Bet of the Day: Robins to find the net against Man City
Second leg set up for a screamer
Bristol City will be looking to pull off a huge shock in their Carabao Cup semi-final second-leg at Ashton Gate tonight.
The Robins host Manchester City looking to pull off a famous win and send them to Wembley.
It’s not an unthinkable scenario, either – football has a propensity for some major upsets. However, City were back to their roaring best against Newcastle United at the weekend, winning 3-1.
Lee Johnson’s outfit do have a chance, though. The Robins bagged a decent draw at Derby County last week to stop a rot of five defeats on the spin.
Johnson might not be as cautious here knowing his side need to overcome a 2-1 deficit. A 1-0 win would see this go to extra-time. But Bristol City rarely do 1-0 wins. And Man City rarely suffer 1-0 defeats.
There should be more goals at the Gate tonight. The Robins have only failed to score in four home games all season. While Man City do what Man City do – attack, attack, attack.
Coral’s Bet of the Day is Both Teams To Score at 11/10.
Expect a goal-laden cup tie
If the Coral News Team are backing goals in this game, there are also other markets to look at.
It’s 22/1 the Championship outfit win with both teams finding the net. While they are remarkable odds, it’s more likely Pep Guardiola’s side win with the same market at 19/10.
A safer bet is the 7/10 on the Citizens winning with Over 2.5 Goals in the game. After all, Man City have averaged over three goals per game under the Catalan coach.
Look no further than Bristol City’s Bobby Reid for a nicely-priced goalscorer in this second leg.
The Robins forward was a constant menace to the Man City defence at the Etihad as he bobbed and weaved between the lines.
The 24-year-old is 13/5 to net anytime. For the opposition, look no further than Leroy Sane.
The German international has been in tremendous form of late, scoring in the defeat at Liverpool. He also set up Sergio Aguero with a wonderful mazy run in the win over Newcastle.
The ex-Schalke youngster is 7/5 to score Anytime.
