Bradford City vs Aston Villa, League Cup Semi-Final 1st Leg: Open Thread

Despite Aston Villa’s disappointing Premier League season thus far, the club is just two games away from being in a Wembley final against the winner of Chelsea-Swansea. But first, Villa has to travel to Valley Parade where they play today in the first leg of the League Cup at 2:45pm ET (live on beIN SPORT).

Bradford qualified for the semi-final after beating Arsenal on penalty kicks. Aston Villa, meanwhile, beat Norwich City 4-1 at Carrow Road in the last round, where Villa manager Paul Lambert was able to “do one over” on his former club.
