Oxford Utd – Man City Match Prediction | 17-12-2019 14:45

Manchester City triumphed in the Carabao Cup final following a 3-0 victory over Arsenal in the final, but before making it to Wembley they had to come through the early rounds like any other side. This season their journey starts in the third round on Tuesday when they make the trip to the Kassam Stadium to face off against an Oxford United side who have been less than convincing so far this season.

Pep Guardiolas troops are likely to stick to their attacking style of play and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field. Anyhow, you should bear in mind that Guardiola is likely to mix the squad against Oxford United. The Kassam Stadium will host Tuesdays football match between Oxford United and Manchester City, who face each other in the 3rd round of the EFL Cup. Oxford United set up a meeting with the Citizens by beating the likes of Coventry City and Newport County, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Tuesdays football match. Manchester City did well to make amends for a shocking 2-1 loss to Olympique Lyon in the Champions League, with the team rolling over Cardiff City 5-0 and the visitors must be high on confidence ahead of the trip to Oxford United.

The defending champions have a hectic schedule though, so they may choose to rotate their squad as they concentrate on the more illustrious competitions. Making the trip to the Kassam Stadium is a Manchester City side who are most peoples picks to win the entire competition. However, even if they do decide to mix things up, their strength in depth means that they still go into this fixture as the major favourites.

They avoided being defeated in just two occasions and with five points on their account, Karl Robinsons side is two points away from the nearest safe spot. Home side is not enjoying their start in the League One this season as they are positioned in the relegation zone after being able to book only one victory in nine rounds.

A major cause for concern and a significant contributing factor in their troubles this term is their inability to keep the opposition at bay and they come into this match having conceded an average of just over two goals per game in the league. The hosts currently find themselves second from bottom in League One but despite their troubles in the third tier of English football, they will no doubt view this as a welcome distraction.

Instead, we think that the firepower of the defending champions, combined with the vulnerabilities the hosts have shown at the back so far this season, means that backing there to be over 3.5 goals scored looks to be the way to go in this fixture. Given that the visitors are so well fancied in this clash, there appears to be little value to be found in any variation of the win-draw-win market.
