The FA Cup will be in the spotlight again because of the upcoming semi-final schedule. Manchester City will be hosting Sheffield United at Wembley Stadium for the semi final.
Both clubs have a different style of playing the game and they both are the top clubs in their respective leagues. This year, Manchester City will be expecting success in the FA Cup considering the way they have played the recent games.
This is the 6th time Manchester City will be featured in a FA Cup semi-final game. If the Citizens lose the semi-final, they will become the first team in the history of the FA Cup to lose the fourth consecutive semi-final.
Sheffield United has an opportunity to reach the final game of the FA Cup for the first time in club history.
We are expecting Haaland to play an important role in the FA Cup semi final.
The betting tip is...
Earling Haaland to score a goal in the first half.
The Citizens will be happy to see themselves in the semi-final of the Champions League. They will be facing the European giants Real Madrid. Manchester City defeated Bayern Munich at an aggregate score of 1-4. Their last game at the Allianz Arena ended up in a draw.
However, the ferocious Sky Blues will look forward to reaching the finals of the FA Cup. An easy win over Sheffield United could boost their confidence for the remainder of the season, as Man City is still in contest for the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League titles.
Nathan Ake is in doubt to appear for the FA Cup fixture because of his hamstring injury.
Predicted Lineup: Ortega; Stones, Dias, Laporte; Lewis, Rodri; Mahrez, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Grealish; Haaland
Sheffield United is currently at the 2nd spot in the Championship Point Table with 82 points and 25 wins. The Blades will be waiting to become part of the Premier League for the next season. Sheffield United hosted Bristol City in their last fixture and scored a home win of 1-0. A win in their previous fixture will be a huge boost for the Blades to face Manchester City.
Enda Stevens, Rhys Norrington-Davies, Ben Osborn, Rhian Brewster and Jack O'Connell won’t be part of the game because of their respective injuries.
Predicted Lineup: Foderingham; Ahmedhodzic, Egan, Robinson; Baldock, Berge, Norwood, Fleck, Lowe; McBurnie, Ndiaye
The Citizens have scored a win in the previous games over the two FA Cup champions and this will be a major boost to their confidence. The Blades are underdogs but we predict a win for Manchester City by a large margin.
