Liverpool v Manchester Ciy Odds and Betting Preview

Carling Cup Semi Final 2nd Leg action from Anfield Stadium this evening features Manchester City versus Liverpool.

The whole game is Live on Sky Sports 1 High Definition, with a scheduled 7:45pm Kick Off Time.

Liverpool are desperate for some trophies and it seems the Carling Cup is their best realistic chance of winning any this season, manager Kenny Daglish will be quite happy to defend deep tonight and hit Manchester City on the counter attack as it has already proved a tactic that manager Roberto Mancini’s side could not break down in the first leg and with home advantage the job will become even more difficult for the City players tonight.

Manchester City have it all to do here there is no question about that and with Liverpool having a one goal to nil score line from the first leg manager Kenny Daglish will most likely adapt to defend in large numbers this evening to protect their lead and it is certainly going to take a very good performance by these City players to turn this cup game around.

However you should never completely write Roberto Mancini’s side off as they do have the quality of players to win any game put in front of them as already proved this season despite being away from home where they have hurt even the biggest sides.

Liverpool will be without Luis Suarez, Jay Spearing and Lucas for tonight’s game and Manchester City will be without Vincent Kompany and Mario Balotelli.

The Scout’s Match Verdict

As we can see by the data above Liverpool clearly dominate this fixture having won an incredible ‘thirty-nine’ times more than their hosts overall and ‘thirty-four’ times more at Anfield Stadium.

However, this Manchester City side is certainly by far the best squad of players that their fans have seen and coming off the back of a very good victory over Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend it’s extremely difficult to see Manchester City not scoring in this game.

When that happens Liverpool will have no option but to attack and we should then be in for a very exciting cup game with at least a couple of goals hitting the back of the nets and for me Manchester City look a very attractive price to go on and win this game.
