This time we hope to see a more productive match with lots of dangerous moments. Read our thoughts about this long-waited UEFA Champions League Real Madrid vs Manchester City game and get the best betting advice here below.
Real Madrid vs Manchester City
Los Blancos struggling since the beginning of the season and have good and bad stages so far. Even standing at 2nd place in Spanish La Liga, this team is far from their best football and shows lots of weaknesses recently. During the whole season in LL, they lost only twice, and the last time was against Levante a few days ago. Surprisingly, at Estadi Ciutat de València, Real Madrid failed to finish all dangerous moments and lost the game with 0:1 result. That was the only second defeat in La Liga and 4th during this season. Earlier they lost to Real Sociedad a few weeks ago in Copa del Rey.
In Champions League group stage they lost once to Paris Saint Germain and took the second place. Now they have to play against one of the most dangerous and strong teams in the World Manchester City, which should be very interesting Zidane and Guardiola confrontation. At Santiago Bernabeu, The Meringues lost only to Real Sociedad and were very confident playing against other Grands like PSG, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid or Sevilla. Unfortunately, long-waited Eden Hazard will miss one more important game right after coming back earlier after a long injury break. Moreover, Asensio will also watch this game from the Stadium bench.
Citizens after a great last season in Premier League and weaker in UEFA Champions League tries to reach the highest achievements in Europe this year. At the moment, they stand at second place in PL and very likely will not reach Liverpool this time, as they made in 2018/19 season. Surprisingly, they have faced already 6 defeats only in English highest league. Moreover, they lost against Manchester United in EFL Cup Semi-Final, however, reached the final due to 1st leg result. In general, they have a questionable, but still strong season in England.
The Sky Blues totally concentrated on UEFA Champions League, and group stage result proves that. They won 4 and drew 2 games finishing at 1st place. Pep Guardiola targetting the UCL title for sure, so they are fully prepared and ready to face one of the legends of this tournament. Unfortunately, the young German Leroy Sane will miss the next game. Also, Raheem Sterling (the most dangerous player of Man City this season in CL) will probably miss this game too.
