Uefa Champions League 2022: Manchester City Vs Real Madrid Preview, Dream 11 Captain & Vice-Captain, Match Prediction, Fantasy Football Tips, Possible Lineup and Other Updates

It's the clash of titans at the Etihad in the Champions League semi-finals with Manchester City taking on Real Madrid.

It’s Manchester City vs Real Madrid, a huge clash between 2 of the best and in-form teams in the world and they both will be battling it out at the Etihad for a UCL final place. It’s the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals and possibly the match of the season. Real Madrid would be relying on their experience in the Champions League and looking at the previous winners such as Benzema, Kroos, Modric and many more and then there’s Manchester City who are desperate as a club to win it and who were so close to do it but just missed out on it last season to Chelsea in the finals. Hence the experience of reaching a final before could surely benefit them against Madrid who have a massive history in the Champions League and they showed against PSG and Chelsea on how to never write them off in a big game as they can defeat anyone on their day.

Real Madrid are all about Karim Benzema and Luka Modric, these 2 players can run a game and humiliate any team in the world. So as far as Pep and City are concerned, if they manage to keep these 2 players quiet, it would be pretty much job done. Whereas Manchester City would be looking at Kevin De Brune who is the engine of this team and he would giving it out all to be in Champions League final once again as the last time city played the final, he suffered an injury during the match could not help his to win the tournament. Hence it would be a very intriguing match between these 2 teams and it’s very difficult to predict who’ll come out on top. It’s down to Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti.

Manchester City Vs Real Madrid Dream 11 Top Picks

Karim Benzema

Karim Benzema is a no brainer for any person in the world to select him in his fantasy team. He has scored 2 hat tricks in his last 3 champions league games and that tok against top sides like PSG and Chelsea. He has scored an outrageous 37 goals this season for Real Madrid. So yes, he definitely should be in the fantasy team.

Kevin De Bruyne

Kevin De Bruyne is known for producing a big performance in a big game like he did against Atletico Madrid in the first leg when he scored against a team whose formation was 5-5-0. He is leading the assist scoring chart for Manchester City by providing 11 assists this season and also scoring 14 goals which makes it an astounding 25 goal contributions.

Luka Modric

He is a Champions Lague player and has shown that ‘Age is just a number’. He produced some mesmerizing performances in the previous knockout games because of which his side is now in the semis.

Match Prediction: Who Will Win?

Coming into this game, Manchester City are surely the favourites to win it despite the incredible form of Real Madrid. City would be looking to at least have a 2 goal lead in the first leg as they must have seen that Madrid absolutely demolishes their opponents at the Bernebeu. And indeed if City do knock out Madrid, it would be very special for Pep Guardiola as he would be the only manager to knock Real Madrid out thrice in the Champions League. But as everyone has seen in the previous knockout matches of Madrid in this season’s Champions League, it’s fair to say that they can win against anyone and they have Karim Benzema who is probably a potential ballon d’or winner and he can definitely influence the result of this game with his impeccable goal scoring abilities. Hence looking at all the details, the match prediction is Manchester City 2 – 1 Real Madrid. The home advantage might just do it for City.
