-Manchester City’s recent form and recent player performance

-Real Madrid’s recent form and recent player performance

-A summary that ties it all together and produces a favorable betting outcome for today’s game between Manchester City and Real Madrid.

Manchester City Has Confidence

After scoring three goals on the road against Real Madrid in the first leg, they should have a ton of confidence heading into this game. Bernando Silva scored in the 2nd minute and the offense never looked back. Phil Foden scored in the 66th minute and Josko Gvardiol scored in the 77th minute. Manchester City had 62 percent of the possession and six shots on target. On Saturday, Manchester City faced off against Luton Town, and they were able to secure a 5-1 victory. Manchester City are pretty healthy heading into this game. Kevin De Bruyne, Kyle Walker, and Nathan Ake are all healthy and should be good to go in this game. 

Real Madrid Defense Let Them Down

At home, it was inexcusable in the last game for Real Madrid to give up three goals. Real Madrid had only 38 percent of the possession and five shots on target. At home, those type of numbers are excusable. Federico Valverde did score in the 79th minute to tie up the game. Real Madrid faced off against Real Mallorca on Saturday, and they played to a 1-0 victory in that game. Thibaut Courtois and David Alaba are both still working their way back from ACL injuries, and they aren’t going to be able to go in this game. Eder Militao is back and could play a role in this game. 

Manchester City vs Real Madrid Betting Prediction 

There were six goals scored in the first leg between these two teams, and it’s going to be no different in this game. Manchester City and Real Madrid are both going to have no issue running up the score here. There is going to be goaltender issues again here, and that will be the difference here, as this game is going to end up being higher scoring. I expect five or six goals to be scored. Back the over.
