Manchester United vs Manchester City Friendly Match Betting PT 3

Both Gabriel Jesus and Marcus Rashford can be backed at a 5/1 listing to grab the first goal of the contest and Rashford is an interesting selection here because you can assume that Lukaku’s strength and off the ball running ability is going to open up a lot of opportunities for a pacey hitman like Rashford to bag a goal early on in the match.


Obviously one of the most important parts of backing a first goalscorer wager is that the player actually winds up starting the match so you want to keep your wagers in your pocket until you get a look at the team sheets about an hour before the fixture actually kicks off.

Both Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are solid selections here and you have to assume that it’s Martial who has all the pressure on him right now. Formerly the world’s most expensive teenager, Martial made a big impression at Manchester United very quickly under Louis Van Gaal but had a very indifferent - and some would say frustrating season last year - where he failed to really make an impression.

This was especially true in important matches.

You’re looking at a price of around 13/2 for Martial to open the scoring against Manchester City but the price on Mkhitaryan is just a shade higher at 7/1 and that could very well be the right option here - a 1-0 result to Manchester United courtesy of Mkhitaryan wouldn’t really surprise anybody.

You’ll also find the likes of Jesse Lingaard at a listing of around 9/1 to grab the first goal and that’s not a bad wager since you can expect him to start in the midfield in a contest like this alongside Paul Pogba. The talented Kevin De Bruyne can be backed at a 10/1 listing and it’s also worth keeping your eyes on Paul Pogba himself - he can be backed at an 11/1 price.
