Where to watch to Real Madrid vs Man City

Manchester City continue their quest for a famous treble as they face Real Madrid in a Champions League semifinal first leg on Tuesday, May 9.

The Citizens were knocked out at this stage in the competition last season by the same opponents after two very late goals from Rodrygo and an extra-time winner from Karim Benzema.

Los Blancos have already won three trophies of their own this season: They have hoisted the UEFA Super Cup, the FIFA Club World Cup, and they defeated Osasuna in the Copa del Rey final on Saturday. Although Carlo Ancelotti's future is uncertain, he will definitely be confident of winning the Champions League as well.

All eyes will be on Benzema and Erling Haaland as the prolific strikers look to guide their side to the trophy, and win a Ballon d'Or for themselves.

Real Madrid vs Man City lineups

It will be very unlikely that Carlo Ancelotti moves away from his favoured 4-3-3 formation. He was also able to rest a few players over Madrid's last few games.

Guardiola will probably continue with his 3-2-4-1 City lineup, which has been working well for his side in the second half of the season.

Below are the predicted starting lineups for both teams ahead of their Champions League match at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid starting 11

(4-3-3, right to left): Courtois (GK) — Carvajal, Rudiger, Alaba, Camavinga — Valverde, Kroos, Modric — Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius Jr

  • Injured: Mendy, Ceballos
  • Suspended: Militao

Ferland Mendy could make a return to the Madrid squad as he is close to recovering from a calf injury that has kept him out since March 19. Dani Ceballos is set to miss out with a muscle problem while Eder Militao is suspended due to an accumulation of yellow cards.

Luka Modric and Antonio Rudiger were both benched during their side's Copa del Rey win over Osasuna, while Karim Benzema was rested in their defeat to Real Sociedad.

Man City starting 11

(3-4-1-2): Ederson (GK) — Walker, Dias, Laporte — Stones, Rodri — Mahrez, Silva, De Bruyne, Grealish — Haaland

  • Injured: Palmer, Ake
  • Suspended: None

Cole Palmer is out for Man City due to an ankle injury. Nathan Ake was substituted after 53 minutes in their win over Leeds United due to a hamstring problem and he is a doubt for this game.

Guardiola also heavily rested his side for this fixture, starting the match with Jack Grealish, Ruben Dias, Rodri, Bernardo Silva, John Stones and Kyle Walker on the bench at the weekend. 

Real Madrid vs Man City odds

Although Real Madrid have such a stellar record in this competition, their recent form coupled with Man City's 20-match unbeaten streak combine to make the Spanish side the underdog at home.

There are also likely to be many goals in the fixture with the quality and form of stars Haaland, Benzema, De Bruyne, and Vinicius Junior, who are all looking to show their attacking prowess.
