Burton vs Man City predictions, betting tips and preview for the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg at the Pirelli Stadium. After their dominant 9-0 win in the first leg, Manchester City are expected to welcome fans from the stand to play in this match.
Of course, that is not true, but there is no coming back for Burton here and so Pep Guardiola will give a rest to as many of his first team squad as possible in this clash as they gear up for the Premier League run in.
