Tip Reasoning

  • Man City are unbeaten in their last 12 at home, winning eight of those.
  • City have scored 10 goals in their last three games.
  • Over 2.5 goals has been a winning bet in nine of Real’s last 10 games.
  • City have four wins and one draw after five home games in this competition.

Real test for Man City

Manchester City continue their quest for European glory on Tuesday as they entertain Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tie.

City have issues at right-back as Joao Cancelo is suspended and Kyle Walker is a doubt with an ankle injury but is likely to start if he is available, while Real have a long injury list and will probably be without David Aalaba after he was forced off in the win over Osasuna at the weekend.

City can make most of home advantage

Los Blancos won 3-1 at Chelsea in the previous round but it is hard to see them claiming another win on English soil on Tuesday.

The Premier League leaders have just one defeat in their last 12 games and have won their last two, scoring eight goals and conceding just once in the process. City also have a near-perfect home record in this competition with four wins and one draw from five games, with that stalemate coming against Sporting after they had won the first leg 5-0.

City are a short price to simply win this fixture so for a bit more value a home win with over 2.5 goals looks a good option. Pep Guardiola’s men have found some form in front of goal of late and have scored at least twice in each of their last three games, hitting 10 goals in total, while over 2.5 goals has been a winning bet in nine of Real’s last 10 games.

Real can keep tie alive

City should be able to open up a first leg lead, but Real Madrid shouldn’t be underestimated after knockout out Chelsea and they can make a game of this by grabbing a goal themselves.

Real have only failed to score in one of their last 12 games overall and City have conceded in three of their last five, so we may well see goals at both ends and a 3-1 win for the hosts has some appeal in the correct score market.

Finally, an anytime goal from Gabriel Jesus appeals after his four-goal heroics against Watford at the weekend.  The performance should see the Brazilian retain his starting spot and he has a solid record in this competition with three goals in six games.

Man City predicted lineup: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko, Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne, Mahrez, Sterling, Jesus

Real Madrid predicted lineup: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Nacho, Marcelo, Kroos, Camavinga, Modric, Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius Junior
