Wigan v Manchester City FA Cup Betting Tips
Wigan should have a great evening out on home soil in trying to deal with Manchester City. It will evoke memories of their famous FA Cup win over them back in the summer of 2013. The Latics have put together a good league campaign this season and are challenging for a spot in the Championship next season. They have done pretty well in the FA Cup too having beaten West Ham in the last round, posting a comfortable 2-0 win at the DW against the Hammers. In the third round, they also took down Premier League opposition as they pummelled Bournemouth in a replay at the DW Stadium as well. The Latics have won four of their last five games played now in all competitions and their home form is pretty strong with a nine-match unbeaten streak going (W6 D3). Remarkably they have not conceded a single goal in their last six home games now and have conceded in just one of their last nine at home in all competition. Again with two of their last three home games coming against Premier League sides, that’s pretty good. It may be worth a flutter on both teams to score at bet365 for 6/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 9th, 2018 at 11:37 p.m.). They will have a good go at this as there really is nothing for the Latics to lose.
These two met twice in the 2013/14 season, once in the League Cup, which Man City won combat 5-0 at home and then in the FA Cup. Wigan won that 2-1 at the Etihad which followed up their FA Cup final success over the Citizens in the summer of 2013. So the Latics have won two and lost two FA Cup ties against Manchester City in their history. Overall in the head to head across all competitions, Manchester City are 15-8 up with five drawn matches. The Latics have lost eight of their last ten against City, the two success that they had in that sequence were those FA Cup wins. Wigan are on a three-match losing streak at home against the Citizens, all without having scored a goal.
Manchester City will be expected to get through this tie and in the bet365 correct score market a Manchester City 2-0 and a Manchester City 3-0 are joint 11/2 favourite options* (Betting Odds taken on February 9th, 2018 at 11:37 p.m.). City fired off five goals in a big success against Leicester in the Premier League on the weekend, with Sergio Aguero getting four of those. They fired four past FC Basel in the Champions League on Tuesday as well. It is a busy month for the Citizens with the return of the Champions League and the EFL Cup final against Arsenal to come as well. Man City’s away form on the domestic front reads W3 D3 L1 in their last seven so they have been just a little bit wobbly on their travels. Still, they have plenty of scoring power, but as they may not totally be at full strength it is worth backing both teams to get on the scoresheet. The Citizens have only lost twice away from home in all competition this season and the worst case scenario for them would probably be a draw.
Who will win – Wigan v Manchester City FA Cup Predictions
It is pretty hard to imagine that Manchester City won’t find enough quality and class to get through this game. Wigan have done tremendously while this season and they are worth backing to get on the scoresheet at the very least. Manchester City to win both teams to score looks a viable option.
