Real Madrid have won their previous two matches in England this season.
Real Madrid are in the semifinals of the Champions League and they played the first leg at home against Man City which ended in a 1-1 draw. Vinicius Jr’s early striker was leveled by Kevin de Bruyne’s goal in second half.
Both sides will now lock horns in the second leg encounter of Champions League at Etihad. Real Madrid withheld serious pressure in the first half, but they had the better of proceedings in the second period.
While talking on Wednesday (via Marca), La Liga President Javier Tebas felt that Real Madrid would have been good value for the first leg advantage against Man City.
“It was a brilliant match-up, super interesting and ultimately, what was expected. I think Real Madrid deserved more. However, they have shown that, away from home, they are devastating in the Champions League.”
Real Madrid’s record against English clubs has been great and they won their previous two matches in England this season, against Liverpool and Chelsea. If they win it again, they will be in the final for the second straight season. In other semifinal, Inter went past AC Milan 2-0 in first-leg.
