Manchester City will visit Madrid in what is probably the most anticipated game at this stage of the competition.

Both teams will look to start strong and they come in adverse form. City is coming off two wins after a short winter break. While, Madrid have struggled all month most lately losing to Levante in the past weekend.

Something will have to give since Madrid are known to turn it up extra for the Champions League. It should be a close and tight game as Pep Guardiola takes on old foe Zinedine Zidane.

Team News:

Raheem Sterling is expected to be available, Leroy Sane will not be available.

Marco Asensio and Eden Hazard are both injured for Real Madrid.


A strong side by City and some notable injuries to Madrid give me the feeling Pep and company can pull together a victory. I see City sneaking out a win.

Manchester City 1-0 Real Madrid
