Man City v Liverpool betting tips: Wembley repeat for title rivals

| 14.04.2022

Preview, odds and Man City v Liverpool betting tips

The Premier League title rivals meet for a second successive weekend but this time there must be a winner as we pick out some Man City v Liverpool betting tips for their FA Cup semi-final.

Sunday’s 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium means both teams still have a realistic chance of winning the league and neutrals will hope for a similarly entertaining clash in the cup tie, which will go to extra time and penalties if needed.

Saturday’s match at Wembley kicks off at 3.30pm and is live on BBC One.

More of the same please

The much-hyped Premier League contest on Sunday lived up to its billing as Kevin De Bruyne and Diogo Jota traded goals inside the opening 13 minutes.

Gabriel Jesus restored City’s lead before the break but Sadio Mane levelled again just 47 seconds into the second half.

Both sides had chances to win it but City had the best of them. Raheem Sterling had a strike ruled out after a very tight offside decision by VAR before Riyad Mahrez hit the post late on and chipped over from another gilt-edged opportunity in injury time.

City will not have home advantage this weekend but are the favourites to go through at 7/10 or 5/4 to win in 90 minutes.

Liverpool are 23/20 to keep their dream of an historic quadruple alive while another draw is 5/2 in the Man City v Liverpool odds, with a score draw 3/1.

Goals to flow once more?

Both of this season’s league meetings between these teams have ended 2-2 so it would be understandable if a repeat proves popular in Man City v Liverpool betting tips at 11/1.

The last four meetings have produced goals at both ends as have seven of the last eight so it would be a surprise if the cup tie is a cagey affair given that the league meeting was arguably more important.

Both teams to score again can be backed at 8/15 while over 3.5 goals is odds against at 8/5 despite having paid out in five of the last six meetings.

City must be clinical

City were left to rue a missed opportunity to open up a four-point gap in the title race as they were twice pegged back on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola’s team were especially dominant in the first half against out-of-sorts opponents but failed to take advantage.

City defender Kyle Walker said: “I think the manager got the tactics and the game plan spot on but it’s one of those games.

“The hardest job in football is putting the ball in the back of the net. Sometimes it comes off and sometimes it doesn’t.”

City are 9/5 to race out of the blocks and again win the first half while the Reds to then fight back for a draw after 90 minutes is 12/1 for Man City v Liverpool betting tips.

There are plenty of #YourCall options available on the FA Cup semi-final, even for punters struggling to pick a winner.

A goal in both halves and a draw is 5/1 or both teams to score, over 2.5 goals and either team to win is 5/4, while if Sunday’s game is repeated then De Bruyne and Jota both to score at 9/1 would be a winner.
