Dreams can come true in cup competitions, and why not in this year's Carabao Cup?


League One Burton Albion travel to Manchester City's Etihad Stadium after an impressive cup run that saw them knock out Middlesborough in the last round. They may not be favourites by any means to make it through to the final to play Chelsea or Tottenham, but they will give these two legs everything they have.

Manchester City come to the game after a busy Christmas period with their eyes on chasing down Liverpool in the league, and Champions League last 16 matches. They have a large squad and are likely to rotate the team to allow for fresh legs, but do they have too many plates spinning still in 2019?

There will be no shortage of passion in this first leg tie, with the Burton fans in high spirits and good voice as they attempt to get a vital away goal and keep themselves in contention for when the teams meet for the second leg at the Pirelli Stadium.

It's going to be one worth watching...
