Real Madrid vs Man City: TV channel, live stream, plus team and injury news ahead of semi-final

Manchester City head to Madrid for the second leg of their Champions League clash.

Manchester City could progress to a second Champions League final in just two years, when they travel to Real Madrid on Wednesday.

The Sky Blues won the first leg of their semi-final 4-3 last week, putting them in pole position ahead of the return fixture at the Bernabeu.

But it will be far from an easy task against a Madrid side who have overturned deficits in the last-16 and quarter-final stages, eliminating Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea en route to the final four.

Even last week’s first leg showed what dogged opponents Real are, as they came away with just a one-goal loss in a game they were second best in for the vast majority.

The Sky Blues have also won their last four, including the 4-0 victory over Leeds United at the weekend.

Real also won 4-0 in between the two semi-final double headers, with the three points from the fixture against Espanyol earning Los Blancos the Spanish title.

But the focus is very much back on Europe now for the two clubs, with City aiming to win the Champions League for the first time, while Real have lifted the trophy on 13 occasions, more than any other side.

Despite Pep Guardiola insisting John Stones wouldn’t be available for the game, the England international was part of the group that travelled to Spain on Tuesday afternoon. However, Stones is unlikely to play in the clash due to a muscular injury.

In more optimistic news, Kyle Walker could return following a recent ankle problem, with Guardiola saying in his pre-match press conference that he’ll make a decision on the defender’s fitness on Tuesday night.

Nathan Ake is also back in the team following a recent knock, while there are no concerns in the midfield or attacking departments for City.

As for Real, Carlo Ancelotti will be able to welcome back Casemiro after the Brazilian missed the first leg through injury, but David Alaba hasn’t recovered in time for the second leg.
