Featured Game | Manchester City vs. Real Madrid

One match to enjoy: Karim Benzema vs. Ruben Dias. The Portuguese protector will be charged with closing down the man our team believes is the finest gamer staying in the competitors. Benzema, 34, is having by far the very best season of his profession. His 39 objectives is 7 more than his second-best season. He’s had back-to-back hat techniques in the knockout phase and is playing out of his mind. Can Dias, perhaps the very best protector on the planet, stop him?

Most most likely to rating: Benzema. A City gamer made good sense here due to the fact that they are the favorites, however many various gamers can score for them so it is tough to select. I’ll opt for the man who needs to be on for Real to advance. Benzema is managing spectacular strikes, being Johnny on the area time and time once again, and he has actually made his case to win the next Ballon d’Or. 

Man of the Match choice: Phil Foden. The young Englishman assembles a definitely electrical proving, scoring an objective and helping another to take house the honor as the male of the match. His technical capability and speed need to offer the Real Madrid center-backs some severe problem.

Match forecast: Manchester City 2, Real Madrid 1. Foden and Kevin de Bruyne rating, Real get their objective from Karim Benzema, and the English club completes the opening leg with a minor benefit.
