MANCHESTER CITY

The Citizens are without doubt, one of the best teams in Europe at the moment. Although league success came even before the Pep era, the emergence of Guardiola at the helm has completely changed the phase of English football and title rivalry.

If they don’t slip up in the few games left this season, City would clinch a 6th league title and a 4th one under Pep. Regardless of this domestic success, many believe Pep’s time at the Etihad won’t be complete without European triumph. Therefore, to remain in contention for this elusive UCL glory, taking advantage of this first leg tie is crucial.

The home side’s confidence will be bolstered by the fact that Real have not won any of their previous three trips to Manchester in European competitions, drawing 2 and losing one. Their most recent meeting came in 2019/20 last 16 second leg which ended 2-1 to City.
