European Royalty takes on the Nouveau Riche, 13 European Cup/Champions League wins vs zero. It’s Real Madrid vs Manchester City with a place in the final up for grabs.

The Manchester club are strong favourites to progress to a second Champions League final in a row and will be looking to make home advantage count in the first leg, before going to the cauldron of the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in a week’s time.

Real aren’t the kings of old, but have enjoyed a renaissance in Europe’s premiere club competition this year having already accounted for oil-funded clubs in PSG and Chelsea in the last two rounds. Perhaps the club can make it a hat-trick and progress to a final against Liverpool or Villareal at the end of next month.

Madrid will need in-form striker Karim Benzema to continue his impressive streak, while Luka Modric could be the key to unlocking the City defence. City will be relying on fit-again talisman Kevin De Bruyne to propel the club to a second straight final, where they’ll certainly seek a different outcome
