The first leg of Manchester City v Real Madrid in the semi-final of the Champions League is far bigger than just a clash between two teams currently third in their respective leagues. It’s a chance for Madrid to take a step closer to undécima, their eleventh European Cup win. For Manchester City it’s a chance to prove that they truly belong among the elite. After almost eight years of Abu Dhabi funding, a Champions League final would show that the money had been worth it.

For those who bet on sports in the EU, this is a tough fixture to predict. If you consider European experience, you would certainly bet on Real Madrid. However, City dominated Stoke at the weekend whilst Madrid had to come back from 2-0 down against 16th placed Rayo Vallecano; plus, City have home advantage.

When the teams met previously, in the group stages of the 2012-13 Champions League, their two clashes featured seven goals. If you’re going to be on Man City v Real Madrid, bet on lots of goals: here are 5 reasons why…

Cristiano Ronaldo

  • Bale First Goalscorer
    @ 6.00(5/1)
  • Aguero to score 2 or more goals @ 6.50(11/2)
  • De Bruyne anytime goalscorer @ 4.00(3/1)

Against Wolfsburg, Ronaldo’s second-leg hat-trick meant he’d scored the most goals in Champions League quarter-final history. With 10 goals at the semi-final stage, you’d bet on him catching Di Stefano’s record of 11. Basically, Ronaldo usually scores, especially in important matches. The only question is if he’s fit enough to play; if he does, bet on Ronaldo to score.

Gareth Bale

This weekend, in Ronaldo’s absence, Bale showed kind of sensational ability that brought him to Real Madrid in the first place. The Welshman turned the match with a glancing header and then scored the game-winning score after a sprint that would be not be out of place at the Olympics. He’s scored 18 league goals this season, and you should be on Bale to score against Man City.

Sergio Aguero

Aguero recently became the second fastest player ever to reach 100 Premier League goals, and has scored every 95 minutes this season. He’s world class, and if you bet on sport in the UK, you’ll know that betting on Aguero to score is usually a safe bet.

Kevin De Bruyne

  • Both Team to score
    @ 1.57(57/100)
  • Over 3.5 Total Goals
    @ 2.75(7/4)
  • Correct Score 2-2 
    @ 11.50(21/2)

Out injured for much of the season, on his European return De Bruyne scored in both legs of City’s quarter final against PSG. His finish of stunning precision won the second leg, and he’ll be hoping to have another decisive impact against Madrid. At only 24, a stellar performance here would add to his growing reputation and establish him as one of the best in the world. Bet on Augero to score, but he can assist too.

The Defenders….

Here’s the main reason there’ll be lots of goals: the overwhelming attacks compared to defensive frailties on both sides. City may well start with Otamendi and Mangala, who have been gaffe-prone against Premier League attacks less potent than Ronaldo and Bale. Real Madrid have a better defense on paper, but their attackers tend to neglect defensive duties. And, you can usually bet on Sergio Ramos to get sent off….
