Manchester City vs Brighton & Hove Albion, English FA Cup, Date: Saturday, 6 April 2019, Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET and Venue: Wembley Stadium (London).
Wembley Stadium will host the FA Cup semifinal between Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday night. The defending champions of the Premier League will continue their quest for the quad season after having won the silver of the League Cup after their victory against Chelsea in the final with penalties.
The men of Pep Guardiola are also in the quarterfinals of the Champions League and have the pole position in Liverpool in the fight for the Premier League trophy with six games to play. Manchester City should not have too many problems to go to the final of the FA Cup, after the Seagulls.
Citizens enter this race as massive favorites after a series of 13 consecutive victories in all competitions. They played two very easy matches against Fulham and Cardiff City in the last seven days.

Manchester City vs Brighton & Hove Albion: Prediction
Chris Hughton’s men have yet to ensure their survival in the elite class of English football. They are only five points above the red zone line at the moment. The Irish coach cannot be very satisfied with the recent spell of his men.
The Seagulls barely beat Millwall in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup thanks to a last-minute equalizer that gave them penalties. They lost their home game against Southampton (0-1), as they fought midway through the week.
Brighton has obviously fought for goals lately and it’s hard to imagine them finding the right way here against one of the strongest teams in the country.
