Manchester City Vs Watford Head to Head Record and Stats as the Citizens will compete against the Hornets in the FA Cup final 2019.
Manchester City have been phenomenal in England this season, also their recent Premier league title victory will surely give them a major boost.
The Citizens would be looking forward to win the first-ever English domestic treble. Further, this could be Vincent Kompany’s final match for Manchester City and a FA Cup final victory will be an ideal farewell for the club legend.
Whereas, Watford haven’t been impressive in the recent run of matches. However, the Hornets have the ability to upset any giant club.
Additionally, it is a final and despite being an underdog, Watford can shatter the dreams of absolute domestic success of Pep Guardiola.
Although, no team to finish in the bottom half of the top-flight table has ever beaten the side to finish top in an FA Cup final.
Watford are on a 10-match losing streak against Manchester City in all competitions and are winless in 15 since a 1-0 victory in the second tier back in March 1989.
Either Pep Guardiola or Javi Gracia will become the third Spanish manager to win the FA Cup, emulating Rafael Benitez (2006, Liverpool) and Roberto Martinez (2013, Wigan).
The finale will be played in the Wembley stadium tomorrow night. Let us look at the head-to-head statistics between these two English sides.
