Comments before the match Man City vs Real Madrid

Man City rose strongly in the second half of the season. Pep Guardiola’s team just had a 5-1 victory over Luton and rose to first place in the Premier League rankings. That was Man City’s 27th unbeaten match in all competitions. After completing their mission in the Premier League, Man City will return to the Champions League arena and welcome Real Madrid at Etihad Stadium.

Man City are in terrible form at home, they have not lost here since the beginning of the season. Therefore, Pep Guardiola’s army is rated higher than Real Madrid before the second leg. Last season, Man City crushed Real Madrid 4-0 at Etihad’s home field. History also supports the representative from England, Man City lost only 1 of the last 13 matches in the Champions League against Spanish teams (8 wins and 4 draws).

On the other side of the front line, Real Madrid had a pretty good run before the match with Man City. Los Blancos won 1-0 against Mallorca and still maintained an 8-point gap with second-place team Barcelona in La Liga. A number of Real Madrid’s key players were given a rest in the recent match in order to be in the best shape in the Champions League. Real Madrid is still maintaining stability in the 2023/2024 season, Los Blancos have only received 2 defeats since the beginning of the season. Those were all defeats to Atletico Madrid in the Copa Del Rey and La Liga.

Real Madrid played very well in the first leg, Carlo Ancelotti ‘s team caused many difficulties for Man City. But the home team at Bernabeu only got a 3-3 draw and they are clearly at a disadvantage when they have to play the second leg at Etihad Stadium. There is a sad statistic for Real Madrid that is that Los Blancos have never defeated Man City at Etihad Stadium. It seems that the Royal Spanish team will continue to face many difficulties during their trip to Manchester.
