Manchester City

Brighton & Hove Albion have the chance to reach their first FA Cup final since 1983 on Saturday, when they face the mighty Manchester City in the semi-final at Wembley. City are, of course, going for a quadruple of trophies this season, and have already won the Carabao Cup. The Seagulls will look to history for inspiration, as they beat City 4-0 in 1983 during their shock run to the final.

Brighton vs Manchester City Betting Tips: Form Guide

Brighton Looking To History

Chris Hughton’s Brighton team go into this game as no hopers, at least in the eyes of the bookies, all of whom have made Manchester City overwhelming favourites for this game. But Brighton have history against City in the Cup, and will hope that they can repeat the 4-0 victory they achieved over City in 1983 in the fourth round. Brighton reached the final that season, where they drew 2-2 with Manchester United. Gordon Smith missed a straightforward late chance to win the game for Albion, an incident which has gone down in history. United won the subsequent replay 4-0.

Albion head into this game having lost their last two league games, against Southampton and Chelsea, without managing to score a goal. They also needed penalties to beat Millwall in the sixth round of the Cup, with Solly March’s 95th minute equaliser keeping them alive in the competition that day. Form is not good, and Hughton will need to find something that can motivate his players on Saturday. Albion have won just one of their last 11 games against City, and that was back in 1989 in a second tier league game when they won 2-1.

Invincible City In Hunt For Quadruple

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City team are such massive favourites with all of the bookmakers to win this game and reach the FA Cup final that their main enemy must be complacency as they look to win a quadruple of trophies in 2019. City have progressed to the final from 10 of their last 13 FA Cup semi-final appearances, and have won eight of their last nine. Their power this season is shown by the fact that they have scored more FA Cup goals in 2018/19 than any other team. The Citizens have notched up 19 goals in the competition so far, and are looking to become the first side to score 20 FA Cup goals in a season since Chelsea achieved the feat in 2011/12. City last scored 20 FA Cup goals in a season in 1980/81, when they were beaten in the final by Tottenham Hotspur.

City have not lost a game in any competition since being beaten by Newcastle United in the Premier League on January 29. Since then, they have won 13 games in all competitions, with their only slight hiccup being the draw with Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final. Of course, they won that game on penalties.

Brighton vs Manchester City Prediction: Comfortable City Victory

If you’re looking for Brighton vs Manchester City betting tips for today, our prediction is that City will win 4-0. The Citizens have such an array of attacking power, it is almost impossible to see any way that Brighton can win this game. Of course, shocks do happen in the FA Cup, but an upset on Saturday looks unlikely to happen. Brighton have never won at Wembley, having played there on four previous occasions, and they do not look like breaking that hoodoo this weekend. City have had 89 attempts on goal in the FA Cup this season, with 38 on target. That averages out as an attempt on goal every four minutes or so.
