Real Madrid vs Man City at a Glance
When: Tuesday 9 May (21:00 CET kick-off)
Where: Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, Madrid
What: UEFA Champions League semi-final first leg
Having played their first competitive game in September 2012, Real Madrid and Man City are now very familiar with one another. While they have identical records in their eight past encounters (W3 D2 L3), 14-time European champions Madrid have tended to win at this stage of the competition. They eliminated Manuel Pellegrini’s City in the semi-finals in 2015/16 (agg: 1-0), then beat Pep Guardiola’s side at the same stage last season (agg: 6-5) after extra time in a remarkable second leg at the Santiago Bernabéu.
City has not won a major UEFA trophy since the 1970 European Cup Winners’ Cup, though they reached the UEFA Champions League final in 2021, losing 1-0 to Chelsea in Porto. They have won four Premier League titles under Guardiola, but the biggest prize of all still eludes them. However, in Erling Haaland, they may have a weapon even Real Madrid cannot resist. In the Norwegian’s only previous meetings with Spanish clubs, he scored twice in each of his three meetings with Sevilla – two with Dortmund, and one with City on Matchday 1 this season.
Real Madrid: Courtois; Carvajal, Militão, Alaba, Camavinga; Modrić, Kroos, Valverde; Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinícius Júnior
Man City: Ederson; Akanji, Rúben Dias, Aké; Stones, Rodri; Bernardo Silva, De Bruyne, Gündoğan, Grealish; Haaland
