Real Madrid vs. Manchester City Preview

Real Madrid

The Los Blancos officially gave up on La Liga, and their focus is now on the UEFA Champions League title. Ancelotti deliberately moved the foot off the gas in the domestic championship, trying to protect his team from any injuries and keep them fresh for the upcoming challenges. 

Real’s defense has been experiencing problems in the past three events, but that isn’t disturbing because of all the written above. So we can expect Los Blancos at the highest possible level on Tuesday. 

Los Blancos are pretty confident at home, where they have six wins in the past seven events, in all but one scoring at least twice. Throughout that stretch, we’ve seen them netting 20 times. 

Manchester City

Erling Haaland broke another record, this time scoring his 35th goal in the Premier League on Wednesday night and recording the best season for one striker in England ever. So, we can say that the Norwegian is in excellent form. 

His Citizens haven’t lost since early February, and are on a rampage, smashing and bashing any team that stands in their way. Many say that this year’s Man City has been the best since Guardiola took over the wheel.

Regarding games away from the Etihad Stadium, City is without a defeat since Tottenham, which was almost three months ago. They’ve been posting good performances, with six triumphs and three draws. Though, they’ve kept clean sheets just twice.

Real Madrid versus Manchester City Predictions

This will be a good game because of the offensive potential on both ends. The respective defenses are struggling to gain consistency, while on the other hand, the attacks are on fire and exceptionally efficient, which is why over 2.5 goals is the best pick. 

Our verdict: Over 2.5 goals
