Manchester City - AC Milan Betting Preview: Expect a tight game with the Premier League side progressing

The Audi Cup kicks off this week with Manuel Pellegrini’s men looking to add the title to their Barclays Trophy, our tipster is backing them to progress to the final
Manchester City take on AC Milan at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday to kick off the Audi Cup in Germany.

City and Milan are joined by Sao Paulo and Bayern Munich in the four game tournament which is in it’s third year. This match should see the return of Mario Balotelli facing his old club, which is likely to steal the headlines in this fixture.

Man City come into this match on the back of winning the Barclays Asia Trophy in Hong Kong. Pellegrini’s men had a tough start to pre season, losing their opening two matches to Super Sport United and AmaZulu.

However, since then the Premier League side have put on two professional performances to beat South China and Sunderland. Coral price the English side as favourites at 11/10 (2.10) to progress to the final in 90 minutes.

AC Milan, unlike their opponents, have just started their pre-season campaign. The Rossoneri start their Serie A season in late August, with their match against City only their second match of the summer.

Massimilano Allegri will be keen for his side to better their performances in the last two Audi Cups, where they have finished fourth. Coral price them at 9/4 (3.25) to win the match. The same firm prices the draw at 23/10 (3.30).

A bet that stands out in this match is under 2.5 goals at 10/11 (1.91). Despite both sides having exceptional attacking line ups, City have proved tough to break down in recent weeks, as well as struggling to find the net. With this bet paying out in three of the last four pre-season friendlies for City, it’s certainly worth backing a tight match.

For those looking for more value, backing Man City to win at 11/10 (2.10) with Coral is certainly worth investing in. 

AC Milan are just kicking off their pre-season campaign, where as Man City have had game time and will be in better shape. When you also take into a fact Milan’s poor form in this competition in the past, 11/10 is a fantastic price.
