Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Buoyed by a 3-1 win over Middlesbrough, Coventry City will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Oxford United in the FA Cup last 64. The Sky Blues have been scoring goals for fun of late and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play in the upcoming fixtures. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Japan international Tatsuhiro Sakamoto, who scored a brace in the last Championship game, while defender Liam Kitching misses out through suspension.
The Yellows, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Charlton Athletic. Oxford United, but seeing that they are fully focused on the League One, we predict that the hosts are going to advance to the FA Cup round 4. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Coventry.
Highlighted Team (Coventry):
Nicknamed the Sky Blues, Coventry City are an English football club that compete in the League One. Coventry City, who were founded on August 13, 1883 as Singers FC, wear sky blue kit when playing on home soil, whilst their away colour is white.
Aston Villa and Leicester City are considered the club’s main rivals, but they have rivalry with fellow West Midlands clubs Wallsall and Burton Albion as well. Coventry City have yet to win the Premier League trophy, but they did well to go all the way in the FA Cup in the 1986/1987 season, with the team beat Charlton Athletic in the two-legged final. They share stadium with Birmingham City, with both clubs playing their home games at St. Andrew’s Stadium.
Built in December, 1906, St. Andrew’s Stadium can hold up to 29,409 spectators. Dion Dublin is one of the most famous Coventry City players, with the legendary centre-forward scoring 61 goals in 145 appearances for the club in the league.
