Manchester City vs Real Madrid: Prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news and h2h results today

Manchester City take on Real Madrid tonight in the first leg of their heavyweight Champions League semi-final tie.

City toppled Atletico Madrid last time out in their attempts to reach a second final in as many years, although this will be a different proposition entirely.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side, as they proved against both Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, simply know how to produce big moments on the grandest stage. They may not always convince, but Madrid boast the kind of star quality to hurt any team in the world.

Few, of course, would doubt City’s quality, although they are a touch less experienced in grinding results out in this particular competition.
