Man City vs Real Madrid Prediction Tickets and Betting Odds: The home team, Man City will start as favorites in their upcoming match against Real Madrid. The Prediction for the match also favors a win for the host, Manchester City

Manchester City will aim for a home win to improve their chances of qualifying for the second straight UEFA Champions League Final when they host Real Madrid in the first leg of the Semi-Finals on Tuesday, 26th April.

The Citizens have been brilliant over the past few weeks across all competitions. However, they surely have no margin of error against the most successful side of the Champions League. 

Real Madrid has reached the top 4 of the UEFA Champions League for the 10th time in the last 12 seasons. They have already won the title 13 times. Carlo Ancelotti’s men defeated the top EPL side, Chelsea in the Quarter-Finals. It will be an interesting match for the Madrid defender, David Alaba as he will be playing against his former coach, Pep Guardiola. In a recent interview, Alaba said:

“We haven’t been in contact lately, but it will be lovely to see Pep again. We had a wonderful time together at Bayern. However, it’s all about frustrating him this time.”

Man City is expected to miss Kyle Walker in the big semi-final. The status of Casemiro is doubtful for Real Madrid.
