Manchester City vs Manchester United – Statistical Betting Prediction

Both team have equal opportunity in this game as none is seen as the under dogs, but with Aguero in front line for The Noisy Neighbours, City can score easily compared to United’s non performing front line even with their new boy Rashford.

I think the game will end in stalemate.
