Apr 26: Man City v Real Madrid Preview


IT’S all about Cristiano Ronaldo at the Etihad – if he plays Real Madrid should qualify but if he doesn’t Man City have a chance.

Real without Ronaldo is like The Masters minus green jackets. He’s been their talisman for years now and is the one Galatico who is missed above any other.

The Portugal hitman missed Saturday’s 3-2 win at Valladolid with a thigh injury and while he’s travelled to Manchester he remains a doubt.

Without him Zinedine Zidane’s men would be out – he rescued them against Roma and Wolfsburg and has 16 goals in the tournament this season.

With Karim Benzema also struggling Real may have to depend on Gareth Bale who netted two at the weekend and the former Spurs man is 2-1 at 888sport to score again and has 18 goals in 21 games this season.

City have their own standout striker in Sergio Aguero and I expect him to score. The Argentine has banged in 22 in his last 21 Premier League outings and is 23-20 with McBookie.

Kevin de Bruyne netted in both legs of the quarter-final victory against PSG and can be taken at 16-5 at 888sport.

Defence isn’t Real’s string point and they’ve kept just one clean sheet in La Liga this year so both to score looks a good call at 8-15 with Coral.

City are 2-1 underdogs tonight at bet365 with Real 6-4 at William Hill. I can see a draw – especially if Ronaldo doesn’t make it – and City draw no bet is 11-10 at McBookie.

To qualify Real are favourites at 2-5 with Ladbrokes while City are 2-1 at McBookie.
