The FA Cup weekend saw a lot of 1/32 finals action, with the Manchester United – Aston Villa battle dragged to Monday, with the match forecast for these opponents published on our website. Full statistics and all odds for the match can be found at 1xbet official website.
A riot is brewing at MU
Under Ragnick, the Red Devils have always shown pragmatic football, although as long as there has been a result, this has been tolerated by all. In the last round, however, the club lost for the first time with a new mentor, a 0-1 defeat at home to Wolverhampton, and the opponent was indeed better. Immediately there were rumours that many players were unhappy with their position and the pattern of play, including Ronaldo. MJ are only seventh in the APL, four points behind the first quartet with a game to spare, although we need everyone to play their reserve games, then the picture will become clear. Manchester are not a team that can simply afford to sacrifice the FA Cup, they are also expected to win here.
Birmingham are a strong middle runners
Aston Villa under Gerrard have already cemented themselves in the middle of the AFL table, showing good football. Now they are in a bit of a slump in the league, with three defeats in four games. The Birmingham side lost 1-2 away to Brentford in the last round, their first defeat under Gerrard against a non top-four opponent. “The Lions are 12th in the league and safe, with an 11-point lead over the relegation zone.
The teams played each other this season in the APL, then MJ under Sulzer lost 0-1 at home, the Red Devils conceded in the 88th minute before failing to convert a penalty in the 90+3 minutes.
Forecast on the match
Since the publication of the quotes, the odds on MJ keep growing, everything is understandable, because Manchester does not show spectacular football, and if they win, then with a difference of one goal. The home team’s chances of success are rated higher now, but it will be difficult to beat the organised Aston Villa. A +1 goal handicap bet on the home side looks promising.
