Given that both teams have made it thus far, and since the winner will go to the competition’s final, this should be an exciting contest.
Real Madrid will try to build on their 4-0 La Liga win over Espanyol. Real Madrid had 58% control and 11 shots on goal, five of them were on target. Rodrygo Goes (33, 43), Marco
Asensio (55), and Karim Benzema (81′) scored for Real Madrid.
Espanyol had 20 shots on goal, 6 of which were on target. Five of the last six Real Madrid games have featured at least three goals. During this time, opponents scored 10, while Real
Madrid scored 17.
Manchester City come into this match after a 0-4 Premier League win against Leeds United. Manchester City had 60% possession and 19 shots on goal, 6 of which were on target.
Rodri (13′), Nathan Aké (54′), Gabriel Jesus (78′), and Fernandinho (90′) scored for Manchester City. Leeds United had seven shots on target.
Manchester City have scored a lot of goals in their last six games because of their attacking play (18 to be exact). On average, three goals were scored each game throughout this period. Will that pattern continues in this game?
Real Madrid vs Man City – Betting Analysis
Real Madrid should be fancied to score against Manchester City in this match. However, a single goal is unlikely to yield the desired effect. So, we expect a close game with a 1-2 Manchester City triumph. This excites me.
Real Madrid have won one of their previous matchups, while Manchester City have won three,
with two games being drawn. During those games, Los Blancos scored seven goals and The Citizens nine, for a total of 16 goals. That’s 2.67 goals per game.
In the first meeting, City won 4-3 with seven goals. De Bryne and Jesus gave the hosts an early 2-0 lead, but Benzema cut the deficit in half.
Foden made it 3-1, Vinicius made it 4-2 before Bernardo Silva scored. Benzema set the penalty outcome. This was their fourth meeting with three or more goals on both ends.
