Real Madrid vs Man City: Let's look at the predicted lineups

This is undoubtedly the game of the week with many believing it could become one of the most memorable semi-finals in European Cup history. So often when that's expected, the game fails to deliver but this time it feels different.

Real Madrid Predicted Lineup

Real Madrid were hopeless defensively in the first leg but, with that, they're still in the game and arrive in the second leg with what they'll feel is a stronger squad of players; Casemiro being fully fit is probably the big win. Can they keep City at bay whilst remaining an offensive threat?

Predicted lineup – Courtois, Mendy, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Modric, Kroos, Casemiro, Benzema, Vinicius, Valverde

Man City Predicted Lineup

Man City showed in the first leg that they're capable of taking any defence apart. Unfortunately, they also showed a couple of other traits that aren't irregularities, which is that they lack an out and out goalscorer and that they're far from watertight at the rear. All out attack is all City know so they'll approach this game with that as their main defence.

Predicted lineup – Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, Rodri, Silva, De Bruyne, Foden, Mahrez, Jesus
