Competition: Champions League
Market: Man City and Real Madrid to draw
Odds: 28/11 @ 888 Sport
Manchester City and Real Madrid lock horns at the Etihad Stadium for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final clash tonight.
City know this is their best chance to gain an aggregate lead with home advantage and the fitness woes of key players in the Real side, but the visitors have been in fine form which could make for a tight affair.
The Sky Blues have been in fantastic form of late, coming off the back of five wins and two draws from their last seven in all competitions, while conceding just two goals from five too. City have shone in Europe, beating Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League quarter-finals to make it this far. Madrid are no slouches, however.
Los Blancos are favourites to win against Manchester City over the two legs, but they have problems with the fitness of their two key attackers Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo.
It could mean the Spaniard look a bit blunt in the final third, and may see head coach Zinedine Zidane settle for any result that sees them scoring and avoiding defeat, rather than pushing for a win. 888 Sport are giving odds of 28/11 for Man City and Real Madrid to draw tonight as a result.
