The FA Cup is the most famous domestic club competition in the world and today, Manchester City and Wigan Athletic will be looking to get their hands on the trophy as the two teams lock horns in the final at Wembley Stadium.
How do I pick up my free £25 FA Cup bet?
The Citizens have been able to focus on this encounter for some time now as they have been all-but guaranteed second place in the Premier League for a while now, whereas the Latics come into this one in a low as they are odds-on for relegation and in truth, could do without one of the biggest games in their history.
Wigan are sure to give it their all here though and a victory would give them a massive confidence boost and the belief they can win their final two matches in the top flight and beat the drop.
At the moment, you can back Roberto Martinez’s men 9/2 to lift the trophy on Saturday evening, but even if they did come out on top, there wouldn’t be too much time for celebration as they have a massive game against Arsenal on Tuesday evening.
Shaun Maloney is a man that Wigan rely on a lot to come up with something special in the final third and you feel as though if the underdogs are to cause a bit of a cup upset, then he needs to be on top of his game.
Maloney can play that defence splitting pass and always lethal from free-kicks, so backing him to score the first goal at 16/1 might prove to be decent value.
As for Manchester City, their fans come to Wembley expecting to lift the trophy as they take on a Wigan side that are 40 points behind them in the league.
Also, the Citizens have done the double over their opponents in the Premier League this campaign, so should be confident they can come out on top this weekend.
Wigan have a decent playmaker in Maloney, but City have one of the best around in David Silva and after being rested last time out, the Spaniard could come back into the side for the FA Cup final.
Silva is always a threat when on the ball in and around the 18 yard box and he is being offered at 9/4 to provide an assist in the match.
Roberto Mancini has come under a bit of pressure at the Etihad Stadium, but if he can get his hands on the FA Cup this weekend, the fans are sure to be singing his name and he isn’t likely to be going anywhere in the summer.
There is no doubt that this encounter is in Manchester City’s hands as if they perform at their best, they will come out on top. At the moment, 1/5 are the odds you can get on them lifting the trophy.
The FA Cup final is always a superb spectacle and this is sure to be no exception. Expect an electric atmosphere and an entertaining encounter from 5.15pm
