On February 28, Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol) will host the 1/8 final match of the FA Cup, in which Bristol City will compete with Manchester City. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.

Bristol City

The team was not bad at the beginning of the previous century – it reached the final of the cup of the country and climbed to the 2nd place in the championship. Nowadays, to be the average of the Championship is its maximum. Last season, for example, brought only the 17th place there. Nigel Pearson’s wards have not particularly added in the game and are about at the same level – above the relegation zone, but below the so-called “equator”. However, it was possible to reach an unbeaten run in the winter. Moreover, the team had a success in the matches with Swansea and West Brom in the FA Cup – that resulted in the following match with the champion of the country. It goes without saying that this unique chance will provide the full house during the event.

Manchester City

The club seems to be almost ready to give up the inner arena. It is primarily interested in the Champions League. It traditionally went through the group stage without any problems. The team continued its way in the play-offs in the previous week – that was a battle against RB Leipzig in Germany, where, having opened the score, it pragmatically agreed with a 1-1 draw. At the same time, the season began for Pep Guardiola’s wards with a defeat in the Super Cup made by Liverpool. That was a kind of revenge, “the Merseysiders” were knocked out of the EFL Cup in December (then, the grandee sensationally lost to crisis Southampton). At the same time, the favourite has recently started some “swings” with Arsenal in the Premier League: it caught up with the Londoners by winning a head-to-head match, but lost the points immediately, allowing Nottingham Forest to get a 1-1 draw at the end of the match. After that, Bournemouth was defeated in the away match with a 4-1 score.

The statistics of head-to-head matches

The clubs met only in the cup format – that happened in 2007 and 2018. There were three matches – all of them became victorious for Manchester City.


Bookmakers do not expect problems for the grandee. But there is no sense to spend a lot of energy on a banal cup match. We bet on “total: under 3.5” (odd: 1.85).
