Betting Tip: Man City @ 2/1 with bet365

It looks to be a decent Champions League semi-final draw for Manchester City considering that Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid were also lying in wait.

Naturally, Real Madrid are not to be taken lightly although their 2-0 defeat in Wolfsburg in the previous round of the competition illustrates that this team are defensively vulnerable and City will have a game plan to exploit their opponents.

Manuel Pellegrini will feel his team will need to win this first leg clash against his former club, with the Chilean having seen his team go unbeaten in the past seven matches and there was plenty to like about the way they beat PSG at the Etihad.

A 3-0 win at Chelsea and a 4-0 triumph against Stoke sandwiched a 1-1 draw at Newcastle, with Sergio Aguero and Kevin de Bruyne in excellent form and big performances can help City to a slender first leg win.

Yes, Real Madrid are star-studded with fantastic players and it has been five straight wins for Zinedine Zidane’s side since that defeat at Wolfsburg, although they trailed Rayo Vallecano on Saturday before rallying to win 3-2.

Indeed, Real haven’t kept a clean sheet in their past seven away matches and we might expect the attacking weaponry of City to pose their Spanish opponents plenty of problems on the night.

At odds of 2/1, it’s worth taking a chance on arguably the best team in England getting their noses in front.
