Manchester City vs Real Madrid
Champions League
Date: Friday, 7 August 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Etihad Stadium.

Real Madrid will be looking to overturn a 2-1 first-leg deficit when they travel to Manchester City for the second leg of their last-16 Champions League contest on Friday night. City recorded an impressive victory when the pair met at the Bernabeu back in February, meaning that Madrid have plenty to do if they are to advance to the quarter-finals of the competition once again.

  • These two had met in the semi-finals of the 2016 edition of this competition. Then, the Los Blancos managed to get to the final, after posting an aggregate scoreline of 1-0.
  • Before that, they had met in the 2012 Group Stage. Then, the Spanish team won 3-2 at home, and drew the next fixture 1-1.
  • In fact, only once have the La Liga champions failed to score against this rival.
  • The Citizens are yet searching for their first win at this stadium.

Manchester City vs Real Madrid Prediction

The price of 31/10 (4.10) for Real Madrid to win any game of football is surely worthy of consideration, especially so with the side on a high having being crowned champions of Spain.

Of course they could win and still get knocked out, yet the odds for an away win will surely tempt plenty given the side’s pedigree in the competition
