Real Madrid vs Man City Match Preview

Real Madrid have seen a troubled streak lately and they host Man City for their Champions League clash with a 1-0 loss at Levante behind them, where Morales bagged a late winner and punished their inability to break the deadlock. Zinedine Zidane’s men have thus been denied for the third time in four games and will now need to show more.

Los Blancos have been tougher to beat at Santiago Bernabeu and we’ve seen them more impressive in the final third, which will have the crowd hopeful. Still, they’ve seen a Copa del Rey exit in the hands of Real Sociedad (3-4) while Celta Vigo (2-2) snatched an important point in a four-goal thriller.

Man City have seen troubles of their own and the huge 19-point gap to Premier League pace-setters Liverpool (who have a game in hand) speaks volumes. Still, they beat West Ham (2-0) and Leicester (0-1) in their last two outings and will now hope to build on such performances – especially at the back.

Citizens will be happy with their records on the road and we’ve seen them beat Man United (1-3), Aston Villa (1-6), Sheffield United (0-1) since early January – while seeing a 2-0 loss at Tottenham interrupt the streak. This has led many to believe the visitors will have what it takes for an upset in the first leg already.

We don’t see them making it happen, though, and we’ll now rather back Real Madrid to bounce to the winning ways at 9/5 with Paddy Power. We expect a very tight contest and little could make the difference, but Los Blancos should have what it takes.

Still, we should be in for goals on both ends and going for a high-scoring occasions with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 8/13 with bet365 feels like a banker bet, especially for those keeping faith we will see a winner in Madrid as both sides enjoy such clashes quite regularly.
