Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
There will be fireworks when Manchester United and Chelsea take on each other at Old Trafford in the FA Cup semis. The Red Devils have been impressive in the Premier League after the coronavirus football break, but they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 2-2 draw with Southampton. Anyhow, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is doing a great job with the Old Trafford outfit, and we predict that his men are going to find the net in Sunday’s showdown.
The Blues, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Norwich City in midweek. Frank Lampard’s troops are eyeing their 9th FA Cup trophy, but beating the high-flying Red Devils at Wembley Stadium is easier said than done. Anyhow, both teams to score betting option should be considered as Man Utd have been struggling at the back of late. Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante misses the game with injury, while Mason Greenwood is rated doubtful for the nominal hosts.
Highlighted Player (Bruno Fernandes):
Bruno Fernandes is a Portuguese footballer who used to play for Novara before joining Udinese in a co-ownership deal in the summer of 2013. The Portuguese midfielder scored his first goal for the club in a 3-3 draw with Napoli on 7 December, 2013.
Three years later he signed a deal with Sampdoria for a fee of €7 million. Fernandes moved to Sampdoria in order to replace Roberto who reinforced Villarreal. Soriano He played 33 games for the Zebrette in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign, scoring three goals for the club, while providing four assists for his teammates.
Fernandes is a central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as a secondary striker as well. He was born in Maia, Portugal on 8 September, 1994 and he began his youth career at Infesta. Fernandes has seven caps for Portugal U21 team and he has played 4 matches for the U23 team.
Highlighted Team (Chelsea):
Over the years Chelsea have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the English Premier League. Roberto Di Matteo helped the team win their first ever Champions League trophy (2011/2012), but it has to be noted that they were more than fortunate to beat Bayern Munich in the title game.
Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash.
After lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, the Blues largely struggled in the next campaign, which saw Jose Mourinho’s second spell with the club come to an end, and Antoine Conte went over to take the reigns for the 2016/2017 season.
