Real Madrid – Man City
It’s time for some amazing soccer spectacle again! Real Madrid will host Manchester City in a second leg from the Champions League 1/2-finals. Let’s head out to Santiago Bernabeu to preview this match in our soccer betting tips for today.
The first game between these two teams was one of the best games we’ve seen lately. The match ended with a 4-3 win for the Cityzens, but this is not sending them to the final just yet – it’s a small advantage. Now Pep Guardiola’s team will try to make the next step, but they will face the most decorated club in the history of the competition.
We saw everything in the first leg. Karim Benzema kept Madrid in the tie with a brace while four different players scored for City – De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, Foden and Bernardo Silva put the ball behind Thibaut Courtois’ back.
The good news for Pep Guardiola is the return of Joao Cancelo – his best full-back at the moment. The Portuguese international missed the first game because of suspension, but now he’d be able to help the team. At the same time there are some problems with Kyle Walker and John Stones – it’s not clear if they will play against Madrid.
Real Madrid just celebrated winning La Liga for 35th time, but now they must focus on the Champions League again. On Saturday Los Blancos crushed Espanyol with 4-0 at home, but they will face a completely different opponent on Wednesday.
David Alaba will miss the game against City because of an injury. This means that he will be replaced by Nacho in defense. Meanwhile players like Eden Hazard, Gareth Bale and Luka Jovic are not available as well, but they are not that important for Real Madrid anyway.
That’s the soccer betting tips for today. We expect some wonderful spectacle from Real Madrid and Manchester City again. The English side is one goal ahead, but it means almost nothing in this case.
