Real Madrid came into this box-office Champions League quarter-final tie top of La Liga, with a comfortable 8 points gap on arch-rivals Barcelona. Meanwhile, Man City are in the thick of a fiercely contested battle to retain their Premier League title with Arsenal and Liverpool currently ranked above them. However, Man City have a habit of finishing seasons strong.

You don’t have to look far into the past for the last time Real Madrid faced Man City, these sides met in last year’s semi-final. The first leg at the Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid saw the scoreline finished equal at 1-1, but Man City demolished their Spanish rivals 4-0 at the Etihad Stadium in what was arguably the English side’s best-ever performance in the tournament.

Man City would go on to lift the trophy weeks later in Istanbul, but now Real Madrid are looking for some revenge. And this time Los Blancos has a new weapon in their arsenal they didn’t have last time: Jude Bellingham. Arguably the most exciting young player in football, this match will be another chance for Bellingham to display his world-class talent in his native England. 

The away side come into this game in typically impressive form, having not lost in the Premier League since early December. However, recent draws against Liverpool and Arsenal have shown a more vulnerable side to Pep Guardiola's all-conquering super team, and that's something that Real Madrid will undoubtedly look to exploit. 

Here's how they line up: 

Real Madrid: Lunin; Carvajal, Tchouameni, Rudiger, Mendy; Camavinga, Valverde, Kroos, Bellingham; Rodrygo, Vinicius.

Man City: Ortega; Akanji, Dias, Stones, Gvardiol; Rodri, Kovacic; Grealish, Foden, Bernardo Silva, Haaland.
