Both Manchester City and Liverpool have booked UEFA Champions League semi-final spots in the mid-week. City survived a brutal second leg against Atletico Madrid while Liverpool escaped unscathed against Benfica despite a high-scoring draw.

On Sunday (April 10), at Etihad Stadium, Manchester City and Liverpool were happy to play out a draw and share the spoils. But at Wembley, one club will emerge victorious. And don't be surprised if their FA Cup semi-final goes the extra mile of extra time or even a penalty shoot-out. This fixture has become probably the biggest in club football in recent times, even eclipsing El Classico. 

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are eyeing a treble (Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup), while Jurgen Klopp's Reds, having already won the League Cup, can still complete a quadruple. Liverpool trail City by one point with seven matches to go in the league, and play Villarreal in a two-legged Champions League semi-final tie. City face Real Madrid in their own continental semis.

After the 1-1 draw at Wanda Metropolitano, which witnessed some ugly scenes towards the end, Guardiola said that City ar "in big trouble" due to injuries. Both Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker were forced off, and Phil Foden carried on with a bandaged head.

Liverpool are relatively in a safer space here. Klopp rested most of his key players in their 3-3 draw with Benfica at Anfield.

Manchester are on a ten-match unbeaten run and have lost only once since the turn of the year. Liverpool have also lost only once in 2022, and the draw at Etihad was the first time they dropped points in 11 league games.
