Betting tip UEFA Champions League: Real Madrid - Manchester City
Wednesday, 04.05.2016 at 20:45 hour
A thrilling match?!
At the first Champions League semi-final match last week we have been seen an historical match but not in the good way. It has been historical bad. While the performance of the first 45 minutes had the quality of a district league the last 45 minutes have been better. In the end the match has been goalless. That the royals only have been focused to the defence was probably because of the 0:2 defeat against Wolfsburg. Kick-off on the 4th of May is at 8.45 p.m. at the Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid.
Current Performance of Real Madrid
Even though Zinedine Zidane had spared some of the top players at the latest league match against Real Sociedad San Sebastián they were able to win with a score of 1:0. After a strong phase at the beginning they finally made it in the end. While world star Christiano Ronaldo had to pause at this match due to an injury he probably will return on Wednesday for the Champions League match. If he is not able to play on Wednesday they have to play without their strongest weapon and the team is no longer a real strong team but a strong team. This can make the difference at a Champions League semi-final match. At least Gareth Bale has proved at the 1:0 League victory that he can stand in for Ronaldo in the case of an emergency.
Current Performance of Manchester City
All stars have been spared. On the past league day of play Manchester had to play without names like Kevin De Bruyne, Bacary Sagna, Gael Clichy, Sergio Aguero, Fernando, Vincent Kompany and Jesus Navas. Manuel Pellegrinis rotation had an positive effect, the „Citizens“have lost against Southampton with a score of 2:4. However this defeat had no big effect because the fight for the title has been already lost. For the City eleven the Champions League is the only chance to get a title in this season. The motivation of the Pellegrini eleven is definitely there. The batteries have been recharged and in addition on Wednesday evening player David Silva will be back. Now the goal is to unite the individual quality and reach the Champions League final.
