A mouthwatering Champions League semi-final clash between Real Madrid and Manchester City kicks off tonight.

Pep Guardiola’s side remain on course for the treble but face their biggest test to that idea possible as they head to the reigning European champions.


Madrid, of course, beat City at this stage last year on their way to a 14th European crown in the most dramatic of fashions.

Carlo Ancelotti’s team are the acid test in Europe. Something about this competition brings out the best in them, even if LaLiga form has slightly dipped of late.

Still, City now have a certain Erling Haaland in their ranks. Enjoying a remarkable debut campaign in England, the Norway forward was signed for nights like this.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Real Madrid vs Man City is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off tonight, Tuesday 9 May, 2023.

The Estadio Santiago Bernabeu will host.
