FA Cup Semi Final Draw Preview & Winner Odds

Manchester City

The draw for the semi-finals of the FA Cup sees outright favourites Manchester City take on Brighton and Wolves going up against Watford. It was another fantastic weekend of Cup action with Watford the first to reach the final four.

FA Cup Winner Odds*

Man City 1/3
Wolves 4/1
Watford 10/1
Brighton 16/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 17th, 2019 at 7:10 p.m.)

Andre Gray came off the bench to get the winning goal at Vicarage Road for Watford against Crystal Palace. They will go up against Wolves who produced a fantastic display to dispatch Manchester United on Saturday evening at Molineux. It continues a fine season from Nuno Espirito Santo’s men in both league and cup.

Manchester City had to mount a big fightback to reach the final four. They found themselves 2-0 down at Championship side Swansea but managed to haul themselves through to the next round with a 3-2 turnaround. It leaves Manchester City as 1/3 outright favourites* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 17th, 2019 at 7:10 p.m.).

The Citizens, who are still firing on four different fronts this season play host to Brighton. The Seagulls managed to scrape through a tough match at Millwall on Sunday, equalising in the 95th minute after a mistake front the Lions’ keeper. That gave them the lifeline they needed and they came through a penalty shootout to reach the final four.

FA Cup & League Cup Betting

Millwall v Brighton FA Cup Preview, 17th March 12.15pm

This could be a great scrap at The Den. Millwall have not been enjoying a great deal of success in their Championship game. This is a great chance for them to blow off some steam and they have already knocked Everton out of this season’s competition. Will Brighton survive the trip?

Millwall News and Form

The Lions are down near the relegation zone in the Championship and things are a little tedious there for them. But the FA Cup has brought them some good relief. Millwall’s FA Cup campaign started with a home win over Hull, then they pulled off a huge upset in taking out Premier League side Everton at the Den. Then it was a narrow 1-0 win out at AFC Wimbledon for them. So they have all been tight one-goal margin wins in the FA Cup from Millwall, but they have gotten the job done. Home and away, their current form has seen them lose four of their last five. They snapped a four-match losing streak with an away win at Birmingham in the Championship last weekend. Their only home success in their last six games at The Den was their win over Everton (D2 L3).

Millwall v Brighton Head to Head

This is the first meeting since the 2014/15 Championship season
Millwall have won just one of their last eight against Brighton
Five of the last eight meetings have been drawn
None of the last four meetings have gone over 2.5 goals

Brighton News and Form

Brighton had gone D3 L4 in a poor run of form, but they have perhaps just turned the corner. The Seagulls have won three of their last four played in all competitions (L1). That run of improvement started with a 2-1 home success over Championship side Derby in the last round of the competition. They are not particularly in great shape on their travels through. A win at Crystal Palace the league in their last away game snapped a four-match winless streak they were on. Brighton have lost five of their last nine on the road. Brighton won at Bournemouth in the third round and then needed extra time to take a win over West Brom at the Hawthorns in the fourth round.

Who will win – Millwall v Brighton Predictions

Brighton to win at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 14th, 2019 at 8:00 p.m.) offers just enough value for us. The Seagulls have just hit a bit of form at the right time. This won’t be easy but they can get themselves over the finish line.

Wolves v Manchester United FA Cup Preview, 16th March 12.15pm

This is an all-Premier League clash and it could be an interesting one at Molineux as well. Wolves have shown plenty of strengths this season in taking on the stronger clubs in competition. Will they be able to deny Manchester United who head into the tie as favourites?

Wolves News and Form

Wolves are carrying some pretty decent form into this one. They have only lost one of their last eleven games, home and away across all competitions. So they are not going to be a pushover in this fixture by any stretch of the imagination. The home form of Wolves is actually rock solid at W5 D1 in their last six at Molineux in all competitions. During that sequence, each of the five wins saw Wolves score at least two goals. So they are going well and there was a win over Liverpool in this season’s FA Cup in that sequence, back in the third round. Following that, they took out Shrewsbury in a replay and then Bristol City.

Manchester United News and Form

The Red Devils have had a great FA Cup campaign. It all started with a comfortable third-round home win over Reading. Then they took an away win at Arsenal and then another road success at Chelsea. So Manchester United have come through some big challenges. The Red Devils lost at Arsenal in the Premier League in their last away game. That snapped a tremendous nine-match winning streak away from home in all competitions that they were on. Manchester United have scored at least two goals in four of their last five away from Old Trafford. All three of their FA Cup wins this season have been by a two-goal margin.

