Marvelous Nakamba’s Aston Villa is set to play UEFA 2018/2019 Uefa Champions League Champions, Liverpool for the Carabao Cup quarterfinals.
Villa proceeded to the quarterfinals after beating English Premiership side, Wolves 2-1 whilst Liverpool won against Arsenal last night in penalty shoot outs after a ten-goal thriller draw.
The teams are yet to play each other in the EPL this season. Liverpool is on top of the log whilst the newly promoted Villa is following at a distant 15th.
The clash is scheduled for the mid of December but is likely to be played in January since Liverpool will be participating in the Club World Championship in Qatar.
Meanwhile, Aston Villa fans believe their team will overcome Liverpool considering that Liverpool will have a lot at its table including the Uefa Champions League, EPL and other cups.
Usually, the break makes most teams struggle or lose form in January and Villa is also banking on that.
