After the dust settles in the Superliga, English football is back to focus on what happens on the pitch. It will take place on Sunday (4/23), Manchester City and Tottenham, Carabao Cup, English League Cup, starting at 12:30 pm. ESPN Brasil announced the broadcast.
The match is one of three Test events the British government is organizing in the United Kingdom to verify the viability of the fans’ return to the stadium. Last weekend, Wembley was opened to 4,000 fans to watch the FA Cup semi-finals between Lebester and Southampton. This weekend, the huge English stadium will hold 8,000 fans.
For Tottenham’s London fan, a win against Guardiola’s men in the final would mean a 13-year immoral hunger strike. The last cup picked by the Spurs was the League Cup in the 2007/2008 season.
Since then, the club has become one of the most powerful clubs in England and Europe. It has a modern training center, a billion-dollar private stadium, the largest in London and a sponsorship that earns $ 50 million annually. However, the structure was not translated into achievements, despite being a frequent hit on the post: Tottenham were runners-up in the Premier League in 2016/17, losing two League Cup finals in 2008/09 and 2014/15, and that Liverpool lost in the 2018/19 Champions League decision.
This season, the team seems to have taken a step backward. He dropped out of the FA Cup and Europa League and is only 6th in the Premier League. The dismissal of Jose Mourinho resulted in poor results, making Tottenham the first club with which the Portuguese coach failed to secure a win. Assistant 29-year-old Ryan leads the team against Mason City.
Will there be dynasty?
Like Tottenham, Manchester City also recently reorganized. Unlike this Sunday’s rival, however, the citizens managed to translate the investment into a new shelf full of trophies.
Since Sheikh Mansoor bin Zayed Nahan chose Manchester’s blue side to dump his petrodollars in 2008, the formerly modest English club has become a powerhouse, winning four Premier League, two England Cups and five English League Cups (it The current one is three- time champions), in addition to modernizing its stadium, relying heavily on facilities and community investment.
In the current season, Guardiola’s men have their hand in the cup to win their third Premier League in four years, despite their dream of a quadruple crown with a defeat by Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals, they are in the semi-finals. The league – the club’s top dream – and could win its fourth consecutive League Cup against Tottenham this Sunday.
