Real Madrid

No one gave Real Madrid too many chances to succeed this season, especially after the defeat by Sheriff at home, but still, the team from Madrid finished the competition in the group stage in first place with fifteen points. Two matches against PSG followed, and after the defeat in Paris, it seemed that it was the end for the team from Madrid, but Karim Benzema made sure that it was not like that. Real then managed to eliminate Chelsea (much harder than expected, and again Benzema was the main player), but the main impression is that Real’s defensive line is the weakest part of the team, given the very easily conceded goals in the return match against Chelsea. The same situation happened in the first match against Manchester City, where the home team managed to score as many as four goals, but Real again, thanks to Benzema, managed to achieve an acceptable result before the return match. However, it is unrealistic to expect that Benzema could be a hero again, and for the placement in the finals it will be necessary for the rest of the team to give their contribution, considering that the opponent is probably the best team in Europe at the moment.

Manchester City

Manchester City finished the competition in the group stage relatively easily in the first place, and we must mention the fact that with as many as eighteen goals scored, they were one of the most efficient teams in that phase of the competition. They then eliminated Sporting without any major problems (win 5: 0 and draw 0: 0), and then followed probably the two most difficult matches for them this season. The opponent in the quarterfinals was Atletico Madrid, a very unpleasant team with a specific style of play, and Manchester City managed to secure a place in the semifinals thanks to a goal from the first match. Manchester City played the first match against Real Madrid as everyone expected – offensively. After only eleven minutes, they had a two-goal advantage, but they failed to maintain concentration, so they easily conceded three goals and allowed the Real Madrid team to decide on their placement in the final in front of their fans. During the elimination phase, Manchester City showed that they play much more carefully in rematch matches, so we will not be surprised if Guardiola’s coach decides to “defend” the advantage from the first duel, because the stakes are too high to risk a more open and offensive game.

Real Madrid vs. Manchester City Prediction

Real Madrid managed to win a new title in the domestic championship over the weekend, and it is interesting to note that coach Ancelotti decided to rest the two best players in that match – Benzema and Modrić.

This indicates that Real will again depend on the mood of the two mentioned players, and the really big question is whether that will be enough in a match against a team like Manchester City.

Manchester City finally have a nice chance to reach the Champions League final, and we are sure that Guardiola will not take too many risks, and it could very easily happen that we see a very aggressive game in tomorrow’s match in the defense of the visiting team. Although the first match was very efficient, we expect a slightly different match tomorrow.

The stakes are high, and we believe that both teams will play much more carefully, at least in the first half, and that the issue of placement in the Champions League finals will be resolved in the second half.
