Manchester City Preview – Can Man City make up for title loss?

Having meekly surrendered the Premier League title to a far superior and consistent Liverpool outfit some time ago in the English top flight, Manchester City now have the chance to stamp their authority on the elite European stage in the Champions League where they’ll face Real Madrid at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City just couldn’t avoid the banana-skins in this season’s Premier league as they lost to Norwich City, Wolves twice, Manchester United twice, Chelsea and Southampton, while their loss to Liverpool back in November was a pivotal moment in the campaign.

On the European stage though, City have been dominant throughout so far as they topped Group C at a canter and a seven-point margin ahead of runners-up Atalanta, and they secured what could prove to be a vital 2-1 win in Madrid against opponents, Real Madrid at the end of February.

However, the prospect of City imploding at any given moment continues to gnaw away, so goals may be the best option here, especially as eight of City’s last 10 home ties in this competition have seen over 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Real Madrid Preview – Can Real Madrid do the elite double?

Having won the recent La Liga title at a relative canter over their fierce rivals, Barcelona, whom they finished five points above at the summit of the Spanish top flight, Real Madrid will now turn their attentions to the European stage where they will face Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Unlike their English counterparts, Manchester City, Real Madrid came home with a wet sail to clinch the La Liga title on the back of an impressive sequence of results which saw the visitors win 10 of their final 11 matches of the season.

Real Madrid also showed resilience following their 2-1 defeat to Manchester City in the 1st leg of this tie as they immediately bounced back with a 2-0 home win over Barcelona while finishing runners-up to PSG in Group A in an unevenly matched group which saw them finish some eight points ahead of 3rd placed Club Brugge.

Goals also look likely here though as seven of Real Madrid’s last 10 away matches have also seen three goals or more scored.
