The forecast for Manchester City – Leeds United. We will highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the teams and try to find out what the guests will be able to oppose the leader of the Premier League.
On April 10, Manchester City will face Leeds at the Etihad Stadium. Guardiola's players can no longer exert themselves in the championship, they have come too far away from their pursuers. So we are waiting for bold actions from Leeds, who have something to prove.
It's been a very long time since the guests played in the Premier League, which is why the Peacocks had a few face-to-face meetings against the Citizens. Since 2013, the clubs have played 2 matches. In the FA Cup, the Manchester grand did not notice the resistance of Leeds (4-0). But in the first round of the current draw of the Premier League, the teams showed equal football, dividing the points - 1:1.
Manchester City leads the Premier League with 74 points, 14 points ahead of their nearest pursuer. Even the defeat of the second team of the championship in the 27th round did not upset the "citizens". And that's right: this season, Guardiola's players have no equal. The "citizens" should concentrate on the LCH, where they will soon have a difficult trip to Dortmund. At home in the quarter-finals of the European Cup, Manchester City won with a minimum score of 2:1.
Leeds are approaching the match at the Etihad with a winless streak of 3 meetings. The Peacocks shared the points with Chelsea, and also won twice 2-1 at Fulham and Sheffield Wednesday. In Manchester on April 10, Bielsa's guys will not be easy, but given the nature of the guests, they can create a lot of problems for the leader of the championship.
