Our football match prediction:
Manchester City will be aiming to build on a 3-1 win over Hull City when they face Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium on Matchday 33. The Citizens are eager to finish the season in top four and coach Pep Guardiola is likely to field the best possible side against Claude Puel’s troops. Man City have already suffered elimination in the Champions League group stages, meaning that they will be fully focused on the national championship in the remainder of the season. The Saints, on the other hand, head into Saturday’s football match following back-to-back victories over Crystal Palace and WBA, but beating the star-studded Citizens is easier said than done. Kun Aguero extended his goal-scoring run against Hull City and all eyes will be on the Argentine striker when the two teams face each other at St. Mary’s. Pep Guardiola’s team are eyeing their 11th away win of the season and we predict that the visitors will prove their worth in Saturday’s clash.
Highlighted Player (Steven Davis):
Born in Ballymena on 1 January 1985, Steven Davis is probably the most famous Northern Irish footballer of the 21st century, and he was one of team’s youngest ever captains, having been awarded the armband just over a year after making his debut for the national team. The combative midfielder has spent his entire career up to date in the UK, enjoying successful spells with Aston Villa, Fulham, Rangers and Southampton, while representing the country of his birth at various youth levels before getting a chance to shine at the biggest stage. Davis soon established himself as a leader of the Northern Ireland football team, missing just a handful of competitive fixtures since making his debut in 2005. The central midfielder scored 2 goals to help the national team finally secure their place at a major tournament, with an impressive Euro 2016 qualifying campaign likely to remain fresh in the minds of both the players and fans alike in years to come.
Highlighted Team (Manchester City):
Manchester City are the lest famous of the two major clubs based in Manchester. The club was founded in 1880, but they have been struggling in the English Premier League in the past. Nonetheless, ever since the club was purchased by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, the Citizens have been playing an important role in the English top flight. Manchester City won two Premier League trophies under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini (2011/2012 and 2013/2014), butboth managers eventually paid the price for some disappointing results. Man City play their home games at the Etihad Stadium and the stadium capacity is 55,097. Manchester United are regarded as Manchester City’s biggest rivals and the likes of Kun Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Uwe Rosler, Yaya Toure, Sylvain Distin are some of the most remarkable players that played for the Etihad Stadium outfit. Manchester City have won four Premier League titles and five FA Cup trophies and it has to be noted that they made it to the Champions League semis in the 2015/2016 season.
