Our expert made a prediction for the match of the 1/8 finals of the FA Cup season 2019/20 “Derby County” – “Manchester United”.
The last two meetings of current rivals took place in 2018. First, the “Red Devils” knocked out the rams from the FA Cup, but then the “Derby County” at the Old Trafford stadium took revenge in the English League Cup in a penalty shoot-out. At that time, the coach of “Manchester United” was Jose Mourinho, who did not like to experiment with the squad. Now, Ole Gunnar Solskher often changes players, because of which his team sometimes looks uncoordinated.
Seams that the Norwegian specialist concerns are the Premier League and the Europa League, but not the FA cup. At the last match of the tournament, “Wolves” lost to MU only because of their terrible realization of scoring chances and inattention of defense in one single episode, which led to a conceded goal. For “Derby County” this tournament is important, and you can be sure of this after past matches with “Crystal Palace” and “Northampton”.
Prediction: Derby County victory
