Pep vs Don Carlo, History vs New Money, English Premier League vs La Liga. The Angles are endless, but the one thing that matters the most is that these two teams make up 2 of the last three winners of this competition. Man, City featured in two of the last three finals, losing to Chelsea in the 21/22 season and beating inter in the 22/23 season. 

Here are markets to consider adding to your bet slip...

Real Madrid vs Man City Betting Tips

  • Double Chance – Home or Draw 49/100
  • Both Teams to Score – Yes 63/100
  • Anytime Goal Scorer – Erling Haaland 69/50 
  • Anytime Goal Scorer – Vini Junior 43/20

Double Chance – Home or Draw 49/100 

The Santiago Bernabeu will host one of football’s most hated and loved teams. Many feel that City’s success is due to the financial muscle provided by their owners and that they have bought their success. That argument has been had in bars around the world. You cannot take away from the personnel that City has at its disposal. Players like Erling Haaland, Julian Alvarez, and Kevin De Bruyne. World Class Talents that have brought the sky blues their biggest ever honor. 

Madrid have had a lot of stars in their past, their latest is an Englishman who was desired by the elite English clubs. After seeing his performances in this competition, it is safe to say that Jude Bellingham is worth retiring a jersey over. Alongside Rodrygo, Vini Jr. and Joselu, what else can Carlo Ancelotti ask for?  

Real Madrid is on a run of 3 wins in a row and 13 games without a loss in all competitions. Manchester City have not lost a single game in their last 25 matches although 6 out of their last 8 matches ended with both teams on the score sheet. City has a record of being the first team to score in 4 out of their last 5 matches against Real Madrid. 

One factor that I think will weigh heavily on the outcome of this fixture is the domestic race for the premier league title. Real Madrid has a commanding lead in La Liga, while Manchester City are trailing Arsenal and Liverpool Fc who are one point ahead of the sky blues. Madrid has no pressure to win the first leg against City, but they will want to take a goal advantage to the Etihad. It is for that reason I believe that City will go home trailing to Madrid in this match. 

 

Both Teams to Score – Yes 63/100 

These two teams have met 12 times since 2012. Between them, they have scored 41 goals with their last two encounters producing 6 goals. If there is one thing this fixture never lacks, it is goals. With Goal Scorers like Bellingham, Haaland and Vini Junior on show. You can expect both teams will find the back of the net sooner, rather than later.  

Anytime Goal Scorer – Erling Haaland 69/50

You cannot talk about goals without mentioning Haaland’s name. He had a goal drought for 6 games for both club and country before finding the back of the net against Crystal Palace last week. He will want to build on the goal he scored last week.  

Anytime Goal Scorer – Vini Junior 43/20

The one opponent that Vini Junior has not enjoyed facing in the UEFA Champions League is Manchester City, he has lost to them on 3 occasions in addition to beating them only once. He has scored 2 goals against them and has 1 assist. The Numbers are not amazing, but he is a player on form and full of confidence. I expect him to hurt Manchester City when the meet on Tuesday evening at the Bernabeu.
