We go again. Manchester City head into battle against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu this week with their Champions League semi-final tie hanging in the balance.


City drew first blood with a 4-3 victory on home soil but Real Madrid simply refused to back down. Karim Benzema scored twice, including an outrageous Panenka penalty at 4-2 down, to haul his team back into contention.

Pep Guardiola will be keen for his men to approach the second leg with the same devastating attacking prowess they displayed at the Etihad. Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden were among the brightest lights for City, while Gabriel Jesus is firmly back among the goals.

However, former Barcelona boss Guardiola – who will face an inevitably hostile reception at the Bernabeu – will be eager for his side to keep close watch over Benzema given his devastating form

Real Madrid celebrated winning the La Liga title at the weekend meaning they can open the taps and pour all their remaining focus into this Champions League blockbuster.

Our prediction: Real Madrid v Man City

The first leg was the Champions League at its finest. Calls to reshuffle or decimate the format look foolish when games like the Etihad epic come along. And they come along with great frequency in this competition.

More like this

All signs point to another glittering night in the Champions League but this could be the night Madrid's resolute spirit is broken.

They soldiered back from a first-leg defeat to PSG, they soldiered back from 3-0 down to claw their way beyond Chelsea, and now they face their toughest test.

City are a different beast to those who came before them in the knockout rounds, however. Foden, De Bruyne, Jesus, Bernardo Silva, Riyad Mahrez could all start here and they are desperate to wrap their hands around Europe's greatest prize.

Our prediction: Real Madrid 2-3 Man City (18/1 at Bet365)
