Bookmaker Ratings prediction one – Home win – 1.50

Bookmaker Ratings prediction two – 1X and Totals Goals under 3.5 – 1.69

Home win

A match between two very similar teams, as both sides are in impressive shape and at a very even level.

However, we see Pep Guardiola’s side as favourites for this fixture, mainly because they are playing at home. Moreover, for Man City are too important to earn a first leg advantage on Tuesday night before travelling to Madrid.

To point out, the Cityzens have won their last 2 fixtures against Real Madrid in the Champions League.

1X and Total Goals under 3.5

The first thing that comes to mind is both Man City and Real Madrid like and know how to impose pressure. Both teams are going through their best moment of the season, with a very attacking style of play. Even though they are two teams whose games lately are having a high average of total goals per match, we think that this match will be close, but Man City will win by the minimum against Ancelotti’s side.

In addition, there have been under 2.5 goals scored in Man City‘s last 3 UCL fixtures. 

Preliminary review and match prediction for Manchester City vs Real Madrid

Manchester City come into this match off the back of a stunning victory in the Premier League.

City crushed Watford 5-1 at home on Saturday thanks to poker from Gabriel Jesus to move four points clear at the top of the PL.

Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola’s side won their previous UCL tie, beating Atletico Madrid 1-0 on aggregate in the quarter-finals. After earning a 1-0 victory in the first leg at Etihad Stadium, they played out a 0-0 draw in Spain. It is important to note that in the second leg fixture, City was not easy. Even though the Cityzens had more possession of the ball, Atlético had many opportunities to score, but that evening the fortune was on the side of the English team.

On the other hand, Real Madrid players had more time to rest than City, who will host Los Blancos after having EPL fixture on Saturday.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side won their previous UCL tie, beating title holders Chelsea 5-4 on aggregate in the 1/4 finals. Real Madrid advanced to the semi-finals despite a 3-2 loss in the second leg and being completely outplayed for much of the match.

To point out, the visitors come into this game on the back of a win on Wednesday night against Osasuna (3:1), extending their four-match undefeated run in La Liga.
