Manchester United Are Struggling To Sell Out Old Trafford For Semi-Final Against Man City

There will be hundreds, if not thousands, of empty seats at Old Trafford this evening as Manchester United host Manchester City in the Carabao Cup semi-final.

After failing to sell out in the weeks prior to Tuesday's tie, a huge amount of tickets are currently on general sale via the club's official website.

But with just hours before kick-off, there are still large sections of Old Trafford empty.

It is expected around 70,000 fans will attend tonight's cup tie, according to the BBC.

The lack of ticket sales means that United have been forced to release a statement warning anyone who is "visibly or audibly" supporting Manchester City in a home area of Old Trafford will be ejected.

"We have a series of measures in place to minimise any risks and anyone visibly or audibly supporting the away team in home areas will be denied entry to the ground or ejected during the game." United said.

Despite the fact United won't be at full capacity tonight, the predicted attendance for this huge clash against Pep Guardiola's side is expected to be the highest for a Carabao Cup tie in years.

Back in 2010, a total of 74,576 fans attended their semi-final game against Manchester City.

But the club have failed to reach that mark since, although tonight's cup tie may come close.

Who do you think will come out top tonight? Can Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side pull off another shock win against a potentially full strength City?

Let us know in the comments.