Who will win – Wolves v Manchester United Predictions

Manchester United have already proven this season that they can go out on the road in FA Cup challenges against strong sides and get through. This may be no exception and Manchester United to win in the match outright at 13/10 odds is a solid proposition* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 14th, 2019 at 8:39 p.m.).

Swansea v Manchester City FA Cup Preview, 16th March 12.15pm

Championship side Swansea have the unenviable task of having to go up against Manchester City in the FA Cup quarterfinals.

Swansea News and Form

There’s a massive challenge ahead for the Swans in this one then. They have won only three of their last nine games across all competitions The positive from that is that each of those three wins were on home soil. But they won’t have faced anything quite like Manchester City this season of course. Swansea are W5 D2 in their last seven home games for the season, scoring at least two goals in four for their last five at the Liberty Stadium. In this season’s FA Cup, Swansea opened with a win at Aston Villa before defeating Gillingham and then Brentford both by a 4-1 scoreline back on home soil.

Manchester City News and Form

The Citizens have won their last four games on the bounce and they are undefeated in ten across all composition, winning nine of those. If you want to look back further they have suffered only the one defeat in their last nineteen games in all competitions. Out on their travels, they have won four of their last five (D1) and they have taken a clean sheet in three of their last five on the road. Manchester City have been firing off the goals in his season’s FA Cup. They have posted a 7-0 win over Rotherham, a 5-0 win over Burnley and last time out they beat Newport 4-1.

Who will win – Swansea v Manchester City Predictions

There should only be one winner from this contest and that, of course, should be Manchester City. The Citizens have the power in depth to get through this test at the Liberty Stadium. Will the Swans keep the score down? Man City to win by a two-goal margin is at 3/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 14th, 2019 at 8:39 p.m.).

Watford News and Form

The Hornets aren’t in bad current form at the moment. They have won four of their last six played (L2). The two defeats in what sequence happened in away games at Liverpool and Manchester City, which is nothing to be overly concerned about. So they are shaping up well and they have lost just one of their last six at Vicarage Road as well. So far in this season’s FA Cup Watford have played all of their games away from home, winning at Woking, Newcastle and QPR without having conceded a single goal. Can they make the best of home advantage in this one?

Watford v Crystal Palace Head to Head

Watford won both league games this season 2-1 against Palace
Watford are unbeaten in three at home against Palace (W1 D2)
Palace are without a win in three games against the Hornets
Palace won the last FA Cup meeting, a semi-final in 2016

Crystal Palace News and Form

The Eagles have been shaping up much better in 2019 than they had been over the first half of the season. They have lost only two of their last nine games in all competitions. Those two defeats were at home as well. They have been a bigger threat in their away games than at home. They did take a home win over Spurs in the fourth round of the FA Cup. Palace are on a three-match winning streak away from home in all competitions, unbeaten in four. They have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven on the road as well. Their only loss in their last seven away games (W5 D1) was at Liverpool in the league. They have only one clean sheet in five away from home though.

Who will win – Watford v Crystal Palace Predictions

This should be a close contest but Watford may just be able to get across the finish line. We see them being pushed all the way but home advantage may just swing it. Watford to win in the match outright at 13/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 14th, 2019 at 8:39 p.m.)

Doncaster v Crystal Palace Prediction & Betting Tips, 17th February 2019

Crystal Palace

Doncaster v Crystal Palace FA Cup Preview, 17th February 4.00pm

Doncaster are on a promotion push in League One and they will be eying up a great cup upset for themselves in this one. This could be a tricky away game for Premier League side Crystal Palace. Read our Doncaster v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.

Doncaster v Crystal Palace Betting Odds*

Crystal Palace 4/7
Draw 16/5
Doncaster 17/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 13th, 2019 at 3:34 a.m.)


Doncaster News and Form

Even though League One side Doncaster are taking on a top-flight opponent in Crystal Palace, there has been enough about the current form of Donnie to suggest that this FA Cup tie could be a pretty tight affair. Doncaster are on a promotion push in League One currently and they are undefeated in their last five games across all competitions. However it is their home form at the Keepmoat Stadium which really jumps out.

