Manchester City vs. Manchester United Betting Tips 06/03/2022

Benson Chikezie, Senior Author

The famous Manchester Derby is here again, and this time Manchester United travel to the Etihad Stadium for a crunch clash with the league champions Manchester City on Matchday 28. The kickoff is scheduled for 22:00 IST on the 6th of March 2022.

City will hope to do the double over their eternal rivals to preserve their lead at the top of the table with Liverpool breathing down their necks. United have been largely successful in their trips to the Etihad Stadium and will fancy their chances of giving Guardiola’s men a run for their money on Sunday.

Teams Status

Here is the latest on the form and team news for the Manchester clubs:

Manchester City Form and Team News

Pep is doing wonders at the Etihad. His Manchester City side have excelled once again in the league and are favorites to retain their crown. Although they suffered a recent loss, the league champions are in great form of late, both in attack and defence, as they have kept clean sheets in 5 of their last 6 games.

City are top of the log with 66 points from 27 league games, scoring 64 and conceding 17 in 21 wins, 3 draws, and 3 losses. Raheem Sterling leads the scorer’s chart for Manchester City with 10 goals and 1 assist.

For injuries and suspensions, Stephen Zackary, Palmer Cole, and Ruben Dias are out with injuries, while Kyle Walker is unavailable for selection.

Manchester United Form and Team News

Manchester United have seen their trophy haul equaled by Liverpool over the weekend and might have to endure yet another season without a trophy since 2017. The Red Devils have endured mixed fortunes this season, and although they have not lost away from home since November, they find themselves struggling for 4th position with Arsenal and West Ham.

3 draws and 2 wins in their last 5 league games mean that Ralf Ragnick’s side are losing points even though they are not losing games. They have 13 wins, 8 draws, and 6 losses this season, have scored 44 goals, and conceded 34. United will need to up their game to prevent a repeat of the reverse fixture earlier in the season, which they lost by 2 goals to nil.

For their team news, Manchester United will be without Scott McTominay, and Edinson Cavani for the trip to City as both players are currently sidelined with injuries.

Tipster’s Angle

City won the reverse fixture at Old Trafford and will hope to repeat the feat at the Etihad Stadium, although they have only won 1 of their last 7 home games of this fixture. The head-to-head record between these two is almost evenly balanced— 5 wins for City, 4 for United, and 1 draw.

United have suffered defeats at the hands of their fellow elite teams this season, but this is the famous Manchester Derby, and the atmosphere will be favorable for an electric performance from the Red Devils. Here are the most likely outcomes for this fixture, in our opinion:

Tip: Either Team To Win @ 1.16

There has only been 1 draw in the last 10 Manchester derbies, so we expect one of these two sides to grind out the victory on the night. United need all three points to keep pace with Arsenal, West Ham, and Chelsea, while Manchester City hope to maintain their 6-point lead at the top of the table. Either team to win is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.16 odds.

Tip: Draw In At Least Either Half @ 1.74

Although this is an unlikely tip, this fixture is expected to be highly contested, and City may have a hard time breaking Manchester United down, especially in the first half. We expect either half to end in a draw, as that outcome has occurred 29 times for both teams this season. Draw in either half is available on the Melbet sportsbook at 1.74 odds.


The Manchester derby has lived up to its billing over the years, and with a lot at stake for both sides, we expect a highly contested match at the Etihad Stadium.
