Manchester City travel to Santiago Bernabeu for the vital second leg of the Champions League semifinal this week.

Real Madrid will be looking to finish the job after an impressive away performance in Manchester last week. Los Blancos came away with a 0-0 result after wasting a few good chances to put the game to bed.

The Spanish giants were without their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo for the first leg, but the Portuguese superstar will be back for this one.

Real Madrid are in superb form right now and have been unplayable at home at times.

On the hand, Manchester City have had a very disappointing weekend. The Premier League outfit were beaten 4-2 by Southampton and looked out of their depth against Real Madrid last week.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side are expected to put up a fight, but the home side are firm favourites for this one.
