Manchester City’s head coach Pep Guardiola knows the drill playing away at the Santiago Bernabeu. His presence in the dugout will not be welcomed.
Guardiola has tormented the Real Madrid faithful at the Bernabeu for years during his time coaching in Barcelona.
He has the right team to get the job done. Madrid is swift in attack but can also hold its own on defense.
Guardiola will likely opt for a formation build for counter-attacking early but that could change in the second half.
Madrid will likely be on the attack early and controlling possession. They will likely have 3 in the middle but it’s almost certain they will employ their wingbacks when going forward.
Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane knows the danger City pose in their attack.
This is going to be a great tactical game where Guardiola mirrors Zidane’s formation to stifle it’s formidable forwards and midfielders.
Karim Benzema might be the key in this game for Madrid. He started the season strong but has been off form in recent weeks.
He has however played well in the Champions League and does come up big in big games like this.
The loss of Eden Hazard is a blow for Madrid. His play is the driving force to Madrid’s relentless pace in attack.
Who replaces Hazard is important. Gareth Bale seems like a natural candidate seeing that he has overcome his illness.
He will lineup on the right flank and be joined in attack by Benzema and Isco on the left.
Zidane will employ a 4-3-3 formation, which will likely be mirrored by Guardiola.
They might not be many chances in this game but the team that capitalizes wins.
One of the great masterminds of this game will have to be patient and decisive on the changes made in the second half of this game.
Guardiola will first have to equip his team to face an onslaught by Madrid in the first half. It will be coming.
City has the personnel to deal with Madrid’s pace. Rodrigo will anchor their midfield and play right above their defense to disrupt Madrid’s attack.
Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte will keep Benzema, Bale, and Isco in check.
This game might be filled with fouls and hard tackles. It will come down to who makes the first mistake.
City has never beaten Madrid but Guardiola has owned Madrid while in Barcelona. He knows the lay of the land and how important a win is for his club.
Free Manchester City vs Real Madrid Champions League Prediction: Manchester City
This game is a battle of coaches and tactics. Both are great coaches and teams. It’s game for tactical enthusiasts of the game and not for those looking for attacking football. One goal should do it late. The absence of Hazard will hurt Madrid. Aguero has a knack for scoring late goals.
