Man City vs Real Madrid match stats
City manager Pep Guardiola has also eliminated Real Madrid from the knockout stages of the Champions League on two previous occasions, beating them 3-1 on aggregate in the 2010-11 semi-finals with Barcelona and 4-2 on aggregate in the 2019/20 Round of 16 with Manchester City. Guardiola is looking to become the first manager to eliminate Real Madrid from the Champions League on three occasions. Real Madrid have only won one of their last six away games against English teams in the Champions League (two draws and three losses), although that victory did come against Chelsea earlier this month. No team has ever beaten two different English sides away from home in the knockout stages in a single Champions League campaign.
Raheem Sterling has netted 24 goals for Manchester City in the Champions League. If he scores in this game, he would overtake Paul Scholes (24) and trail only Wayne Rooney (30) for the most goals scored by an English player for an English team in the competition’s history. Karim Benzema has scored 12 goals in nine appearances for Real Madrid in the Champions League this season, including a hat-trick in his previous trip to England earlier in the month (v Chelsea at Stamford Bridge).
