Manchester City vs Real Madrid live stream: match preview
After an enthralling 1-1 draw in Spain last week, Manchester City welcome Real Madrid to the Etihad today for the second leg of this finely poised Champions League semi-final.
Man City are just one win away from winning their fifth Premier League title in six years, but that will be the last thing on Pep Guardiola's mind when his side take to the pitch tonight. The former Barcelona man will still take heart from City's league form, though, with an 11-game winning run putting them on the brink of retaining the trophy. They're also unbeaten at home in the Champions League in 25 games, a record that stretches back to September 2018 when Lyon won 2-1 in the opening game of the group stage.
Pep Guardiola has resisted his usual urge to tinker for big games and gone for his strongest available side tonight, with John Stones replacing Laporte at the back. Behind Haaland, De Bruyne, Bernado and Grealish come in for Alvarez, Foden and Mahrez. It's exactly the same line-up that started the first leg last week.
Real Madrid come into the game fresh from seeing their arch rivals Barcelona win their 27th La Liga title on Sunday – but if there's one competition the defending champions feel comfortable in it's this one. Their record against City isn't great, though, with no wins from their last four visits to the east side of Manchester, but they have already knocked two English teams out of the Champions League so far this campaign. The Spanish giants have proved time and again that you can never write them off, especially in the latter stages, so this one certainly won't be over until that final whistle blows.
Carlo Ancelotti gave seven key members of his squad a rest on Saturday, with only Courtois, Militao, Camavinga and Valverde starting against Getafe. They all keep their places tonight, with Carvajal, Alaba, Kroos, Modric, Vinicius, Rodrygo and Benzema joining them. Only Militao didn’t start the first leg.
Manchester City vs Real Madrid kicks off at 8pm BST / 3pm EDT today, Wednesday 17th May, at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester. Make sure you know how to watch a free Manchester City vs Real Madrid live stream by reading below.
