Manchester City take on Newcastle United next in the Premier League. Manchester City need the win to keep Liverpool at bay and eventually win the title. Newcastle on the other hand would be hoping to ruin City’s weekend.
Manchester City are in the wake of a shocking defeat to Real Madrid in the Semi-Finals of the Champions League. City were leading the game in both legs until the very end of the second leg. City were leading the aggregate 5-3 until Rodrygo scored in the 89th minute and scored again in injury time. Karim Benzema finished off the game with a penalty kick. City players will be defeated and have their hopes diminished moving on to this game. However, They have a title to defend and a rival to fend off.
Newcastle United have solidified their position and are heading for a mid-table finish. They have nothing to lose nor to gain from the remaining matches. However, They can topple Manchester City’s title hopes in the game. Now is the best time for Newcastle to push against City as team morale is down. There is a possibility they will drop points in the match and Newcastle need to take it.
Date, Kick-off Time and Venue
The match takes place on 8th April, Sunday at 9:00 PM at the Etihad stadium.
