– Aston Villa vs Manchester City Carabao Cup final ended in favour of the defending champions
– A goal each from Sergio Aguero and Rodri were enough to help Pep Guardiola’s men retain the title they won last year
– Meanwhile, Samatta’s strike ended up as a mere consolation as Villa could not dig deep to find another goal Manchester City are the Carabao Cup champions for the third consecutive time following their 2-1 win over fellow Premier League outfit Aston Villa at Wembley Stadium. Two first-half goals from Sergio Aguero and Rodri were all the Citizens needed to win the title back-to-back-to-back.
Pep Guardiola’s men have now won the title for the seventh time – only Liverpool have more EFL Cup trophies more than City.
Although Villa put in their best to ensure they secure an equaliser towards the end of the meeting, the defending champions did well to maintain their lead until the final whistle. Claudio Bravo to the rescue as Bjorn Engels’ goal-bound effort was saved by the former Barcelona goalkeeper.
