Despite losing the first leg at home, Zinedine Zidane’s side will be full of confidence after a 1-0 victory against Getafe in their last game. Real Madrid has already won the Copa del Rey this season and will be hoping to add the Champions League trophy to their cabinet as well by winning an unprecedented 15th title.
On the other hand, Manchester City is on a quest for a treble and will be eager to maintain their focus as they approach the final few games of the season. The Sky Blues come into this match fresh off the back of a 3-0 victory over Everton in their last Premier League fixture.
Real Madrid has been dealt a significant blow as young defender Eduardo Camavinga was injured in their recent game against Getafe. The Frenchman has been a revelation on the left-back since joining the club and his absence will be felt. Real Madrid will be hoping he recovers in time for the match, but if not, David Alaba is expected to start in his place.
Manchester City, on the other hand, has no injury concerns and is expected to field a full-strength lineup. All eyes will be on striker Erling Haaland to see if he can find his scoring boots after being stifled in the first leg by Madrid’s defense.
