Newcastle overpowered Manchester City in ‘Isak’s winning goal…Round of 16 in the League Cup
Newcastle United has advanced to the round of 16 in the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) after defeating Manchester City.
Newcastle defeated City 1-0 on aggregate in the third round of the 2023-24 League Cup at St. James’ Park in Newcastle, England, on Monday (Aug. 28).
With the win, Newcastle advances to the Round of 16, where they will face defending champions Manchester United in the quarterfinals. United had beaten Crystal Palace 3-0 the day before.
It was City’s first defeat in nine games. City had been unbeaten in eight games, including one penalty shootout win, since losing to Arsenal on penalties in the Community Shield last month.
Newcastle struggled against City, managing just one shot on target in the first 45 minutes. The Magpies brought on Bruno Guimarães and Anthony Gordon at the start of the second half to try and get some momentum going.토토사이트
Eventually, Newcastle took the lead eight minutes into the second half when Alexander Isaacs was set up by Joelington. Joelington beat two City defenders before crossing the ball to the other side where Isaac calmly finished.
Newcastle defended for the remainder of the game, protecting their one-goal lead to secure the win. City’s Elling Holland was named to the substitutes’ bench but did not play.
While City were eliminated, the big favorites survived.
Arsenal held off Brantford 1-0, while Chelsea also beat Brighton and Hove Albion 1-0.
Liverpool advanced to the round of 16 with a 3-1 win over second-tier Leicester City.
