Manchester City vs Real Madrid – UEFA Champions League – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

The UEFA Champions League semi-finals begin on 26th April, Tuesday with Manchester City hosting Real Madrid at the Etihad in the first leg of their European tie. It will be the English club’s first semi-final contest in the Champions League and Manuel Pellegrini, who is departing at the end of the season, would love to leave a lasting legacy.

Manchester City defeated Paris Saint-Germain in the quarter-finals while Real Madrid mounted a comeback through Cristiano Ronaldo against Wolfsburg to reach the last four of Europe’s premier competition.

Team News

Yaya Toure is Manuel Pellegrini’s only injury concern. Karim Benzema has been all but ruled out after the Frenchman limped off the pitch during Real Madrid’s last game. Daniel Carvajal and Cristiano Ronaldo are carrying minor knocks, but should start nonetheless.

To add to the excitement of the punters, bet365 are having the In-Play Bet Offer. Submit a pre-match bet on Manchester City v Real Madrid and you will enjoy a risk-free In-Play bet to the same stake on the big match.
