Champions League: Real Madrid vs Manchester City

Real Madrid vs Manchester City Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second leg of the semi-finals in the UEFA Champions League, Real Madrid host Manchester City at Santiago Bernabeu. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for the match between Real Madrid vs Manchester City.


Real Madrid failed to beat Manchester City in the first leg, despite the fact that they have created few very good chances, the match was finished without goals. This time they are playing at home, upfront their supporters, and they are big favorites to qualify in the final of the UEFA Champions League. Meanwhile, Real Madrid have managed to beat Real Sociedad in Primera Division and they are still in a race for the title, two rounds until the end of the season, but for them this match is more important. Cristiano Ronaldo, who missed the last three games in all competitions, including the first leg against Man City, has recovered from an injury and will be ready for this game, but Benzema is still out. Real Madrid have already played against Manchester City in the Champions League, four years ago, but in the group phase of that competition. In Manchester the match was finished without winner 1-1, while at home Real beat them 3-2. This will be the different game than the first one in England and home side are the big favorite to go through, but they will have to show that on the pitch.

Manchester City can be happy after the first leg and the result 0-0. They have some good chances, but visitors were more dangerous, so home side could be happy because they didn’t concede a goal. Now, they are playing away and it they want to reach the final they have to score tonight, because every result in which they score and not lose would lead them in the final. In the last match in Premier League, Southampton beat them 4-2, but Man City were thinking about this game and their coach Manuel Pellegrini has rested few important players for this game. Their main goal in their domestic league is to finish the season in the Top 4 and play in the Champions League next season, but in this moment they are focused on this game and will be fully motivated to go through. If they want to go through, they have to score, but if they want to score, they have to play open and attacking football, which can be very dangerous.
