Manchester City are already out of Champions League, the title is now 12 points away from them, and the only tournament left for them is FA Cup. The team would most likely want to get this cup, otherwise they will be without a trophy this season. So far City hasn’t conceded a goal in round 3, beating Watford with 3-0 and in round 4, beating Stoke City with 1-0. The last time, City met Leeds was some 9 years ago, and they lost that match with 1-2. City’s most recent victory over Leeds dates 2003, a win with 2-1 as well. In between the FA Cup rounds, Manchester City recorded 2 ties and a loss. The odds for victory here @ 1.16 hold no value at all, even the Asian Handicap Manchester City -1.5 @ 1.36 isn’t that much profitable. However if you insist on betting on this match you have the options to either go for the 2 goal margin victory or wait for an in-Play bet, and hope City will not score early in the game, so those odds raise.

Leeds comes in this game as the 11th in the Championship table, 8 points away from the play-off spots for Premier League. The team got so far in the FA Cup after they managed to eliminated Birmingham and notice: Tottenham. However the victory over the Spurs was at home, and this game will be on Etihad, where their last victory over Manchester City was some 9 years ago. Due to the difference of budgets, players and the leagues both teams play in, Leeds are priced as the total underdog here with odds @ 15.00 for the away victory and the draw @ 7.00. While the team managed to eliminated one Premier League team already and has a good record against City with games mostly from 2003 and below (W5-D4-L3), Manchester City have nothing left to compete for and will most likely go full throttle here.
As usual, when it comes to Manchester City and their selection of super stars going against a team from a lower division, we all expect a victory. Leeds already knocked-out Tottenham but this time they have to go away from home, against an even better Premier League team. The odds for City are low @ 1.16 and even the handicap -1.5 @ 1.36 isn’t that valuable. However if you are going to bet on this match might as well take the Man City -1.5 @ 1.36.
The Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.36 is also a popular option, as many expect City to score at least 3 here.
