Blues Face Robins in FA Cup Fifth Spherical

Nicely, that’s weird. Simply an hour or so after Manchester City’s Girls’s crew was drawn at Bristol City, the lads obtained the identical opposition. The males’s crew after all, not the ladies’s. That will be barely unfair since our ladies not too long ago battered the Vixens 6-0 on their very own patch.

Nevertheless, the blues reward for beating Arsenal on Friday night will probably be a visit to Ashton Gate to face Bristol City for a spot within the quarter-final of the FA Cup. Bristol City are acquainted opposition to the blues as they confronted one another as not too long ago as 2018 within the League Cup.

On that event, City needed to come from a aim down at half-time earlier than beating the Robins 2-1 because of a late aim from Sergio Aguero. Within the second leg, City, Aguero and Leroy Sane put the blues 2-0, just for Bristol to come back again and stage. A late Kevin de Bruyne aim secured City’s passage 3-2 on the night time and 5-3 on combination.

Regardless of that win, City have a reasonably dismal report at Ashton Gate, having misplaced eight of their 13 visits. The excellent news is that they’ve by no means met one another within the FA Cup and, even higher information, the 2 League Cup matches performed in Bristol have each been gained by City.

The match will happen on or round 1st March with the date and time to be confirmed.
