Here we explain everything you need to know about where to watch a Man City vs Real Madrid live stream for free tonight. Manchester City can take another step toward their first Champions League title when they meet Real Madrid in the second leg of the Champions League semifinals. Last week’s first leg ended 1-1 after Kevin De Bruyne equalized for the Premier League leaders at the Santiago Bernabeu. Pep Guardiola’s team will go all out for this game, knowing that their domestic crown is almost certain.

Los Blancos’ experience in the competition, as well as their recent record against City, will give them a lot of confidence heading to Manchester. Vinicius Junior will be looking to add to his goal in the second leg as he continues to demonstrate why he is one of the top wingers in the world.

Man City vs Real Madrid lineups

Pep Guardiola is likely to continue playing the 3-2-4-1 formation that has underpinned City’s incredible winning run in the Premier League.

Nathan Ake (calf) is sidelined but City have no other concerns. Kevin De Bruyne, who sat out the weekend win at Everton, is fit to play. Manuel Akanji is picked ahead of Aymeric Laporte, who started alongside him in the Blues’ previous match against Everton. That means an unchanged XI from the first leg.

Man City (3-2-4-1, right to left): 31. Ederson (GK) — 2. Walker, 3. Dias, 25. Akanji — 5. Stones, 16. Rodri — 20. Silva, 8. Gundogan 17. De Bruyne, 10. Grealish — 9. Haaland

  • Injured: Ake
  • Suspended: None

Carlo Ancelotti rotated most of his starting 11 in their La Liga fixture against Getafe in preparation for this game.

Eder Militao returns for selection after missing the first leg due to suspension, meaning Antonio Rudiger is on the bench despite his expert shackling of Erling Haaland last week.

Real Madrid (4-3-3, right to left): 1. Courtois (GK) — 2. Carvajal, 3. Militao, 4. Alaba, 12. Camavinga — 15. Valverde, 8. Kroos, 10. Modric — 21. Rodrygo, 9. Benzema, 20. Vinicius

  • Injured: None
  • Suspended: None

Man City vs Real Madrid odds
