Watford FC vs Manchester City – Premier League.
Vicarage Road Stadium, Watford – 21st May 2017, 15:00.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
England Premier League will be finished this weekend and many eyes are pointed at Vicarage Road Stadium where Watford FC are hosting Manchester City on Sunday afternoon. The reason behind this is that Pep Guardiola’s team has to secure three points in order to stay in the 3rd position on the table and earn direct ticket for UEFA Champions League. Potential draw would mean they would have to go through the qualifiers, while and upset and victory for Watford could even push them to the 5th position, which would be a big disaster for the Citizens considering the amount of money they invested into the new squad.
As for their opposition, Watford FC have nothing to worry about even though they are not far away from the red line. The Hornets have secured at least one more year in Premier League a while ago, so the recent negative streak of six losses from the last seven outings is not concerning them that much. Also, Walter Mazzarri is having a lot of troubles with injured players, being unable to count on services of Kaboul, Zarate, Britos, Cathcart and Pereyra. In addition to injured players, Prodl will be serving suspension in the last round as well.
This said, 2/7 odds on away win are definitely not surprising anyone. Manchester City have picked up the right pace in the last three rounds, winning three games in a row with quite dominant 10 – 2 goal difference.
Since we believe Guardiola will press the attack from the first whistle, looking for an early goal, backing Manchester City to win the game in Asian Handicap -1.5 at 7/10 is going to be the top pick here. Watford’s defenders have conceded eight goals in the last three games, and it is very hard to expect any big improvements when playing the last match of the season which has no pressure.
When it comes to the goal scorers market, Fernando Gabriel Jesus to score anytime at 8/13 should be a decent banker as well. This youngster has been phenomenal after recovering from an injury and will be one of the top options up front.
