The big match on the English schedule takes place this Saturday, as the 2023 FA Cup final will be staged at Wembley Stadium. For the first time in history, the showpiece match of the season will be a Manchester Derby, meaning that bragging rights as well as a major piece of silverware will be on the line.
Before Betting On Man City vs Man United
The pressure will be on Man City this weekend, as they look to win the second of three major trophies this term. Their hopes of winning the treble will hinge on Saturday’s showdown against United, as their dreams of emulating the Red Devils team that achieved the feat in 1999 could be over if they aren’t able to claim victory.
City reportedly have injury issues ahead of the Wembley showpiece this weekend, with Ruben Dias, Kevin De Bruyne, and Jack Grealish all doubts. However, Pep Guardiola’s side has been excellent throughout the season in the FA Cup, as they are yet to allow a single goal in five outings. They have won every match in the competition easily, which included victories over Chelsea and Arsenal in the opening two rounds.
Erik ten Hag has already enjoyed an excellent first season at the Theatre of Dreams, and United’s targets for the campaign have already been achieved. The Red Devils landed EFL Cup glory earlier in the campaign, and their spot in next season’s Champions League has already been assured.
United have won four of their five matches in the FA Cup by a 3-1 scoreline, which includes home wins over West Ham, Everton, and Fulham. However, they needed a slice of luck to reach the final, as they only managed to overcome Brighton & Hove Albion from the penalty spot.
