UEFA Champions League

Why Manchester City Has No Chance of Winning the Second Leg Champions League Semi-finals

Manchester City faced off against Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. The match led to a 1-1 draw between both teams. unexpected results between both sides, as Manchester City were expected to blow the Los Blancos boys away with a huge lead. But that was not the case at all.

Both teams saw themselves as equals on the field of play. With intensive marking from Rüdiger, he was able to hold off Manchester City star player Erling Haaland, making him less efficient in the match. So it will be expected today in the second leg against the Sky Blues.

With this, I daresay Manchester City has a chance to secure victory at their home ground. Why? Going back to history, in last year's Champions League match, Manchester City defeated the Los Blancos boys in the first leg of the semi-finals to a 4-3 goal sheet, but in the second leg, the Los Blancos boys were able to cause an uproar after defeating the Sky Blues to a 3-1 goal sheet. Two of the goals were conceded in the dying minutes of the game. This saw the Real Madrid team go to the finals and later become champions. Looking at the statistics, such a trend might follow through this season against the sky blues team.

Real Madrid has a title under their belt this season, as they recently defeated Osasuna to become Copa del Ray champions. This already shows the kind of motivation the team will carry to the second leg, which in turn will change the wheels of the game and boot the Sky Blues out of the game.

The match is to be played at Eithad Stadium, home to the Manchester City team, at 8 p.m.
