Cheltenham v Manchester City prediction & betting tips brought to you by football expert Tom Love.
- Cheltenham have seen under 3.5 goals in 21 of 23 league games.
- Manchester City have kept a clean sheet in 6 of their last 8 FA Cup games.
- Manchester City have won 11 of their last 12 FA cup games
It should be a fairly routine win for the visitors here but this is the FA Cup after all. One thing I’m confident on is league 2 Cheltenham will give Pep’s men a good game. Michael Duff has done a really impressive job at Whaddon Road, his sides have been hard to beat, well balanced and good to watch.
Backing the visitors to win in a game featuring under 4.5 goals looks a good way of boosting the 1/9 quotes on the hosts. I expect the Robins to set up with 10 men behind the ball and try and benefit from any set piece situations they may get with the likes of Will Boyle and Charlie Raglan up from the back. Also keep an eye out for Ben Tozer and his long throw, it’s a nice weapon for the hosts to have.
City should have too much though even if they rotate heavily. Their games have been low scoring this season and clean sheets have been commonplace. It’s probably going to be more of the same here with a 2-0 or 3-0 scoreline likely.
