Bet of the Day: Man City to stay on course for quadruple

League leaders should be too strong for Cardiff

Manchester City face Cardiff City in the FA Cup this weekend looking to keep their hopes of a historic quadruple alive.

Cardiff may be third in the Championship but they’ll have their work cut out against Pep Guardiola’s side.

City are likely to score at least once, but Cardiff have fired a blank in two of their last three home games.

Along with the gulf in quality, that’s why today’s Coral Bet of the Day is Man City to Win to Nil at 5/4.

Ace Aguero

Guardiola is likely to shuffle his pack ahead of a busy February schedule, but he doesn’t have many options up front.

Gabriel Jesus is still injured and City missed out on Alexis Sanchez, which means Sergio Aguero is set to continue up front.

The Argentina international bagged a hat-trick against Newcastle United last week. He’s 11/4 to score two or more goals at the Cardiff City Stadium.

City in Control

The Premier League leaders can overwhelm opponents with the sheer number and variety of attacking threats they have.

If you manage to keep Aguero quiet, you’ll still have to deal with the likes of Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne. If their intricate passing can’t find a way through, the full-backs stretch play in wide areas.

They’ve scored three goals in each of their last three games. It’s 4/5 for Man City and Over 2.5 Goals here.
