City are 4/11 favourites with Paddy Power to record their second FA Cup win in three years when they face Wigan at Wembley on Saturday (5.15pm).
Roberto Mancini’s side know they can make it three major trophies in three years against a side they’ve haven’t lost to in the last nine Barclays Premier League games and the manager is keen they grasp the opportunity with both hands.
“Saturday is a big, big day for the club - it's massive and everyone realises that,” he said.
City have scored 15 goals and conceded just once in those nine league games won the Barclays Premier League games this season 1-0 at the Etihad and 2-0 at the DW Stadium.
The Blues are 13/2 to win 1-0 and 11/2 to win 2-0 in Paddy Power’s betting while City to score exactly two goals is 9/4 in the number of team goals betting.
Wigan are making their first appearance in a Wembley final and they could look to stifle City’s attacking style early on and play themselves into the game and under 2.5 goals is trading at 5/4 chance while City to win and one or two total goals in the game is 11/4.
With City’s strikers all in good form, the manager has a decision to make as Argentine compatriots Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez have been banging in the goals recently, but Edin Dzeko put himself in the frame with his 35th-minute strike against West Brom on Tuesday night.
The Bosnian striker is 9/2 to score City’s first on Saturday while Dzeko to score and the Blues to win 1-0 is 22/1 in Paddy Power’s Scorecast betting.
Aguero scored the decisive second goal in the 2-1 semi-final win over Chelsea and scored a hat-trick against Wigan in the 2011/12 season and is 4/5 to score at anytime over the 90 minutes.
The Argentina international is also 4/5 to score at anytime over the 90 minutes play or 7/2 to be the game’s last goalscorer and if Aguero scores the last goal of the match, Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score & Scorecast singles on the game.
City’s defensive qualities has been the bedrock of the cup run and conceded their first goal in the semi-final win over Rafa Benitez’s side and City are 5/4 to win to nil against Wigan.
