Last season Bournemouth could not stand the pressure of the top division of England and left the Premier League from 18-th place. For 38 rounds the cherries have won nine wins and 34 points, which brought 18-th place. Until the saving 17-th place was only one point short.
In the first round of the Championship the "bosque" defeated Blackburn (3:2), then played the world with "Middlesbrough" (1:1). At the first stage of the Cup Jason Tyndall's charges beat Crystal Palace in a penalty shootout (1:0), as we predicted.
Bournemouth left the Premier League in order to return, but for this they have to go through a serious tournament distance. In today's match, which will surely be the last in the League Cup, the Cherries will receive an invaluable lesson in their skills from the best team not only in England, but in the world.
Most likely, guests will not be able to keep Guardiola's squad, which will not spoil the statistics of the personal lunch fights, on which we propose to play a bet.
Our prediction is that Manchester City will win with a handicap (-1) and we bet on it using the 1xBet BC line with the odds of 1.81
