Real Madrid versus Manchester City - Leg One @ Santiago Bernabeu

Real Madrid are not feeling themselves in the best way after confirming their after-mentioned exit from possible La Liga title hopes with Barcelona’s win over Osasauna this past week.

However, they are more than in the thick of things when it comes to trying to defend their Champions League crown.

A tournament that has been won by them so many times over, the Los Blancos will try and remain steadfast in their approach against a more eager Manchester City side.

Karim Benzema and company are looking to be the ones to spoil the party once again and have all the tools necessary to do so.

The first leg being at their home stadium makes a ton of difference, but they will need to hold off City in all aspects if they want to have a chance to move on.

Vinicius Junior needs to be one hundred percent on his game, while the City defence looks to shut down the counter.

Manchester City and Erling Haaland are more than capable of making any team their own, and they look to be the literal best team in the world at the moment.

The Blues are dominating their opposition with nothing of remorse and look to finally be able to lift their first ever Champions League cup.

The makings of their team this year are so deep and so steady that many would think there is no one to stop them.

Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne are playing at peak level, and it would be hard to imagine that anyone is able to quell them anytime soon.

Betting Prediction - Manchester City moneyline in the first leg, as they take home a tight win over the Blancos back to the Etihad.
