Manchester City – Real Madrid PREVIEW

  • After seeing off Iberian opponents in both prior knockout rounds (Sporting Lisbon and Atlético Madrid), Manchester City take on another in the form of Real Madrid in this UEFA Champions League (UCL) semi-final first leg. After their Gabriel Jesus-inspired 5-1 demolition of Watford kept them on top of the Premier League at the weekend, taking on the 13-time European champions will surely be a sterner test.
  • Playing at home in the first leg helped against Atlético (W 1-0), in what turned into City’s fifth consecutive European home game against Spanish opponents without defeat (W4, D1) – a run that includes a 2-1 H2H victory over Real Madrid here back in August 2020. Although the ‘Cityzens’ have injury and fitness concerns over several defenders, they’ve only conceded twice across their last four UCL home fixtures and possess an even H2H record at all venues (W2, D2, L2).
  • As Madrid move closer to the La Liga title after beating Osasuna 3-1 last time out, they’ve injury problems of their own with David Alaba and Casemiro to undergo late fitness tests. However, after keeping just one clean sheet in seven competitive fixtures (W5, L2), their much-vaunted attacking line-up may feel under pressure to perform here if they’re to avoid a repeat of last season’s two H2H defeats.
  • Having led his side to a 3-1 away win over last season’s UCL champions Chelsea earlier this month, manager Carlo Ancelotti will hope for a repeat against last term’s runners-up. ‘Los Blancos’ should take some confidence from claiming their first win in four attempts in England (D1, L2) with that Chelsea triumph, although they’ve never won at this venue (D2, L1).
  • Players to watchKevin De Bruyne struck the only goal in Man City’s quarter-final tie, and he opened the scoring in four of his last five goalscoring outings. Meanwhile Vinícius Júnior created one goal in each of Madrid’s last three UCL games.
  • Hot stat: Madrid have scored an average of 2.75 goals per game across their last four UCL away fixtures (W3, L1).
