Manchester City managed to contain a Cristiano Ronaldo-less Real Madrid side well at the Etihad last week, but celebrating a goalless draw when you are facing a visit to the Bernebau seems a little overzealous to me. They now need a score draw at better away to an in form Real Madrid side, which looks like a mountain to climb after their result on Sunday.

They lost 4-2 at Southampton on Sunday afternoon to cast further doubt over their top four position. Shane Long opened the scoring for Southampton before Sadio Mane scored his first of the day. Teenage sensation Kelechi Iheanacho brought the deficit back to one goal before the break, but Mane scored two in 25 minutes to complete his hat trick. Iheanacho added a late consolation goal, but it was too late for them to get back into the match.

This made it just two wins from Manchester City's last five games in all competitions and ended their eight match unbeaten streak. Admittedly it wasn't a full strength side, but it's still an unacceptable result for a team who are battling to maintain their top four position. They are now just four points clear of Manchester United in 5th.

Real Madrid didn't have the best of times against Real Sociedad, but they still managed to pick up the three points thanks to a late winner from Gareth Bale. This leaves them in 3rd in the La Liga, but the title race is becoming increasingly close. There is now just one point between Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, and Real Madrid at the top of the table.

This win made it six wins and one draw since Real Madrid's last defeat. This 2-0 loss to Wolfsburg was just a blip though, and they have won 12 of their last 14 outings in all competitions.

It's at the Bernebau that Real Madrid really turn the style on though. They have won six on the bounce at home and kept five clean sheets in the process, scoring 23 at the other end. Manchester City, on the other hand, have won just two of their last eight away days in all competitions.

I think this is Real Madrid's tie to lose now. They have won 14 of their last 15 home matches and only failed to score two or more goals on one occasion. Ronaldo being back provides a huge boost to their chances as well, so odds of 3/4 for a Real Madrid Win and Over 1.5 Goals look incredibly good value, because I'd be very surprised if this ended 1-0. I'm going for a 3-0 win for Real Madrid at 10/1 as well.

Last week's goalless draw made it two draws and two wins for Real Madrid in their four clashes with Manchester City.

Real Madrid have won 83% of their home games this season and seen an average of 3.72 goals per game.


Cristiano Ronaldo is back in training and expected to be back for Real Madrid after missing the first leg of the tie and their weekend game against Real Sociedad. Karim Benzema could miss out with a knee injury though.

Key midfield duo Yaya Toure and David Silva could be forced to sit this one out through injury.

Real Madrid vs Manchester City: Can Pellegrini achieve perfect City swan song against former club?

The Champions League Semi Final second leg between Real Madrid and Manchester City at the Bernabeu takes place tonight in a 7:45pm kick off. The tie is finely poised after a 0-0 draw at the Etihad Stadium in the first leg. Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping to sign off on a high by guiding his side to a Champions League Final against Atletico Madrid but they will need to eliminate Zinedine Zidane's side on their own patch.
