2023-24 FA Cup Finals – The Entire Match Details with its Odds and Prediction

2023-24 FA Cup

Though the years pass, the FA Cup battle between Manchester City and Manchester United continues. We all remember what happened in the previous season of the FA Cup. Manchester City and Manchester United blew off all the teams and grabbed the final spot, and with their excellent team effort, Manchester City won the game with a score of 2-1 on June 3, 2024. Notably, İlkay Gündoğan from Manchester City and Bruno Fernandes from Manchester United played pivotal roles in their teams’ final journeys. The second consecutive matchup will be thrilling; one team is ready to hold the title for the second straight time, and the other is ready to pay back what they received in the previous season. This intense clash is scheduled for May 25, 2024, at Wembley Stadium (London).



Manchester City’s path to the FA Cup finals was a magnificent display of their undeniable prowess and worthiness of the cup. Their campaign commenced with a 5-0 triumph over Huddersfield Town at the Etihad Stadium. In subsequent rounds, they continued their match, conquering Tottenham Hotspur, Luton Town, and Newcastle United. In the semi-final, City secured a narrow 1-0 victory over Chelsea, courtesy of Bernardo Silva’s late goal. Manchester City’s journey to the finals is a testament to their experience, skill, and determination. Apart from this, Manchester City is currently at the top of the English Premier League and is trying to make this year a success. The city’s attacking, possession-based style of play is the reason for its dominance. With his accurate passing, Kevin De Bruyne is still a master at setting up attacks, and Erling Haaland is still a constant threat in front of the goal. Their midfield is creative and controlled thanks to players like İlkay Gündoğan and Bernardo Silva, who give their squad depth and experience. Gündoğan, for instance, has scored ten goals and provided five assists in the FA Cup this season, making him a key player to watch.

In the third round, Manchester United entered this FA Cup as a Premier League side. Their first match was against Wigan Athletic, which they won 2-0. Like Manchester City, their journey was filled with great moments by further winning Newport County, Nottm Forest, and defeating the strong Liverpool in the quarter-finals. In the semifinals, they defeated Coventry with a 3 (4) score. In the previous season, Manchester City beat them in the final, making them the FA Cup champions. Manchester United was a strong contender in the tournament, but Manchester City’s experience was the difference. However, this time, we can expect strong resilience from them to catch what they have lost. They may not be title contenders in the English Premier League, but their progress is evident. Bruno Fernandes is still an important player who leads and brings creativity to the midfield. Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford have shown flashes of their potential on the wings, and Antony’s transfer from Ajax has increased their attacking possibilities. In their last five meetings, Manchester City won three times, Manchester United won once, and they drew once, indicating a close and competitive rivalry.

The FA Cup final holds immense significance for both teams. For Manchester City, it’s an opportunity to maintain dominance and secure another trophy. For Manchester United, it’s a chance to end their trophy drought and make a statement. In the prior season’s FA Cup final, Manchester City broke Manchester United’s dreams of holding the title by a point margin. The standout player was Ilkay Gundogan, who scored twice for Manchester City, one of which was a winning goal to grab the title. After only 12 seconds, his quick goal set a new record for the fastest goal in FA Cup final history. Later, he volleyed Kevin de Bruyne’s free-kick past United keeper David de Gea to seal the win. In the 33rd minute, Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes equalized the score with a penalty. In the 51st minute, Gündoğan scored the winning goal for Manchester City. The factors that led to Manchester United’s loss were City’s strong start and early goal, which put them on the front foot, and individual errors that led to City’s goals. In their semi-finals, Manchester City faced off against Chelsea with a score of 1-0. The match remained scoreless for most of the game, but Bernardo Silva’s well-placed finish in the 84th minute secured the win for City. Even though Chelsea showed strong counter-attacks, they failed to use their opportunities.

In addition, Manchester City persisted and found a way to win even without their star striker, Erling Haaland, who initially struggled to create scoring opportunities. On the other hand, Manchester United defeated Coventry City with a score of 3-4. The final score was a 3-3 draw after extra time, with Manchester United winning 4-2 on penalties. Overall, they secured the final spot in the FA Cup with their resilience and penalty shootout. This FA Cup final pits hunger and experience against one another in a classic fashion. United is a formidable opponent due to their intense desire for victory, even though City has the experience and a slight advantage in recent games. Every aspect, including tactical choices, injury list, and team form, will matter. Manchester City, known for their possession-based style of play, have been in excellent form, maintaining a high level of consistency. On the other hand, Manchester United, with their fast-paced and aggressive approach, has shown resilience and determination in recent games. Ultimately, this much-awaited Manchester derby could come down to a single flash of brilliance from a superstar player. Considering their performances and recent form, we highly expect Manchester City to win this game.
