Burton Odds-On To Leak Another Three Or More In Second Leg
Burton Albion face a challenge to keep the score down again if the betting is to be believed ahead of their EFL Cup semi-final second leg against Manchester City.
Nigel Clough’s side were on the wrong end of a 9-0 drubbing in the first leg and all sorts of correct scores are being backed in the run up to Tuesday night’s home tie for the League One outfit.
We have cut the odds on a 4-0 Manchester City win into 9/1 from 11/1 as it has been on the most popular choices, making it a more popular selection than a Burton win by any score at 11/1.
The chances of Pep Guardiola’s side scoring three or more goals is a hot odds-on 8/15 and they are just 11/8 to break the four-goal barrier. There has even been a handful of bets at 100/1 that they hand Burton another 9-0 defeat. An unexpected Burton Albion clean sheet has been pushed out to 16/1 after taking little support at 14/1.
A League Cup Final showdown against Chelsea is the most likely outcome for the Citizens despite Maurizio Sarri’s men having a 1-0 deficit to overcome against Tottenham in their second leg on Thursday evening. The Blues are 20/21 to make the final, making them the slightest of favourites ahead of 5/6 Tottenham, who go into the tie with a list of notable absentees.
