Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Bristol City and Man City face each other at Ashton Gate Stadium in a David-vs-Goliath FA Cup game. The Robins rolled over WBA 3-0 in the previous round, but they will have a mountain to climb in Tuesday’s encounter. Nakhi Wells is pushing for a start after scoring the winner against Hull City at the weekend, while all Rob Atkinson, Kal Naismith, Kane Wilson, Tommy Conway, and Ayman Benarous remain in the recovery room.
The Citizens, on the other hand, faced no difficulties in a 4-1 win over Bournemouth, and seeing that they are eager to save the season by going all the way in the FA Cup, away win should be considered. Kevin De Bruyne is back from illness, as well as Aymeric Laporte, while John Stones overcome his injury. As always, top scorer Erling Haaland will lead the line for Pep Guardiola’s troops.
Highlighted Player (Nahki Wells):
Born on June 1, 1990 in Hamilton, Bermuda, Nahki Wells is a 170-cm-tall attacker who plays for the Bermuda national team. Wells is a product of Dandy Town Hornets youth academy and he continued playing for the Bermudan side at senior level.
The experienced striker played for the likes of Bermuda Hogges, Eccleshill United and Carlisle United before joining Bradford City in 2011. After spending three seasons at Valley Parade, Nahki Wells signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Huddersfield Town in the winter of 2014. In 2017 he moved to Burnley, but he played for Queens Park Rangers as a loan footballer in the 2018/2019 season.
Speaking of his international career, Wells made his debut for the Bermuda national team in 2007. He scored his first ever goal for Bermuda in the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Trinidad and Tobago. The Burnley man will represent the Gombey Warriors at the 2019 Gold Cup.
Highlighted Team (Man City):
Manchester City are the lest famous of the two major clubs based in Manchester. The club was founded in 1880, but they have been struggling in the English Premier League in the past. Nonetheless, ever since the club was purchased by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, the Citizens have been playing an important role in the English top flight.
Manchester City won two Premier League trophies under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini (2011/2012 and 2013/2014), but both managers eventually paid the price for some disappointing results. Man City play their home games at the Etihad Stadium and the stadium capacity is 55,097.
Manchester United are regarded as Manchester City’s biggest rivals and the likes of Kun Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Uwe Rosler, Yaya Toure, Sylvain Distin are some of the most remarkable players that played for the Etihad Stadium outfit. Manchester City have won four Premier League titles and five FA Cup trophies and it has to be noted that they made it to the Champions League semis in the 2015/2016 season.
