Man City dreams of a ‘real exhaust’ treble… FA Cup Final
Manchester City dreams of winning the treble again. They reached the final of the FA Cup. They are running second in the English Premier League (EPL) and are aiming for a come-from-behind championship. They are also in the semi-finals of the European Champions League (EPL).
Manchester City won 3-0 thanks to Riyad Mahrez’s hat-trick in the 2022-23 FA Cup semi-final match against Sheffield United held at Wembley Stadium in London, England on the 23rd (Korean time).
Manchester City will compete for the championship cup with the winner of the Manchester United-Brighton match on the 24th. The final will be held at Wembley Stadium on 3 June.
After winning the 2019 championship, Man City was eliminated in the semifinals for three consecutive years and advanced to the final in four years. I’m trying to win my 7th championship. Man City are running second in the EPL this season. They are behind leader Arsenal by 5 points, but can overtake with two less matches. In particular, a match against Arsenal is scheduled on the 27th, so if you win this match, the possibility of a third consecutive league loss increases. Man City also advanced to the UCL semifinals, leaving open the possibility of a treble. In the UCL semifinals, they face Real Madrid (Spain).
Man City swept the EPL, FA Cup and League Cup in the 2018-19 season, achieving so-called domestic triple crowns. It is the first time to challenge for three gold medals including UCL.
So far, the only case in which an EPL team has swept the league, FA Cup, and UCL in one season is Manchester United in 1999. In Europe as a whole, in 2020 Bayern Munich (Germany) won the Bundesliga, cup competitions, and UCL. 스포츠토토
Manchester City faced Sheffield, an English second division team, and Mahrez scored the first goal with a penalty kick in the 43rd minute of the first half, and won easily with left-footed shots in the 16th and 21st minutes of the second half. The FA Cup semi-final hat-trick is the first in 65 years since Alex Dawson (then Manchester United) in 1958. Man City started with the best players except for Kevin Debrawiner and Hubin Dias that day, but as the game was split early, they arranged their stamina with early substitutions in the second half.
