When defending champions Manchester City and 14 time winners Real Madrid were drawn out together in the Quarter Finals of this season’s Champions League, there was an immediate buzz of anticipation. Last week’s first leg at the Santiago Bernabéu did not disappoint, with the lead changing hands on multiple occasions in a thrilling 3-3 draw that sets up the second leg at the Etihad perfectly.

Ahead of the eagerly anticipated return fixture, sportsbook CopyBet are adding to the excitement by giving their social media followers the chance to win a £50 free bet by correctly predicting the score of this second leg tie. 

It’s easy to say after a first leg tie that featured six goals but the stats suggest another high scoring affair looks guaranteed. Manchester City have scored 11 times in their last three games. Real Madrid have scored in each of their last 28 games in all competitions and have found the net in each of their 21 away matches so far this season. 

City’s last defeat was way back in December of last year, a run of 26 matches in all competitions. Pep’s side will be full of confidence playing at the Etihad where their unbeaten run stretches even further. You have to go back as far as November 2022 for the last time City tasted defeat in their own backyard and Real Madrid will know they have their work cut out. 

CopyBet have Manchester City as favourites to advance to the Semi Finals. The English side are 5/8 to win on the night and 1/3 to qualify. Real Madrid are 7/2 to record a win at the Etihad and 9/4 to qualify for the final four by any means. Another draw after 90 minutes is on offer at 3/1. 

In the goalscoring markets there are a host of big name players to pick from. Erling Haaland has come in for some criticism of late after just one goal in his last seven games. But with 33 goals to his name in all competitions this season, you’d be a brave man betting against the Norwegian finding the net again on Wednesday. He’s 10/11 to rediscover his scoring touch. 

For Real Madrid, Rodrygo has netted four goals in his last three games, including in the first leg and the Brazilian can be backed at 10/1 to break the deadlock in this second leg tie. England’s Jude Bellingham meanwhile is 3/1 to add to the 22 goals he has already registered in a stunning first season with the La Liga side. 

It’s set to be another captivating encounter and if you think you can predict the outcome of this huge Champions League clash, enter CopyBet’s Prediction Challenge by submitting your guess on their social channels.
