Two of the biggest clubs in the world will meet at Etihad Stadium on Tuesday when Manchester City take on Real Madrid in the Champions League semifinals.Only two games stand between these two teams and a place in the final, and it would be no surprise if the winner of the 2022 Champions League emerges from this match.
Man City enjoys home advantage in this first leg and will try to exploit it to travel to Spain for the second leg with an overall lead.This is the ideal scenario for the supporters of the Premier League champions, as they want to avoid having to win in Spain.
This is a meeting of two teams good enough to win this competition, but a nervous 90 minutes is expected. Man City knows they need to win at home to have the best chance of advancing, while Real Madrid will try to stay competitive when this game goes back to Spain.
They can afford a narrow 1-0 defeat or a single goal and then try to make up for that loss next week in the second leg. A high-scoring game is unlikely and it could be as close as Man City’s win over Atletico Madrid in the quarterfinals.
There is so much at stake and no player on the field will want their mistake to be the reason for their team’s elimination.
