Manchester City visit Santiago Bernabeu as they face Real Madrid on Thursday for the return leg of the UEFA Champions League semifinals, hoping to make their way into the finals after a thrilling 4-3 win over Los Blancos in the first leg.

Los Blancos come into the match on the back of an emphatic 4-0 victory over Espanyol winning the La Liga title ahead of their semifinal clash in the European competition. Similarly, Pep Guardiola’s side look confident going into the match with a 4-0 win over Leeds United in their Premier League matchup.

Manchester City Vs Real Madrid: Talking Tactics

Pep Guardiola will set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and ask his players to keep maximum possession of the ball and facilitate the attack with enough clear cut chances to win the three points.

Carlo Ancelotti will probably opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and could instruct his men to dominate the ball and try to capitalize on the counter.
