Manchester City and Brentford face off on Wednesday night in the English Championship. Full statistics and current odds for the match can be found at 1xbet download.
After twelve consecutive Premier League wins, Manchester City lost points to Southampton in a 1-1 draw last night. Everyone immediately wondered whether it was too soon for the Citizens to be awarded another title. Looking at the points lost, Liverpool are not that far behind. Whatever the case, the Citizens expect to be back on the winning track on Wednesday.
Things have not been going well for Brentford in recent weeks. Thomas Frank’s side have achieved one win in their last seven Premier League games, with six defeats. As a result, the Bees have slipped to fourteenth place in the Premier League table. They will try to put themselves in contention at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.
– Brentford can become only the third team in the APL era to win an away game against the reigning champions in their debut season. Derby (1996/1997) and Bournemouth (2015/2016) have previously done so.
– Kevin de Bruyne has contributed 13 goals in his last 12 games against the season’s newcomers (5 goals + 8 assists).
– Manchester City have won each of their last 17 APL matches on Wednesday.
Given the current form of the teams, let’s bet on a confident win for Josep Guardiola’s team here. Our betting option: Manchester City win with a handicap (-2) at odds of 1.55.
