Just a week after a huge Premier League title showdown at the Etihad, Man City and Liverpool meet again in the FA Cup semi-final, so it’s time for a Manchester City v Liverpool FA Cup Betting Tips 16/04/2022. Between their Premier League fixture and this clash, City and Liverpool have both progressed to the Champions League semi-finals. As a result, the Citizens remain in the hunt for a treble this season, while Liverpool are still in with a chance of winning a historic quadruple. But, just one side can progress at Wembley this Saturday and neither side will want to give up their chances of additional silverware. Man City vs Liverpool kicks off at 3:30p.m on Saturday and the match will be shown on BBC One.
Man City reached the Champions League semi-final with a 0-0 draw at Atletico Madrid on Wednesday. The Citizens beat the Spanish champions 1-0 at home in the first leg to progress in the competition. The draw extended the Citizen’s unbeaten run to ten in all competitions. Similarly, Liverpool also got to the Champions League semi-finals in mid-week after a 3-3 draw at home against Benfica. Liverpool won 3-1 in the first leg to go through with a 6-3 aggregate win. The Reds are also unbeaten in their last seven in all competitions.
Liverpool has no injuries or suspensions ahead of the semi-final. City’s only absentee is Cole Palmer, who is doubtful with an ankle injury.
Matchwinner Bet Odds
Firstly, looking at the matchwinner odds for the Man City vs Liverpool fixture, there is no outright favourite. However, the bookies have given City a slight edge at 8/5, provided by Bet365, as the Citizens are unbeaten in 22 of their last 23 matches in all competitions. But a Liverpool win has similar odds, with Betfred offering 15/8. Given that the Reds have won 17 of their last 20 in all competitions, this could be a decent selection. Our tip for this FA Cup semi-final is to choose a draw. Both sides have drawn their last two and they have recorded stalemates in three of their last four meetings. As a result, choosing SBK’s 28/11 odds for another draw carries the best value this weekend.
Total Goals Betting Market
Again, if recent meetings are anything to go by, there could be added value in the total goals markets in the City vs Liverpool tie. There have been over 3.5 goals In the last three head to heads between City and Liverpool. In addition, Liverpool has seen over 3.5 goals in their last three in all competitions, including an over 5.5 total goals result in their 3-3 draw with Benfica. Due to this, there is good value on over 2.5 goals, at 3/4, provided by SBK. But our pick is to stick with another over 3.5 goals result, which Betfair will offer 15/8 for.
Anytime Goalscorer Betting Tips
In the anytime goalscorer market, there are some standout picks from the City and Liverpool ranks. For City, Kevin De Bruyne is an obvious choice as the playmaker has scored six in his last seven and SBK will offer 17/5 odds. But the Belgian may be rested this weekend after playing a succession of matches. As an alternative, we are backing Gabriel Jesus to score after he netted against Liverpool last weekend. Jesus would be a good outsider option with odds of 29/10, provided by Unibet. However, with Liverpool’s Sadio Mane rested in midweek, our goalscorer pick is to back the Senegalese forward. Mane netted the second equaliser in the 2-2 draw at City last weekend. Also, with two goals in his last two starts, there is good value on backing VBet‘s 13/5 odds for another Mane goal on Saturday.
