Normally last year Real Madrid lifted the Champions League having seen off Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool in the knockout stages. Despite that success and their European pedigree, they are underdogs heading into Tuesday’s semi-final.
However, they face City having already eliminated Liverpool and Chelsea in the last two rounds as they seek to complete that hat-trick for the second straight season.
Man City are being hyped up for a treble this term, but they went into last season’s Champions League semi-final as favourites. City were on their way to Paris until Rodrygo’s late double sent the tie to extra time, then Karim Benzema struck to send Pep Guardiola’s side home.
Real have proven time and time again they can’t be underestimated at this level. Having been priced up at over 2/1 at home in the first leg by bet365, the Spaniards are great value for another big European statement.
Real Madrid get cup boost
Then while City are chasing a treble, Real Madrid secured the first part of a potential double with a victory over Osasuna at the weekend.
So the Spanish giants lifted the Spanish cup on Saturday night after a 2-1 victory, with Rodrygo scoring twice to bring more silverware for Carlo Ancelotti and Madrid.
Real have reportedly already got one over Man City, with the news breaking in midweek that they are in pole position for Jude Bellingham’s signature.
Now he’ll join Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni as the future of Real’s midfield, who will eventually replace Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.
Take note that, one man in the middle to watch is 27-year-old Marco Asensio. The Spaniard isn’t being heralded as the future for Real, but he’s a great option right now. Ancelotti is using him well, having had a hand in a goal in three of his last four starts.
