Weekend Football Preview

European leagues continue to close and the FA Cup Final!

FA Cup Final

Man City vs. Watford

The FA Cup final takes place on Saturday as City play Watford. City are looking to complete the domestic treble as they look to add the FA Cup along with their League Cup and Premier League trophies. Watford have lost their last 3 games going into this final as they look to add a rare peace of silverware to cap off a decent season. Watford were looking for a top 10 finish but poor form saw them finish 11th in the table. On paper this should be a straightforward City win but anything can happen in a final and so Watford stand every chance.
