Man City v Man Utd, Community Shield, Wembley, Sunday, 2.30pm
IT'S more than a friendly – but not much more.
Man Utd v Man City is usually a fiercely-fought derby but the Community Shield meeting at Wembley might not be much more than an exhibition.
The traditional curtain-raiser to the Premier League season is staged at Wembley on Sunday and both Lancashire bosses admit it's all about fine-tuning ahead of next weekend.
United will be without star striker Javier Hernandez while City will be minus Carlos Tevez although new hitman Sergio Aguero is likely to be on the bench.
It's a tough one to pick a winner and the potential for a draw can't be ignored. That pays a biggest 23-10 with the likes of Chandler while both sides are 9-2 with Paddy Power to win on penalties.
United are a best 7-5 with William Hill to win in 90 minutes with City 9-4 at Chandler.
Best bet could be on a low scorer and under 2.5 goals is 8-11 with Skybet. It could be a cagey start so look at the first goal coming after 31 minutes (23-20, William Hill).
- Under 2.5 goals (8-11, Skybet)
- First goal after 31 minutes (23-20, William Hill)
