Manchester City lead neighbours United 2-1 going into the Carling Cup Semi Final second leg but we reckon the home side will prevail at Old Trafford
Carlos Tevez did his talking on the field last week, scoring twice against his former club, but then had plenty to say off it as he expressed his delight at getting revenge over Manchester United.
However, with the Old Trafford leg still to play in the Carling Cup semi-final, Manchester City are not in the final just yet and indeed the Argentine striker may have spoken too soon because Sir Alex Ferguson’s men look cracking value at 21/20 with Totesport to turn things around and book a place at Wembley.
With United just 4/6 (bet365) to win on the night, backing them to qualify looks like the best bet, although they may have to do it the hard way because the clash could well finish 2-1 in their favour (15/2, 888Sport), which would result in extra-time.
Paddy Power make the hosts 9/2 prevail via a penalty shootout and on this occasion, Tevez could be eclipsed by his opposite number Wayne Rooney; who is 4/1 (William Hill) to follow up his four-goal haul against Hull by breaking the deadlock in this one.
In other Tevez specials, the City striker is 25/1 with Coral to be sent off.
The Argentine is 16/1 at the same firm to repeat his two goal heroics from the first leg, and 7/1 to be booked for a foul on United full back Gary Neville.
Coral also offer 4/1 that Neville is booked for a foul on Tevez, and 6/4 that the pair are seen shaking hands after the match.
