Manchester City vs Real Madrid Prediction and Betting Preview 07 Aug 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-1
Manchester City vs Real Madrid PredictionPlaying second fiddle to high-flying Liverpool throughout the season, Manchester City could not muster a successful Premier League title defense as they were made to settle for a second-place finish. They played so impressively well but had to make do with a spot behind Klopp’s title winning side.
Match status: 2019/20 Champions League - Play Offs - 1/8-finals
Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester)
In truth, the Citizens were outstanding this term, garnering a staggering 81 points from 38 games. Also, they found goals very easy to come by, registering a league-high 102 efforts, streets ahead of the numbers managed by Liverpool.

With their attacking frontline in outstanding form, any team would have their work cut-out to keep Manchester City at bay. Props to Pep Guardiola for the amazing work he has put in since arriving at the Etihad Stadium. The Spanish gaffer knows how to get the best out of his players.

Having secured a hard-fought 2-1 win over La Liga champions Real Madrid in the first-leg of this Champions League Round-of-16 clash, the Citizens will be looking to hold on to their lead when Los Blancos come visiting for the reverse fixture on Friday night.

Manchester City vs Real Madrid Team News

Not quite the campaign City fans must have been hoping for as they watched their side relinquish the league title to fierce rivals Liverpool in humiliating fashion, trailing the Reds by a whopping 18 points. Also, they were eliminated from the FA Cup by Lampard’s spirited Chelsea side.

That said, Manchester City have actually clinched a piece of silverware this term, after narrowly defeating Aston Villa 2-1 in the EFL Cup final. However, if City finish up the season with only this trophy in the cabinet, it will go down as a disappointing one for them.

As such, the Citizens will be extra motivated to go all the way in the Champions League. Even though they have dominated England over the past decade, Manchester City have failed to replicate their domestic league exploits on the European scene. 

Pep Guardiola will be hoping to drive City to their first ever taste of Champions League success with a fairytale run in the competition this season. To stand any chances, they will be required to successfully see off the threat of Real Madrid – a side in tip-top form at the moment.

Heading to the coronavirus break in second-place, Real Madrid returned to the pitch firing on all cylinders. Going on an imperious ten-game winning streak in the league, Los Blancos managed to usurp archrivals Barcelona to the top of the log, clinching the La Liga title in style.

They have not fared badly in the Champions League either, finishing second in Group A, just five points behind table-toppers PSG. Madrid garnered 11 points from 6 games to advance to the knockout phases of the competition, where they were pitted against English giants Manchester City.

Taking the lead through Isco very early in the game, Los Blancos looked en route to a routine victory at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, City showed grit and character to come from behind to clinch a huge 2-1-win courtesy of goals from Gabriel Jesus and Kevin de Bruyne.

If Manchester City are to progress to the quarterfinals of the competition, they will need to put their previous CL woes behind them. To quote a stat, Guardiola’s charges have emerged victorious in just one of their five two-legged knockout fixtures against La Liga teams.

Injured or Suspended Players
