Manchester City vs Watford Betting Tips

Manchester City have the opportunity to secure a domestic treble when they face Watford during this weekend’s FA Cup final. Pep Guardiola’s side have already landed the League Cup and the Premier League crown and they are now the bookies favourites to secure the FA Cup against the Hornets at the Wembley.

It’s hardly surprising that the Citizens have been the best team in England this campaign and they recently wrapped up the Premier League title after beating Brighton & Hove Albion on the final matchday of the season. In comparison, Watford went off the boil during the run-in and they ended the Premier League campaign on a rather disappointing note as three successive defeats dropped them to the bottom half of the table from a position of good strength in seventh.

Nonetheless, they have the opportunity to secure Europa League football by getting the better of the Citizens at Wembley but the task remains far from easy with the Mancunian giants possessing a wide range of attacking options within their ranks, while they have kept clean sheets in four of the previous five matches coming into the Wembley showpiece.

Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany has managed to overcome his muscular problems to form a steady partnership with Aymeric Laporte at the heart of the defence and the same has remained the case upfront where Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva has been regular choices under Pep Guardiola during the backend of the campaign.

Guardiola’s side have won each of the previous 10 meetings against Watford across all competitions with an average of three goals per game. They have kept shutouts in exactly 50 percent of those matches.