Doncaster have won eight of their last 10 home fixtures (D2) across all competitions. That some serious form and not only that, they have also scored at least two goals in each of the games in that unbeaten sequence. So does suggest that they can give a good account of themselves in this one and another trend with them is that they have also scored at least two goals in all five of their FA Cup matches played this season.

Crystal Palace News and Form

The last time a Crystal Palace made a trip to Doncaster they suffered a 1-0 defeat. That was in 2011/12 Championship season. How well Crystal Palace can handle themselves in this one because they haven’t been carrying very much away form? The Eagles are unbeaten in their last four games across all competitions, which includes their 2-0 home win over Tottenham in the last round of the FA Cup. However, there isn’t too much positive to be said about their away form.

Crystal Palace have lost seven of their last 11 away fixtures. They have only earned the one clean sheet in their last six away from Selhurst Park as well. So putting everything together and  it doesn’t look as if this is going to be a comfortable tie for them. One positive that can be said about their away form is that Palace have scored at least two goals in four of their last five on the road. But then again those clean sheets have been really hard to come by for them.

Doncaster v Crystal Palace Tips & Odds

Both teams to score at 10/11
Doncaster-draw double chance at 7/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 13th, 2019 at 3:34 a.m.)

Who will win – Doncaster v Crystal Palace Predictions

We have to have a look at an FA Cup upset happening somewhere, and this looks like prime fodder. Doncaster are in fantastic form at home, they have been scoring goals and are taking on a higher ranked opponent who have more had more than their fair share of away day blues.

Swansea v Brentford FA Cup Preview, 17th February 4.00pm

This is an all-Championship clash in the FA Cup and there may not be too much to split the two of them. Swansea are seven points better off in the league than the Bees are. Will home advantage here be enough for them to top Brentford in the FA Cup too? Read our Swansea v Brentford betting tips for more.

Swansea v Brentford Betting Odds*

Swansea 29/20
Brentford 19/10
Draw 9/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 13th, 2019 at 3:34 a.m.)


Swansea News and Form

It is Swansea then with the home soil advantage in this fifth round FA Cup tie, which features two Championship sides. It can often be hard to separate two teams going up against each other in the competition, coming from both the same division. However, there is a bit of a clear head-to-head advantage in the tie in favour of Swansea. The Swans are unbeaten in their last seven games against Brentford and have won their last five in a row against them.

Four of the last five wins that Swansea have produced over the Bees have been by a 2-0 scoreline, so there is a bit of a trend running there. They were out in action on Wednesday night in the Championship and the Swans suffered a defeat out at title contenders Leeds. The current form though at home at the Liberty Stadium in all competitions has seen Swansea post a W3 D2 record. Swansea have just two clean sheets in their last nine home games.

Brentford News and Form

Brentford were also in midweek action as they played host to Aston Villa, grabbing a late win. It is worth a closer look at their current away form though which doesn’t stand up to being anywhere near as good as their home form is. Brentford have taken just one victory in their last 16 games out on the road. They have only won twice on their travels all season across all competitions. So that is a bit of a negative against them. Generally when you aren’t winning away from home then you are probably having defensive issues.

Brentford have managed just the one clean sheet out on their travels this season. They have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three road games as well. Hopefully, in terms of this FA Cup tie being entertaining, each of Brentford’s last three road games have ended up over 2.5 goals. Plus while they have not been winning much away from home, they have only lost one of their last five on their travels (W1 D3 L1).

Swansea v Brentford Tips & Odds

Swansea to win to nil at 7/2
Under 2.5 goals at 19/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 13th, 2019 at 3:34 a.m.)

Who will win – Swansea v Brentford Predictions

We are sticking with one solid advantage here and the fact that the Swans have a good winning streak going over the Bees. Swansea to win to nil.

Bristol City v Wolves FA Cup Preview, 17th February 1.00pm

Bristol City aren’t the sort of side that any Premier League would want to be visiting at the moment. They have been in some sharp form. Will Wolves be able to handle themselves at Ashton Gate? Read our Bristol City v Wolves betting tips for more.

Bristol City v Wolves Betting Odds*

Wolves 17/20
Draw 5/2
Bristol City 16/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 13th, 2019 at 3:34 a.m.)


