Our expert made a prediction for the first match of the 1/8 final of the Champions League season-2019/20 Real Madrid – Manchester City.
Real Madrid has not the best time: two consecutive losses in La Liga and only one victory in the last four matches in all tournaments, Azar’s injury, which disabled the star almost until the end of the season. Of course, these local problems cannot be compared with what Man City is struggling, but the Spanish have more gaming problems.
It seems to me that in Madrid we are waiting for a careful, closed game. Four previous official matches of these rivals, three (including both meetings in the playoffs in 2016), turned out to be with low amounts of goals.
I think no one will want to risk either – too much is at stake for the British, and Zidane is hardly ready to risk to play in open football vs. Guardiola.
Our prediction: Total Under 2.5
