Real Madrid vs Manchester City betting tips: UEFA Champions League preview, predictions & odds

Draw and both teams to score (29/10)

Following an enthralling first-leg, Manchester City take a slender 1 goal lead to Madrid.

Man City were the more dangerous of the two sides in the first-leg but spurned a hatful of opportunities, while Madrid were clinical.

Pep Guardiola's side should get the better of the hosts and advance but the Spanish champions are likely to make it another closely fought contest.

Karim Benzema to score two or more (7/1)

Benzema once again demonstrated his utter class in the first-leg as he netted a brace at the Etihad.

The striker has now taken his tally for the season to 42 goals in all competitions.

He is the Champions League's top scorer with 14 goals.

The Frenchman would need to score a hat-trick to equal Ronaldo's record for most goals in a single Champions League campaign.

Match preview: Real Madrid vs Manchester City

Real Madrid and Manchester City produced a Champions League classic last week at the Etihad.

City threatened to run away with the tie but they missed several big chances, whilst Madrid were clinical.

The hosts stormed into a 2-0 lead with early goals from De Bruyne and Jesus.

Benzema hit back with a very well taken goal to leave City ruing their missed chances.

Foden later restored City's two-goal advantage in the second-half only for Vinicius Jr to produce another quick response.

Ancelotti's side then once again fell behind by two goals as Bernardo Silva scored with an incredible strike.

But once again, Madrid had a response, with Benzema scoring his second of the night from the penalty spot.

The tie is now finely poised at 4-3 with the two teams heading to the Santiago Bernabéu for the second-leg.
