Manchester City – Liverpool: prediction for the FA Cup match
Manchester City has passed the previous rounds of the FA Cup without any problems. Southampton could have become a serious obstacle in the 1/4 finals, but the Citizens, in fact, did not leave the opponent the slightest chance, having won with a score of 4:1.
Earlier this week, Manchester City took on Atlético Madrid in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals. The meeting in Madrid ended in a draw of 0:0. This result was enough to qualify for the next round of the tournament. In the game with Atletico, Josep Guardiola’s team showed the most careful football. The plan worked perfectly. Manchester City has never lost in their previous ten matches (six wins and four draws). Find out more football predictions as we always choose the most exciting matches for your attention.
Liverpool, meanwhile, also reached the semi-finals of the Champions League. The only difference is that the Merseysiders’ return match with Benfica was not as tense as Man City’s game with Atletico. Moreover, with a score of 3:1 in the away game and the same advantage at home in the second half, Liverpool allowed themselves to relax. As a result, the match ended in a draw – 3:3.
But Jurgen Klopp is unlikely to lament over the lost victory. It was noticeable that Liverpool is playing with an eye on the upcoming match with Man City. As a result, Liverpool has had several changes to their starting line-up. In reserve, for example, were Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, the three main defenders. Liverpool also has a good run and has suffered only one defeat in their previous 23 matches. It was a failure against Inter in the UCL playoffs, which didn’t lead to problems as the Reds won the first game 2:0.

Last week Manchester City and Liverpool drew 2-2 in the Premier League. A fiery match with plenty of dangerous moments, but despite the result, it must be admitted that Guardiola’s team dominated. The Citizens really were better, while for Liverpool, a draw is partly a lucky result. By the way, Liverpool has never won in their previous five matches against Man City. That is, there is a certain trend – Klopp has great difficulty in matches against Guardiola.

In general, our opinion is that Manchester City will reach the FA Cup final. But with one caveat: if City has an optimal squad, which, unfortunately, there are doubts. In the game against Atletico, Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker were injured. From the outside, the damage to the Belgian did not look very serious, but the Englishman in the next match, most likely, should not be expected. So, we predict Manchester City will win with a handicap (0) for the odds of 1.90. To win more with huge bonuses, higher odds, and without risks – visit our betting sites rankings page.
