Manchester City vs Real Madrid – Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips 17/05/2023
Manchester City will welcome Real Madrid in the semi-final second leg of the Champions League and will only look to maintain their home record.
Prediction on Manchester City vs Real Madrid
We predict Manchester City to beat Real Madrid 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium, thanks to their superb home form in the Champions League this season. Man City drew against RB Leipzig and Bayer Munich in Germany but slaughtered them in England. They salvaged a 1-1 draw at Real Madrid in the first leg and since this is rather a pattern than a coincidence, we expect them to outclass inconsistent Madrid in Manchester.
Real Madrid may be the underdogs against Manchester City but they are increasingly likely to get on the scoreboard because both teams scored at least one goal each in each of their last five encounters, including the first leg that ended 1-1 at the Santiago Bernabue Stadium.
Match Preview on Manchester City vs Real Madrid
Manchester City have won their last two home matches against Real Madrid and both were Champions League games. Pep Guardiola’s men are unbeaten at home in this season’s UCL and they boast huge wins over RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich. Man City crashed out during their last encounter with Real after they lost 3-1 in Spain.
Real Madrid are no alien to crashing out English teams in the Champions League. This season already, they boast wins over Liverpool and Chelsea. Manchester City are the third Premier League giants they face in the knockout stages. It’s vital to understand that they won in their last two visits to England. They can make it three wins on a spin against City and that will be enough to inspire them to the final to face either Inter Milan or AC Milan.
Predicted Starting Lineups
Manchester City: Ederson, Akanji, Dias, Walker, Stones, Rodri, Grealish, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Silva, Haaland
Real Madrid: Courtois, Carvajal, Rudiger, Alaba, Camavinga, Valverde, Kroos, Modric, Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius
