MU defeated Man City 1-0 in the second leg of the League Cup second leg at Etihad, but that was not enough for “Reds” to the final when they had lost 3-1 rivals in the first leg.
As a team underestimated, Man Utd joined the defense of the majority. With De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Man City still easily penetrated the multi-layer defense of the visitors. At least twice in the first half, Aguero was close to the goal but the Argentine striker could not beat De Gea.
Man City played overwhelmingly but suddenly let MU concede after a fixed situation in the 35th minute. Nemanja Matic hit the left foot volley accurately into the far corner, making Bravo only stand still. At the end of the first half, the pressure was increased by the host but no goals were scored.
The initiative still belongs to Man City in the second half. De Gea’s goal was many times wide open but the blue-footed strikers handled it so perfectionist that the opportunity passed unfortunately.
76 minutes, MU only played with 10 people when Matic received a second yellow card from the referee Kevin Friend. Man City with an advantage over people also can not take advantage to score goals. In the 84th minute, Aguero put the ball into the visitors’ net but like Sterling in the first half, the goal was not recognized for offside.
To lose 0-1 but Man City still won the right to the League Cup final against Aston Villa when the total score after 2 matches was 3-2.
