Bristol City vs Manchester City live stream: match preview
Bristol City welcomes Premier League giants Manchester City to Ashton Gate tonight for one of the more intriguing FA Cup fifth round encounters of the season. These sides met in the League Cup semi-finals five years ago, with the Robins scaring their illustrious opponents after a Sergio Agüero goal in the first leg before eventually falling 5-3. Can they go one step further this time?
London buses and Bristol City fines – you wait ages for one, then two come at once. A week and a half ago, the Robins had gone a frankly ridiculous 469 games without conceding a penalty before Sunderland’s Jay Dasilva was bundled into the penalty area for a 93rd-minute penalty, duly converted by the Robins’ top scorer Nahki Wells for a 1-1 draw. On Saturday, the Bermuda international scored again from the spot – their second penalty in as many games after a year and a half without a penalty – to beat Hull 1-0. Those games are the last in a 12-game unbeaten run in all competitions dating back to a Boxing Day defeat to West Brom that sent the Robins into the Championship drop zone. Increasingly tougher and harder to beat, Nigel Pearson’s 13th-placed side have beaten Swansea and wreaked havoc on West Brom to reach this stage of the FA Cup. Pull off a stunt and they’ll be in the quarterfinals for the first time since 1974.
Still fighting on three fronts, Manchester City have certainly reached the fifth round of the FA Cup in a tough way. City have already met Chelsea and Premier League leaders Arsenal in this competition, but chances are slim that Pep Guardiola will take his foot off the gas tonight with a quarter-final spot up for grabs. While top scorer with 33 goals Erling Haaland is likely to be rested, City’s squad is so strong that World Cup winner Julian Alvarez should lead in the Norwegian’s place after both found the net in Bournemouth’s 4-1 shellacking on weekends. . City’s only defeats this season have come against Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham and Southampton in the Carabao Cup, the latter defeat serving as inspiration for no replay against inferior opposition on paper.
Bristol City vs Manchester City kicks off on Tuesday, February 27 at 8pm GMT / 3pm EST at Ashton Gate. It’s free to watch in the UK. Make sure you know how to watch a Bristol City vs Manchester City live stream from anywhere.
