Real Madrid face Man City in a Champions League Round of 16 first leg clash at the Santiago Bernabeu. The quality on show makes goals likely in this one, with Real Madrid’s experience in navigating the competition making them my tip to claim an advantage.

Real Madrid Form


Real Madrid finished second behind PSG in Group A after claiming three wins and two draws from six matches. They head into Wednesday’s match off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Levante in a La Liga clash on Saturday.

Los Blancos have been plagued by defensive problems in recent weeks and are without a clean sheet in their last four matches. They possess a potent forward line which has helped them to eight wins in their last 12 fixtures.
