Holly Thackeray | February 21, 2016
Coral’s bet of the day
- Both teams found the net in four of their last seven meetings
- The Blues have bagged 12 goals in five games
- Man City have scored in, but lost, two matches on the trot
Chelsea 7/2 to beat Man City and both sides score
It is only fitting that Coral’s latest pick for bet of the day features Sunday’s headline game, as Chelsea and Manchester City help punters see out Sunday with a thrilling FA Cup fifth round rumble at Stamford Bridge.
Our highlighted wager for the weekend’s biggest wrangle, is a sensational match special of 7/2 (maximum stake £20) for Chelsea to be triumphant but both teams to score. Read on to find out just why we fancy this enhanced flutter…
Home advantage should really help the Blues, who have not lost on their own soil in any competition since Guus Hiddink returned to the dugout.
While, the west Londoners mauled MK Dons 5-1 last time out in the FA Cup, to set up this fixture, and have been running rampant of late with 12 strikes from five outings across all competitions.
Yet, crucially, the capital club have kept just one clean sheet in their past five frays.
Man City struggling at vital moment
As for their opposition, City’s season has taken somewhat of a sour turn recently, with back-to-back defeats to surprise Premier League title rivals Leicester City and Tottenham.
The Citizens conceded five in those two tussles, and such a leaky defence could see them next pay a cup price.
Yet, the Sky Blues’ strikeforce has not slowed, with City finding the target even in defeat. Supplied by the likes of Raheem Sterling and David Silva, strikers Sergio Aguero and Kelechi Iheanacho have provided a steady stream of strikes.
So, without John Terry to shore up the Blues’ backline, City will surely fancy their chances of finding the net.
Furthermore, as both teams have been on target in four of their previous seven clashes, odds of 7/2 (max stake £20) for in-form Chelsea to win but both teams score looks sensational.
