The first Manchester derby of the season takes place on Saturday evening when United and City meet at Old Trafford.
However, City will no doubt be in confident spirits after taking maximum points in their last two domestic games whilst also coming top of their Champions League group.
Ahead of the fixture, Goal has used bet365’s Bet Builder tool to come up with a 75/1 (76.0) longshot play, combining multiple selections from the same match.
The Bet Builder consists of: Bruno Fernandes and Kevin De Bruyne to score, Rodri and Fred to be booked.
Fernandes is already United’s top scorer this season with seven goals – three of which have come from the penalty spot – and is in excellent form with five strikes in his last six appearances for the Red Devils.
There is every chance that he nets from the spot once again on Saturday, given thatfour of the 11 goals that City have conceded this season have come by virtue of a penalty.
Similarly, United have also conceded four penalties this season and, with both his goals being from the spot, De Bruyne will be hopeful he can add to that pair.
The mercurial Belgian is a danger from all over the pitch, with no player scoring more times from outside the area since the start of last season than his five strikes and only Fernandes able to match his total tally of 15 goals in that timeframe.
It would not be a derby without a host of bookings, with the last five Manchester derbies each seeing four or more cards.
Rather impressively, Rodri has been shown a yellow in the last three meetings between these teams and, with two cautions already this season, it seems appropriate to back him to pick up another card on Saturday.
Also leading his team in cautions received this season is Fred, who has amassed three so far in just six starts, and has also been booked in two of the last three Manchester derbies so is included in this 75/1 (76.0) bet.
Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
