Real Madrid vs Manchester City Predictions

  • There have been 17 goals in the last four meetings between these teams

  • Real Madrid have won only one of the six Champions League meetings between these teams
  • Only Erling Haaland has scored more goals than Phil Foden’s 20 this season

Familiar foes meet again

Real Madrid and Manchester City have now met in the last two Champions League knockout stages, with Los Blancos coming out on top en route to winning the competition in 2021-22 before the Citizens prevailed in last year’s semi finals on their way to lifting the trophy for the first time.

The two teams lock horns again at the quarter-final stage of this year’s competition, with Real Madrid hosting this first leg. The hosts all but have the La Liga title sewn up, with an eight-point lead over Barcelona, while Pep Guardiola’s side remain locked in a battle with Liverpool and Arsenal to retain their Premier League crown.

City have been far from completely convincing in the league this season but have not put a foot wrong in the Champions League, winning all eight games and scoring exactly three goals in all eight of those matches.

This is by far the toughest assignment of their campaign thus far however, with a fairly easy group navigated before they met Copenhagen in the round of 16.

Real Madrid won all six group games against Union Berlin, Napoli and Braga before squeezing past RB Leipzig 2-1 on aggregate in the last round.

Goals likely

One thing that has been a consistent feature of the four meetings between these sides over the last two seasons has been goals, 17 of them have been scored in total and over 3.5 goals has landed in three of those four meetings.

Both teams have found the net in six of Manchester City’s last eight games in all competitions and injuries to Kyle Walker and Nathan Ake significantly weaken their defence.

Against a Real Madrid side that have seen five of their last seven games in this competition go over 2.5 goals, a high-scoring affair looks likely once more.

Side with over 2.5  goals in what should be an entertaining affair.

Stalemate big runner

Despite their success in this competition over the years, Real Madrid have found Manchester City a tough nut to crack, winning just one of the six meetings between the two in the Champions League.

However given the defensive injuries that Pep Guardiola’s side have, it’s hard to fancy them for the win and the draw looks to have a big chance, three of Real’s last seven games have finished level.

Phil Foden was rested at the weekend with one eye on this clash and the England international has the second-most goals of any Manchester City player this season, 20. Take him to add to that tally here.
