Manchester City vs Real Madrid Betting Tips

Manchester City will be looking to defend their 2-1 lead over Real Madrid when they host the Spanish champions in the second leg of their Last 16 Champions League tie.

Goals from Gabriel Jesus and Kevin de Bruyne sealed a famous win for City away at the Bernabeu. However, a lot has changed since that February evening encounter with both sides enjoying a varying amount of success.

While Real Madrid enjoyed an 11-match unbeaten run to claim the La Liga title, Manchester City had to surrender the Premier League crown to Liverpool before bowing out of the FA Cup to eventual winners Arsenal.

Despite this, the bookmakers have priced the hosts as the 7/10 favourites while demoting Real Madrid to an unfamiliar status of underdogs at the current price of 31/10.

One explanation may be City’s encouraging home form. Since the season resumed in England, Pep Guardiola’s men won all six of their games at the Etihad; scoring 24 goals and conceding one in the process.

This is an impressive run of results however, Real will not be easily intimidated especially considering their own away form.

Since the season resumed in Spain, Zinedine Zidane’s men are unbeaten in their five away games having won four and drawn one.

While Los Blancos may not have been scoring as many goals as their English counterparts, Real have proved hard to break down and well organised at the back.

The absence of Sergio Ramos will certainly make life hard for the Madrid outfit however, with the side currently available at 31/10, our recommendation has to be to back them.

What’s more, with City possessing a sketchy history in the Champions League, it certainly makes this outright bet jut that little bit more alluring.

    Manchester City 2 - 1 Real Madrid - Match Report

    Manchester City knock Real Madrid out of Champions League

    Manchester City stunned Real Madrid for a second time to claim a deserved place in the Champions League quarter-finals with a 2-1 victory at the Etihad Stadium.

    Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus took advantage of Raphael Varane errors to strike either side of a Karim Benzema equaliser and complete a 4-2 aggregate victory over the 13-time winners.

    After a gap of more than five months between the two legs of a pulsating tie due to the coronavirus pandemic, City will now go forward to the newly-arranged last-eight tournament in Lisbon next week, when they will face Lyon.

    Despite the match being played behind closed doors, City looked pumped up from the outset and determined to pull of a repeat of their famous victory at the Bernabeu in February.

    They benefited from two horrendous errors from Varane but their relentless intensity gave the newly-crowned Spanish champions little time to settle.

    City manager Pep Guardiola put his faith in Phil Foden to start ahead of veteran David Silva and had a bigger surprise in store by initially deploying the 20-year-old as a false nine.

    That meant Jesus pushed out on to the right and the Brazilian immediately made his presence felt by forcing the mistake that led to Sterling’s ninth-minute opener.

    Real made a mess of an attempt to play out from the back and Varane – whose regular defensive partner Sergio Ramos was a vocal presence in the stands only due to suspension – dwelt too long in possession.

    Jesus barged him off the ball too easily and quickly squared for an unmarked Sterling to tap home his 100th City goal.

    It was a dream start for the hosts and Sterling went close again with a shot that dipped just over soon after.

    Real threatened for the first time when the dangerous Benzema turned Aymeric Laporte on the edge of the area but Ederson beat away his powerful drive.

    Ederson also dealt comfortably with another effort from Eden Hazard, who was passed fit after more ankle trouble, but Real enjoyed a good spell and levelled after 28 minutes. Benzema did the damage with a powerful header after Rodrygo got to the byline.

    City refused to sit back in response and Kyle Walker shot over before Joao Cancelo tested Thibaut Courtois from distance.

    Courtois then got away with an error as a clearance went straight to Kevin De Bruyne but Foden shot narrowly wide.

    Courtois made amends for that early in the second half after De Bruyne slipped Sterling in behind the defence with a superb pass. The keeper reacted brilliantly as Sterling struck left-footed from a tight angle, palming away for a corner.

    De Bruyne threatened himself soon after but was denied by a good challenge from Dani Carvajal before Ederson saved from Benzema.

    Courtois was called upon again to keep out a Jesus shot on the turn but he could do nothing after another Varane blunder in the 68th minute.

    Varane failed to cut out a long ball forward and then made an ineffective attempt to head back, allowing Jesus to nip in and dink over the keeper.

    Sterling wanted a penalty soon after following a challenge by Carvajal but nothing was given.

    Silva came on in the closing stages for what was his final appearance at the Etihad and City held firm to secure their place in the next round.
