Manchester City and Manchester United: A clean sweep of trophies on the cards?

Manchester City and Manchester United fans undoubtedly have plenty to look forward to during the remainder of the 2022/23 campaign.

With the Carabao Cup already in United’s grasp, the two clubs could go on to complete a clean sweep of major trophies this season.

According to the latest data from FiveThirtyEight, City and United are expected to emerge victorious in their respective European competitions.

City’s reward for demolishing RB Leipzig in the last-16 of the Champions League is a tough quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich.

Although the Bundesliga giants eased past Paris Saint-Germain in the previous round, City are top of the index with a 28 percent chance of lifting the prestigious trophy.

The winners of the Man City vs Bayern clash will face either Real Madrid or Chelsea in the semi-finals.

Napoli are rated as Man City’s most likely opposition in the final, having been handed a winnable-looking last-eight tie against AC Milan.

The winners of that match-up will face either Benfica or Inter Milan in the last four.

The draw for the Europa League has paired Manchester United with Sevilla in the quarter-finals. The winners play either Juventus or Sporting Lisbon in the last four.

Erik ten Hag’s side are given a 25% chance of winning the final, with Bayer Leverkusen tipped to be their most likely opposition.

While winning the Champions League and Europa League would be an excellent way for the Manchester clubs to end the season, they also have other targets in their sights.

Man City are given a 47% chance of becoming Premier League winners for the third successive time, although they may find it tough to overhaul title rivals Arsenal.

The Gunners are given a 52% chance of holding on to top spot and will fancy their chances given they currently hold a five-point lead.

Man City and Man United also remain in the hunt for the FA Cup and are fancied to at least reach the semi-finals after being handed home draws in the last eight.

While there may be plenty of twists and turns to come, sweeping the board is a distinct possibility for the Manchester pair and would leave their rivals pondering where they went wrong.
