Watford vs Manchester City Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Tuesday, 21 July 2020. Scheduled Kick-off 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET at the Vicarage Road.
Pep Guardiola’s men were supposed to take their place in the finals of the FA Cup. Instead, they were unceremoniously kicked out by the Gunners, and rumors are spiking as to whether they would be able to overcome Real Madrid in the coming Round of 16 game in the Champions League.
The Citizens have two games remaining in the league, and they need to build up lost confidence as well as get back in sync. It helps that they are taking on relegation-battlers in their remaining fixtures.
Meanwhile, the Hornets are going through a testing period. They are placed 17th in the table at the moment, and need to keep a hold of that spot for two more game weeks.
Considering the overall form of both teams, the superior h2h history of Pep’s men, and most importantly, their determination to get back into form – expect a Manchester City win this Tuesday.

Watford vs Manchester City: Prediction
Hayden Mullins’s men lost 3-1 on the road the last match-day, against West Ham. In the meanwhile, Guardiola’s men recorded a 2-1 victory at home over Bournemouth.
As things stand, the Citizens are the overwhelming favorites to post the win. They are desperate to silence their critics after their FA Cup loss, and also need to send out a statement to Real Madrid.
On top of that, they had won the reverse h2h fixture with an 8-0 scorecard, and they have a 100% unbeaten record at this stadium over the past two decades.
In fact, disregarding a 1-1 draw in 2007, they actually do have a 100% winning record at this venue. Moreover, they had also scored a total of 33 goals from the past seven overall h2h games.
Taking into account these observations, expect a huge Manchester City win this Tuesday.
