The Carabao Cup semi-finals get underway on Sky Sports this week but who is Charlie Nicholas tipping to seize the advantage?

League One Burton travel to defending champions Manchester City on Wednesday, just days after Pep Guardiola's side routed Championship Rotherham in the FA Cup.

Here, the Soccer Saturday pundit gives his take on the tie.

Congratulations Burton, but this is where it ends! Pep has turned around and said: 'We're going after four [trophies]'. He was brought to deliver Champions League but a truly great club goes after everything. He went after it at Barcelona and he didn't quite make it at Bayern.

He will want his side to win the game by three or four and leave the big boys on the bench. No disrespect but, like in the FA Cup, I think it will be done. Nigel Clough has done a fantastic job but the cup run ends here.
