Chelsea and Manchester City are playing for access to the final of the oldest national cup in the world: here's how to see, in Italy, the FA Cup semifinal.
This afternoon, April 17, 2021 starting at 18:30, the first semifinal of the FA Cup will be played, the national cup of the English soccer league that is also the oldest in the world: the first edition dates back to 1871. Chelsea and Manchester City will challenge each other in the mythical setting of Wembley Stadium.
Blues and Citizens, led by their respective coaches Thomas Tuchel and Pep Guardiola, do not intend to consider the national cup a minor trophy this season and it is therefore predictable a game played without discounts and at a high pace. It cannot be ruled out that we will have to go to extra time to decide who between Chelsea and Manchester City will access the 2020-21 FA Cup final, which will be played again at Wembley on May 15. Unfortunately, due to the strict anti-covid measures still in force in the UK, the match will be played behind closed doors and the spectacle offered on the field by the players will not be able to add the one typically offered by the fans of English soccer teams. In Italy you can watch the FA Cup semi-final between Chelsea and Manchester City live in streaming, here's how.
How to watch Chelsea-Manchester City FA Cup
The FA Cup TV rights are in the hands of DAZN, so it will be possible to watch the FA Cup semi-final between Chelsea and Manchester City only on this platform. Italian subscribers will be able to enjoy the commentary of Riccardo Mancini and Massimo Donati.
The match will be visible only in streaming through the DAZN app, available for the main smart TVs, for Sky Q, Google Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV Stick, consoles Xbox One, One S, One X, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 4 and 5. It will not instead be broadcast on the satellite channel DAZN1 at 209 of the Sky platform because, on the same channel, starting at 17:50 will be broadcast the challenge of the Italian Serie B Pordenone-Frosinone.
On the same platform, Sunday, April 18 at 19:30, will instead be broadcast the other FA Cup challenge between Leicester City and Southampton.
