Man City Battle Wolves In Premier League Asia Trophy Final
The Premier League Asia Trophy serves as a fun way to embed the English Premier League into the Asian culture, and that can only be a good thing. The Chinese, especially, are trying to work their way progressively up through the ranks of the international game, and projects like this should help with that. The final is set to be contested between Manchester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers, who are both coming off the back of seasons that can only be considered a resounding success – and we mean that in many different ways.
Pep Guardiola’s side were absolutely masterful last season, achieving a domestic treble and only missing out on European glory due to Tottenham Hotspur’s rise to prominence. As we look ahead to the new campaign, it really does feel like they’re in a wonderful position to go for the title once again, but of course, winning the Champions League will also be fresh on their minds. They’ll come into this game knowing that it’ll be a nice boost to win the trophy, but above all else, getting some minutes under their belt is what counts at this point with just a few weeks left until competitive football gets underway again.
While Wolves fans may be getting a little bit frustrated by their lack of transfer activity in the summer window, there are certainly plenty of reasons to still get excited as we look ahead to the brand new Premier League campaign. Their Europa League journey is set to begin in less than a week, they’ve got a whole load of exciting young players waiting to break out into the first team, and they’ve got one of the best managers in world football today. The stars are aligning at Molineux, and it’s exciting to see.
Manchester City vs Wolves Betting Prediction
This is going to be a really fun game, because from the perspective of ‘high quality football’, these are two of the best teams in the Premier League. As the champions Manchester City are going to be viewed as the clear favourites, but we aren’t so sure it’s going to be that easy. Wolves looked great against Newcastle and they seem to have their tails up, and as such, we can see them giving City a good game. In the end, though, Pep’s men will just be too strong for them as they capture the Premier League Asia Trophy.
