Match Preview

Man United will be heavily favored in the betting for this weekend’s FA Cup semi-final showdown with Coventry City at Wembley Stadium. However, it has been a testing period for the Red Devils after going four without a win since their quarterfinal success against Liverpool at Old Trafford at the end of March.

United boast a dominant record against Coventry, having won 13 of the last 15 meetings. However, the latest clash between the teams ended in a 2-0 win for the Sky Blues at Old Trafford in September 2007. This is the first time that the sides have clashed in the competition since the fourth round in 1986-87 when Coventry landed a 1-0 win on their way to winning the tournament.

This will be the 32nd time that United have played in the semi-final stage of the FA Cup, which is more than any other side. Meanwhile, this is just the second time that Coventry have competed at this stage of the competition. But, the Sky Blues do have a 100% record at this stage after beating Leeds on their most recent appearance on their way to winning the tournament in 1987.

The Red Devils will be aiming to reach a second successive FA Cup final this weekend. They previously achieved that feat in 2005. However, it would be a concern how weak United have been defensively throughout this season, with only Luton Town allowing more shots on goal in the Premier League than the Red Devils.

Coventry vs Man United Prediction

Coventry will get their chances against United at Wembley this weekend, meaning we could see them finding the back of the net. However, we still expect the Red Devils to come out on top and reach the FA Cup final.
