Manchester United v Manchester City – Carling Cup Semifinal

Manchester United v Manchester City
Carling Cup Semifinal 2nd Leg
Old Trafford
Wednesday 27 January 2010
Kickoff: 20:00 GMT

There hasn’t been a day pass since the first leg when repercussions from the game haven’t been in the news.

It seems every man and his dog has opinion on who’s right and who’s wrong but the most important thing is the final result and that’s going to be decided on Wednesday night at Old Trafford.

Paddy Power make Man Utd favourites to win the match inside 90 minutes at 4/6 and City are 9/2 to win the second leg as well. However the bookie makes Man City just favourite to make it to The Carling Cup final at 8/11.

The feeling is that for all City’s defensive frailties they do look like scoring in every game and if they can get a couple of away goals then it puts the pressure on United.

Not only do Paddy Power give you £20 free when you sign up and place your first bet of £10 but on Wednesday there is also a chance for you to get the money from your losing bet returned. Because if Carlos Tevez scores the last goal in the match Paddy Power will refund all losing 1st/last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast bets on the match.

Both teams have strikers playing at the top of their game right now, Wayne Rooney bagged four goals last weekend and is integral to United’s chances of winning anything this season. And then there is Carlos Tevez, former United player now at City and certain of a hot reception on Wednesday night, he’s 7/1 to score the first goal in the second leg.

The market leader is Wayne Rooney at 4/1 and he’s also 25/1 to score a hat-trick against City. All the betting will be on these two players and remember if Tevez scores last you get your losing stakes back.

7/1 Tevez
8/1 Adebayor
8/1 Giggs
10/1 Bellamy

If this game is to follow the form of both these sides then there should be plenty of goals for both teams. Last weekend United and City both scored four; it’s 15/2 United do that again and a massive 40/1 City do this on Wednesday night.
