City defeated Atletico Madrid last time out in their attempts to reach a second final in quick succession, although this will be a completely different proposition.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side, as they showed against Chelsea, simply know how to produce big moments on the biggest stage. They may not always convince, but Madrid have the kind of star that hurts any team in the world.
Few, of course, would doubt City’s quality, although they have slightly less experience of getting results in this particular competition.

Manchester City vs Real Madrid team news
Joao Cancelo’s suspension in the first leg exacerbated Pep Guardiola’s defensive crisis. Kyle Walker missed the win over Watford with an ankle injury, along with John Stones.
Nathan Ake was only fit enough for the bench after some health issues, while Ruben Dias played his first complete game in a while, meaning City could be pretty light in the defensive department.
For Madrid, Modric rested in the weekend’s victory against Osasuna, although there are doubts about David Alaba’s form.
Prediction Manchester City vs Real Madrid
Madrid certainly have the ability to get results out of the bag, even when massively outclassed.
