Can City Emulate United’s Treble 20 Years On?
Champions League Winner
Manchester City are now being backed to win a treble of their own, exactly 20 years on from Manchester United’s triumph against Bayern Munich in the Nou Camp completed a fortnight in which they lifted three major trophies.
Pep Guardiola’s side all but booked their spot in the EFL Cup final with a 9-0 drubbing of League One’s Burton Albion in the semi-final first leg on Wednesday night, to go alongside their 7-0 defeat of Rotherham in the FA Cup third round.
We’ve had money on Thursday morning for City to go on and win the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup at 28/1.
While a clean sweep of four trophies including the EFL Cup has been backed into 40/1 from 66/1.
The Premier League is the only tournament of the four that the Citizens are not the current favourites to win, with league leaders Liverpool shading the advantage at 4/5 to City’s 6/5.
