Real Madrid Put To The Sword by Rampant Manchester City

Manchester City stormed into the UEFA Champions League final after a clinical 4-0 rout of Real Madrid. La Blaugrana could not hold a candle in the wind vs the Citizens in a one-sided affair at the Etihad in Manchester. Pep Guardiola’s men, fuelled by revenge, after last year’s defeat to Real Madrid, put on one of their best-ever performances to reach the final at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey.

Man Of The Match Bernardo Silva, put in a stellar performance bagging two goals in the first half, and Akanji and Alvarez completed the rout in the second half to knock out Real Madrid. With minimal possession, La Blaugrana failed to get into their game and had numerous players having an off-day.

Focus now turns to Manchester City who are three wins away from winning the coveted treble. With a date with Manchester United in the FA Cup final, Man City will look to seal the Premiership title versus Chelsea on the weekend with the UCL final in Turkey against Inter Milan on the horizon as well.

A field day for the bookies I am sure, Man City will be the outright favorites but this is where betting and gambling gets exciting. The Nerrazzuri will give themselves a 50/50 chance of winning and I am sure Simione Inzaghi will look to get an upset to win his first-ever UCL trophy.

Is Man City the greatest English team to play in the tournament? Time will tell as the season unfolds. Pep seems super confident after texting Man United legend Rio Ferdinand before the game and predicting a win. A lot hinges on the next few games for Man City but it is their time to shine. It is a little too early to call the games but it’s hard to look past a Manchester City treble.
