Real Madrid – Manchester City : Preview & Prediction
In the opinion of many enthusiasts, this Real Madrid-Manchester City is one of the most beautiful posters of these knockout stages of the Champions League this season.
Opposed this Wednesday evening on the lawn of the Santiago Bernabeu, the two teams are among the favorites for the final victory in this 2019-2020 fiscal year, and should necessarily offer us an interesting spectacle, given the forces present. Between a club which is used to performing on the European scene, and another which should no longer see it for two years (UEFA sanction requires), the duel promises to be disputed, and the numerous opportunities in the capital Spanish.
Beaten by Levante in La Liga last weekend, the Merengues did not put themselves in the best possible arrangements to prepare for this match, they who have won only one of their last four duels, on the lawn of the modest Osasuna.
Manchester City side, the situation is slightly more positive, since the men of Pep Guadriola remain on a significant success on the lawn of Leicester in the Premier League (0-1), and had previously won without much difficulty against the Londoners of West Ham (2-0).
Unbeaten in the Champions League this season (4 wins, one draw), the English therefore appear to be slightly favored at kick-off, especially since they have had good performance in travel in recent weeks.
Winners of 4 of their last 5 trips (including those to Manchester United and Leicester therefore), will the Skyblues continue their momentum in Madrid? In any case, after its complicated matches against Bruges and PSG in the Bernabeu tournament, Real can really fear the worst this Wednesday. Advantage for City therefore, in a match that promises beautiful things.
Real remain on a draw (Celta Vigo) and a defeat (Levante).
Manchester City have won their last two games (West Ham, Leicester).
Far from Etihad, the English have beaten Manchester United, Arsenal, Shakhtar, or even Liverpool (Community Shield) this season.
All Manchester City games have had at least 2 goals in the tournament this season.
All Real Madrid games have had at least 2 goals in the tournament this season.
On the lawn of a Real Madrid in doubt, Manchester City could strike hard for qualification, and at least take the draw before receiving in the return match. Motivated by the idea of undermining his lifelong opponent, Pep Guardiola probably has something great in store for us, and that could translate into an XXL performance by Sterling, De Bruyne and other Aguero at the Bernabeu.
