Manchester City v Real Madrid betting preview  

Man City are unbeaten in eight in the Champions League

Manchester City recorded an impressive 2-1 victory when the pair met at the Bernabeu back in February and are red hot favourite to go through. They have gone W9-L3 since the restart, winning all six games at Etihad Stadium and more impressively conceding just a goal in the process while scoring a whopping 24 goals. Pep Guardiola's men won the EFL Cup but they finished far behind Liverpool in the Premier League and suffered a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in the semi-finals of the FA Cup

Sergio Aguero will still be unavailable for the hosts due to injury while Benjamin Mendy is suspended due to the yellow card that he picked up in the first leg. Gabriel Jesus will lead the line, supported by Raheem Sterling and one between Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva. Fernandinho will play as centre back, leaving Ilkay Gundogan and Rodrigo partnering Kevin De Bruyne in the middle of the park. Joa Cancelo is favorite over Oleksandr Zinchenko for the left back position. New signings Ferran Torres and Nathan Akè are ineligible for the home side.

Real Madrid have just wrapped up the La Liga championship

Real Madrid come into the second leg on the back of another La Liga title success, courtesy of 10 victories in their last 11 matches since Spanish football resumed. They were last seen when drawing 2-2 at Leganes on July 19. Zinedine Zidane's men finished the domestic season with the best defensive record - only 25 goals conceded in 38 fixtures. As to Champions League, Real Madrid picked up 11 points in the group stages to finish second behind PSG in Group B

Los Blancos will be without star centre back Sergio Ramos after the Spaniard was sent off late on in the first leg. As a result, Eder Militao could join Raphael Varane in central defence, while Ferland Mendy should get the nod over Marcelo at left-back. Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are likely to flank Casemiro in midfield with Federico Valverde as back-up option. Up front, Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema look sure starters while Marco Asensio and Brazilian youngster Rodrygo are in contention for the remaining berth. Neither Gareth Bale nor James Rodriguez have been included in the Champions League list.

Starting Lineups   

Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Fernandinho, Laporte, Cancelo; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Mahrez

Real Madrid (4-3-3): Courtois; Carvajal, Varane, Militao, Mendy; Casemiro, Modric, Kroos; Hazard, Benzema, Asensio
