Sheffield Wednesday hosts Manchester City at the Hillsborough
Sheffield Wednesday hosts Manchester City at the Hillsborough in a game from the 5th round of the FA Cup. Our sure win prediction today for this fixture in Sheffield are about to follow.
Sheffield Wednesday are currently playing in the Championship, but they are 12th in the standings and they are not really involved in the race for a Premier League promotion. In the FA Cup they made a good performance though reaching the 1/8-finals.
In the previous round of the FA Cup Sheffield Wednesday visited Queens Park Rangers in the capital and went home with a 2-1 win. Morgan Fox and Sam Winnall scored for the visitors. Wednesday already eliminated one Premier League from the FA Cup this season – they did the job against Brighton & Hove Albion at the American Express.
Sheffield Wednesday have won the FA Cup three times in their history, but the last time was in 1935.
Manchester City are the current holders of the FA Cup. The Cityzens won the Carabao Cup again last week and the FA Cup is another goal for them to chase, especially when they are already out of the race for the Premier League.
Right now Pep Guardiola’s team is in a run of four consecutive wins in all competitions, including beating Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu in the Champions League. If we forget about their failure in the Premier League this season, Man City are in a really good place at the moment.
Aymeric Laporte got injured again and this is Guardiola’s biggest problem at the moment. The Frenchman is the club’s best defender, so him missing is not very good for City’s ambitions. Especially when Guardiola do not have enough depth in defense at the moment.
That’s our sure win prediction today for the FA Cup game from the 5th round between Sheffield Wednesday and Manchester City on Wednesday night. Will City go through? We shall see.
