Our prediction for this Champions League match:
All eyes will be on Etihad Stadium when Manchester City and Real Madrid face each other in the Champions League last 16, return leg. The Citizens came from behind to beat los Blancos in Madrid, meaning that they are with one foot in the quarter-finals. Even though the game will be played behind closed doors, Pep Guardiola’s troops are seen as favourites to make it to the next round.
Sergio Aguero remains in the recovery room, while Benjamin Mendy is suspended. Zinedine Zidane’s troops did well to put an end to Barca’s dominance in La Liga, but beating Man City in England is easier said than done. Experienced full-back Marcelo has overcome his injury, meaning that Zizu is likely to field the best possible side against the Citizens. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Man City want to save the season by going all the way in the elite competition. Sergio Ramos is banned for the visitors.
