Manchester City host Real Madrid on Wednesday night in the Champions League semi-final second leg. Here are the likely line-ups, channel and broadcast time of the match.
A short week after hanging Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium (1-1), Manchester City receives the Merengue on Wednesday evening at the Etihad Stadium. Pep Guardiola’s men are a priori in a favorable position, even if the end of the away goal rule leaves all their chances of qualification to Karim Benzema and others. The opposition promises to be bitter and perhaps spectacular, especially since the numbers are almost complete on both sides.

The Mancunians are expected to play in a 3-2-4-1 formation with Haaland up front, Grealish and Silva on the flanks in midfield while Rodri and Stones will be on recovery. Mahrez and Foden will start on the bench. On the Madrid side, Carlo Ancelotti will opt for a 4-3-3 with the inevitable attacking trio Rodrygo-Benzema-Vinicius Junior. For the rest, no surprise except the uncertainty about the choice of the Madrid tactician concerning the central defense. Militao starts slightly favorite in front of Rüdiger.
The probable compositions
Manchester City: Ederson – Walker, Dias, Akanji – Stones, Rodriguez – Silva, De Bruyne, Gündogan, Grealish – Haaland
Real Madrid: Courtois – Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Camavinga – Valverde, Kroos, Modric – Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius Junior
