Brighton and Hove Albion vs Manchester CityEnglish Premier League, KO: 20:00 May 24, 2023, AMEX Stadium
FOR once the story may not be about champions Manchester City as they take a midweek trip to the south coast to face a Brighton side making their own history.
Pep Guardiola's men took the first step towards the treble without kicking a ball as Arsenal wilted at Nottingham Forest and they celebrated by easing past Chelsea with a much-changed line-up.
It would take a brave punter who thinks either Inter Milan or Manchester United will stop them from clinching the iconic treble, but surely with two away games to come in the league, Guardiola will use the chance to rest his big guns before the two showdowns.
They will face a motivated Brighton on Wednesday who created their own marker in the history books this weekend by clinching a European place for the first time after a brilliant season.
Roberto de Zerbi's Seagulls sealed a place in at least the Europa Conference League with a 3-1 win over Southampton and they need a point from two games to make sure of sixth place and a spot in the Europa League next season.
And they will be going all out to get it before they travel for a tricky last game at Aston Villa.
How the bookies view it
For once, Manchester City are at a backable price at 4/5 with 10bet.
Recent head to heads
City won 3-1 at the Etihad when the teams met back in October and last season, City won both games home and away by three goals.
Players to watch
Evan Ferguson has been an absolute revelation this season and the 18-year-old is a top talent. The Irish kid's double at the weekend was his 12th goal of an impressive campaign and he is 5/2 to score anytime with UniBet.
Manchester City could again turn to another youngster Cole Palmer who started against Chelsea also. He is 19/4 to score anytime also with UniBet.
Anything else catch the eye?
Brighton are enjoying a great season and it's worth opposing City on the double chance market for Brighton to get at least the point they need to get into the Europa League.
Even with the juggernaut that is City, they wouldn't be human if they weren't thinking of the two finals to come. It's not as if they are going for an unbeaten record in the league or anything.
It should be a much-changed visiting team too and Brighton are good enough anyway to get something here at 15/13 with 10Bet.
