The first leg goes today.
Two heavyweights of the sport go face to face as Real Madrid host Manchester City for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final today.
The teams have split their previous meetings down the middle, with each side winning three times and another two games ending in draws.
Madrid are, of course, the most successful club in UCL history, but their recent form has seen them slip down to third in La Liga after two losses in their last three matches. Meanwhile, City are on fire across the board, entering today’s match on a 20-match unbeaten streak in all competitions (with 10 straight league victories).
Will form win out or can the hosts draw on their experience to pull out another UCL victory?
Here’s everything you need to know about the first leg, including broadcast info and kickoff time.
