Road To Istanbul- Manchester city Vs Real Madrid
Inter Milan sealed their place in the champions league final for the first time since 2010, after eliminating city rivals AC Milan by 3-0 on aggregate. Who they face will be decided today as Manchester city hosts Real Madrid.
Who Books the Next flight to Istanbul?
After a very enticing drama at the Bernabeu last Tuesday in a game that ended a goal apiece between the two sides, the two sides bids for a place in the final in Istanbul. With ’The Cityzens’ one win away from defending the English premier league title following a 3 - 0 victory over ’The Toffees’, they’re also hoping hoping for their first UEFA champions league trophy ever.
Pep guardiola’s side are unbeaten since early February (18 Wins and 4 Draws). With all those four draw being away from home, ’The Cityzens’ have won all of their last fourteen games at the Etihad Stadium where they’ve been unbeaten in the Champions league since September 2018 (22 Wins and 2 Draws) with four of the twenty two wins against Spanish clubs. The most recent one being last campaign’s 4-3 victory over today’s opponents.
The ’Los Blancos’ did a very good job absorbing ’The Cityzens’’ threat to stay in the tie in the previous matchup. Real Madrid moved up to second place on Saturday after a beating Getafe by a goal to nil with a much rotated side.
About to play his record 191st game as a manager, Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is aiming at a five successive champions league victory over an English opponent on foreign soil, a run that started after they lost here last season. The ’Los Blancos’ are looking for their first ever Head-To- Head win at the Etihad (2 Draws and 2 Losses).
’The Cityzens’ have excelled in all eight European ties in which they drew the first leg away from home.
Players To Watch
The Belgian international Kevin De Bruyne is still holding that grudge against Belgian teammate Thibaut Courtois netting 3 goals in their last five Head- To - Head meetings.
Karim Benzema showed his worth last campaign netting two goals at this venue and should also be one to watch today.
