We have a betting tip for this year’s FA Cup final where Manchester City face Wigan. City have been focussing on this final for some time, while the Latics have been embroiled in a relegation dogfight, with survival still their main objective. Will Mancini’s greater need for a trophy ensure there is no upset?
Match: Manchester City v Wigan
Betting tip: Manchester City to win to nil
Best Odds: 2.38 with 888Sport
Kick off: 17:15 11/05/2013
It is hard to picture Wigan causing an FA Cup Final upset on Saturday. They are still under considerable threat from the Premier League trap door, and also have numerous injuries to contend with, notably in defence. While the cup could be seen as a welcome distraction with the pressure of the League lifted, the Latics are likely to have gone beyond that point. There is also some compelling evidence to suggest the Citizens can get the job done without conceding. In seven League matches against sides in the top four, Wigan have lost six to nil. City have won to nil in ten of their eighteen games at home, and while this final is on neutral territory, both league fixtures between the two clubs ended with the Manchester side winning without a goal conceded. The disappointment of both Premier League and Champions League campaigns means that City have been focussing on this game since they defeated Chelsea in the Semi-final in mid-April. With such desire and focus, it is hard to look beyond a relatively comfortable Cup final success for the Citizens.
