On Tuesday night, Manchester City will visit Santiago Bernabeu to play against Real Madrid in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League, hoping to take an early lead. The Sky Blues are in good form, having secured a 2-1 victory over Leeds United last weekend, and we can anticipate a highly competitive match.

Pep Guardiola will probably opt for a 3-2-4-1 formation again and is expected to make a few changes to the starting XI. Bernardo Silva, John Stones and Jack Grealish are all in line to play from the start.

Defence

Ederson will feature in goal for Man City after conceding one goal in his last outing. Ruben Dias will resume his defensive partnership with Kyle Walker and Manuel Akanji at the centre of Guardiola’s defence as they try to keep the opposition attackers at bay during the game.

Aymeric Laporte will be named on the bench as they wait to shine in the second 45 minutes if needed.

Midfield

Rodri and John Stones will operate in the central areas as they try to dominate the possession in the middle of the park and shield the back three in defence.

Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan will operate just ahead of them as they look to engineer enough chances for Man City to win this contest. Bernardo Silva will replace Riyad Mahrez in the right-wing position while Jack Grealish starts on the opposite flank; both will have to provide support from the wide areas and cut into the penalty box to create chances in front of the goal.

Kalvin Phillips will have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second half if needed.

Attack

Erling Haaland will lead the Mancunian giants‘ line on the pitch’s attacking third. The Norway international will continue his rich run of form and fancy his chances of finding the back of the net.

Julian Alvarez and Phil Foden will be named on the bench as they wait for a chance to catch the eye in the game’s final quarter if Man City needs a goal by then.
