Preview

Man City won at Madrid 2-1 and will look to keep the lead as Madrid are missing their captain and leader, Sergio Ramos.

An almost full squad means City will be raring to go.

Madrid meanwhile, can never be counted out and with an in form Karim Benzema could be very dangerous. Ultimately, I believe this game will come down to focus and execution and whoever nails both will advance. The ball is at home and Man City must rise to the occasion.

Team News

Pep Guardiola is expected to have the majority of his squad available for the match with the only exception being Sergio Agüero, who remains hopeful of playing some part in Portugal.

Benjamin Mendy will be also unavailable for selection, with suspension due to an accumulation of yellow cards.

Gareth Bale failed to make Real Madrid’s 24 man traveling squad along with James Rodriguez, and Mariano who tested positive for COVID-19 last week. Sergio Ramos has travelled with the Madrid squad to Manchester, but is unable to play any part in the game after being sent off for denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity in the first-leg.

Prediction

Manchester City 2-0 (4-1 agg.) Real Madrid
