Description: A tough match on our hands as Man City will be welcoming Burnley to the Etihad Stadium for the Quarter Finals of the FA Cup. Pep Guardiola, City’s Manager, coached Kompany, Burnley’s Manager, before he became a coach. The match is scheduled for Saturday, 5:45 PM (UTC).
Manchester City have stamped itself as one of the best teams in the world, season after season. They are second on Opta power rankings, meaning they are the second-best team in the world, only behind Bayern. The Cityzens haven’t lost in nine games, winning the last five in a row.
Burnley, on the other hand, also have a very impressive record. They sit as runaway leaders in the Championship table, 13 points above second-place Sheffield United. The Clarets are unbeaten in 18 matches across all competitions! They are also unbeaten in their last nine away games. They have constantly proven why they are among the Top 8 teams in England.
Man City has no injury to worry about going into the game. Kompany, on the other hand, will be without Darko Churlinov, Josh Brownhill and Harwood-Bellis.
Burnley have lost just three matches out of 45 in the whole 2022/23 Season. Any insight into Saturday’s results will be quite tricky. However, we predict Over 2.5 goals with odds at 1.53 (-188 American; 53/100 Fractional).
Reason: Man City average 2.48 goals per game in the Premier League and are just returning from trashing Leipzig seven goals to nil. Burnley is not far behind, also. The team averages 2.00 goals per game in the Championship. They are both powerhouses, and we expect a mighty clash!
