Manchester City hosts Birmingham City at the Etihad in a match from the third round of the
FA Cup. Stay with us and our football prediction betting tips today for this game. Let’s get
to work!
Manchester City will try to win the FA Cup for a second time under the management of
Pep Guardiola. Last season the Cityzens reached the 1/2-finals at the Wembley, but they
got eliminated by future champions Arsenal. Now City are eager to leave their mark on the
competition again.
Lately Guardiola’s team is showing the consistency the Catalan manager wants to see.
Manchester City are enjoying a run of five consecutive wins in all competitions. The former
champions had some trouble in temrs of consistency, but lately they are performing better.
During the week Manchester City reached the Carabao Cup final after a 2-0 win against
Manchester United at the Old Trafford. City scored both of their goals after the break when
John Stones and Fernandinho put the ball behind Dean Henderson’s back.
Birmingham City are currently playing in the Championship, but they are not even close to
the shape they would like to enjoy. Aitor Karanka’s team is without a win in its six matches
in all competitions. Birmingham are currently 18th in the Championship standings and this
season is not really going very well for them.
Pep Guardiola could be making some changes in his line-up compared to the game
against Manchester United during the week. We expect to see players such as Rodri and
Gabriel Jesus returning to the line-up. The club legend Sergio Aguero is another option for
the starting eleven.
That’s our football prediction betting tips today for the FA Cup fixture between Manchester
City and Birmingham City at the Etihad. It would be a massive surprise if the Cityzens
make a mistake here. They are among the favourites to reach the final of the competition.
