Manchester City v Wigan Athletic Football Match – 17.04.2013 – Premier League Preview, Prediction, Squad
Manchester City v Wigan Athletic Football Match – 17.04.2013 at Etihad Stadium (Manchester) for a Premier League match. A. Taylor will be the match referee.
Manchester City Football Club has been quite good this year, as they have a good chance to win the F.A Cup now after beating Chelsea. It is very unlikely that they will win back to back Premier League titles, as they are 15 points behind leaders Manchester United but they will definately be looking to close the gap and will be back stronger next season, especially with the players they have got right now, they have arguably one of the best squads in the Premier League right now. In their last 5 matches they have won 4 of them and losing 1 against Everton with a 2-0 scoreline playing away. Their recent match was against Manchester United and beat them 1-2 playing away.
Wigan Athletic Football Team has had a really poor season in the Premier League, however they are in the finals of the F.A. Cup defeating Millwall at Wembley. Last season they came in 15th position in the EPL just above relegation zone but this season is slightly different, as they are now looking to fight relegation. They currently sit in 18th position with 31 points and there are 3 teams who are on 34 points just sitting above them. In their last 5 matches, they have won 3 times, lost once and drew once. Their recent match was a 1-1 draw against Queens Park Rangers, who is almost guaranteed to get relegated. This match will be very unlikely for them to win, as they are playing against a strong side playing away, however they could still get a point if they can manage a draw.
I think Manchester City will just manage a win in this match, as their home form has usually been quite good and they will be looking to remain in the top 4 positions to qualify for next seasons Champions League.
Match Prediction: Manchester City Win.
