Match : Bristol City vs Manchester City
Competition : England – Carabao Cup
Time / Date : 21:45h / 23 January 2018
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium
The team from Championship Bristol has the tough task of facing for the second time against one of the best teams in Europe, after a goal in previous round their ambitions remained alive.
After a great first half of the season, L. Johnson’s team is now in a 6-game series without a win, with 5 of them losing.
The previous round, Pep’s team returned to victory after a 3-1 win over Newcastle, and quickly managed to shake off Liverpool’s loss.
However, the team does not perform well as a guest lately since last two games are without a victory.
I do not expect the Bristol team to make big changes and maybe it will come out with the same team.
Pep will come out with a strong squad here, and maybe will make more changes next match that is for the FA Cup.
I’m expecting the hosts to come out with full strength and to be a problem for Pep’s team.
Maybe there will be calm first minutes, and Bristol will try to close the space for City fast players and wait for their chance of a counter attack.
