The 2023 FA Cup is a big upset.
5-seeded Wrexham have just beaten 2-seeded Coventry City. His 4-3 win on Saturday ensured the club advanced to the fourth round of his FA Cup. Coventry City are his second highest football league in England, he plays in the EFL Championship, so this is a big upset. Wrexham, meanwhile, plays in the National League, his fifth highest football league in England. His three league gap between the two clubs is therefore absolutely huge.
