Despite the Spanish team enjoying an excellent recent track record in this competition which included lifting the European Cup in 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018, they are actually the outsiders for a clash against the current champions of England.

Zinedine Zidane has tasted plenty of success at the Bernabeu and will now focus his efforts on overcoming a team managed by a former manager of Barcelona, with Pep Guardiola sure to be greeted with a cauldron of boos due to his long-standing relationship at the Catalan club.

Real have been able to match Barca stride for stride so far in Spain and they were the better side in the recent Clasico at the Nou Camp, with Karim Benzema enjoying an excellent season in front of goal.

Eden Hazard should return to the team by the time this clash is played, with former Chelsea team-mate Thibaut Courtois enjoying an excellent time of things between the sticks, while Raphael Varane is among the world’s best centre-halves and the same applies to Casemiro and Luka Modric in midfield.

Manchester City have so far fallen short in their quest to become European champions. While this admittedly requires some luck along the way, they have been beaten by domestic opponents in the past two seasons and this looks a tough assignment.

Guardiola drew criticism from having a negative game plan at White Hart Lane in last season’s quarter final first leg encounter and will surely understand the importance of away goals this time around.

However, there continues to be a question mark over the team’s defence and we think Real Madrid look an excellent bet with half a goal advantage in this clash. A draw looks the least of what they are capable of achieving.
