Manchester City vs. Real Madrid Predictions

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

  • Where: Etihad Stadium, Manchester, England
  • When: Thursday, April 18, 03:00 AM

The festival of goals at Bernabeu is a great intro for the upcoming 90 minutes in England, which will decide who advances to the UEFA Champions League semis. City plays at home, but that’s not a big deal here, especially with Real on the other part of the court. After all, Los Blancos are the most successful team of all in the most prominent European club competition.

Manchester City vs. Real Madrid Preview

Manchester City

The Citizens are pleased with the result of the first match. After all, that game could have gone either way. At one point, they had everything in their hands, and at the other, they were in a pretty nasty position. 

Guardiola needs to make certain adjustments in the back line because his team showed weaknesses in that area. We understand that Vini and Rodrygo are world-class players, but three goals conceded are still too many. Overall, they’ve allowed at least one goal in seven of the past nine games.

City didn’t lose for the past 26 events. Their attack is on fire with 11 goals scored in the previous 270 minutes of play. Haaland was invisible in Madrid, yet his presence on the field opened the space for other of his teammates. 

Real Madrid

Los Blancos showed resilience and quality and now head to England without fear. Furthermore, after hitting City’s back of the net three times, we believe that Ancelotti’s youngsters are pumped up even more than before the first leg. 

If the strikers, particularly Vinicius, hadn’t been selfish and distressed in front of City’s goal, we are pretty sure that Real could have won that match. In some situations, Vini is not rational, but overall, his contribution to the team is incredible. That assist to Valverde was a masterpiece.

The previous three road games Real had were all with both teams netting. All of them were in La Liga, where Los Blancos pretty much secured the title. However, that shows certain issues in their defense as well.

Manchester City vs Real Madrid Head to Head

Since 2020, these two units have met seven times, and only one game didn’t see three or more goals. The same goes for both teams netting. 

The first leg in Madrid ended without a winner, 3-3, with the guests taking the lead. Real then flipped the result, and City responded the same before Los Blancos’ equalizer. Dias (own goal), Rodrygo, and Valverde netted for the hosts, while Silva, Foden, and Gvardiol scored for City.
