It's a tale of two cities. Cardiff entertain their Mancunian namesakes, and you can follow it live with us.

So Cardiff could have had a big club visit them this weekend, but their Cup progress means the visit of Bolton has to wait for a couple of weeks. Instead, they have to welcome Man City. Warnock v Guardiola. That is, err, a clash of cultures.

Cardiff have previous, back in 1994 they knocked out Man City at Ninian Park at this stage. Nathan Blake was the hero that day. Man City's last trip down to Cardiff was an unhappy one too. Cardiff won 3-2 that day. Manuel Pellegrini is now in China, while Malky Mackay turned out not to like people from China.

There has been one tie played already today, Chelsea with a fairly easy 3-0 win over Newcastle, a Michy Batshuayi first-half double was followed up by a Marcos Alonso free kick in the second.

Here come the teams, the biggest gate for a club game at this ground for a good few years. Obviously there's been a few big nights for Wales in recent years.

Pep and Colin having a laugh as they come out of the tunnel. Lee Mason is the ref, so Bolton are still represented in Cardiff this weekend despite the rearranged league game

Before the game, applause for Jimmy Armfield and former Barnsley owner Patrick Cryne, who both passed away in the last week

Neil Warnock's High Flying Bluebirds kick us off. 0-0 (1)

Mendez-Laing absolutely left Danilo for dead, he gets a ball across but a poor touch from whoever was on the end of it. Lots of Man City posession early on though. 0-0 (4)
