Real Madrid vs. Man City Prediction: Can Real Madrid Pull off Another Champions League Comeback?

Real Madrid vs. Man City Prediction (Champions League Semifinals Second Leg) Wednesday 3pm ET

The Citizens were a class above Carlo Ancelotti’s men last Tuesday in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal, running our 4-3 winners with Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, Phil Foden, and Bernardo Silva all contributing on the scoresheet. For Real Madrid, Karim Benzema was once again the best player on the pitch scoring a brace while Vinicius Junior showed off his explosive pace to score Real Madrid's second goal.

Real Madrid vs. Man City Prediction

Real Madrid probably collected more dramatic comebacks at home than other European teams in the Champions League knock-out stages and their fans are expecting another one on Wednesday. The only problem is that they will get exposed and we all know how dangerous the Citizens are on the break.

Let’s be honest, Man City was by far the better side in the first leg and they were very unlucky not to kill the tie at the Etihad. They were two goals up when they missed two great opportunities to score a third. De Bruyne, Silva, and Riyad Mahrez are all expected to return to the starting lineup after being named among the substitutes in the 4-0 victory against Leeds while Joao Cancelo will be back in action following his suspension from the first leg adding extra value at the back.

Real Madrid rested most of their key players in the 4-0 win against Espanyol with Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior, Dani Carvajal, Federico Valverde, and Toni Kroos being left on the bench. The hosts also lost David Alaba who will not be available for this crucial match. Los Blancos were crowned Spanish champions last weekend with Carlo Ancelotti becoming the first-ever manager to win the five major leagues in Europe.

The first leg had everything, from great goals to world-class players but was fully packed with defensive mistakes. Everyone is expecting the same outcome in the second leg and that’s why the goal line is once again set at three. Do we expect City to have a defensive approach? Maybe but they know that they will have plenty of time to solve the qualification issues during the break because Real Madrid will be forced to risk as they are trailing by one goal.
