Real Madrid vs Manchester City 1-2 – Highlights Download 26 February UEFA Champions League
This tie will be a big test of City’s abilities. Madrid have prevailed in their last four Champions League knockout ties against English sides. City have also never defeated Madrid in four previous meetings, losing both their away games here at the Bernabeu.
Madrid make three changes to the side that lost 1-0 to Levante last time out in LaLiga. Eden Hazard misses out with an ankle injury he sustained in that game, so Vinicius replaces him. Valverde and Mendy also come in. Benzema becomes the sixth player to make 100 Champions League appearances for Madrid. There are two changes to City’s team from their 1-0 win over Leicester. Otamendi and Jesus start ahead of Fernandinho and Aguero.
SUBS: Claudio Bravo, David Silva, Phil Foden, Joao Cancelo, Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling, Fernandinho.
