Manchester City vs Burton Albion
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Wednesday, 9th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester).
A second-string City side runs rampant against Rotherham in their last match-day. Seven goals went past the helpless opposition defense, and it typical Citizens’ manner, all seven came from different players. The defending champion of the Carabao Cup will be eagerly looking forward to this clash.
Burton has done their share of winning this season, notably against Middlesbrough, Aston Villa, Nottingham etc. But their luck seems to have run out against the Sky Blues
After Guardiola’s men took the foot off the gas in their league matches for a few weeks, and let Liverpool run with the lead, they emphatically came back into the title mix, by inflicting the Merseyside team with their first defeat in their Premier League season. Burton fans will surely be having sleepless nights as this match approaches.
The Citizens seem to be angry after falling from the top of the Premier League table and play with a vengeance against any team they are facing. Rotherham completely took the brunt of their ire last weekend, and this time around, Burton will likely be the prey.
Pep’s boys are the favorites to lift the Champions League trophy this season, and a second division side like the Brewers will not even be expected to record a draw. On top of all this, Albion is crippled with the away status.
The Blues will easily win this game. And in all likelihood, the home players will run riot over the visiting defense. Expect Manchester to win both the halves, and to score at least over 3.5 goals.
