Manchester City vs Huddersfield PREVIEW & PREDICTION 19/08/2018


On Sunday, at 13:30, Manchester City receives Huddersfield’s visit in a second round of the Premier League. An unbalanced match is announced, in which “citizens” will press the pedal from the first half to secure victory in front of a lower rival. Huddersfield will make a 100% defensive play away.

No wonder we see odds so unbalanced. Manchester City has many classes over Huddersfield, which showed its limits last round with Chelsea (0-3). Wagner’s band did not make remarkable transfers this summer and surprisingly avoided relegation to the previous championship. This time, however, the “terriers” will be hard to resist in 38 stages, and the start of the season is infernal.

Mahrez runs the fixed phases in his new team.

Pep Guardiola does an excellent job at Man. City and its team look even better tied to last season. Players who are completing the formula “Citizens” have been brought in, and Mahrez seems to be well adapted to his new club. About the value of the City lottery is useless to talk: eloquent is that Pep has allowed him to reserve Kevin De Bruyne on “Emirates”, the Belgian being sent on the field in the second half to close the Arsenal account .

On the last move on “Etihad” Huddersfield got a white draw, but the match was no longer meaningful for the hosts who used more reserves. Huddersfield has not yet won against City and it does not seem like this will happen soon. Knowing how meticulously Guardiola is preparing for such matches, we are expecting a definite success from our favorites, although the odds are small.


Man. City: Ederson – Walker, Stones, Laporte, Mendy – De Bruyne, Fernandinho – Mahrez, B. Silva, Sterling – Aguero

Huddersfield: Lossl – Kongolo, Zanka, Schindler – Hadergjonaj, Hogg, Billing, Mooy, Lowe – Pritchard – Mounie

PREDICTION: Over 3.5 goals @ 1.82
