Liverpool vs Manchester City Prediction & Betting tips
On Saturday at 20:00, in the FA Community Shield, Liverpool and Manchester City will face each other, this being the match that will open the football season in England. The two rivals met three times last season and were in direct battle until the last stage for the title of Premier League champion, but also for other trophies such as the FA Cup or the UEFA Champions League. In the two championship matches, eight goals were scored and both ended in a draw with the same score of 2-2. The third confrontation took place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup where Liverpool won 3-2.
Liverpool finished in 2nd place last season in the Premier League, but had a busy season helping in three finals, FA Cup, EFL Cup and UEFA Champions League, managing to win the first two. Jurgen Klopp will continue this season at Anfield Road and will reach his 8th consecutive season at Liverpool. This summer, Liverpool played four matches, scoring two victories and two defeats. In terms of transfers, Liverpool was not very active this summer, in terms of departures, the most important player being Sadio Mane, who arrived at Bayern Munich, and in terms of arrivals, we mention Darwin Núñez from Benfica.
On the other hand, Manchester City also had a good season, managing to win the Premier League title, for the 4th time in the last five seasons. Guardiola’s students remain disappointed that they did not play in the UEFA Champions League final, where they were eliminated in the semifinals by Real Madrid, the winning team. Josep Guardiola will also reach the 7th consecutive season on the Manchester City bench. Unlike Liverpool, Manchester City was active on the transfer market both in terms of selling and buying players. Manchester City sold Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal, while Raheem Sterling arrived at Chelsea, instead they bought Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, this being one of the most important transfers of the summer and defender Kalvin Phillips of Leeds.
