Check out our match preview and betting predictions for tonight’s FA Cup semi-final between Arsenal and Manchester City.

Mikel Arteta will face his friend and mentor Pep Guardiola for a place in the FA Cup final, as Arsenal and Manchester City go head to head in the first semi-final this evening.

The Gunners are record winners of the oldest football tournament in the world with 13 trophies in their cabinet, their most recent one coming back in 2017.

Current FA Cup holders Manchester City, on the other hand, are chasing their 12th final in the competition which they’ve won six times in history.

What to bet on?

Winners – Arsenal

A 2-1 victory over Liverpool last Wednesday will surely lift Arsenal’s spirit before the FA Cup semi-final clash with Manchester City.

The Gunners have lost their last seven meetings with Man City in all competitions, by an aggregate score of 2-20. However, this might be the perfect moment for Arteta’s boys to put an end to this embarrassing streak.

The odds for this outcome go as high as 9,50 – which puts great betting value to the suggested bet.

Goals – Over 2,50

Goals seem inevitable in a football game between Arsenal and Manchester City.

Ten of the last 12 meetings between these sides saw more than 2,50 goals, including the most recent three in a row.

They faced each other on the return of top-flight English football back in June and the game ended in 3-0 victory in favor of Pep Guardiola’s side, which was the same result as in the reverse fixture back in mid-December.

Goalscorer – Alexandre Lacazette

Alexandre Lacazette found his best form in the past few weeks, netting in three of his last four outings in the Premier League.

Oddschecker offer valuable odds for Lacazette to find the net this evening and we certainly recommend you to at least consider this bet.
