Carabao Cup Semi-Final Preview – Bristol City v Man City

Manchester City’s hunt for the quadruple continues on as they travel to Bristol City for the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final.

The Robins ran City close in the first leg, and Pep Guardiola and his side are taking the Championship team serious and will be fielding a strong XI.

“Of course we are going to try to see the best team as possible,” he said.

“I will say we are going to go there and try and win the game and go to the final.”

Bristol City chief Lee Johnson realises his side will need to attack.

“We have to score – we know that,” said Johnson.

“We’re at home so we want to impose ourselves. We have to play with content and character.

“I know that we’ll have chances. We’ve got a good bench and I think it’ll be nice and attacking.”