Bristol City News and Form

The Robins can’t stop winning games at the moment. The Championship side are on a tremendous streak of form. They took a 2-1 home win over QPR in league action on Tuesday night, their ninth win on the bounce. Looking back a little further at their form, they are undefeated in their last fifteen (W11 D4). That’s some pretty epic stuff.

They have won their last six games at Ashton Gate as well, shipping only three goals in that sequence (three clean sheets). The Robins have scored exactly two goals in each of their last four home games and are on a nine-match scoring streak at home. In this season’s FA Cup they knocked out Premier League side Huddersfield in the third round and then took out Bolton in the last round. Both of those wins were on home soil.

Wolves News and Form

Premier League side Wolves have been in good form. They got a late equaliser at home against Newcastle in the Premier League on Monday night, moving them onto a six-match undefeated streak of form (W4 D2). They have been scoring pretty well too as they have netted at least two goals in five of their last six played (a six-match scoring streak).

Wolves have suffered just the one defeat in their last six games on the road in all competitions, which was a league visit to Man City. Wolves have scored at least two goals in three of their last four away games. They have not, however, earned an away clean sheet in their last nine road fixtures. Wolves have lost two of their last three trips to Ashton Gate but took a 2-1 win on their last visit in the 2017 Championship.

Bristol City v Wolves Tips & Odds

Draw match outright at 5/2
1-1 correct score at 11/2

Who will win – Bristol City v Wolves Predictions

We feel that there should be enough in the home side to at least get a replay out of this. Bristol City are confident and the probably aren’t going to give Wolves an easy time of things. Draw.

Chelsea v Manchester United FA Cup Preview, 18th February 7.30pm

Only six Premier League sides entered the fifth round. Another one will definitely fall before the quarter-finals because of this top clash. It’s another tough game for Man Utd who have already had to deal with Arsenal in the competition. Chelsea certainly haven’t been without their problems recently but they get home advantage. Read our Chelsea v Manchester United betting tips for more.

Chelsea v Manchester United Betting Odds*

Chelsea 23/20
Man Utd 9/4
Draw 12/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 13th, 2019 at 3:34 a.m.)


Chelsea News and Form

This is the big one then of the FA Cup fifth round. Both sides and were in European action in midweek so had an extra workload ahead of this tie. The form of Chelsea hasn’t been particularly consistent and on the domestic front, they have taken a W4 L4 record in their last eight games across all competitions. It is worth noting that most of their problems have been away from Stamford Bridge, Chelsea are on a five-match winning streak on home soil, unbeaten in six there. Chelsea have also scored at least two goals in each of their last five home games.

From a defensive perspective, Chelsea have taken four clean sheets in their last six fixtures at Stamford Bridge. Will they be able to put it together on home soil? Overall this season, Chelsea have only lost one home game in all competitions, a Premier league defeat against Leicester back in December. It has been a fairly comfortable ride for Chelsea in the FA Cup so far this season, having taken back-to-back wins over Championship sides Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday at Stamford Bridge. Both of those Cup wins were with a clean sheet. Chelsea have produced good Cup form this season, having reached the final of the EFL Cup.

Manchester United News and Form

Manchester United have been to Stamford Bridge once already this season, playing out a 2-2 draw in the Premier League meeting back in August. This is a repeat of last season’s FA Cup final which Chelsea took a 1-0 victory in. Things are even though in the last five meetings with two wins each and a draw between them. Manchester United had their first taste of defeat under the interim management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as PSG beat them in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie on Tuesday. United did pick up a couple of injuries in the game to a couple of their speedy forwards Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.

Manchester United have great away form behind them having won each of their last six fixtures away from Old Trafford. The large part of the early season they were struggling defensively on the road, but they have now taken four clean sheets in their last five away games. They passed a big test in the last round of the FA Cup as they were out on the road at Arsenal, Manchester United prevailing by a 3-1 scoreline. The Red Devils had opened their account with a 2-0 victory over Championship side Reading in the third round. With their Champions League campaign looking in major jeopardy, and little chance at the Premier League title, the Red Devils have every reason to go hard at this big FA Cup tie at Chelsea.

Chelsea v Manchester United Tips & Odds

Both teams to score at 4/6
Over 2.5 goals at 4/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 13th, 2019 at 3:34 a.m.)

Who will win – Chelsea v Manchester United Predictions

Tough game to call. But frankly Manchester United look to have more about them pushing forward and they are taking on a fragile Chelsea defence. Away win.
