Manchester City vs Burton Albion: Match Preview and Predicted Starting XI

Manchester City will be hosting English League One side, Burton Albion at the Etihad Stadium in the first leg of the semi-final of the Carabo Cup.

The defending champion will hope to continue their winning run in the year and also work hard to take a step further in their defense of the English Football League title.

Burton Albion, on the other hand, will be hoping to get a draw from this match and finish off the English giant at their home in the second leg of the encounter.

Both teams started the year on a good note, City defeated the English Premier League leader, Liverpool in their last match while Burton defeated Rochdale in their League 1 encounter.
