Coral’s bet of the day

- The Sky Blues have clocked up two successive stalemates in all comps
- Man Utd have also drawn two tussles on the trot
- Both teams have split the spoils often in big games this term
Man City and Man Utd 13/5 for derby draw
Coral mark a splendid Super Sunday of all-star scuffles by picking out a derby dabble of the day for punters, as Manchester City and Manchester United continue to duel for that last top four Premier League place, with this clash their last chance to wound one another in the Champions League spot race.
There is a very generous price of 13/5 for bitter inter-city enemies the Citizens and United to end evenly at the Etihad, which looks worth a weekend wager when considering the current form of both clubs.
So, read on to see just why we think you should consider this Northwest result for a fab flutter…
Mancunians lacking killer edge
Ahead of this season, many in Manchester will have hoped that this late campaign clash could have been a potential title decider, but instead this encounter is set to be a scrap for fourth.
Both Northwest clubs have underwhelmed due to inconsistencies this season, which has made them exciting for neutrals, but far from winning machines.
In particular, Man City have secured just two wins in normal time of their past five frays in all competitions and, despite a dramatic spot-kick Capital One Cup triumph, have looked rather lacklustre.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men have stumbled to two draws in as many of their last games, failing to find the net in either. While, Man Utd have not fared much better, as Louis van Gaal’s guys are without a win in four fixtures, including also ending evenly in their last two.
Customers only need cast their minds back to the reverse on the Red Devils’ patch back in October, to remember how the build-up to the battle only resulted in a toothless 0-0 scoreline.
The Red Devils have recorded 13 draws in normal time across all competitions so far this campaign, including against City, Liverpool, Leicester City and versus West Ham United twice, hinting at an inability to finish opponents off in high-stakes clashes.
While, the Sky Blues have split the spoils on eight occasions in 90 minutes, also against the likes of the Hammers, Reds and Foxes, with three of those in their previous six outings.
So, backing a draw on the blue half on Manchester looks fantastic value at 13/5 indeed!
