Newcastle’s hopes of giving their long-suffering fans a first major trophy since 1955 were not helped by drawing holders Manchester City.
The Magpies have scrambled their way to the last eight while City, unsurprisingly, have had a far more straightforward route as they look to defend the trophy.
Punters can get 1/2 for an away win and over 2.5 goals in the match and that is our first Newcastle vs Man City prediction.
