Real Madrid v Manchester City Preview And Predictions - Champions League Semifinals, 2nd Leg

An absolute thriller in the first leg saw Real Madrid manage to cling on in this tie despite being dominated for most of the game. Man City edged that leg 4-3, though on balance of play the result should have been far more convincing and Pep Guardiola's team will have to be at their very best if they are to overcome the La Liga Champions.

Recent Form

Pep Guardiola’s side are showing next to no signs of fatigue at this late stage in the season, especially in front of goal as they’ve managed to score 16 times across their last four outings alone. 

While a lot of focus is on Liverpool’s quadruple charge, a Champions League and Premier League double is still on the cards for City and that shouldn’t be understated, with Man United the last side to achieve that feat in 2008.

The English champions look to be coming into some form after three successive games without a win, and they’re now going for their fifth successive victory, which is a lot easier said than done at the Bernabeu.

Man City To Win

This stadium has long been a fortress of Real Madrid’s, though this season they’ve not been impenetrable, failing to win in almost a third of their games as they’ve gone W2-L2 across their last four outings, with Chelsea and Barcelona the sides to get the better of them, so it’s certainly not inconceivable that City can replicate that feat.

Real will be on a high having just won their record breaking 35th La Liga title with a 4-0 win over Espanyol, though they won’t have allowed celebrations to get too out of hand with a lot of work to do here, and on balance of play last week, we’d be surprised if they were to come up trumps here. 

They have a poor record against English sides recently, losing three of their last four such games while they’ve won just two of nine encounters with sides from England since they last won the Champions League, losing all three against City alone.

Gabriel Jesus To Score Anytime

Karim Benzema has been in exceptional form so far throughout this competition, scoring 10 of his side’s last 12 Champions League knockout goals.With the attacking talent on display we’d be surprised if this wasn’t another thrilling contest, and in the goal scorer market there’s none more likely than Benzema for the visitors, while for the hosts it’s hard to look past Gabriel Jesus who’s scored six in his last three games, netting at least once in each while he’s also netted on all three previous occasions he’s faced Los Blancos, so the bets remain the exact same as the winners we picked last week.
