Manchester United vs Liverpool: prediction for the FA Cup quarter finals

The biggest game in English football ⚽️

The Northwest derby is scheduled for Sunday, as Manchester United and Liverpool will clash for a 214th time. The FA Cup quarter final will start on Sunday, March 17, at 4:30 PM CET.

Manchester United

While the up and down season has not given Manchester United much to celebrate, there is still a chance to secure both a Champions League slot for the next campaign and the oldest trophy in association football.

The only Premier League squad the Red Devils have faced on their path to the quarter finals was Nottingham Forest, as United eliminated them with a “1-0” road victory during the last round. Now, however, comes the biggest test, as the archrivals are coming to Old Trafford.

Liverpool

Still with a chance to earn a quadruple, Liverpool won the EFL Cup, trounced Sparta Prague in Europa League to advance to the quarter finals and earned a draw against Manchester City in the Premier League, staying in first place with Arsenal.

Now comes the FA Cup, where Liverpool has eliminated the Gunners in January before rampaging through a pack of EFL Championship teams in Norwich City and Southampton. The Reds need only three wins to secure another trophy, but a trip to Manchester is coming up on Sunday.

Prediction ⚽️

Since their last meeting in FA Cup in 2021, when United won “3-2”, Liverpool posted some monstrous wins in the Northwest derby, including “4-0”, “5-0” and even “7-0” in 2023.

The Reds will be on short rest after their game with Czech side in Europa League and the Red Devils should be motivated to salvage their season. Sportsbooks strongly side with the visitors, but we will go with Manchester United to advance to the semis with an anytime win for 2.80 odds 🔥.
