Manchester City Match Betting News

Manchester City have been very disappointing this season as they have finished the campaign empty handed.

Despite the poor season, the City hierarchy seem to be keeping faith in manager Manuel Pellegrini but the Chilean will find himself under intense scrutiny from day one of the upcoming Premier League campaign.

As for now, City have already secured 2nd place in the table and the club will surely be looking to end the campaign on a high note by producing a good display for the fans when they welcome Southampton to the Etihad on the final day of the season.

Apart from the injured Samir Nasri, Manchester City will have their full complement of players to select from for the clash.

Southampton Match Betting News

Despite the mass summer exodus, Southampton have defied the odds by enjoying a fantastic campaign under the tutelage of the brilliant Ronald Koeman. Southampton missed out on Champions League football narrowly this term and look in good shape to mount a challenge for a top four finish next season.

However, in order to keep the European dream alive next year – the Saints need to avoid a repeat of the summer transfer saga which took place at the start of this season.

The final game for Southampton is against Manchester City and a good result could mean that the Saints can cap off a wonderful campaign with a finish in the Europa League. Fraser Forster, Dusan Tadic, Jay Rodriguez and Morgan Schneiderlin have been ruled out of the clash due to injuries.

Manchester City vs Southampton Match Prediction

The match does not mean much for either side in terms of the league table but no team likes to lose and one can be sure that both sides will be looking to claim a good result on the day.

City have to be classed as the favourites ahead of the clash and while it will not be straightforward, Pellegrini’s men should be able to win.
