Manchester City vs Real Madrid: times, TV, and how to watch online
All the info you need to know on how and where to watch the Champions League match between Manchester City and Real Madrid at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday.
Manchester City and Real Madrid meet in the last four of this season’s Champions League in what it’s expected to be a hard-fought first-leg battle at the Etihad Stadium.
The Citizens got the ticket among the best four European teams after defeating Atlético Madrid in the quarters, while Los Blancos ended Chelsea’s hopes of back-to-back European glory in a fixture where both teams had their chances of qualifying until the last second.
Pep Guardiola’s men, who were knocked out of the FA Cup semi-finals by Liverpool, are leading the Premier League standings with 80 points, with only one more point than the Reds, who are sitting second.
City, almost invincible at the Etihad
City, undefeated at the Etihad in the Champions League since September 2018, have scored 13 goals in their five home matches in the tournament this campaign and have shown a rock-solid defense, without conceding a goal against Atlético and Sporting CP.
Guardiola could make history in the match against Barcelona’s archrivals, as he could become the first manager to eliminate Real Madrid from the tournament three times.
Meanwhile, the Spanish giants had to dig deep to beat Chelsea on their way to the semifinals. Their 1-3 clear win at Stamford Bridge seemed enough for Carlo Ancelotti’s side not to suffer in the second leg, but the Blues put on a better performance than expected and were on the verge of completing an impressive comeback. However, Rodrygo forced the overtime, where Karim Benzema booked Real Madrid’s spot in the last four of the Champions League.
Can Real Madrid win in England again?
Benzema & co., on the verge of becoming LaLiga champions, go into the match vs. City on a six-game winning streak away from home across all competitions.
However, history is not on Madrid’s side, as no side has ever won away from home against two separate English teams during the knockout rounds of a single Champions League tournament. Will the Spanish outfit break those stats?
Tuesday’s game will be the seventh meeting between both teams in the Champions League, with the Citizens claiming a pair of 2-1 wins in the 2019-20 last 16, although Real had previously come out on top 1-0 over two legs in the 2015-16 semifinals.
