Manchester City vs. Real Madrid Predictions

Prediction, Odds & Betting tips for Manchester City vs. Real Madrid at UEFA Champions League

  • Where: Etihad Stadium, Manchester City, England
  • When: Wednesday, May 17, 9 pm CET

The entire Real Madrid fanbase was furious after the first meeting because of Kevin De Bruyne’s goal. The situation that preceded, with the ball going out of bounds, wasn’t noticed by the officials, and the aftermath of all that was the Belgian’s goal. Though, we don’t need to remind on how many occasions such things went in Real’s favor, and all this is, in fact, excellent for fans because there won’t be any calculations on the road. Both units are leveled and have to chase the win.

Manchester City vs. Real Madrid Preview

Manchester City

Once again, City dominated against Real but couldn’t capitalize on that. The Citizens have been very aggressive in the opening half, even though Haaland didn’t make some notable difference, Real scored from the first shot on target.

Meanwhile, one by one, the Citizens’ chances went to waste. It was incredible to see them so unease in the final third in front of Real’s goal, often either lacking composure or losing their focus. 

Though, a draw in Madrid was the 21st game in which Man City didn’t lose, which tells everything about their current shape—no need to explain more. Guardiola targeted City’s form perfectly.

Real Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti knows that his team has Benzema and Vinicius, meaning that these two need just one chance to score. And he often relies upon that in games like these ones. Vinicius scored right out of nowhere, outside the box in the moments when City controlled everything on the field. 

What unease the fans are the latest back-to-back losses on the road. After losing to Girona 4-2, they were defeated in San Sebastian by Real Sociedad, 2-0. Though, both of these failures came after Real gave up on the La Liga title chase. 

Los Blancos will be careful and cautious, laying back and waiting for the rivals to come out and leave some space behind. We’ve seen that strategy working well in the past.

Manchester City vs. Real Madrid Head to Head

The first game in this semifinals ended 1-1. Last year we saw the team from Madrid eliminating Man City; after 4-3 in Manchester, City had a 0-1 lead until the stoppage time when Rodrygo scored a brace to force overtime, and then Benzema added one more in the extra times to eliminate the English unit. 

Two years before that, City was better in the quarterfinals, winning both events with the same result, 2-1.

The Citizens looked as if they could do better than they played in Madrid, while on the other side, our opinion is that Real’s performance was near 100%. That’s why we pick the hosts to win.
