Team news

Pep Guardiola makes four changes for City’s Champions League semi-final second leg tie away at Real Madrid.

Kyle Walker returns to the starting line up for the time since suffering an ankle injury in our quarter-final second leg tie at Atletico Madrid last month.

The England international returned to training earlier this week and takes his place at right back at the Bernabeu.

With City holding a 4-3 advantage from last week’s compelling first leg tie, Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez also both return to the starting eleven.

From the side that beat Leeds 4-0 at Elland Road on Saturday, Nathan Ake, Ilkay Gundogan, Raheem Sterling and Jack Grealish revert to the bench.

Guardiola revealed earlier this week that John Stones was not fit for selection after suffering a recurrence of a muscular problem during last week’s first leg tie at the Etihad.

Teams

REAL MADRID: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Casemiro, Mendy, Valverde, Nacho, Kroos, Modric, Benzema, Vinicius Jnr
Subs: Lunin, Fuidias, Alaba, Vallejo, Asensio, Marcelo, Jovic, Lucas V, Ceballos, Rodrygo, Mariano, Camavinga

CITY: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, Rodrigo, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Foden, Jesus, Mahrez

Subs: Steffen, Carson, Ake, Fernandinho, Gundogan, Sterling, Grealish, Egan Riley, Palmer, McAtee, Lavia

Last time out

City ensured Liverpool’s stay at the Premier League summit was brief following a hard-earned but ultimately comfortable 4-0 victory over Leeds United.

The home side gave as good as they got in a physical, high-octane War of the Roses, but City gradually took control with goals from Rodrigo, Nathan Ake, Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho sealing victory.

FORM GUIDE

City have lost just once in our last 15 matches across all competitions, winning our last four on the bounce with 16 goals scored and just one conceded.

La Liga leaders Real have won three of their last five, including Saturday's 4-0 triumph over Espanyol, but have lost their last two European encounters at the hands of City and Chelsea.

Last Meeting

City and Real Madrid produced a Champions League semi-final few who witnessed it will ever forget.

It was a game that had everything in a ridiculously entertaining 90 minutes at the Etihad.

City held a two-goal advantage on three separate occasions, but were pegged back each time by a Real Madrid side who refused to buckle on the night.
