Manchester City will play at home against Arsenal London in the third round of the English Championship. The match will take place on August 28 in Manchester.
August turns out to be completely different from what Josep Guardiola wanted . The main disappointment is the failure in negotiations with Tottenham on the transfer of Harry Kane . City offered an impressive amount, but in London they did not even pay attention to it – everything is in order there with money.
Now the media are actively reporting that the English champion may sign Cristiano Ronaldo . Once upon a time it was impossible to believe in this, but now, after Messi’s transfer to PSG, this is already quite an everyday story.
In addition, Man City lost 0-1 to Leicester in the FA Super Cup. Not the biggest problem, but there was still some sediment.
The meeting with Tottenham on the football field also ended in defeat – 0: 1. Guardiola’s tactical plan failed again.
Man City won their first victory in the new season last Saturday, defeating Norwich at home – 5: 0. However, nothing else was expected from this game.
It is very likely that someone will be out of work very soon. Arsenal failed miserably in the first matches, so it is not surprising that the press immediately reported on the possible resignation of Mikel Arteta.
Arsenal are as bad as they were last season. In the first round, the Gunners lost 0: 2 to Brentford. Even staffing problems do not justify such a weak game.
The match against Chelsea ended with a similar score – 0: 2. Without a chance, the victory of the opponent in the class.
In the middle of the week , Arsenal slightly reassured the fans by beating West Bromwich in the League Cup 6-0. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored three times, Alexander Lacazette scored another goal. Martin Edegaard, who had just transferred from Real Madrid, also took part in the game .

After two depressing matches, they do not believe in Arsenal at all, but we still have to remember that the Gunners did not play with the optimal squad against Brentford and Chelsea. Aubameyang and Lacazette had covid, Odegaard only arrived this week.
Now the Arsenal squad looks much better, and, above all, it concerns the attack.
Therefore, our bet is that both will score 2.12.

There are problems, but Arsenal are not so hopeless after all, so as not to count on even one goal in the match against Man City.
