Expect goals at the Etihad

Pep Guardiola

Tonight sees the second EFL Cup semi-final first-leg as Manchester City welcome Burton Albion.

Over 4.5 goals @ 23/20

The Citizens found life tough at this stage of the competition last term, edging past Championship side Bristol City and their visitors from League One will be targeting a similar performance to the Robins.

Burton crushed Rochdale 4-0 at the weekend and will head to the Etihad following a four-game unbeaten run.

Pep Guardiola is likely to select a strong team for this game and will expect another top performance after thrashing Rotherham 7-0 in the FA Cup at the weekend.

A repeat of that scoreline may attract the more positive amongst us at 18/1 but I am going big on the goal front and can easily see over 4.5 goals.

Getafe to win to zero @ 8/5

Our second pick comes from tonight’s Copa del Rey action and Getafe look far too good for Real Valladolid on home turf.

Los Azulones lost 2-1 at home to Barcelona at the weekend but had won their three most recent outings at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez before that and are good value for their seventh-place position in La Liga.

In contrast, tonight’s opponents started the season well, but one win in nine has seen them drop to 15th.

The pair drew 0-0 back in August but Getafe have improved greatly since then and can take a lead into next week’s second meeting in Aragon.
