After having been beaten by Chelsea and Leicester, Manchester City will try to get satisfaction in the upcoming game of the 16th round of the EPL against Watford. The Hornets fit well for the Eagles by style, as Mazzarri’s team tries to play football itself, and lets an opponent to be creative, which is exactly what Man City needs.
The handicap between Chelsea and Manchester City has reached seven points, although recently, the Eagles had an opportunity to even lead EPL’s tournament table. But two very unpleasant defeats happened, which revealed Man City’s weaknesses in certain aspects. Fernandinho and Aguero will not play in the forthcoming match once again, but even without these two creative players Man City have some people, who can score goals.
Watford is a team, capable of surprising. During the course of the tournament, Walter Mazzarri’s men have lost big to Liverpool, 1:6, but also have had some great matches either, like the game against Man Utd, for example, which finished with the victory of the Hornets. What these encounters have in common is that those were upper-tier games, as the last match of Watford against Everton, which finished with the victory of Mazzarri’s men, 3:2. After 15 played rounds, Watford have 21 points in the asset and the seventh place, and if the team will keep up the dynamics of points gaining, so it’s quite possible for them to count on a spot in Eurocups.
Watford and Manchester City are both upper-tier teams, which means the match between them will likely be effective, and betting lines prove it.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals in the match.
