Summary: Crystal Palace - Manchester City 1:0 (Sport1)
After the crushing 0:7 over R.B.
Leipzig, who sent it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League and a battle of giants against Bayern Munich, Manchester City should continue the winning streak tonight (Saturday, 19:45, Sport2) and qualify for the semi-finals of the FA Cup at the expense of Burnley.
Citizens legend Vincent Kompany has returned to England and is making a splash as the coach of the opposition, who are on the safe way to the Premier League with a 13-point lead at the top of the Championship and he will try to astonish his coach and his former teammates.
Manchester City won the last 10 meetings in all formats, with a goal difference of 1:30, and the last time Burnley beat them away was sometime in March 1963 (2:5 in the Premier League).
Erling Holland continues at the edge after the mighty five for the Leipzig net, with the Argentinian Julian Albers next to him.
Stefan Ortega between the posts and also Riad Mahrez and Phil Foden are back in the 11th.
18-year-old Rico Luis was placed in the left back position.
Lots of love.
