Barely a week after their breathtaking 2-2 draw in last weekend’s Premier League clash at the Etihad, these new-age Premier League foes renew their hostilities this weekend again but this time in the semifinal of the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon at Wembley Stadium.

They both qualified to the semifinals of the Champions League as the only remaining English teams and could yet again face off in the finals should they make it there.

This game is too close to call an outright winner but we will explore other interesting options from 22Bet and Greatodds for our betting tips today.

MANCHESTER CITY

Pep Guardiola paid Diego Simeone with his own coins in the 2nd leg of the UCL quarterfinal as his side stayed compact from start to finish to earn a 0-0 draw at the Wanda Metropolitano to knock out Atletico Madrid and book a ticket to the semis. De Bruyne’s winner at the Etihad in the first leg turned out to be the difference as Man City’s journey for redemption in this competition continues.

They had a slight edge in the weekend with Liverpool but couldn’t just put the to the dagger twice going ahead only for the Reds to respond in kind. That said, they are still a point ahead in a title race that could possibly go down the wire to the final game of the season.

City have had a relatively easier run in this FA Cup, disposing of lower league competition like Swindon Town, Fulham, Peterborough and EPL side Southampton en route to the semis. Guardiola has stumbled at this stage the last two seasons and will be hoping the third’s a charm here.

LIVERPOOL

Klopp made wholesale changes to his team as he rested his big guns in the 2nd leg of their semifinal against Benfica. This led to an open-ended shootout that ended in a 3-3 thrilling draw which was good enough to see the Reds through, having dominated the 1st leg in Lisbon with a 3-1 win. They will now face off in the semis against

The Reds have been in terrific form that has seen them losing only once in 23 games across all competitions (18W, 4D, 1L). This run is what has seen them bring the Premier League title that was once thought to be a foregone conclusion back into play and also earn them the league cup to boot.

They are very much in the hunt for an unprecedented quadruple and despite Klopp’s dismissal of such suggestions, we can expect them to put their best foot forward here. This is their first semifinal since the 2015-15 season and they too had to deal with lightweights like Shrewsbury Town, Cardiff City, Norwich City and Nottingham Forest to get here.

MAN CITY VS LIVERPOOL PREDICTIONS

Despite City winning against Atletico, they came off with a bloody nose with De Bruyne and Kyle Walker having to be taken off after they picked up injuries. De Bruyne is a particularly key piece in City’s jigsaw puzzle. If he misses this game as he is expected to, the advantage will certainly swing Liverpool’s way. They had the luxury of resting their key players and they should be ready for this tie. We fancy them to try and test Man City’s resolve early. We are therefore backing them to break the ice in this game by banging in the opening goal @ 2.00 with Greatodds Free Bet.

These two teams have certainly become two big rivals in England. Although we haven’t seen a lot of hostility like the type that characterized Man United and Arsenal rivalries from yesteryears, the fact that this is a semifinal and it is coming so soon after the weekend clash means there could be bad blood here. Familiarity often breeds contempt. This is likely to be a physical encounter and we are backing at least 4 bookings here @ 1.57 with 22Bet Bonus as our final call.
