Manchester City v Brighton Prediction & Betting Tips, 9th May 20188th May 2018 / lee
Manchester City v Brighton Premier League Preview, 9th May 7.45pm
The Citizens have gotten their titles celebrations out of the way as they received the trophy on the weekend. This will be their final home game of the term. So the party time at the Etihad may get extended a little further. The game itself doesn’t really matter at all with everything is done and dusted for these two. City are the Champions and Brighton did enough with a win over Manchester United last weekend to guarantee survival.
Manchester City v Brighton Betting Odds*
Man City 1/11, Draw 9/1, Brighton 33/1* (Betting Odds taken at 00:06 a.m. on May 6th, 2018)
Manchester City News and Form
The Citizens were clearly a bit distracted on the weekend as they never really found their groove against a resilient Huddersfield at the Etihad, playing out a 0-0 draw. That leaves the Champions with a W15 D2 L1 record for the season on home soil. They are chasing records but they received the Premier League trophy on the weekend so it was more of a celebration afternoon than anything. City average 3.2 goals per game at home this season and with Brighton already safe for the season, then it will be likely that City steps it up again in this one. In the Coral correct score market a Manchester City 3-0 is at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 3:15 a.m. on May 7th, 2018) and frankly how many off days are they likely to have? The Citizens have scored 67% of their home goals in the second half of matches but even with that, they have been leading at half time in twelve of their eighteen home fixtures so far this term. Only three of their fifteen homes wins have been by a one-goal margin.
Brighton News and Form
So Brighton are safe after producing a surprise home win over Manchester United last Friday. That was a massive result for them is it guaranteed their safety. It also left them unbeaten in three games and each of the games in that sequence were against current top seven sides. They haven’t conceded in their last two games so maybe they can take some inspiration from Huddersfield’s performance on the weekend and scrap out something from this game. It is still a tough ask though and they have every right to relax now. They face a trip to Anfield to take on Liverpool next weekend. Brighton away form for the season is W2 D5 L10 and they are winless in their last eleven away from the Amex. The Seagulls have managed just the nine road goals this term and that’s it. A Manchester City to win to nil wager is at 8/15 odds with Coral* (Betting Odds taken at 2:05 a.m. on May 7th, 2018). Seven of Brighton’s nine away defeats this term have been by a two-goal margin.
Manchester City v Brighton Head to Head
Manchester City collected a 2-0 away win at the Amex back in August when these two came together. That was the first league meeting between the two clubs since the old Division 2 1988/89 season. Overall in the head to head between them, Man City are 9-4 up with five drawn matches.
Who will win – Manchester City v Brighton Predictions
Manchester City will want to sign off in style at home for the season and put an extra shine on the celebrations. It should be a win for the Champions and more likely than not it will be to nil as well with no pressure on Brighton to do anything.
