Manchester City vs Burton Albion Prediction 9 January 2019

Tournament: English League Cup
Location: Etihad Stadium
Match date: 09.01.2019 at 19:45

On January 9 2019 at 19:45 at the Etihad Stadium in the upcoming regular match of the English League Cup semifinal the local Manchester City will host their guests Burton Albion. There is almost no intrigue in this upcoming match. This is going to be the game between the best team of the country and the representatives of the League One.

Manchester City started the year 2019 really strong. First they outplayed their main rivals for the championship Liverpool 2:1 and after that they won against Rotherham in the FA Cup with the devastating 7:0 score. As for the League Cup, Guardiola’s side has already overcome three rounds where they won against Oxford United 3:0, Fulham 2:0 and Leicester in the penalty shooting.

As for Burton Albion, they started their way to the semifinal in summer, in fact. To meet the champions of England they kicked-off a few teams from the competition like Shrewsbury Town 2:1, Aston Villa 1:0, Burnley 2:1, Nottingham Forest 3:2 and Middlesbrough 1:0. Yet, in the League One they don’t really look well. Their victory against Rochdale with 4:0 score only let them rise to the ninth position in the standings.

The Citizens are considered to be the obvious favorites of the upcoming match as they have a much better squad and they are obviously much more skilled. Even if they rotate the squad, they will still be able to devastate their competitors and say their word making it to the final of the competition. All of the facts we have already mentioned make us think that the hosts will win and will do it with a solid score.
