Manchester City v Burton Albion betting tips

Posted on: 7th January 2019

It might be the EFL Cup semi-final stage but it doesn’t mean that Burton Albion have a prayer when they go to the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night.

Nigel Clough will have been an interested observer at the same ground on Sunday to see Manchester City play Rotherham in the FA Cup and the fact that Pep Guardiola’s side put seven past the Millers will have confirmed what he already thought.

Burton have done tremendously well to reach this stage of the competition and beaten several teams ranked higher than themselves including Burnley, Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest.

However, a clash against Manchester City is an altogether different proposition and this could be a hatful of goals for the home side who will simply be glad to have avoided Spurs and Chelsea who meet in the other tie.

This means that the Citizens can go out and try and put this tie to bed in the first leg of the tie, with Burton a mid-table League One side and some way behind Rotherham when it comes to the ability to compete.

Kevin de Bruyne will be grateful of the opportunity to play some more first-team football and this could be a game where Gabriel Jesus fills his boots as some of the City first-team players take a breather before attempting to overhaul that four-point gap that exists between themselves and Liverpool.
