👥 Head to head
Inspecting their past head to head meetings going back to 21/11/2012 shows us that Real Madrid have won 1 of these games & Manchester City 3, with the tally of drawn games standing at 2.
16 goals were scored between the two sides during those clashes, with 7 from Los Blancos and 9 being from The Citizens. That’s an average goals per game of 2.67.
🗞️ Team News: Real Madrid
David Alaba (Muscle Injury), Gareth Bale (Back trouble) and Eden Hazard (Fissure of the fibula) won’t be available for Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti.
We think that Los Blancos may well use a 4-3-3 system for the game with Thibaut Courtois, Daniel Carvajal, Eder Militao, Nacho Fernandez, Ferland Mendy, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Toni Kroos, Federico Valverde, Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior.
ℹ️ Team News: Manchester City
Owing to a fully healthy group ready to go, the Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola does not have any fitness concerns to speak of before this match.
We reckon that The Citizens seem likely to utilise a 4-3-3 lineup with a starting lineup of Ederson Moraes, Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, Aymeric Laporte, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Bernardo Silva, Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus and Phil Foden.
For this match, we think that Real Madrid must be fancied to find the net against this Manchester City outfit, however a single goal isn’t likely to be enough to give them the result that they want.
Therefore, we’re predicting a close game with a 1-2 winning margin for Manchester City by the conclusion of the game. Looking forward to this.
