Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
A place in the FA Cup semis will be at stake when Norwich City and Manchester United face each other at Carrow Road. The Canaries have been struggling in the Premier League ever since they restarted the season, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in Saturday’s football game. Considering that the game will be played behind closed doors, we do not believe that home win should be considered.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, rolled over Sheffield United 3-0 in their last league fixture. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops are eyeing their first FA Cup trophy since 2016, and, no doubt, they want to save the season by going all the way in the prestigious competition. Given Norwich City’s current form, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the English giants.
Highlighted Player (Emiliano Buendia):
Born on the 25th of December, 1996, Emiliano Buendia or "Emi" is an Argentine footballer who plays for Norwich City in the Premier League. Born in Mar del Plata, the pacey winger's youth career was initially spent playing for local club Cadetes de San Martin.
In 2009, he left Argentina to join Real Madrid and then Getafe in 2010 with whom he signed his first professional contract four years later. Buendia spent his primary season at Getafe playing for the reserves and made his professional debut the following season in a 1-0 away loss to Almeria on the 1st of February, 2015. After spending over three years at the club, Buendia left Getafe in 2017 on a year-long loan to join Cultural Leonesa.
At the end of the loan period, Buendia returned to Getafe, who, in turn, sold him to English club Norwich City. The 22-year-old so far has made 50 appearances for the Canaries, scoring 8 goals and providing 21 assists in the process. Buendia, who has both Spanish and Argentinian citizenship, has represented both countries at the under-19 level.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles.
A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium.
The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
