Cheltenham Town vs Manchester City Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

Phil Foden Manchester City 2020-21

Manchester City are looking to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup for the sixth season in a row when they travel to League Two Cheltenham Town on Saturday evening.

Man City have won their last seven FA Cup ties against lower-league opposition and bet365 make them just 1/10 (1.10) favourites to extend that run here.

Cheltenham have only ever reached the fifth round once before in their history, back in the 2001-02 season, and are 16/1 (17.0) outsiders to stun the six-time champions at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

The hosts’ last five fixtures have all finished level after 90 minutes and another stalemate is available at 10/1 (11.0).

Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez, and Rodri all played in the third round and could feature here. ZackSteffen should step in for Ederson, but Kevin De Bruyne, Aymeric Laporte, Nathan Ake, Kyle Walker and Sergio Aguero are allout.

Goalkeeper Scott Flinders remains out for the Robins, but Chris Hussey returned against Newport last time out and could be involved.

This fixture could scarcely come at a worse time for Cheltenham, with the respective form of both sides in stark contrast to one another.

Indeed, the Robins have not won any of their last nine fixtures inside normal time, scoring only four times and managing only two clean sheets.

City, meanwhile, hit form just before Christmas and have won their last nine games in all competitions, scoring 22 times and conceding only twice - keeping an incredible seven clean sheets in the process.

Man City have outscored lower-league opposition 26-4 in their last seven FA Cup fixtures combined against them, and should have little trouble running up the scoreline against a struggling Cheltenham side.

Combine that with the likelihood that Guardiola willplay a strong side, bet365’s quote of 2.675 on the visitors to win with a -3.0, -3.50 Asian handicap looks a strong selection for this FA Cup clash.

The bet will pay out in full if City win by four clear goals, whilst victory by exactly three goals will see half the stake classed as a winner and the other half returned.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
