Manchester United fans mock Manchester City’s empty seats at Etihad

Manchester City’s campaign for glory continued on Tuesday night when they edged closer to a place in the final of the Carabao Cup.

There is no doubt that the team have been in scintillating form throughout the season and a cut above the rest in terms of quality.

Recently, though, luck has also been on Pep Guardiola’s side, and that was evident in their semi-final first-leg clash against Bristol City.

Fresh from beating Manchester United in the quarter-finals, the Robins headed into the contest at the Etihad Stadium with plenty of confidence.

The Championship outfit struck first when Bobby Reid netted from the penalty spot.

Early in the second half, Kevin De Bruyne found an equaliser for City, but the killer blow for Bristol City was when Sergio Aguero scored the winner in the 92nd minute to claim a 2-1 advantage.

For City’s local rivals United, the result would not have caused much joy, but they did take delight in the fact that there were plenty of empty seats at the Etihad.
