Real Madrid vs Man City by Rahul
Attention turn to the Bernabeau where Real Madrid have typically done well this season winning 14 out of their last 15 games at home, while keeping 5 clean sheets in their last 5 at home as well. Madrid however have an extremely volatile defence with Ramos and Pepe at the back as either one of them can lose concentration and go into the game with some wild tackles, which often sees them getting booked in many times. Roma was a great example of a team that took the attack to them in Madrid, but were let down by some poor finishing from Dzeko.
Manchester City know they have a simple job, get a score draw, and they are through to the next round. They will look to find that first goal and then sit back on the lead and break on the counter attack when he opportunities arises. They forwards Aguero and de Bruyne will be assisted by Navas and Sterling up front, and with them present, you can expect them to drive to the wing with pace and get some corners and set pieces that can out do their opponents. Both of them continuously aim to cross the balls into dangerous territory and especially Navas who doesn't give a good high cross, aims to keep them low which often leads to corners and that will bring Kompany, Otamendi, Fernandinho and possibly Toure into action of the set piece that could lead to goals.
I expect Manchester City to take the attack to Madrid and get at least 4 corners in this game.
