Wolverhampton vs Manchester City Free Betting Tips 21/09/2020 – Premier League
Are the Wolves hitting the Sky Blues into the league start?
The English representatives were given a 30-day break from the UEFA final tournaments. After Wolves failed at Sevilla on August 11 and has already played twice in England since then, the Citizens are now playing their first competitive game since the unexpected 3-1 defeat by Olympique Lyon on August 15, 2020.
Although the Sky Blues don’t know where they stand, in the run-up to the game between Wolverhampton and Manchester City, the odds are clearly in the direction of Pep Guardiola’s team, as the odds comparison of the betting base, below, reveals.
At Wolverhampton against Manchester City, the pre-season must also be included in the prediction. Nuno Espírito Santo finally had the perfect antidote against the Citizens and was not only able to win the first leg at the Etihad Stadium 2-0 but also a 3-2 home win over City in the last comparison on December 27, 2019, at home in the Molineux Stadium to celebrate.
Nevertheless, a lot has happened with the Wolves after painful departures, which is why we tend to see the Sky Blues ahead. At Wolverhampton against Manchester City, we, therefore, combine the tip on the Double Chances X2 with “Both teams to score: Yes”, which ensures the best possible value.

Wolverhampton – stats & current form
Last season the Wolverhampton Wanderers fought their way through the qualifying rounds of the Europa League in seventh place, finally reached the group stage and in the last instance even made it into the final tournament in Germany.
There the men from the English West Midlands failed directly in the quarter-finals against the eventual overall winner Sevilla FC. This finally sealed that seventh place in the final table of the Premier League would not be enough for Europe this time.
Without Europe, there would be no arguments for the big names
That is three times bitter. On the one hand, the Wolves only slipped from sixth to seventh place because of a defeat on Matchday 38, and on the other hand, seventh would have been enough even if Chelsea had won the FA Cup final against Arsenal. Last, but not least, the Citizens’ UEFA ban would also have given Wanderers the ticket to Europe at the green table. Now Nuno Espírito Santo’s team has to accept the situation.
The problem with it: Many top performers could not be kept without Europe. Diogo Jota was drawn to Jürgen Klopp in Liverpool. Matt Doherty went to the Spurs. The Wanderers were able to lose exceptional talent Fábio Silva from FC Porto. It is extremely unlikely that the only 18-year-old Portuguese will be able to close the gaps in the squad right away in the Premier League.
EFL Cup after the first victory in the Premier League
After all, the Wolves celebrated a 2-0 away win over Sheffield United on matchday one. However, the end of the EFL Cup on Thursday evening against Stoke City showed that the team loses a lot of quality as soon as it rotates a bit.
Against this background, it is hardly surprising that in the run-up to the game between Wolverhampton and Manchester City, the odds of the bookmakers against the Wanderers speak.
The probable lineup of Wolverhampton:
↪️ Patricio – Saiss – Coady – Boly – Marcal – Traoré – Moutinho – Dendocnker – Neto – Jiménez – Podence
Last games from Wolverhampton:
⚽️ 09/17 2020 Wolverhampton 0 – 1 Stoke
⚽️ 09/14 2020 Sheffield United 0 – 2 Wolverhampton
Europa League Final Stage
⚽️ 08/11 2020 Wolverhampton 0 – 1 Sevilla
⚽️ 08/06 2020 Wolverhampton 1 – 0 Olympiacos Piraeus
⚽️ 07/26 2020 Chelsea London 2 – 0 Wolverhampton
Manchester City – stats & current form
Most recently, the star ensemble of Pep Guardiola suffered many a major defeat. In the Premier League, the championship was decided early on in favor of Liverpool FC. In the FA Cup, where their mission was actually to defend their title, the Sky Blues had a black day in the semi-finals against Arsenal FC.
And then there would be the 1: 3 in the Champions League quarter-finals against Olympique Lyon, one of the big outsiders in this tournament. An elimination that, according to the unanimous opinion of experts, was mainly due to Pep Guardiola, who experimented with the starting line-up and tactics in this important knockout game.
Again, no painful exits
At least City celebrated a victory in front of the CAS, the international sports court. There, contrary to expectations, the UEFA ban was lifted, after which the Sky Blues would not have been allowed to participate in the Champions League. And that is exactly what would ultimately have made it much more difficult on the transfer market.
In this way, however, with Nathan Aké, Ferran Torres, Pablo Moreno, Yan Couto and Issa Kaboré, predominantly young talents hunted by half of Europe could once again be directed to Manchester for a total of almost 100 million euros, while next to Leroy Sané only the aging Claudio Bravo and David Silva were willingly delivered.
Is City attacking again after the sobering 2019/20 season?
The club, which celebrated the championship with 32 wins from 38 games and a total of 98 points in 2018/19 and also won both English cup competitions, has lost nothing of its effectiveness. For the 2020/21 season, an attack is once again very likely after a sobering preseason.
After a short vacation after the final of the Champions League and a similarly short preparation period, the Sky Blues are now returning to the field where they do not yet know 100% where they stand. Accordingly, we think it is a little safer to play the tip on the double chance X2 at Wolverhampton against Manchester City.
The probable lineup of Manchester City:
↪️ Ederson – Mendy – Stones – Aké – Walker – Rodri – Gündogan – de Bruyne – Sterling – Silva – Jesus
Last matches from Manchester City:
