Pep Guardiola’s men will be rooting for victory against the Foxes after been held last weekend at Turf Moor

Manchester City slug it out with Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium for their English Premier League game on Saturday evening.

However, having won their previous three games against the Foxes, Bet9ja is backing them with an offer of (1.22) to come out on top in the tie.

Leicester are still without their influential forward, Riyad Mahrez who has embarked on a self-imposed strike following his botched move to City in January.

Not only that, they are winless in their last two games and their record outside the King Power Stadium is not looking good with just a single win in six outings. As a result of this, the betting firm has tagged them as massive underdogs for this engagement at the price of (15.00).

The last meeting between both sides ended in a deadlock before the Sky Blues went on to win the tie on penalties in the EFL Cup. The bookies have quoted odds of (6.25) for the duel to end in a no-winner, no-vanquish outcome.

The Citizens are the highest scoring side in the top-flight this season with 79 goals which signifies that a lot of goals will be expected to surface here with odds of (1.35) quoted for over 2.5 goals.

Claude Puel’s charges have not failed to find the net in their last five games. The bookmakers are thus offering (1.88) for both sides to score.

Manchester City have scored within 30 minutes in their last three games and punters who are courageous can back them to repeat the feat at the price of (1.47) with Bet9ja.
