Nemanja Matic goal Vs Manchester City: Watch the Serbian midfielder smashing a volley inside Manchester City’s net to heat up league cup tie.

Manchester United are two goals behind to their local rivals Manchester City on the aggregate score on the semi-final round of the FA Cup, giving them a brighter scope to out beat Pep Guardiola’s side.

Credits to Nemanja Matic who has given a spark to the Red Devils to make an attempt against their local rivals with the second half yet to be played to determine the tie.

Manchester United won a free-kick after Rodri fouled on Jesse Lingard, which gave the Red Devils a moment to hurt the Champions League fans.

Fred curls the free-kick in and Man City can’t clear with the initial header. The rebound lands to Matic who rifles home on the half-volley from the right of the box. The finish was absolutely brilliant, giving no chance to Claudio Bravo.

Manchester City is still at a one-goal lead against Manchester United. Yet the Red Devils need two goals to defeat the Citizens or else wither Manchester city will qualify in the Red Devils doesn’t score or it will go to penalties if they score one more (both cases require no goals from Manchester City tonight).

The three goals scored by Manchester City in the reverse tie at the Old Trafford has given a significant advantage to Manchester City, which means the Manchester United need to make extra effort to have a sure shot win and avoid penalty shootouts.

Manchester United has totally performed brilliantly against Manchester City this season, which also includes a win by them at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League.

With the second half about to be played, Manchester United needs to make better decisions, meanwhile, Manchester City is struggling in defence but Guardiola views a comfortable win from here even though his team conceded.
