Man City vs Man Utd

FA Cup finals tend to be competitive so this may not be the regular season romp we saw when Man City ran Man Utd into the ground on two occasions.

It’s hard to see United mustering the quality to prevent Pep Guardiola’s side from creating chances at will.

Wembley lends itself to slow, controlled contests so we can’t see past the ‘hosts’ dominating and picking off their leaky opponents when the chance presents itself.




Celtic vs Rangers

Celtic have formed a habit of getting the best of Rangers when it matters most, yet eight of the last nine meetings have been decided on one or fewer goals.

This is an extremely competitive derby and the occasion and this being a Scottish Cup final should only exacerbate things, so we’ll go out on a limb and predict extra time.

The Hoops finished the season in superb form to win the SPL title at a canter and while they won’t be short of motivation, the desire for revenge should help the Gers compete.




Lyon vs Paris Saint Germain

Lyon’s form at the business end of the season has been nearly impeccable. Pierre Sage’s side won nine and drew one of their final 11 matches to secure a top-six finish.

Their sole loss during the run-in was a 4-1 battering at the hands of PSG where the Parisians led 2-0 after six minutes and dominated the game.

Unfortunately, there’s no real competition for PSG in France and we expect Kylian Mbappe, who is fresh after sitting out the last two matches, to sign off with one last piece of silverware as he lifts the Coupe de France.




Kaiserslautern vs Leverkusen

Xabi Alonso has to rally the troops and put the disappointment of their 3-0 loss to Atalanta in the Europa League final behind them quickly as they contest the DFB-Pokal final.

That defeat also means the end of their historic unbeaten, but they’re still unbeaten on German soil and have the chance to secure a domestic double.

Luckily for them, second-tier Kaiserslautern won’t prove the most challenging of opponents. They’ll give their all, but there’s a massive gulf in quality, so we expect Bayer to run up the score.




Al Ain vs Yokohama F. Marinos

By no means the most high-profile inclusion in this weekend’s cup final acca, Al Ain’s clash with Yokohama F. Marinos looks generously priced and one to exploit.

The Japanese side holds a 2-1 lead in the AFC Champions League final, played over two legs. Despite winning on home soil, we expect Al Ain to battle back and lift the trophy.

Their home form looks questionable, but not in competition. There are no better endorsements than their 1-0 win against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr, or the 4-2 win against run-away Saudi league winners Al Hilal.
