The English Premier League season finally resumes as well. Wednesday’s programme will be particularly busy thanks to this tournament. Including that very day, the champion and leader, Manchester City, will play. He is joined by the most interesting of the division’s newcomers, Brentford. Will Thomas Franc come up with something to baffle Guardiola? Our website has a prediction for the match on 9 February 2022. Full statistics and current odds for the match can be found at 1xbet.
Manchester City fly to another league title
The Citizens, it seems, will not be able to lose English football gold. First of all, the main rivals looked like they were playing a giveaway, losing points with unenviable regularity. And, most importantly, the men themselves were showing very confident football and truly championship statistics. They, however, before the break for the national team games, lost points in a 1-1 draw with Southampton. But the Saints just bounced back, snapping their winning streak of eight straight in all competitions and 12 in the APL. There was a reason they did not reinforce the squad during the winter window. Yes, they bought Julian Alvarez, but the Argentinian striker will not arrive until the summer… Fulham were confidently beaten 4-1 in the cup, with a double and an assist from Marez. Zinchenko finally made an appearance as well, coming on as a 67th minute substitute…
Brentford need to shake things up – relax early
The Bees are actually making their Premier League debut. And the first round has gone off to a flying start, especially the opening rounds. Thomas Franco’s side made excellent use of underestimation by their opponents, scoring a number of points. That allows us to feel quite comfortable now. Although there were a lot of drubbing at the end of December and January: 6 out of 7 APL games were lost, including 4 in a row. During the winter window, there was a curious, strong, but also quite logical reinforcement, given the Danish direction of their selection: this is where Christian Eriksen makes a restart of his football career. But he needs to get in shape. In the meantime, they also failed to compete with Everton in the cup, losing resoundingly, 1-4.
Just before the new year, on 29 December, the clubs played their first encounter in their history. Then, Foden’s only goal earned Manchester City a victory at the Premier League debutant.
Brentford don’t look like a team that can cause City problems at the moment – but they can score. Expect a bright match and “more than 3.5 goals” (odds – 1.99).
