A European heavyweight clash is just around the corner...

Pep Guardiola‘s side enjoyed our final training session in Manchester on Monday morning before setting off to Spain for Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg.

City will spend Monday night in Madrid before the crunch clash with the defending European champions at one of football’s greatest cathedrals - the Santiago Bernabeu.

Having reached the last four for the third consecutive season, we will be hoping to impress in Madrid before next week’s second leg decider at the Etihad Stadium.

The winner of this tie will face either Milan or Inter in the final in Istanbul on 10 June.

We go into the tie with the confidence of ten straight Premier League wins and emphatic aggregate Champions League victories over RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich in the knockout stages so far this season.

That means little however in this tie, when two of Europe’s best sides meet.
