17-05-23 Daily Football Predictions : Manchester City vs Real Madrid review

Betting Tips

As Manchester City hosts Real Madrid, one of the greatest Champions League semifinal evenings is in store. The defending champions of Europe and England square off with the tie ideally set at 1-1 in what many are thinking to be the de facto championship game. Despite spending billions on the team and club, City, who haven’t lost since early February, have only ever advanced past this stage once and have failed to end their Champions League curse. They take on a Madrid club that has a record 14 victories in this competition, including last year after shocking Pep Guardiola’s team in spectacular fashion in this same game.

Manchester City vs Real Madrid

After a competitive and excellent first leg at the Bernabeu that ended in a 1:1 tie, Man City enters the second leg as heavy favorites to go to their second Champions League final in three years. However, they will have stiff competition in Manchester thanks to the 14-time winners.

This Champions League semi-final is well-matched after a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu, but Manchester City has a great chance to take revenge on Real Madrid and go to their second Champions League final on Wednesday.

Even if it was slightly against the grain, Manchester City thoroughly deserved the first-leg draw they achieved thanks to Kevin De Bruyne’s brilliant equalizer in the second half. Manchester City controlled the first half in Madrid but trailed at the interval.

Their record at the Etihad is even better, with 15 straight wins in all competitions and a whopping 52 goals scored. This was followed by a 3-0 victory at Goodison Park, giving them a 22-game winning streak overall. This will be a tough test for Los Blancos even if they are healthy.

They have lost their past two trips to the Etihad Stadium in the Champions League, and they come into this match after two straight road losses to Girona and Real Sociedad. On Wednesday, I anticipate City to win because they are playing the top team in Europe.

Verdict

Incredibly, during the previous 13 months, City has won 33 of their last 35 competitive home games across all competitions. Since April 2022, only Brentford and Everton have departed this location with anything other than their tails between their legs. The Citizens have scored three or more goals in an amazing 26 of the 33 triumphs, including eight of the past 10. In addition, City has triumphed in ten of their past 11 UCL home games.

Real Madrid, in contrast, has only been able to win three of their past six games, and they have recently lost both of their away La Liga games against Girona and Real Sociedad. Real has now lost seven games away from home this season, finishing second in the La Liga title race.

However, Carlo Ancelotti’s team has experienced BTTS and over 3.5 goals in four of their previous eight away UCL games, so goals can typically be anticipated when they travel in this league. In six of the eight games, Real scored two goals or more, while both clubs hit a goal in five of those games.

Of course, one of those games was the memorable semifinal first leg against City from the previous season, which resulted in a surprising 4:3 victory for the hosts. While hoping for a rematch may be a bit unrealistic, we are unable to see how this game ends 0:0. Real may need a bit of a miracle to reach yet another CL final, according to City’s home record.
