Manchester City vs Real Madrid Free Betting Tips
The Citizens have been brilliant in recent weeks in all competitions. However, they surely have no margin for error against the most successful team in the Champions League.
The Spanish coach, with respect to his titles at Barcelona, tends to overthink scenarios in big games, and his Manchester City team, despite their strength domestically, have not looked incredible in Europe. Real Madrid also had bad moments, but also showed how Ancelotti can inspire his team to succeed.
Manchester City have played consistently well in the last few games, apart from the FA Cup semi-final defeat against Liverpool. If we talk about the last 5 matches, City have won 2 and lost 1. 2 matches ended in a draw.
They have qualified for the semifinals of the Champions League by defeating Atletico Madrid in the quarterfinals with a 1-0 aggregate score. The emphatic 5-1 win over Watford in the last Premier League match must have given the Citizens a lot of confidence ahead of the big clash.
Real Madrid have shown their experience in the Champions League this season. When many teams would give up, Real Madrid have shown resilience and have been rewarded. Despite going down 1-0 on aggregate to PSG, a Karim Benzema hat-trick at the iconic Santiago Bernabeu propelled them through.
Then, in the quarterfinals, 3-1 up on aggregate after the first leg win, they were 3-0 down at home to Chelsea, only for Rodrygo to score after a wonderful pass from Luka Modric to take the game into extra time and then Benzema scored the winner in stoppage time. Now, they face Manchester City in the semifinals, in what is their toughest task.
When it comes to experience, no one can match Real Madrid. A lot of their players have experience in winning the Champions League, the club has won it 13 times in its history, and they have a coach who has won this title three times, an honor Ancelotti shares only with Zinedine Zidane and Bob Paisley.
Real Madrid have also been in very good form in recent weeks. They managed a hard-fought victory against Chelsea in the quarterfinals with a 5-4 aggregate score. Real Madrid have won 4 and lost only 1 of the last 5 meetings. Their last La Liga match was a 3-1 win over Osasuna.
