This is it. The match that means everything to both teams. Manchester City against Manchester United. If you remember, the league game between both sides at Old Trafford last autumn was one of the highlights of the season. The deciding goal by Michael Owen. Fergie time.
There is simply too much riding on this game today that there will be no controversy. The match will be played at such a fever pitch that mistakes will undoubtedly happen, which means that I believe the referee is guaranteed to make a crucial mistake or two.
I’m not a big fan of making predictions, but I will predict that Sir Alex Ferguson is going to blow his lid at some point in this game. You’ll see the Ferguson of old getting red in the face. Something that we haven’t seen in a very long time. Unless, of course, the red half of Manchester takes a comfortable lead. But I don’t see that happening. I envision it being a close game but goals are going to be scored.
