Now to the game!
This clash seems to be the most mouthwatering of the weekend.
This match was initially supposed to take place on March 17 but was postponed due to the global pandemic.
The first match in the Santiago Bernabeu ended with a fantastic 1-2 victory by Pep Guardiola’s team.
But Zidane´s boys will want to overturn that result as they are searching for the “Orejona” their 14th European Cup.
This game will mark the first time since the 15/16 Champions League when they lost at Wolfsburg, where Real has lost the first leg.
Gareth Bale has been left out of the squad, captain Sergio Ramos is suspended, and Eden Hazard is a major doubt due to an injury.
Manchester City’s Argentinian superstar Sergio Aguero is currently sidelined due to a knee injury, and will probably be replaced by the Brazilian Gabriel Jesus, who scored in the first leg match. Mendy is suspended and can’t play, but it doesn’t seem like a significant loss since Zinchenko or Cancelo can replace him.
Manchester City has invested over £1 billion since the Abu Dhabi Group has taken over, and are expecting Guardiola to lead them to their first UCL title.
Fresh of securing the 2019/2020 La Liga title, Zidane will be eager to guide the “Los Blancos” to the 14th Champions League victory, having already won 3 Champions League titles between 2016-2018. And if you had to choose a manager for a big-time game, who better than Zidane.
However, let us not forget that Madrid will need a minimum of 2 away goals to progress, and Zidane’s men will be on the attack early, which might leave them exposed to Man City’s prolific front line.
Usually, Ziziou is a bit conservative with his away tactics, but here he has no choice but to attack from the start.
Will Pep’s side make them pay? Or will they fold under pressure, which they have so often done in the past?
And what is best bet for this game?
A Man City Win?
Over 2.5 Goals?
Both Team To Score?
