Champions League – How Man City should line up vs Real Madrid

Manchester City holds a 2-1 lead with two away goals ahead of Man City vs Real Madrid UEFA Champions League last 16-second leg. Champions League fans can book Champions League Final Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.

Pep Guardiola must name what is arguably his most important starting XI of the season. Real Madrid visit the Etihad in the Champions League. Plenty has changed in the five months since Manchester City beat Real at the Bernabeu in February. Sergio Aguero’s injury potentially a huge blow to Guardiola’s side.

But in Gabriel Jesus, City has a fine replacement who was influential and scored in the first leg. Aside from Aguero, City will also have to replace Benjamin Mendy, who is suspended for the second leg. Joao Cancelo starting the final two games of the Premier League season at left-back in apparent preparation for this game.

Guardiola will also have huge selection calls to make in central defence. With wantaway defender Eric Garcia only having 90 minutes of Champions League experience. Finishing the league season as Aymeric Laporte’s first-choice partner.

Stuart Brennan:

Pep has some big calls to make, not least at centre back where Eric Garcia has made a big pitch for a place in recent weeks – but Fernandinho’s experience, and use of the ball, give him a slight edge for me. Joao Cancelo has done enough to grab left-back, and will add useful pace to the backline.

Rodri’s extra beef and height should give him the nod over Ilkay Gundogan as holding midfielder – just about – and I would go for Bernardo Silva’s extreme work rate ahead of David Silva’s magic as the third midfielder, with City defending a lead.

Up top, Riyad Mahrez gives you the ability to score a goal from nothing, and I would switch Raheem Sterling to a withdrawn central striker role and put Gabriel Jesus back in the left-sided role which saw him a man of the match at the Bernabeu.

Simon Bajkowski:

The city has the advantage on the scoreline but will have had it drilled into them that they will have to work their socks off for 90-plus minutes. Because of that, they will need runners. It’s a toss-up between Bernardo Silva and Phil Foden for the right-wing spot but although Foden has been in an excellent form.

I think he may be better coming off the bench against tired legs. Sterling and Jesus have to play, offering both works off the ball and movement in an attack that could see them switch positions through the game. Rodri and Gundogan have taken some stick this season with the consensus of many being that they slow the team down.

The City will still need to contain Madrid through the middle and it certainly worked in the first leg. In defence, Joao Cancelo is better defensively than Aleks Zinchenko. While I would have given Eric Garcia the nod over Fernandinho. Reckon Guardiola’s offering at the press conference suggests he is out.

Joe Bray:

I’d try to keep the City team as close to the XI that caused Real the most problems in the first leg. That means Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte in defence. Eric Garcia feels like too big a risk to play in a game of this magnitude. He’s risen to every challenge thrown at him so far.

He hasn’t had the likes of Karim Benzema and Eden Hazard targeting him before. Raheem Sterling came off the bench to win City’s decisive penalty. He should start on the left as Gabriel Jesus moves into the central striker role. In midfield, the experience of David Silva and energy of Bernardo Silva will be useful.

I’d start Ilkay Gundogan and Rodri again to stop Real from getting a foothold in the tie. Silva deserves to feature at some point, though, in what will be his final appearance at the Etihad as a City player.

Zinedine Zidane hosts chosen his voyaging get-together for the second leg of the last-16 tie, which City lead 2-1.

In their place, previous City adolescent Brahim Diaz cuts having just played ten games all season. Protector Javi Hernandez rolls in from the B group. Castilla, with Sergio Ramos heading out to Manchester notwithstanding being prohibited for the subsequent leg.

Zidane’s choice:

Zidane’s choice to forget about Bale denotes the finish of a sweltering effort for the 31-year-old. Nearly offered to a Chinese Super League side the previous summer, he was kept in the primary group. Although his relationship with the mentor was at limit during his first spell in control.

Bundle battled with injury and scored only multiple times in 20 appearances and played just a single time after the restart. While Madrid rampaged past Barcelona to scoop the class title. He stood out as truly newsworthy with his shenanigans on the seat.

In one game, he kidded that he was snoozing under his face cover before making binocular motions to the contribute another. Gossipy tidbits are overflowing that Real will attempt to sell their one-time record marking with two years left on his agreement.

In any case, Bale’s operator Jonathan Barnett says his customer is cheerful in Spain. Accentuated that it was Zidane’s choice to oust the winger. He disclosed to BBC Sport: Wales player Gareth is fine. He has two years left on his agreement. He prefers living in Madrid and he is going to no place.

He is still in the same class as any other person in the group. It’s up to Zinedine Zidane. There’s been intrigue yet there’s not a club on the planet which can bear the cost of him.

“It’s an extraordinary misfortune that he’s not in the Real Madrid group right now yet he won’t leave.”

Man City have missed a Champions League benefit for Real Madrid tie

Manchester City is preparing for their Champions League game with Real Madrid at the Etihad on Friday. Champions League fans can book Champions League Final Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.

Manchester City has plenty going for them ahead of the second leg of their Champions League tie with Real Madrid. Not only do they hold an actual advantage – leading 2-1 which means any draw or a 1-0 loss will still take them through. Manchester City is in excellent form.

In six games at the Etihad since football restarted, they have six wins with five clean sheets and an average of four goals scored per game. Recent history would back them as well. They have progressed in all seven Champions League matches where they have won the first leg away from home.

