With Pep Guardiola's men still far from solid at the back our tipster is backing the hosts to win a game in which both teams are on target

The final place in the last eight of the FA Cup will be decided when Manchester City host Huddersfield Town in a fifth round replay.

The Premier League side were forced to settle for a goalless draw when they visited the Championship side in the original tie, but Pep Guardiola's men are strong favourites to get things right this time around.

Indeed, the men from Manchester can be backed at 1/7 (1.14) with Betway to win inside 90 minutes, while the odds compilers offer just 1/20 (1.05) that Guardiola's charges reach the quarter-final stage of the competition.

David Wagner's side are flying high in the second tier, but victory here would represent a significant scalp and Betway make the Terriers a 22/1 (23.0) chance to win inside normal time, while Huddersfield can be backed at 9/1 (10.0) to progress and set up a last eight meeting with Middlesbrough. The tie must be settled on the night, but Betway offer 8/1 (9.0) that the match remains deadlocked at the end of 90 minutes.

Neither side has yet conceded a goal in the FA Cup this season and, should that trend continue, there would be value in Betway's 11/5 (3.20) quote for fewer than three goals to be scored; Guardiola's men can be backed at 4/6 (1.67) to keep a clean sheet, while Wagner's side are chalked up at a chunky 14/1 (15.0) to shut out the hosts for a second time.

There have, however, been goals at both ends in 11 of Manchester City's last 12 home fixtures; Betway go 6/5 (2.20) that the trend continues here, while the odds compilers go 1/3 (1.34) that more than two goals are scored when these teams renew their rivalry.


Huddersfield are hoping to make a push for promotion to the Premier League, while Guardiola's men have their sights set on an extended run in European competition following a thrilling 5-3 first leg victory against Monaco in the last 16 of the Champions League last month.

Nevertheless, there is plenty of potential for an open and entertaining clash and City will be determined not to fluff their lines in Guardiola's first home fixture in the competition and Betway's 7/4 (2.75) quote for the men from Manchester to come out on top in a game in which both teams make their mark could offer value.

There have been goals at both ends in five of Manchester City's last six home wins in all competitions and Betway's 7/4 (2.75) quote for that trend to continue looks like a solid option ahead of Wednesday's Cup clash.
