Real Madrid will face Manchester City in the next round of the Champions League.

While Los Blancos have every reason to be considered favorites in this tie, it will be tough for them to clinch their presence in the Quarterfinals while they compete for the Liga title every weekend as well.

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have not been consistent this season and are many points behind Liverpool in the Premier League table. However, it’s clear that they have great players and they will also be able to focus in the Champions League given their situation in the Premier League, so they will be a very dangerous opponent for Real Madrid.

Players like Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne or Sergio Agüero will be tough assignments for Zidane’s defensive line, who will need to be at their very best if Los Blancos want to reach the Quarterfinals of the 2019-20 edition of the UEFA Champions League.
