On April 26, Etihad Stadium (Manchester) will host the match of the 33rd round of the English Premier League, in which Manchester City will compete with Arsenal. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.
The team spends an important part of the season. There was a return quarter-final match against Bayern in the Champions League a week ago. Still, there was an extremely modest intrigue after a home 3-0 success. As a result, Munich took the opportunity to achieve a 1-1 draw. Pep Guardiola’s wards moved to Wembley at the previous weekend. They played with Sheffield United in the 1/2 final battle of the FA Cup there. The team did its best in the match against “the Blades” and won with a 3-0 score. This time it will be a key fight for the 1st place in the Premier League. The misfires of “the Gunners” have dramatically reduced the distance to the daring contender for the title. It goes without saying that it would be highly desirable to win the following match.
The club, without any doubt, has added in the game in a pretty powerful way in the current season. Still, it was not possible to get rid of its “Achilles heel” – the team has got an unpleasant tradition of failing at the finish line. In 2022, Mikel Arteta’s wards inexplicably managed to lose the 4th place (and, as a result, a ticket to the Champions League) to Tottenham. It seemed that now “the Gunners” had overcome the higher mentioned “trouble”. April started with a solid, confident 4-1 score in the match against Leeds. Nevertheless, the leader of the Premier League stepped on the same rake several times after that. Zinchenko and company lost a 2-goal lead in the battle with Liverpool, and then repeated the same result with West Ham. Moreover, Southampton, being an outsider, was really close to defeat the team – it snatched a 3-3 draw, which, to tell the truth, cannot be included into the asset.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Guardiola has won all 7 previous matches against his former assistant, Arteta. Speaking about the current season, there was a 3-1 victory in London in February.
Bookmakers believe that “the Gunners” will not have a chance in the central match of the entire championship. We bet that Pep Guardiola will be able to beat his “student” Mikel Arteta in a head-to-head duel one more time (odd: 1.61).
