Champions League coming back and one of the most notable match was the return leg of 1/8 between Manchester City and Real Madrid (2h, 8/8). Real despite La Liga champions but they will be on the ball, with a disadvantage, having been led 1-2 after the first leg at home.
Man City have the advantage of 2 goals away to leg
Match will witness the peak, playing mind games between two top manager, Pep Guardiola and Zinedine Zidane. They have proven to be formidable in his tactical thinking, Pep continued good cost City top scorer while Real's European Championships with Zidane defense conceding at least La Liga.
Two opposite aspects will make an interesting match, but separately from this match disadvantage is weighted towards Real. They rely on the defense to the coronation in the domestic struggle, but each of them is not necessarily attached to the "monster" in Europe while City can play counter-attack and the gap that defense Real leave will be their take advantage to score more goals.
Real have scored at least two goals and conceding no more than 1 goal to have the opportunity to go forward. This will be a tough fight for Zidane and his students, because although Karim Benzema in top form and his side, Real also have many players who can score at any time, they no longer see a Man City of ancient times.
La Liga champions Real defense with a leading European sure
Manchester City forward is the deepest in the Champions League season 2015/16 when they lost to semifinal Real Madrid only 1 table, but that's when Manuel Pellegrini still led. Under Guardiola, "The Citizens" had not progressed too quarterfinals and it was assessed that they do not have the bravery and class needed to win the European Cup for the games.
That indeed is also managed by the City have struggled the last season before the team can play not inferior in efficacy, so their defense is always at risk of being countered. Pep their first season defeat against Monaco of Bernardo Silva, Mbappe and Fabinho, and next season they were defeated by Liverpool's tactics. Where Tottenham have quite lucky but also shows the City has yet to overcome weaknesses against counterattack.
But with upcoming match City placed into a rare position, they have the lead and keep the lead. Man City defense but that will not be appreciated and this team or be looked at as a team take the offset manually. Affordable Real still have a chance against the current?
Man City have kept a clean sheet ratio is very high when Laporte Courtyard
Very difficult because Manchester City's recent games is not an ordinary Man City audience thought. Aymeric Laporte comeback becomes extremely important, played 15 games this season with City Laporte in the team, Manchester City conceding only 4 goals and keep a clean sheet 11 games. In 10 recent games City keep a clean 7 games. Laporte performed admirably perhaps even better than Virgil van Dijk Liverpool this year.
While Real also did not have a key character of the defense, Sergio Ramos captain, through suspension. Although Raphael Varane and Eder Militao have played well recently, Ramos capable commander than both and the results showed that Ramos though stone with one in two people also were dominated by Real effective defense than Varane & Militao stones together.
Real defense not really sure when Ramos does not play
Manchester City's Sergio Aguero even without still will not prevent Real, even this season they scored average 2.9 goals / match in the absence of Aguero and scored 2.5 goals / match when Aguero played. The trio Sterling - Mahrez - Jesus appeared in Man City scored 103 goals in all competitions, not to mention Kevin De Bruyne will also appear.
City without Aguero remains the top European public goods. Ramos Real no doubt is the best defense to the continent, where the next match they need to attack more than defense. Zidane has never been eliminated from the Champions League as Real but fear that led to him coming days.
