Manchester City vs Newcastle United: prediction for the FA Cup quarter finals

The Magpies will try and stop the Citizens from achieving history!

A Premier League clash will headline the FA Cup quarter finals, as Newcastle United will visit Manchester City. Match will begin on Saturday, March 16, at 6:30 PM CET.

Manchester City

Undefeated since early December, Manchester City is still in a race for a second consecutive treble. One point behind Arsenal and Liverpool in the Premier League, quarter finals in the Champions League and FA Cup - it might not look perfect, but the Citizens know how to win better than anyone.

Manchester City blasted past Huddersfield Town and Luton Town, survived at Tottenham Stadium, eliminating the Spurs with a β€œ1-0” finish, as now they will host another Premier League squad at home.

Newcastle United

While all the injuries have derailed Newcastle United's season, the Magpies still have some things to play for. Newcastle is only seven points behind Manchester United, who are currently sixth in the Premier League, still alive in the FA Cup, so a path to another European competition berth is available.

Newcastle United eliminated Sunderland in a Tyne and Wear derby, took down Fulham at Craven Cottage before surviving in the penalty shootout against Blackburn Rovers, as the Magpies will go on the road again in the quarter finals.

Prediction ⚽️

It will be the fourth meeting this season between the clubs, as Manchester City barely won both times in the Premier League while Newcastle United eliminated the Citizens from contention in the EFL Cup back in September.

Sportsbooks see Manchester City as a massive outright favorite, but we will side with the road team covering a (+1) deficit with enormous 3.10 odds πŸ”₯.