Real Madrid Record:

Real Madrid has a poorer record of coming back after losing the first leg. Zinedine Zidane has overseen just two wins from six games with English teams in the competition. In Pep Guardiola, they not only have one of the best coaches in the game but also one with more knowledge of. They have more motivation for beating Real than pretty much anyone else.

But if all that goes in City’s favour, they have lost the advantage that they were expected to have. However much luck is needed to win the Champions League, a trophyless league campaign certainly helps. The last time Real Madrid won the tournament they finished 17 points. They are two positions behind Barcelona in La Liga.

It is easy to conceive that the Blues could have gone all the way last season. They had not prioritised Crystal Palace in the league above the first leg of their quarter-final with Tottenham. Normally disappointment in the league – not something Guardiola is used to – would increase a team’s chances in the Champions League.

They would be free to focus their attention – as City were primed to do this season. This has been the most extraordinary of years. A consequence of football restarting was the decision that the leagues would not run concurrently with European competitions.

Manchester City:

Instead of facing a Madrid side that was in the middle of a title race, both teams will have had at least a fortnight without a game to prepare. Not only does Zidane’s side not have to deal with simultaneous challenges but they are also on a high from winning their league. Something that looked pretty unlikely around the time of the first leg.

The city will still have plenty in their favour on Friday – the scoreline at kick-off being, again, a pretty big deal – but what was expected to be one of their comparative strengths has been wiped out.

City’s helpless showcase against Mikel Arteta’s Gunners at Wembley unmistakably got the City chief off guard. With little for his group to play for in the staying two Premier League games, he is now turning his players’ concentration to the Spanish adversaries.

Guardiola stated: “I was clear after the game, knockout games you need to do a decent exhibition and it was bad enough, that can occur.

It is anything but a grievance, it occurred, we didn’t do it. Against Madrid we need to do a decent game, all the cups are one game and on Saturday it was bad enough.

“It’s overlooked. We are energized and idealistic against Madrid. On the off chance that we play at a nice level we’ll get our opportunity, if not we’ll be out.”

Guardiola was rankled at eight Premier League clubs who reached the Court of Arbitration for Sport while they were thinking over the City’s intrigue. What’s more, there is still sick inclination at the Etihad over how the Gunners pursued Guardiola’s then-collaborator Arteta to take over at the Emirates prior this season.

Guardiola stated: “We didn’t play the first half against Arsenal like the second. That was the main lament. We needed to play an hour and a half like the subsequent half.

“Be that as it may after we were beaten we shake hands. The adversaries consistently merit my regard and credit. Also, Arsenal… I have all the regard for what they are on the pitch, not much off the pitch – but rather on the pitch, a ton.”

Champions League – Man City vs Real Madrid venue plan in serious doubt after the change of UK travel rules

The last 16 ties were being considered for a change to Portugal yet new limitations have tossed Uefa plans into disarray. Uefa’s proposal to stage the second leg of Manchester City’s Champions League tie with Real Madrid in Lisbon has been thrown into doubt.

Changes to the UK’s Covid-19 rules on travellers arriving here from abroad have removed one obstacle to the second leg being held in Manchester and created difficulty in holding it in Portugal. And the new changes could also put City at a distinct disadvantage in the next Premier League season if they reach the final of the competition.

Uefa have already decided to stage the competition from the quarter-finals onwards entirely in Portugal, in a World Cup-style format tournament. And they were leaning towards also playing the four outstanding last 16 ties due to be played on August 7 and 8 – in Portugal.

That would have meant that City, who leads 2-1 from the first leg at the Bernabeu, would lose home advantage for the return, but could, bizarrely, still be eliminated on the away goals rule even though Lisbon is 1,100 miles closer to their home stadium than it is to Manchester.

The rationale in that proposal was that, at the time, the UK was insisting that all travellers from overseas would have to self-isolate for 14 days after arrival – which would mean playing the match would not be possible.

They also considered the fact that playing all of the games in one country would mean that teams would avoid flying all over Europe, which isn’t a great idea during a pandemic.

But the first of those two reasons have been removed by the lifting of restrictions on travellers from Spain, which means Real would be able to come to Manchester, play the game and return home the following day, as normal.

The change in restrictions also means that anyone travelling to Portugal has to self-isolate for 14 days on returning to this country.

So if City goes to Lisbon for the second leg, on August 7 or 8, flying back to Manchester the next day would make them unable to return to Portugal for the rest of the tournament, if they get through to the quarter-finals.

That means, if they beat real over two legs, they would have to stay in Portugal for a week until the tournament gets underway. Manager Pep Guardiola would prefer to play the game in Manchester, but the idea of a week of training and acclimatisation in Portugal if City progress would not be unappealing.

But the problem is then postponed, as City would still be forced to self-isolate after returning to Manchester. If they reached the Champions League final, on August 23, and flew home the next day, they would have to self-isolate in Manchester for a fortnight.

That would take them to within five days of the start of the new Premier League season on September 12. The city could rightly argue that such arrangements would put them at a real disadvantage, as they would be unable to train together until days before the new campaign.

Uefa have delayed the decision on venues for the remaining last 16 games until the effects of the pandemic, and the various rules in European countries, became clearer.
