In the 1990s thanks to a rich owner, Blackburn were riding high at the top of the Premier League while Manchester City struggled in the second tier a lot of the time. Nowadays, the roles have reversed as the two sides meet in Saturday’s early kick off in the FA Cup.
Blackburn are currently 10th in the Championship, just two points outside the Play-Off places. They’ve lost just one of their last six in the league and do have an outside chance of promotion. Manchester City are unbeaten in nine, with eight wins and are big favorites here, and rightly so.
There is no value with Man City at their very short price but once again when it comes to Pellegrini’s men, the both teams to score and match result market offers a big price for me. Manchester City to win and both teams to score is 7/4 with William Hill and considering City’s form and considering they have kept just one clean sheet on the road this season this looks good. Thrown in the fact Blackburn have scored in four of their last five games, this looks a good bet as you are going to see.
One man who isn’t always a fan favourite but seems to know where the net is in the cup competitions is Edin Dzeko. He has managed four goals in three League Cup appearances this season and two in five in the Champions League. He should start in this match and is 4/1 to score first with Coral, as good a first goalscorer tip as any for this match.
Staying with Dzeko, he is 5/4 to score in a Man City win. I fancy City to score a few goals and he should be amongst them, making this look another decent price.
