Coventry City vs Manchester United. Shape of the Teams

Coventry will face Manchester United in the FA Cup semifinals at Wembley on April 21st. Mark Robins’ team has had a somewhat fortuitous run in the competition, avoiding any top-tier opposition. Perhaps their toughest encounter was against Wolverhampton, but Coventry secured a dramatic 2-3 victory in extra time at Molineux.

However, the victory over Wolverhampton came at a steep cost. Coventry lost three out of their last four Championship matches and practically lost their chances to reach the playoffs.

On the other hand, Manchester United’s prospects of qualifying for major European competitions via the Premier League are dimming. They would have been up for a loss against Bournemouth last weekend if it weren’t for Bruno Fernandes’ goal from the penalty spot, which led to the final 2-2 score. 

The gap between Manchester United and Tottenham is now 10 points, and with only six rounds left until the end of the season, the odds are stacked against them for UCL qualification. This means that the FA Cup is the last chance to salvage an otherwise disappointing season.

Coventry City vs Manchester United Main Match Info

Coventry City vs Manchester United Prediction, Odds

Bruno Fernandes has been on a good run for Manchester United, having netted goals in three consecutive Premier League matches. His scoring spree started with a goal against Chelsea, followed by a stunner against Liverpool and, most recently – a brace against Bournemouth.

I believe Fernandes will again be in the driver’s seat for this match. He has been in perfect form lately and seems primed to add to his goal tally in this match. Considering the status of the game and Man United’s playing style, there’s a good chance that the Red Devils can even earn a penalty in this encounter, which could further boost Bruno’s scoring chances.

With the anticipation of a goal fest, Bruno Fernandes can make a difference. Despite facing criticism earlier, he has shown that he can rise to the occasion, and it would be reasonable to place a stake on his goal. 

Coventry City vs Manchester United Betting Tip

Manchester United are the clear favourites going into this clash. However, for Coventry, this is not only the main match of the season but arguably the biggest game in recent decades. They are currently eighth in the Championship, and their playoff chances are dwindling, so they are expected to throw everything they have into this match.

Coventry certainly has a shot at scoring, given Manchester United’s problems in defence. The Red Devils are without several key defenders, including Johnny Evans, Luke Shaw, Lisandro Martínez, Raphaël Varane, and Victor Lindelöf. 

Additionally, the Red Devils have not kept a clean sheet in their last five matches, with four of those games featuring over three goals. Similarly, Coventry concluded all their last 11 matches, seeing a tally of more than two goals – a massive number.

Given these circumstances, I think that a combination of a double chance in favour of Manchester United and a total over 2.5 seems like a plausible choice. Still, the class and depth of the Red Devils should help them to come out on top in such an important match, especially considering their recent scarcity of trophies.
