City's latest showdown with Real Madrid is almost upon us...

Pep Guardiola‘s men travel to the Santiago Bernabeu for the first leg of our Champions League quarter-final with Real Madrid on Tuesday 9 April.

Kick-off is set for 20:00 (UK) as two of Europe’s big hitters lock horns for the third successive season.

In 2021/22 it was Madrid who came out on top courtesy of a dramatic late semi-final comeback at the Bernabeu.

That extra time victory meant a remarkable 4-3 first leg win for City at the Etihad ultimately came to nothing.


But last year it was Guardiola‘s men who progressed to the final, putting the 14-time champions to the sword in remarkable fashion.

Having drawn 1-1 in the Spanish capital, a Bernardo Silva brace, Manuel Akanji header and late Julian Alvarez strike secured a memorable 4-0 home victory for City to see us over the line.

Both teams come into the tie in scintillating form, with Los Blancos unbeaten in all competitions since January and City having not tasted defeat in 23 matches.

It all points towards another thrilling two-legged encounter, which begins at the Bernabeu.
