Manchester United vs Manchester City: Match preview
This season, United surprised City at the Etihad. Rashford and Martial’s goals were decisive in the 2-1 league duel. Even otherwise United is great in derby trials this season. Still, this is a City’s competition.
Manchester United team news:
Manchester United have won this Cup five times in their history and are in the third place in the list of trophy teams in this competition. It was the last time in the Cup that United had celebrated in the 2016/17 season. Since then he made it to the semifinals in the current season and the ultimate goal is, of course, the final victory.
The motive and ambition are greater because the opponent is a big city rival and the first duel is played this Tuesday at Old Trafford. This season the two Manchester clubs have already met in the Premier League and United then surprised City, a realistically better squad and a favorite before the start of the duel. But United still celebrated at the Etihad 2-1 with goals from Rashford and Martial.
This Tuesday’s match United expects with a mini-series of two non-win matches. He lost the league opener to Arsenal (0-2) and then went 0-0 to Wolverhampton in the FA Cup. However, we have to point out this time that Manchester United have been great in derby matches throughout the season. Especially in their own stadium.
In addition to victory against City, United players beat Chelsea, Leicester and Tottenham at home. By the way, this season United have defeated Chelsea away in this competition.
Probable lineup: Romero, Wan Bissaka, Lindelof, Jones, Williams, Fred, Matić, Lingard, Greenwood, Rashford, Martial.
Manchester City team news:
Manchester City in recent seasons has proven to be a great team for this type of competition, although City have been untouchable in every sense on the Island in recent years.
But City won both the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup last season. Two seasons ago he was the best in the Carabao Cup (3-0 against Arsenal in the final), and has a total of six title winners in history, in this competition.
City’s reaction following a defeat in the Manchester derby was such that it won the next four games. Then came a clumsy defeat at Wolverhampton by 2-3 (though leading 2-0), and the reaction thereafter was a new positive streak of three wins, all at home.
City has, in total, dominated the last seasons against United. For example, he last lost a championship match at Old Trafford in 2015. He then drew 0-0 and then won the last three games at this stadium.
Probable lineup: Bravo, Cancelo, Garcia, Fernandinho, Zinčenko, Rodri, De Bruyne, Foden, B. Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Sterling.
This is truly a match where everything is possible. Still, we believe that both teams will be cautious. That is why we predict that there will be not so many goals. One or two the most.
