Replay. Ugh.

Manchester City and Huddersfield Town will go to a replay to see who advances to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup after a 0-0 draw on Saturday. Both teams played a boring match, and we'll need a second match to find out if City will move on to the sixth round.

FIRST HALF

The first half lacked quality, partially thanks to a terrible pitch, but both teams attacked and hurt one another. Huddersfield had some chances, mainly on the counter, but Claudio Bravo made some good saves.

The most dangerous side was City, however, and the visitors had a few dangerous trips to the Terries' territory, especially through a very good performance from Nolito, who was always involved in City's best moments during the first half. Sergio Agüero was also active and had a very good chance near halftime, but was stopped by the goalkeeper.

At halftime, City were playing solid football, but needed the goals in the final period to secure the victory and a place in the sixth round.

SECOND HALF

Almost nothing happened in the final period, even though both coaches made offensive substitutions to try to score and avoid a replay. They couldn't, and we'll see this teams again in a few weeks.
