Our recommended bet for Saturday’s clash at the Etihad Stadium comes in the form of a Manchester City victory to nil, featuring two or more goals from Erling Haaland and over four goals total in the match.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £110 with Betway.
One of the more one-sided fixtures expected to play out in the Premier League this weekend will take place at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, November 12th.
The matchup in question will see title-chasing Manchester City play host a Brentford outfit struggling for results at present.
First, let’s delve into the recent endeavours of the former.
Pep Guardiola’s City, since a rare blip en route to defeat at the hands of Liverpool in the middle of last month, have since rattled off five wins and a draw from the club’s last six fixtures.
The latest of these came in midweek, when an EFL Cup showdown with Chelsea saw the Sky Blues keep alive their early-season hopes of an unprecedented quadruple, courtesy of goals on the part of Riyad Mahrez and Julian Alvarez.
In the Premier League, meanwhile, the champions did what champions do last time out, in recovering from Joao Cancelo’s early dismissal to eventually put Fulham to the sword by two goals to one.
The match-winner on that occasion, altogether unsurprisingly, came in the form of Erling Haaland, whose debut season in England has now given rise to an eye-watering 23 goals in just 16 appearances.
City, in turn, remain hot on the heels of table-topping Arsenal, two points adrift of Mikel Arteta’s early pace setters.
And few would likely bet against the Citizens continuing to pile the pressure on Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.
This comes with upcoming opponents Brentford currently in the thick of a concerning spell of form.
Thomas Frank’s men, all told, are winless in their last five across all competitions.
The Bees’ own midweek efforts, meanwhile, proved nothing short of embarrassing, as a meeting with a Gillingham outfit battling relegation from League Two culminated in a third round exit from the EFL Cup.
A 2-2 stalemate with bottom-of-the-table Nottingham Forest last weekend, meanwhile, leaves Brentford sitting 11th in the Premier League standings.
Whilst, upon initial inspection, such a position may not look like cause for immediate concern, it should be noted that the west Londoners are actually clear of the bottom three by just four points.
Come the close of the upcoming round of fixtures, Frank and co. could therefore find themselves in the thick of the relegation scrap.
This comes with Manchester City looking like overwhelming favourites to come away from the Etihad Stadium on Saturday on the right side of an altogether one-sided result.
