In a two-horse race, Cardiff City have been given a one in 80 chance by one bookmaker of winning away at Manchester City on Tuesday night. 

Neil Warnock’s men travel to the Etihad Stadium for their Premier League clash as the biggest outsiders in the history of the division. 

Bookmaker Paddy Power are offering odds of 80/1 for Cardiff, 18th in the league and five points from safety, to beat reigning champions City. 

Paddy Power confirmed to Sportsmail that these are the longest odds they have ever offered on a team to win a single Premier League fixture.

The City boss said: ‘Everybody is incredibly excited about what we are going to live for the next few weeks.

‘Say “wow, this is amazing” and live this opportunity to be there. Beat Cardiff to go top. Then Wembley to achieve a final I’ve never played, the oldest trophy ever. We have passed tough moments in the season and we are fortunate to be here.

‘When you see it (Liverpool’s late goal against Tottenham), you think “ah s***”. It is a challenge. Nobody said it would be easy. It’s a better challenge. I saw how well Arsenal have played with an incredible manager, and then (see) the incredible distance we have.’

Pep Guardiola’s men are unbeaten in their last six home league meetings with Cardiff as they look to regain lead over Liverpool in Premier League title race.
