Man City vs Real Madrid prediction and odds: Pep Guardiola’s side should have far too much for Madrid

Manchester City are on the brink of a second successive Champions League final appearance and the chances are, if they do make it to the Stade de France, they will face English opponents once again.
Real Madrid stand in the way of Pep Guardiola’s side but City are 2/5 favourites with Betfred to qualify, while the runaway La Liga leaders are 15/8 outsiders.
And those odds don’t flatter City, who will surely have too much dynamism for Madrid’s ageing engine room in the middle third of the pitch, which is where this tie could be decided.
If City come flying out of the blocks, they could end this tie before they even set foot on the plane to Spain.
Madrid have kept only one clean sheet in their last seven games and Chelsea could have had a hatful in the Bernabéu in the last round. That bodes well for City side that go into this game in excellent scoring form having hit ten goals in their last three games.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side have shipped at least once in all four Champions League matches they have been involved in since the group stages and it’s hard to see them keeping a rampant City at bay.
City were 2-1 winners in both legs against Madrid in the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League round of 16 despite falling behind in the first leg at the Santiago Bernabéu.
Man City vs Real Madrid prediction
City should find Real Madrid much easier to break down Atletico, who showed very little attacking intent in the first leg of their quarter-final tie at the Etihad.
Chelsea demonstrated in the last round just how vulnerable Madrid can be defensively by scoring four goals across the two games, racking up an incredible 28 efforts on goal in the second leg.
If City hit their straps they can put this whole tie to bed in the first 90 minutes and, with that in mind, the 13/8 about Pep Guardiola’s side scoring three goals (or more) rates a fair bet.
