tips for today.
Manchester City will host the Cherries in a great mood. On Monday we got the news that the Cityzens’ ban to participate in the Champions League has been overturned. This means that Pep Guardiola’s side will challenge for the most prestigious trophy in European football next season. City already secured the second spot in the Premier League, so they are already qualified for the next edition of the Champions League.
In their last two games the Cityzens achieved two consecutive 5-0 wins over Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion. Scoring 10 goals in these two matches, they proved how deadly they could be in attack. With 72 points won so far, Man City can’t be beaten for the second place in the league.
The manager Guardiola continues to prepare his team for the Champions League knockout phase matches in August. That’s why he uses his best players in each one of the games, keeping them in a good match fitness. We don’t believe we are going to see an exception on Wednesday.
AFC Bournemouth are still in the relegation zone of the Premier League and the situation is not good at all for them. The Cherries are 18th in the league with 31 points and they are currently three points behind the 17th Watford and the safe zone. It’s a bad luck for them to face Manchester City in such a moment when they need points so much.
Despite of Bournemouth needing the points more we believe that Manchester City won’t be joking around against them at the Etihad. The former champions are playing for their own pride at the moment and they are doing it pretty good. In our football expert betting tips we expect another solid performance from Guardiola’s team.
