This is the second leg of the English League Cup semi-final. To date, the score is 3:1 in favor of Man City, with the Citizens definitely being a favorite. However, historically, Manchester City won the Cup 6 times, and United – 5. This will be the battle of the strongest by any reckoning.
After defeating the Reds in the first match (1:3), Josep Guardiola’s team has every chance of succeeding in the second leg, now in their home stadium. Also, United will be playing without their top scorer, Marcus Rashford, who suffered a fracture in his back. In the Premier League, the Citizens have little chance of catching up with the leading Liverpool, but can still successfully defend their League Cup champion title.
However, any match between these teams is a derby, unique in its unpredictability. This was demonstrated on December 7, 2019, when Solskjær’s team managed to defeat the Citizens at their home Etihad (1:2) in the current Championship of England. In addition, the Reds are at risk of leaving the CL&EL zone for national championship winners, which is why they are forced to fight more violently for the League Cup. The situation is complicated by Rashford’s injury, this the defense vulnerability only partly covered by Martial (11 goals this season) and two juniors (Greenwood and Chong).
Man City looks stronger, but productive attacks should be expected from both sides. In 5 out of the 6 matches between the Manchester rivals, 3 or more goals were scored.
