Game Preview


On Wednesday night, the second leg of Manchester City and Real Madrid’s Champions League semifinal, which saw two individual flashes of brilliance at the Santiago Bernabeu, will resume hostilities at the Etihad Stadium. After a 1-1 draw in the Spanish capital, the teams meet again at the Etihad, but only one of them may conclude the 2022–23 campaign as the league champion and king of Europe.


Priority one for Man City’s treble contenders was to avoid losing at the Bernabeu, and they easily handled a potentially tricky Premier League match against Everton at the weekend. They will undoubtedly enter Wednesday’s second leg as favorites.


Man City, who have a 22-game unbeaten streak to defend, have an incredible 15-match winning streak at the Etihad Stadium in all competitions. They have scored at least twice in 14 of those games, and they haven’t lost a Champions League game at home since September 2018.


Let’s check the latest picks, Champions League news, stats and Champions League expert picks for Man City vs Real Madrid. We’ve plenty of Champions League predictions for you to consider.


Though streaks and statistics are meaningless to a side with 14 major European championships under their belt, Real Madrid has an extra motive to add another blemish to Man City’s continental record this week after the La Liga crown was wrested from them.


With a 1-0 victory over Getafe thanks to Marco Asensio’s 20-yard goal, Los Blancos did what they could to prevent Barcelona from winning the league, but La Blaugrana’s derby victory over Espanyol on Sunday evening solidified Barca’s position atop the standings.


It’s safe to say that Man City would absolutely prefer a repeat of last season’s 4-3 Etihad extravaganza lest they risk forming an unfavorable trifecta with their Big Six rivals, while Real have failed to win on the Citizens’ ground in four previous attempts. The winner of Wednesday’s tantalizing battle of the titans will receive a date in Istanbul with either Inter Milan or AC Milan.
