The second semi-final of this year’s Champions League is stuck at 0-0 as Manchester City and Real Madrid head to the Santiago Bernabeu where both teams will attempt to win and set up a date with destiny in Milan. The game is evenly matched but home ground advantage will surely favor Real Madrid in this much anticipated encounter.

Manchester City will know that it will be very tough for them to win at Madrid but they will be satisfied with the fact that their opponents have no away goal so goal scoring draw will see them go through to the final. That being said it will tough to get a draw since at home Real Madrid are lethal and very few teams have managed to get a result from them.

Real Madrid on the other hand will feel confident but there will surely be nerves in relation to injuries to two of their key players, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema. This will hamper the hosts if they can’t play but nevertheless I think they have enough star power with the likes of Gareth Bale, Jese and Isco to get the job done.

I think Real Madrid will win this game and it might be quite a big win for them. I am expecting a lot of goals from both sides since these two teams have exceptional attacking talent but weak defenses. As far as betting in concerned, I think looking at goals is the best option and over 2.5 goals might be a good bet. We are getting a pretty good price on this and I think it will come through more times than it does not so it is value. 

Pick:
Over 2.5 Goals
