Real Madrid receives Manchester City on Wednesday at Santiago Bernabéu for the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League. The whole of Zinedine Zidane, urged by the elimination of the Copa del Rey against Real Sociedad and the defeat in the League against Levante last Sunday for which he gave the lead to Barcelona, ​​seeks a therapeutic victory that reinforces the team. For its part, the English club, which runs Pep Guardiola, seeks to finally consolidate itself in the Champions League, a competition that resists it. The citizen team, second in the Premier League at 22 points from Liverpool, will have the opportunity to avenge the semifinal of 2016, in which he was eliminated in the Bernabéu by a lonely goal by Fernando on his own goal after a zero draw in the first leg.

Roberto Martínez , Belgium coach, has talked about Hazard's injury to Movistar microphones:

"I am confident that Hazard can play again with Real Madrid this season. It is important to know Hazard's past doctor to opt for the best decision."

The Belgian end fell on his right ankle injury against Levante and will be out of the team for at least two months.

However, it is expected that the City will come out for dominance of the ball with Rodrigo and Gundogan as references in the center of the field. Zidane will try to counteract it with players with a more physical profile, such as Casemiro and Valverde ; although the ownership of Modric and Isco balances the system. In addition, the white team has Vinicius to surprise with speed after stealing the ball.

02/26/2020 20:37

Jorge Otero

City 11 is closer to 4-3-3 with: Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Mendy; Rodrigo, Gündogan, De Bruyne; Bernardo, Mahrez and Jesus. Guardiola reserves Agüero and Sterling as revulsives, although Madrid's defense will not have it easy to contain Mahrez's speed. The Algerian, an important piece in the citizen attack, has seven goals and eight assists in the Premier.

02/26/2020 20:31

Jorge Otero

Both teams are already heating up on the Bernabéu lawn!

David Álvarez tells you here the progress of Courtois in the goal of Real Madrid and its current moment: http://cort.as/-Uyxr

02/26/2020 20:20

Jorge Otero

One of the key pieces that Madrid holds is Courtois . The Belgian goalkeeper, after an irregular start of the season, has stabilized in the white goal and is reaping the best numbers of his career .

The figures speak for themselves: 0.64 goals received per game, better than in the 2013-2014 season at Atlético (0.65) and half that last year (1.33); 75% of stopped shots, better than in 2012-2013 (74.78%) in the Calderón, and 10 points higher than last year (65.38%).

You can read this article by José Sámano about the situation of both groups and the string of compliments that Zidane and Guardiola have exchanged in the previous meeting to try to put pressure on each other: http://cort.as/ -Uyxa

02/26/2020 20:11

Jorge Otero

Both teams arrive at this match required by different circumstances.

Madrid , touched after the elimination in the Copa del Rey against Real Sociedad and after giving up the LaLiga leadership to Barça after falling to Levante last Sunday, clings to the mystique of the Champions League, the fetish competition of Zidane , to fly again.

The City , meanwhile, with the League almost lost by the distance of 22 points with the unstoppable Liverpool , wants to finally take a coup in the Champions League, after years of millionaire investment in signings.

02/26/2020 20:09

Jorge Otero

The novelties in the Guardiola team are the recovered Laporte , who leaves Fernandinho on the bench, and the replacement of Kun Agüero . Gabriel Jesus will occupy the tip of the English attack tonight.

02/26/2020 20:00

Jorge Otero

Zidane leaves Kroos and Bale on the bench , so his lineup is more like a 4-2-3-1 or even a 4-3-3 with: Courtois; Mendy, Varane, Ramos; Carvajal; Casemiro, Valverde, Modric; Isco, Vinicius and Benzema.

02/26/2020 19:58
