City toppled Atletico Madrid last time out in their attempts to reach a second final in quick succession, although this will be a different proposition entirely.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side, as they proved against Chelsea, simply know how to produce big moments on the grandest stage. They may not always convince, but Madrid boast the kind of star quality to hurt any team in the world.
Few, of course, would doubt City’s quality, although they are a touch less experienced in grinding results out in this particular competition.

Manchester City vs Real Madrid team news
Joao Cancelo’s suspension from the first-leg makes a defensive crisis worse for Pep Guardiola. Kyle Walker missed the win over Watford with an ankle injury, alongside John Stones.
Nathan Ake was only fit enough for the bench after some fitness concerns while Ruben Dias played his first full game in a while, meaning City could be fairly light in the defensive department.
For Madrid, Modric was rested in the weekend win over Osasuna, although there are doubts about David Alaba’s fitness.
Manchester City vs Real Madrid prediction
