One of the best football tournament in the world in terms of the clubs presented there is the FA Cup, where every year not so well known teams of lower divisions try to defeat the top clubs. The fans prefer to monitor the free live football scores of the FA Cup matches starting with the qualification round, because the fierce struggle of weak teams for a place in the main draw is amazing and at the same time captivating.
All clubs are trying to demonstrate all their skills in order to compete for higher positions after the qualification or simply upset their principal rivals. Watching the free live football results of the matches of the Football Association Cup, you can never predict the score of a match, even at the final stage, where, it would seem, strong Premier League teams should easily beat their rivals from the lower divisions.
The current qualification round also pleases the viewers with dynamic pace, but for the draw of the main stage we need to wait for the results of the replay of only 5 matches: Slough – Chippenham, Wealdstone – Bristol MF, Bowers and Pitsea – Canvey Island, Weston-super-Mare – Kingstonian, and Hereford – Tamworth. It is after the end of these matches that the fate of the remaining teams will be decided, and we will soon find out the names of the opposing teams for the next round.
FA Cup results of the previous season
In the past tournament, Manchester City gained victory, because the head coach of the team Josep Guardiola immediately outlined the goals for his players – to win everything in the season. The team easily crossed the path to the finals, experiencing difficulties only in the quarter-finals and semifinals. The FA Cup results of Manchester City’s rival, Watford, were less impressive and challenging, however, like the last match for the Cup, during which the Citizens simply destroyed the Hornets – 6:0.
The best players according to the goal+pass system of the FA Cup were:
Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City) – 5+3;
Padraig Amond (Newport) – 5+1;
Ivan Toney (Peterborough) – 4+1.
The rest of the tournament was quite bright, with an abundance of beautiful episodes that pleased the fans from all over the world. The FA Cup results can tell you about the early departures of Liverpool, Arsenal and other representatives of the Premier League, but such results cannot be called sensations. This is because many clubs fought for more valuable trophies, and for some it was important to keep a place in the Premier League.
The rest simply could not find their game for a long time, and the FA Cup does not forgive this, because only one match is given to the teams to determine the winner. In case of a draw, a replay is possible, but only once. If there is equal score again, the teams will play extra time, if necessary, it comes to a penalty shootout.
A tense struggle is expected in the new FA Cup season, and no one guarantees top clubs a place in at least the quarter finals, because the competition is tough here, and the desire of all teams to please the fans is maximum.
