Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
By beating Ipswich Town and Bristol Rovers in the replays, Coventry City set up a meeting with Birmingham City in the FA Cup last 32. Not only are they eyeing promotion to the Championship, but the Sky Blues have big ambitions for the 2019/20 FA Cup campaign as well. Coventry City are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and we predict that they will fight tooth and nail against Birmingham City.
The Blues are one of the most unpredictable teams in the Championship. The Blues did well to beat Blackburn Rovers in their opener, and they are surely capable of matching Coventry City at St. Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium. Coventry groundshare at Birmingham this season, meaning that fans of the two clubs are likely to pack the stadium. A close encounter is on the horizon, and we predict that the two sides are going to share the spoils in Saturday’s FA Cup game.
