Betting tips Manchester City vs. Watford

City to stroll to success at Wembley

Watford head to the FA Cup final for the first since 1984 when they take on Manchester City at Wembley this weekend but will they be able to cause an upset?

How they got here

Watford had a tricky start when they faced non-league Woking on the road in the third round. Despite it looking like a potential banana skin, they were able to see off their hosts in a comfortable 2-0 win. Man City smashed seven past Rotherham as they strolled through to round four.

Watford continued to impress in the next round as they headed to St James’ Park beating Newcastle 2-0. Pep Guardiola’s men made light work of Premier League Burnley smashing them 5-0 at the Etihad.

Round five and again Watford were on the road and again came out with a win, this time beating QPR 1-0 at Loftus Road. Man City faced the brilliant Newport, showing their quality to win 4-1 at Rodney Parade.

In the quarter-finals City edged out Swansea in an entertaining game in South Wales, winning a five-goal thriller 3-2. Watford beat Crystal Palace 2-1 to set up a semi-final against Wolves.

Javi Garcia’s side looked to be heading out, trailing at home to the West Midlands club 2-0 heading into the final 11 minutes but Gerard Deulofeu got the ball rolling for an excellent comeback. The Spaniard grabbed his second in extra time to send the Hornets to Wembley.

Man City edged past Brighton at the Etihad setting up an intriguing FA Cup final.

Is there hope for the Hornets?

How to put this politely…

The town of Watford has more chance of being named the ‘Florence of England’ than Javi Garcia’s men have of winning the FA Cup.

They come into this game on the back of a three-game losing streak having scored just twice in those games. Not ideal preparation for the biggest game the club has faced in recent years.

The key will be staying in the game against a City side that could be complacent following the successful defence of their title.

City on a high

The win at Brighton was terrific for City and they will want to keep that mood going into the summer break.

Pep Guardiola will want to finish the season on a high an put the disappointment of the Champion League defeat behind them so it could be a fairly free and easy performance from the Citizens.

Manchester City vs Watford betting tip

Hard to know where to go with this one such is City’s quality. Looking at the previous few performances backing Manchester City to win by three goals at odds of 22/5 is great value and not too hard to see coming to fruition.
