Manchester City travel to Real Madrid on Tuesday night in a huge Champions League semi-final.
Pep Guardiola’s side remain on course for a treble but face their biggest test to that idea possible as they head to the European champions.
Madrid, of course, beat City at this stage last year on their way to a 14th European crown in the most dramatic of fashions.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team are the acid test in Europe. Something about this competition brings out the best in them, even if LaLiga form has slightly dipped of late.
Still, City now have a certain Erling Haaland in their ranks. Enjoying a remarkable debut campaign in England, the Norway forward was signed for nights like this.
Here’s everything you need to know about the game.

Real Madrid vs Manchester City prediction
It would be foolish to write Madrid off in this competition but this feels like a different City. So strong, so structured and so dangerous, they should have enough.
Manchester City to 2-1.
