      « Reply #1 on: April 24 2016, 12:49 »

      Manchester City and Real Madrid face at Etihad Stadium, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Champions League (Meias‑finais). In 3 head‑to‑heads in the last 3 years, the away team won 2, tied 1 and lost 0. The last head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 24‑07‑2015, and ended in a (1‑4) win by Real Madrid.

      Analysis of Man City

      The home team comes to this stage of the UEFA Champions League (Meias‑finais) after having eliminated: PSG e Dynamo Kyiv. In their last match, for the Premier League, they got a home win against Stoke City by (4‑0). In the last 5 UEFA Champions League home matches o Manchester City has a record of 3 wins, 1 draws and 1 losses.

      They haven’t lost any of the last 4 home matches for this competition. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, since 23 of the last 30 have ended with Over 2,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 4 of their 10 matches for this competition, but have been able to turn the score around in 2.

      Manchester City comes for this match after a home win against Stoke City, adding the seventh consecutive match without a win. Usually the coach Manuel Pellegrini plays in 4-2-3-1 with Aguero being the forward player of the home team. This player is the best scorer of the team with 28 goals scored. It’s important to highlight that the visiting team has great difficulty in meshing and organization of their defensive line. Even playing at home it’s foreseeable that Manchester City will look for the space on the back of Real Madrid once that the opponent has some slowness in the defensive transition. For this match the coach won’t count on Zucullini and De Bruyne, injured, and is still in doubt about Fernando, Yaya Toure, Sagna, Nasri and Clichy.

      Analysis of Real Madrid

      The away team comes to this stage of the UEFA Champions League (Meias‑finais) after havinf played in the previous rounds against: Wolfsburg e Roma. In their last match, for the Primera División, they got an away win against o Rayo Vallecano by (2‑3). In the last 5 UEFA Champions League away matches o Real Madrid has a record of 3 wins, 1 draws and 1 losses.

      Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 2 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 8 of the last 10 matches for the UEFA Champions League, they have reached half‑time in front in 6 of those 8 matches and have always held on to the lead until the end of the 90'. In the last 20 away matches for all competitions there are 1 periods that stand out: they have conceded 9 of their 23 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

      Real Madrid comes for this match after a tough win against Rayo Vallecano, thus adding the fifth consecutive victory in competitive matches. Despite playing away home it’s expectable that the coach Zidane will play in the usual 4-3-3 privileging possession football and organized attacks mainly through the flanks. The offensive trio of the home team should be composed by Bale, Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, being the last two in doubt due to injury. To point out that the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo has 47 scored goals this season. It’s important to note that Real Madrid has gaps in the attack-defense transition and defensive dead balls. In addition to the players mentioned above, the visiting coach doesn’t know if will count on Carvajal and Mayoral, both with injuries.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario for this match will be both teams score at least one goal. We believe it will be an open match with many chances for both sides due to the offensive power of the teams. In addition both teams show some defensive gaps and, against powerful attacks, it will be expectable that they’ll score a few occasions. So, we believe that a bet in favor of a goal of the two teams is of enormous value.
