Manchester City v Wigan Betting Tips and Predictions


There is a repeat of last year’s final in the FA Cup this weekend and we have free football betting tips.

Manchester City will be in a buoyant mood following there League Cup success last weekend and will be hoping to book another trip to Wembley this weekend. Three consecutive home wins have seen City reach this stage as they overcame Blackburn, Watford and Chelsea. Their form of late hasn’t been their best, losing recent home matches against Chelsea and Barcelona.

They take on a Wigan side going strong in the Championship and currently sitting sixth in their hope of an immediate return to the Premier League. The Latics have won five matches on the spin but will have to be at their very best if they hope to spring an upset.

It is also worth bearing in mind that these two sides met in the Capital One Cup at the Etihad Stadium in September, City ran out convincing 5-0 winners on that occasion.

There is as you can imagine little value backing the hosts here and I do expect them to post a dominant performance and go through. Considering the result when these two sides met earlier in the season and the fact that Wigan may rest players for their league game on Tuesday night, Manchester City to win with a -2 handicap at 6/5 with Winner looks a good bet here.

On the other hand though, to cover ourselves we have seen Manchester City be susceptible to a stupid goal at home every now and again. Watford managed to score two here in the fourth round as have Cardiff City and Victoria Plzen. With them perhaps playing a slightly weaker side, they could leak a goal at the back. So get on Man City to win and both teams to score at 5/2 with Coral.
