Real – City, Act II. After the exceptional match offered by the two teams in the first leg at the Etihad Stadium (4-3), Madrid and Citizens face off at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium for a semi-final second leg which promises to be spectacular. Pep Guardiola’s men took the lead in the first round in Manchester but they can harbor regrets. Superior in the game and in the number of occasions, the Citizens failed to hold a 2-goal advantage that they had gleaned three times at home. As a result, Real Madrid are still alive and only have one goal to make up for.
“We can do it” is the message from the players after winning their 35e La Liga title last Saturday. Winners (4-0) at home against Espanyol, Carlo Ancelotti’s men turned around this weekend and warmed up the Bernabeu public before the most anticipated match of the year. Real wants to believe it and the last double clashes in C1 proved that the Merengue had the weapons to reverse any situation. But beware, the Citizens dominated the first leg and the score of the first act does not necessarily reflect the balance of power between the two teams.

What probable compositions for Real and City?
Several uncertainties for Carlo Ancelotti before the kick-off of this Real – City in the semi-final second leg of the Champions League. According to the latest information from the Spanish press, David Alaba has still not recovered from his injury. The Austrian central defender, who left his partners at half-time in the first leg, should therefore not participate in the meeting at the Bernabeu. It is therefore Nacho who should be associated with Militão in the axis of defense. None absent in other key positions. Note the return of Casemiro, absent in the first leg semi-final. In attack, the Italian technician would hesitate between Rodrygo and Valverde on the right side. Opposite, Pep Guardiola can count on the return from suspension of Cancelo who should logically be established on the right or on the left depending on the availability of Walker who could be recovered from his injury. In defense, the Spanish technician should be forced to do without the English international, Stones, already absent in the first leg at the Etihad Stadium. For the other positions, the former Barça coach can count on his usual holders in midfield and in attack.
Real Madrid’s XI: Courtois – Carvajal, Nacho, Militão, F. Mendy – Casemiro, Kroos, Modric – Rodrygo (or Valverde), Benzema, Vinicius.
Manchester City’s XI: Ederson – Walker (or Cancelo), Laporte, Dias, Cancelo (or Zinchenko) – De Bruyne, Rodri, B. Silva – Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, Foden.
