Paul Lambert’s men are still the favourites to reach Wembley as they are taking on League Two opposition, but a big performance is needed. Bradford will come here looking to be defensively savvy and then hit Villa on the counter attack.
The Midlands team are not in a good run of form and a trip to Wembley might be just what they need to give the whole club a bit of a boost.
If they can grab an early goal, then you would expect Lambert’s side to turn this tie around, but they have to remain solid at the back as Bradford can cause problems with some of their attacking players.
Phil Parkinson is incredibly proud of his team, whatever the result might be here on Tuesday night. However, he knows that many of his players will never get a better chance to play in a final of a domestic cup competition and won’t want all their hard work in the first leg to go to waste.
Bradford didn’t play at the weekend, so have had plenty of time to prepare themselves for this encounter and should come here in good physical shape. It is going to be a tough evening, but the Yorkshire side will fancy their chances of claiming another famous result.
Villa Park will be rocking for this one, with both sets of fans making plenty of noise.
On Wednesday, Swansea City take on Chelsea and have a very healthy 2-0 lead from the first leg.
The Swans know that if they remain well organised and continue their run of good performances, then they should reach the final.
Michael Laudrup will also be aware of the quality that Chelsea have at their disposal though and that his side have to be at their best for the entire 90 minutes.
The Swans played on Saturday, whereas the Blues were in action on Sunday, so the home side could be in better condition coming into this one.
Miguel Michu is once again likely to be the key man and if the service is right for him, then Swansea could put the tie to bed with an early goal.
The European Champions are sure to come and attack at the Liberty Stadium right from the off and could even start both Fernando Torres and Demba Ba on Wednesday. Ba was on the bench in the 2-1 win over Arsenal over the weekend, so he is sure to be in action in South Wales.
Chelsea are the underdogs, but will also be confident they can take this game to extra-time at the very least.
Both of these encounters look like being classics and if the tournament so far is anything to go by, then we are all but guaranteed plenty of goals and excitement.
