The dream of a continental double with a maiden European crown still hangs strongly for Pep Guardiola’s men, but they have definitely been handed the tougher hand compared to domestic rivals Liverpool, on paper at least.
Still, City may have learned from their errors last term, and will hope to pull a few key faces through late fitness tests when they welcome Los Blancos to the Etihad Stadium.
Predicted Man City starting XI: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Jesus, Sterling.
With La Liga set to be wrapped up imminently following Barcelona’s loss at the weekend, silverware will return to Santiago Bernabeu this term – but Carlo Ancelotti will want the biggest prize of all.
Madrid have not been in the final since 2018, having missed out the last three seasons as Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Chelsea took home the top prize – and they will want to change their fortunes in that regard.
Predicted Real Madrid starting XI: Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Nacho, Marcelo; Kroos, Camavinga, Modric; Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius Junior.
