Why is Real Madrid a safe bet to win?

Few head coaches can get their team up for a big match like Carlo Ancelotti. After the draw against RB Leipzig in the second leg of a Round of 16 matchup, Ancelotti dug into his team and said they had to get better.

They immediately did scoring 4 versus Osasuna and then beating Copa del Rey winner Athletic Bilbao 2-0. Vinicius Junior scored 2 against Osasuna and Rodrygo scored 2 versus Bilbao.

Real Madrid vs. Manchester City Betting Prediction

The reason we bring up the goal scorers is to highlight the fact that both teams are deep with strikers. Junior and Rodrygo for Real and Foden, De Bruyne, and Haaland for Manchester City means that this is going to be an excellent game.

City, though, has a slight edge. Bernardo Silva tends to take a game over when the stakes are highest. For sure, Pep knows this. So Guardiola is going to put the ball into Silva’s massive feet and have him control the pace of this matchup.

Doing so will allow De Bruyne to find open spaces for his excellent striking leg. As good as Real is, and even though this happens on their pitch, Pep has his time peaking at the right time. Man City gets it done.
