CHAMPIONS LEAGUE action resumes ton Friday and Man City v Real Madrid could be a cracker.
Thrillers have been thin on the ground since the restart with no fans having a negative effect.
However, a clash between Pep Guardiola's Euro pretenders and newly-crowned La Liga champs Real is full of promise.
City performed a tactical masterclass to win the first leg 2-1 in the Bernabeu and are just 1-8 to reach the last eight.
Pep's boys have been pitch perfect at home since the restart with six wins out of six and an aggregate of 24-1.
They are 8-11 with McBookie to triumph on the night with Real 16-5 and a draw 10-3.
Real will be confident after 10 wins in row pipped Barcelona to the title but will be without Sergio Ramos and that's a blow. They are 5-1 to qualify but best policy could be to go for goals.
City are prolific at home and Real know they have to score at least two to have any chance of surviving.
Both teams to score should land at 8-15 while City and btts pays 19-10 at McBookie.
Sergio Aguero remains injured but City have plenty of firepower and I'm on Raheem Sterling to score first at 9-2 with McBookie. Kevin de Bruyne was star man in the first leg and the Belgian is 9-5 to net.
Real's dangerman is Karim Benzema who is 6-4 to score while fit-again Eden Hazard is 13-5.
Tonight's other tie sees Juventus aiming to overturn a 1-0 deficit to Lyon.
Juve won just two of their final eight games as they wrapped up the Serie A crown but I'm backing them to qualify at evens with McBookie.
