Manchester City vs Real Madrid was already the toughest encounter in Champions League but it has become more exciting after City nailed Madrid at their own backyard and how Madrid performed in the Classico. City have been excluded from the European competitions and they’ve also lost the Premier League to Klopp & Co. as well so it will be fireworks when Madrid will visit City. Because both teams have nothing to lease and will be in unforgiving and lethal. Both teams have a fine squad and one of the finest managers in the world. So this match will be remembered for ages when the two titans will lock horns.
City are two one ahead in the first leg and they don’t have any chance of winning the Premier League. But both teams are coming after two big wins, City just sealed the League Cup while Madrid are coming after sealing the El Classico.
Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Courtois; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Mendy; Valverde, Casemiro, Kroos; Bale, Benzema, Isco
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Fernandinho, Laporte, Mendy; De Bruyne, Rodrigo, Bernardo; Mahrez, Aguero, Sterling
Madrid will be without their star signing Eden Hazard who is out for the rest of the season with a broken ankle while Marco Asensio is also out due to knee injury.
Both managers have some decisions to make, Zidane will have to think whether he needs to recall Bale and Pep will have to choose one from Jesus and Aguero.
Conclusion It is going to be a very tough decision but Pep is the best manager in the world for a reason. He’s already been beaten in Premier League so there is no way he’s going to slip Champions League so easily. And apart from all that he is also going in with an away win. So it’s going to be a victory for City.
