Burton vs Manchester City
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Wednesday, 23rd January 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Pirelli Stadium (Burton upon Trent).
Yes, we get it, Pep. You are one of the modern wonders of football. You don’t have to prove it week after week. After conquering Spain and Germany, the perfectionist is tidying up England, and boy! Has it been a sight to watch!
The first leg of this tie ended in a 9-0 scoreline, and in the name of humanity, I would like to request the bald genius to take it lightly this time. The Brewers have suffered enough.
The other semifinal cannot be more contrasting where Chelsea and the Spurs take on each other. The only goal came from a spot-kick by Harry Kane, in the first leg. Meanwhile, the Citizens were lining up one after the other to get their names on the scoresheet. Gabriel Jesus was the main wrecker, in particular, contributing to four of the total nine.

Burton vs Manchester City Prediction
It’s all up to the mighty Sky Blues and their innovative coach to decide how this match should turn out. Certain key players will be rested for sure in this tie, and that’s the only reason I think the aggregate score will not cross 20 and have no doubt that the first team of the Blues is more than capable of doing it.
Even with their bench players, the team has more than enough quality to school a third-division side at their mercy. Expect Guardiola and his boys to blast through the home defense and score at least four in total. There is no reasonable or rational chance for the visitors to not win both the halves. The last four matches alone saw the Citizens post a combined scoreline of 22-0.
Even against their League One opposition, Albion has conceded in their last five home games, and in 12 of their last 15. Lord help them against the blue juggernauts.
