Real Madrid v Man City preview: Watch Champions League on TV, live stream, prediction

Manchester City travel to face Real Madrid in a firecracker Champions League showdown in Spain

Man City

Manchester City play their first match in a European competition since they were struck with a two-year continental competition ban by UEFA.


City plan to appeal the decision, but in the meantime, they will hope to make the most of the current campaign.

Pep Guardiola has tasted Champions League glory before, though it remains elusive for City since they joined the heavyweight ranks.

Real Madrid have wobbled in their last two games without a win, but have enjoyed a largely terrific season under Zinedine Zidane having lost just twice in La Liga.

Hold onto your hats, this one could get messy.

Neither side will be looking forward to facing each other so soon in the knockout stages but can either team efficiently defend a lead against a world class attacking line-up?
