Manchester City are keen on continuing their recent positive momentum going as they face Burton Albion in Carabao Cup.
Man City Looking to End the Tie at Home
Playing the first leg of that semifinal tie at home, Man City will be looking to take full advantage of that situation and try to end things right away.
Knowing that their opponent have been causing several upset to get into where they are, Pep Guardiola’s side won’t be letting similar outcome happens to them.
Although Guardiola will once again rotate his squad, the Spaniard is still going to put out a relatively strong squad on paper.
Facing a League One outfit, there’s definitely a sense of pressure for the home team, but with their recent good form, it looks like they won’t have problems handling it.
Burton Albion Hoping to Cause City Problems
Getting into the semifinal stage of Carabao Cup (EFL Cup) is already considered a massive achievement for Burton Albion, but reaching the final will be their next dream.
Playing against Premier League defending champion will be difficult, but they are set to battle and play without pressure or fear at Etihad Stadium.
Having to travel to City’s home ground on the first leg, Burton are hoping that they can get a positive result to keep their shot in the second leg tie.
Guardiola’s team should be favorite to take the win here, though if they are not careful, Burton can give them some problems.
