Manchester City vs Manchester United Betting Tips
Betting Tip: Joao Cancelo to be carded
I’ll be going into the player card market for my first selection and Joao Cancelo is a player that sticks out for me. He needs no introduction and he thrives in these kinds of matches.
The full-back has already picked up two yellow cards this season and for all the plaudits he gets in an attacking sense, look no further than his outside of the boot assist for Erling Haaland’s goal against Borussia Dortmund for proof of his brilliance going forward, he is also an excellent defender and reads the game well.
However, he is quite hot-headed and can often commit some reckless challenges. He’s made at least one successful tackle in all of his competitive fixtures for Manchester City this season, including five against Wolves last time out.
He will likely be up against Antony who will be looking to impress and utilise his pace, meaning that Cancelo will have his work cut out.
I’ll have a point on the City man going into the book at 3/1.
