Match preview for Manchester City v Newcastle United on 30th March 2013 Easter weekend, plus betting odds.
Manchester City v Newcastle United
Etihad Stadium, Saturday, 30 March 2013, Kick-off: 15:00 GMT
With the title race now effectively over as conceded by Roberto Mancini, City are now playing for the automatic Champions League qualification place for next season. They are looking for their seventh win on the trot in games against Newcastle.
City have the best defence in the league this season (13 clean sheets & 26 goals conceded) whilst the Magpies have shocking away form. Everything points a Citizens win.
Stranger things have happened and a Newcastle win is priced at 12.00 over at bet365. Probably the safest bet is a home win.Prediction: Manchester City 2 Newcastle United 1 (Correct Score odds of 9.5)
