Brentford vs Manchester City
English Premier League
Date: 28 May 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Gtech Community Stadium (Brentford).
Brentford host champions Manchester City in the last game of the season on Sunday afternoon at the Gtech Community Stadium.
The Bees still have an outside shot at the seventh position as they sit two points below Aston Villa and one point shy of Tottenham ahead of the final day fixtures.
Catching the UEFA Europa Conference League spot is obviously a big longshot for Thomas Frank and his troops, more so because they take on Manchester City on Sunday.
Pep Guardiola rotated his squad heavily in the previous two games against Chelsea and Brighton.
However, we do expect to see the core of the first team back in the lineup on Sunday afternoon since the Spanish manager usually likes to keep his main stars in rhythm ahead of big matches.
The FA Cup final against Manchester United is scheduled for Saturday afternoon, seven days before the UEFA Champions League final against Inter Milan in Istanbul.
However, we also have to mention Brentford’s great spell of form in recent weeks. The hosts won four of the last five league affairs, including an impressive display in a 1-3 away victory over Spurs eight days ago.
These wins become even more impressive if we know they’ve achieved them without their talisman Ivan Toney who is banned from football until January next year.
Brentford vs Manchester City Head-to-head
- Manchester City have 17 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss in 19 league games at the Etihad this season. The lone defeat has come just against Brentford who shocked them 1-2 just before the World Cup break in November last year.
- The Citizens have beaten the Bees both home and away without conceding a single goal in the process in the previous term of the Premier League.
- Man City have scored a total of four goals in the last three clashes against Brentford.
Brentford vs Manchester City Prediction
We don’t expect Pep Guardiola to rotate much on Sunday afternoon. In these circumstances, Man City’s win is well worth backing at the 1.70 odds.
We will alternatively go for the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score bet at the 1.90 odds knowing the Bees have bagged five goals in the last two wins over West Ham and Spurs.
