Real Madrid vs Manchester City Preview

The pitch of Bernabeu will be lit up by yet another stunning Champions League night, as the Real Madrid host Manchester City in the first leg of the semi-final. The reigning champions reached the last four after a convincing victory against Chelsea, scoring 4 past them in the quarter-finals. Rodrygo has been the most inform player for Ancelotti’s side, helping them lift the Copa Del Rey after scoring a brace. The Brazilian also scored a brace in the second leg against Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-finals. Los Blancos have however not been in the greatest of form recently. Two losses in three league games have seen them drop to third behind Atletico Madrid in the La Liga table. With the league title almost done and wrapped up in Barcelona’s grasp, UCL will be of utmost priority for Ancelotti. Real Madrid have failed to reached the finals on only one occasion when they have reached the semis. With five wins in their last five UCL matches, optimism levels will be high at the Los Blancos camp. However, the absence of Eder Militao could see a three-game clean sheet streak in the UCL coming to an end.

Pep Guardiola will have his eyes on the terrific treble as Manchester City who look favorites to win the League and the FA Cup, face a mighty Madrid test. Things didn’t turn out as easy as they should have at the weekend, with Gundogan’s missed penalty amd Rodrigo’s goal for Leeds making it a close encounter than it actually was. City are now on a 20 game unbeaten streak in all competitions, with 17 wins and 3 draws. Pep will be hoping to lift the curse of Champions League semi-final exits as he holds the record for six semi-final exits along with Jose Mourinho. The most recent of those came against Real Madrid themselves, losing 7-4 on aggregate. However, despite Los Blancos’ dominance in Europe, Manchester City look favorites here to enter the finals as they seek their first Champions League Trophy.
